  1. Starter solenoid packed up? You need one of these...
  2. Is that the fashionable central steering option there or do you pop rivet a couple of bits of fridge door over the holes at the end of the project?
  3. Fuck me that's ripe. It's the U boat that sunk the Luisutania?
  4. Hello, hoping you maybe able to assist, whilst I am able to view the forum and leave 'likes' I cant seem to contribute to threads or send any messages using my Samsung android phone, no problems using this desktop though. Is that possibly this forum as I have no issues elsewhere?
  5. Tidy cars them 404s, suspension will be long travel like all the French stuff, worm diff too so bulletproof. Compare to the British equivalent, the Austin Cambridge....
  6. Mine was leaking like a sieve when I bought it. Easy enough to silicone around the pollen filter box. The blower motor was also not working, got my arm in there with some WD40 and pushed the motor spindle to and fro. Got it going and then greased it. Its lasted over a year since then. GM era Saabs ain't a patch on the real deal but they're cheap enough rammel so I'm not complaining.
  7. The '73 fuel crisis might have had a little to do with it too; some fantastic motors were in the pipeline before then, only to be cancelled or at least modified.
  8. 'Vauxhall and Rover', I'm suprised that Rover sanctioned Winchester motor co. popping V8s in Vauxhalls, even if they were GM ones.
  9. Tidy as fuck that; very much my sort of motor, shame so little of that age that's in decent nick turns up anymore, Jealous I R!
  10. You play a V8 Vedette, I raise you a Matford V8. Old French cars are fantastic, in fact most French cars up to the end of the last century have much to offer.
  11. 'Climate', was that an early admission of guilt by those beancounting scallywags I wonder.
  12. Did they ever make Yuppies oop North? I thought they were something that only us down here were blessed* with. I hated the 80s with a passion, although with a little hindsight the cars were alright. Had an accident in a 340/360 and it looked after us pretty darned well considering the speed of the impact.
  13. Big fan of the Voldafs, bin them wheels though- bloody awful
