  1. This is superb…. They were everywhere… and now you never see them…. Except for here!
  2. You too can be like me…. Or I could buy a second one…
  3. Yeah, but you can’t put a price on the awesomeness of daily-ing an old Volvo… Our Volvos should meet sometime!
  4. No more appropriate vehicle for this plate…
  5. I very nearly bought one of these a couple of months back. But when I drove it it left me a bit cold, so I passed. Slightly regret it, think it would have been interesting to own! I realised I forgot my MG Midget, that truly was shite, the most unreliable car I’ve ever owned. Broke down more times than all my other cars ever had up to that point combined! It was yellow though, so automatically awesome. Still going and still local, saw it on the A55 a couple of weeks ago!
  6. An excellent spectacle it was too!
  7. Fun fact… I’ve driven this car (briefly). It was very enjoyable! Very much enjoying reading your write ups Talbot, and hope to get along to one of the races this year to support!
  8. Fixed it… couldn’t have Mr Fowlers dentistry difficulties exacerbated by this thread.
  9. Yeah… we bought the MG ZS to do everything… and have the same problem! Two cars seats and a teenager do not fit in the back. Just means we need my Volvo! I do like a Duster, and definitely considered one when we bought our MG… but we got tempted into Leccy!
  10. Definitely worth a try… (he says having bought one a month ago…)
  11. Owned a few convertibles… and tend to agree with the statement. Bit then most of mine have been a bit shite in some way! This MX5, was shonky, a bit knackered and I loved it… This MX5 was well sorted, great condition and all round lovely… it left me cold. I liked my £300 Saab… despite it being a bit ‘tired’… The TF… time will tell… but its a nice one, maybe that doesn’t bode well… Is this really a convertible? If so, it’s far from refined, it’s not smooth and certainly not sporty… so surely shite… I love it!
  12. The Octagon of Octogenarians.
  13. Casually eating a chicken and stuffing sandwich in a cafe when a traffic jam begins to for outside…. And what a traffic jam it was!! It was the steam run from the Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza! He no idea it ran past where we had chosen to get lunch! Is it ok to admit I find Steam/traction Engines fascinating!
  14. Its not the tour bus of a really shit Earth wind and fire tribute band is it?

  18. The Tuesday night weekly meets at Mavericks Wales have resumed! The first couple were a bit boy racer, but the sun was out this week! There was a meet there on Drive it Day too, so @Bren you might have seen cars from there on the A548 as Mavericks is on that road near the big ship.

  22. The Llangollen museum guy remembers the group very fondly and said we were welcome back when I visited a few years later! Very much looking forward to this!
  23. I drive mine most days... Ironically yesterday I didn’t drive any of the classics, as we went to the zoo and they have loads of great parking and free charging for electric vehicles right by the entrance, rather than getting the kids out somewhere in the back of beyond in the overflow car park! So we took my wife’s modern so we could park closer… 😂
