  1. Hnggg! What a colour, scrape that muck off the steering wheel and snort it and the corrosion will dissappear before your very eyes.
  2. That's a difficult one, first I thought Lancia, but no, I think it's British and coach built. A bit hard to establish the size of it but I think it's a Bentley.

    Kitten kapers

    Well done indeed, look forward to a few piccies. I went and looked at mkVII a few weeks ago, just a bit early for me, 1962, I'd like a later Regal really.
  4. You have my sympathy; I've had a few scrapes and a couple of serious bashes over the years, none of which were my fault. Took me a while to get over one in which a 'friend' of mine near killed me.
  5. I remember that, one of his better writeups, he praised the VDP in all respects bar it's handling.
  6. No wing mirror(s)? Very unusual for a steering box to wear out, they always have a good dose of play in them, can be tightened a little... But only a little.
  7. Yes! It annoys me greatly, might be OKish on the wings but needs the growling cat on the rear. The fact that the rest of the car looks like an anonymous BMW doesn't help either.
  8. My Grandfather, RIP, wouldn't drive anything but an Austin, German cars were strictly verboten and God forbid any mention of the Japanese. Some of the old boys used to like a Skoda MB, maybe a Renner4 or Saab 96 if they were a bit socialist but most stuck to a Luton, Longbridge or Dagenham product.
  9. No such thing a 'grandpa spec' nowadays, soon everyone will be driving 'premium' German euroboxes.
  10. Good work....carry on! Bought a much better offside front wing for mine last week, will try and get it prepped next week time allowing.

    Crazy Trannies*

    I tried a crazy tranny in the back of an Alfa Romeo once, it was very stiff, I'll be buggered if I'm doing that again.
  12. The Taunus V4 is really rather good. It's compact, fairly light, strong and reliable. Really the only thing I could hold against it are the siamesed exhaust ports.
  13. Good stuff; nice to see pics of a '96 which isn't mine...I've done a little work on the front wings recently, they'll be getting top coated soon, then the rad and pipework can go back in and the fun stuff fiddling with Nikki carbs and linkages can begin. How did you get on taking the rear wings off? I haven't got around to the rear end yet; is it just a couple of bolts? We're they seized up?
