  1. I have an Apeman camera (I thought Maxxo must have one from the start up sound on his pov video) and I would say that night time filming gives pretty good results even out of town with no street lights. The rear cam is of the potato variety though.
  2. What, a car boot fair on now!!! I have to wait until Easter for any around here now the Lewes antique car park market is no more... Seeing this reminds me of my first experience of the dishonesty of others. A black & silver Corgi Bentley just like that one was one of my favourite toys when I was young and it always lived in my pocket so when I started school it went with me. One day it didn't get put into the pocket of my shorts, rather it stayed in my rain coat hanging in the cloak room and when I collected my coat at home time, it was gone. When I told the teacher, I was told off for bringing it to school! A harshe life lesson at a young age haha! What strikes me now is how strange to have just the boot opening and also did it have a spare wheel in there?
  3. Amazingly neither of our cars have anything wrong with them to just live with, must be the first time in a long while. I mean things that have gone wrong rather than how the cars were from new. It has made me think though that stuff that was broken and didn't work when I bought the car I can just live with, anything that goes wrong, I have to fix as I can't stand it...
  4. Funnily enough I saw one today in Brighton and I'm not sure if I put it in this thread a couple of years ago when I saw one at Ardingly antiques fair. Anyway I think they look great in a strange way!
  5. Apparently a few years ago Chevrolet workers chanced upon a consignment of unused Allegro steering wheels... Fast forward to 2019 and just before the sign off of the new C8 Corvette the budget had been exceeded and one engineer remembered those wheels...
  6. I've only ever had A Series powered Metros, 998 X reg "L" & a 1275 MG B reg both obv four speed. My dad had a K Series one for a while, but I never drove it and as he came from an MG Metro then a Pug 205 GTI I don't think he liked it much and only kept it a short while. That does look very nice and I think being a bit high at the back is good as in a Mini since it helps with weight transfer when getting off the line smartly.
  7. Twini Mini Scamp https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Scamp-Twin-Engined/402080167053?hash=item5d9dd8748d:g:VQkAAOSw6FheP~7Z
  8. I will add my opinion as it's as valid as anyone else's. I think he was hard on the brakes after the crash as you can hear the swooshing sound of the tyres trying to remain stationary as momentum moves the car. We will never know though so guessing is fun, but pointless! Either way it really wasn't his fault and he certainly didn't deserve the tirade from the other driver and remained remarkably calm despite her. Not sure I would have!
  9. Police fast response training in 1997, the car is a Volvo T5 & sounds just like my current T5 when pressing on. Some interesting cars on the road and as someone puts in the comments, hardly any BMW or Audis... I thought of putting this in the standards of driving thread after seeing how many react to a car with blue lights and sirens in their mirrors...
  10. They probably mean the car isn't big enough for the UK these days haha...
  11. I've just seen this on Volvo forum, never seen one in real life or even heard of it. Honda S660, looks like a cross between an S600 & an FN2R, I rather like it! Said it made 90bhp... Like the background in this...
  12. Why do they make it so difficult? On a Citroen C4 that came out in 2004, to get the wipers into service mode (as they sit under the bonnet when parked like on the Merc) turn off the ignition and then switch on the wipers in the next 30 seconds. The wipers go vertical and it's easy to change the blades, all cars should be like this. Also turning the ignition off on this while wipers are running, wipers park!
  13. If you haven't had a look at this conversion, Lexus V8 into Mk1 Focus then it's worth a watch. He's getting close to finishing it now as well...
  14. I think that is right as 12 inch wheels were standard from then. I have lots of Mini books, but that's stupidly hard to find out for sure haha!
  15. This Ford Falcon Station Wagon is often at Cooden Beach... I suppose it's Australian...
  16. Don't know all the ins & outs, but I think basically BL went bust and Innocenti was sold before BL got bailed out. They also had a (Bertone designed) Mini based hatch well before the metro... Sorry about the off topic...
  17. Over ten miles? Impressive, but no go... In that case you are disqualified haha!
  18. I just picked up a few toys in Lewes junk shops today and I'm pretty pleased with them... First up a Corgi Police Mini Van... I had one as a kid and this is just how I remember it, but whe I found it recently it had the back doors replaced with a single one made from a bit of venetian blind & most of the paint was missing plus all the tyres had melted haha! The only bit missing is the Alsation dog! Was £2.50 so not bad.. I was tempted by a Dinky Jag Mk2 police car with all the bits still on it, a Corgi Rover 2000 Monte Carlo withone tyre missing and a Renault Dauphine convertable with screen still intact (not sure what make) I must say that an up to date database of what people want would be useful. I did post some stuff in Hastings a while ago and someone said they were interesting, but I didn't go back for ages and when I did they were gone so... Next up was a Sebastian Loeb Citroen C4 Monte winning VTS... Perfect condition no box for £4 And lastly a model I never wanted and hadn't been looking for... Brand new in box Welly 1:24 Mini Cooper, I couldn't resist Not even taken it out of it's box yet haha Paid £7 and it had stickers of £9 & £12 underneath. Happy with that
  19. I need to have go at this in my C30 T5! Ten miles is it? From cold?
  20. So fishless fish & chips? Isn't that just chips then?
  21. Daughter was home with C4 VTS this weekend so I gave it a wash and found someone has scratched it all around the boot lid with what I imagine to be a Stanley knife Pics on this thread.. https://autoshite.com/topic/29249-c4-vts-now-belonging-to-daughter-no2/page/3/ Why are people such bastards?
  22. If I was looking for a large car now it would be on my list especially as I now know it can come with the Ovlov T5 (thanks whoever mentioned that a couple of pages back) Here is a strange tattooed man talking about why he likes it...
