  1. I always thought that the Fuego was a cool car. My work colleague had a turbo with Turbo written on he bottom of the doors in big letters. His was quite rusty though and he ended up trading it in under the scrappage scheme as he could get more money for it that way. Shame
  2. Still a looker the 75. I hope that once you have sorted this the MOT will be straight forward for you
  3. Many thanks yes it is a bit different to more modern cars even the P6 feels much more modern to drive. Its a lovely thing though. Thanks again Thanks Matt, Im not sure it didnt come with any history with it as it was a deceased persons before, I will check it out though many thanks Thanks I found out that they didnt do a bench on these for some reason but made the seats stick together so 3 could sit in the front as the manual versions they wanted it to be a floor change rather than column. Thanks again Thankyou im quite smitten thanks again
  4. As above the other day I said that I went looking at a car but I got to Bridport and turned round told the owner and they were ok about it. A couple of days later from this my father has been on my facebook account sending messages to the owner who I had already told him that I wasnt going to buy his car. My dad offered to put the money in his account but he refused saying he had someone coming round for it. I then got a message while I was getting some tyres for my smart car saying the other person cancelled. Well I actually made it there this time on Friday 16th June. My dad told me to go and knock on the door and he got his mat out of the smart car and looked underneath. The man came out with a couple of friends and then my dad said it was ok underneath-He didnt want to do any more welding after sorting out my P6. I then took it for a test drive and the car seemed slow but drove ok . I then went back and told my dad to drive it and he did and he came back smiling saying yep its fine-a little slow but a service etc will sort that. My dad transferred the money into the owners account and we set off. I got about 5 miles away and it started to smell like brakes. I got to the roundabout on the a35 and coolant came up and hit the windscreen and steam from under the bonnet. I went round the roundabout and someone was beeping there horn at me and I pulled into a layby. I then contacted the breakdown people and they said they would put it through as an emergency as I was on an A road. After an hour and a half a recovery company rang me. They said we have been tasked to take you back to Plymouth but we dont have a driver to do it tonight so I had 2 choices. They take the car to Dorchester then wait to see if the breakdown company could sort a relay or they would take the car back to their depot and then deliver it when available. I said just deliver it when you can. Well Today Sunday 18th June 2023 my car got delivered to me on a low loader. I have alrady spent much to much on bits for it but Im really liking the car. Here it is a 1963 Wolseley 16/60 automatic. Its not mint but the body is tidy but it was a car that wasnt used much as the previous owner passed away and then the person I bought the car off bought it from the deceased estate.
  5. Looks great love lupos. That photo makes the grey one look alot smaller than the yellow one.
  6. I saw a car for sale in Poole. A wolesley 16/60. I agreed a price with the seller and made my way to go and have a look. I live in Plymouth but I got to Bridport and then something came over me and I messaged the seller explaining that I wouldnt be coming to look at the car as I really couldnt justify it while I have other things going on. The seller seemed ok with it but I have been feeling guilty as I dont like being a time waster but things are changing in my life and that £3000 could be used for rent for 3 months. I wont go into m changes as it has alot to do with my mental health etc. I just felt awful for the seller.
  7. Good luck looks like you are well prepared for any issues( hopefully none arise)
  8. Looking good Matt I have a 2200sc aswell. My father took it apart and completly sorted out the rust on mine. Just a few niggly bits then it will be on the road.
  9. They are lovely looking little cars, Never had the 25 mk2 only zr mk1 but they were brilliant fun little things great cars would have another
  10. Sorry I hope you didn't think I was being off. It wasn't my intention
  11. @grogee I don't understand you laughing emojee on my comment. That 75 has been for sale many times. I saw it a while ago with different pictures and the bodywork is knackered. Then you have cambelts water pump etc. The sills probably need looking into also brakes tyres etc. It soon ads up. I only state this as I have easily spent silly sums on my old 75s. They can chew money
  12. Hi this one is a pre launch, The 75 was launched in early 99 but they made some at the tail end of 98 for photoshoots etc, Then some were kept by management and others scrapped. I had an s reg one many years ago but the T reg pre production ones are more common. On the VIn plate it would show two '00's denoting a pre launch car. Its a nice spec but the bodywork would be alot to fix and by the time cambelts etc have been done you would be nearly £4000 in if not more.
  13. Looks good always nice to see your thread popping up. Such an eclectic range of cars you've had truly impeccable
  14. Great cars I have had 4 and loved each one,
  15. Please may I cancel myself from this please something has come up. Many thanks Thomas
  16. My mother heard a bang about 19:40 tonight so she looked outside to find my dad's Jag smashed into with it's wheel bent over,the other wheel is straight. Other person has admitted they did it. It was only motd a couple of weeks ago,bucket of arse, sorry the picture isn't to clear.
  17. When I have bought gear aslong as its the same brand the zip was normally the same. But failing that I paid £40 for mine to have new zips.
  18. @500topsThat wouldnt be Tesco Roborough would it? Im sure there was a Tractor run out as There were loads of old ones driving round
  19. Or in my case look at said recipients profile to get an idea then find out it shows the last few people to view the profile. Ill have to be more sleauthy this time
  20. As its the same engine as in the Jaguar S type( which I owned and then gave my father) the electronic handbrake automatically comes on when you turn the car off-It should show the handbrake sign on the dash, Also pulling away will automatically disengage when a load is found on the engine. Good luck looks a lovely vehicle.
  21. Corrr that's lovely. I'm sure the premium is bottom of the range funnily enough. May be wrong but I'm sure I was told somewhere.
