  1. They went through a phase with hydrolastic suspension in the 60's so maybe it was one of those she means.

    WTAF is going on with that car anyway?
  3. And some bloke's just turned up over on the blue having bought a 67 Rebel SST convertible.

    Eh? how does that work? Like - "hello is that acme odd jobs?, yes, what it is, I need you to come and remove an unstable kitchen unit from the interior of my storage caravan.......yes it is an urgent job, can you get round immediately? I mean it's not sturdy at all" Also WIndows? we don't need no steeekin windows and So which is it Einstein? Does it need the locks or is your magical locking method superior to old fashioned things likes doors, locks, keys etc? FFS, presumably I could climb in through the friggin hole where the window was anyway.
  5. I think this is how we'd all like to picture our old motors ending up after we've moved 'em on.
  6. Why does red paint do that? My old Sierra did it too.
  7. I am trying to get a trip to our Dublin office to coincide with a free weekend so I can go back up the Antrim coast and get some more Bushmills.
  8. That's funny - I got a job where I didn't get paid when not working (like a posher, kinder, less formal and much more lucrative version of a zero hours contract) so I immediately cancelled all my PPI and mortgage protection as I knew it wouldn't pay out (this was years before everyone started getting compensation for it). Back on topic - on one of my ftps with my Jag the AA man tried to flog me this cover (not a hard sell at all) but I declined on the basis that I more often managed to limp to the garage to have my wallet emptied - and those ones weren't covered - as observed above. I am not against insurance but I am less risk averse as I get older - and running shite means it's often effectively disposable - I know it's cliche on here and pistonheads, but I lose less on a shitter I've had a year and have to bridge than the depreciation on some shiny new thing - although for me it's more about the fun and not caring when some berk backs into it in the Co-Op car park and drives off.
  9. When you think about it - that is a bloody simple "gearbox"
  10. It's all about the detail - I love the bicycle bell on the sacktruck in this shot from that forum link -

  12. There might be some strikes or demos yet

    New Top Gear

    I don't watch live telly - unlikely to get around to watching on catchup (if it's on there). I am pretty selective about car TV and I too prefer stuff like Roadkill and fifth gear where there's actual car content. I certainly won't be bothering with Clarkson et al on Amazon. I spent the small bits of the weekend where I wasn't spending time with my daughter wrestling with putting a new starter on my AMC - which typically involved much more swearing and getting greasy than a simple job with two bolts and one electrical connection has any right to.

    Overrated stuff

    There's never been a proper replacement for Jalopy or Old and Slow Car.
