  1. That top deck is going to have kittens every time this nears a low bridge. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Agreed nothing magical ,but plenty of reports of Tesla blocking 3rd party repairs using their superchargers , I know right to repair should allow for this but it doesn’t mean the manufacture has to do it for free ,so well within their rights to sell software equipment for many thousands££. My 1st car was a Renault 5 that was 6 years old and was ready for the scrap. Manufacturing needs to sell so have no incentive to make something last ,although the body lasts longer now something else gives , DPF , Cats , fuel pumps , ecus , abs units ,all expensive bits just wait a few years and everybody is going to be moaning at battery replacement , heat pumps , fancy lcd screens , electronic modules prices . Or if Elon is pissed off he just won’t let you into your car[emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. How rude , surely nothing to do with ham fisted home mechanics prising engine casings , barrels with big screwdrivers , chisels etc.[emoji3]. Seriously ,international cooperation needed now , Triumph crankshafts cast in Spain , machined at Hinckley ,then assembly at Thailand , now some engines are shipped back from Thailand for bike assembly in Hinckley, could be due to Euro tarriffs , either way crankshaft has already done 10000miles before the engine has started[emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. I presume when you mean “serviced” that would include 2 front wings that would have dissolved in 12 months [emoji3][emoji3][emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. SMT were the local dealer ,I was looking for the logo that they used to put on ,I think instead of a window sticker , Scots of a certain vintage will remember, the logo was only about a 1&1/2” square I think done in chrome effect. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  7. Straight away my eye drawn to the Colt , there’s something wrong with me , the Visa is a far better bet[emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  10. Jasmine way , Aberdeen , I had a short spell building on the high rise flats for Wimpey ,that was 1983 so I’m guessing 84/85 for this photo Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  21. I feel your pain , we had planned for my pals 50th in 2009 to go to the artic circle on the bikes, however ferry stopped from Newcastle in 2008.It was getting ridiculous looking at other options as would spend half our holiday just getting to and from Norway. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  24. Didn’t make reserve …only £6800, the £31k guide a bit optimistic considering the Colt car company’s older colts only made 11k and 15k back in March . Plenty of these rust free in Thailand /Far east / Australia going cheap , just have to ship them over. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  25. These didn’t come in to the country with vinyl roofs , I’m wondering if it had accident damage as it was a trade trick to hide a multiple of sins on botched body repairs , I got rid of mine in 1984, parts weren’t the easiest to get quickly back then , be interesting now. It’s currently at £3200 …. A lot to re-live my youth. Nice bit of overspray, I don’t mind but if your wanting top dollar then put the effort in. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
