  1. I’ll be going... I don’t have a classic car to take unless I push my grandad’s CX all the way but I’m looking forward to what is pretty much shite central for a day!
  2. I believe for me it was one of these beauts. We kept it for many a year. I can remember waiting outside the school gates in it on my first day too
  3. Oh you bet there’ll be plenty of podcasts!
  4. Thanks. I haven’t really spoken about it on my show yet, I wanted to wait until I sorted out the funding page, but it will get a segment this week. I did however interview a group of Fiat owners in my NEC Classic Car Show Special way back in Novembery time, featuring Sam Glover talking about his 126. Shame I can’t conduct a decent interview but hey ho. Cheers.
  5. Thank you. I’m really looking forward to it. And thanks for the Facebook like!
  6. I’m very glad you posted. It’s a charity very close to our hearts at Duggystone Radio. We know it’s a good cause but it’s even better to have that opinion backed up. A support vehicle would be amazing (and save on flight costs!). If you get an early 126 with the 594cc engine and most importantly chrome bumpers, they’ll sell in Italy for about £1500 and in Britain for a good £4000. So there’s a sizeable profit margin that can go to helping Headway.
  7. https://www.gofundme.com/f/italian-fiat-126-road-trip-for-headway-charity?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1 So Duggystone Radio this summer is going on a bit of a road trip. Really its gonna play out a bit like the Mighty Dacia trip from 2018. Four of us presenters are jetting off to Italy to buy two Fiat 126s. From there we will (try to) drive them back to the UK and eventually go on to sell them. The profits raised from the Fiats will go towards both keeping the station afloat and most importantly the charity Headway. Headway helps people suffering from brain injuries and offers a free support line. They are helping to reduce what is the biggest cause of death in young people today. Right now, Duggystone Radio doesn't really have the money to do the trip which is why we've set up a fundraiser. If you donate just a couple of quid you're not only helping us mess about in Italy (although of course you'll be seeing plenty of videos and posts about it!) but in the long run you'll be helping a really good cause too. Thank you.
  8. Wheel Of Misfortune offered some great cars. Metros, Pandas, Novas, Renault 5s, Kia Prides, Suzuki Santanas...
  9. My grandad had one identical to that (V840OOE). It’s still around apparently. To this day every time I see a Xantia Estate I’m taken back to caravan holidays as a child and that whistling noise when wind hits the roof rack,
  10. Thats the automotive equivalent of putting a toaster in a bath...
  11. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F254458370749 This would be my car of choice. The Beetle used by Larry in Man About The House. And its a rare Jeans special edition.
  12. I don't know about Moscow subways but the St Petersburg one was very nice. I'd say this one is one step up from a Stagecoach Midland Red Bus... maybe two up from those trains that have tiny seats at the sides you can only perch on.

    Car chases

    When I saw the name of this thread I immediately clicked on it to see if this was on there. Simultaneously the greatest and shittest car chase the world has ever seen
  14. Chodspeed my dude. Very intrigued as to your purchase.
