  1. Spotted this in Mumbles today. It surely has got to be the finest remaining example in the Uk. It was absolutely immaculate on top and underneath.
  2. What a truly epic find. My grandparents neighbour - who was a builder, had an identical dropside Cabstar on a W plate brand new back in 1980 . As for what colour it should go - it has to stay blue - it's the default Datsun commercial vehicle colour. 😊
  3. Don't cry for me.... Argenta. https://ebay.us/x1onz1
  4. Standard fit passenger door mirrors became a standard fit legal requirement along with rear seatbelts and indicator side repeaters on all cars registered in the Uk from January 1986.
  5. If it was me i would have to buy that back, even if it was just to get the satisfaction out of pulling all that shite off it!
  6. That would be the Hunter based Ginetta - GRS Tora.
  7. Most unregistered C6s were laid up in Citroen showrooms up and down the country. If you were in one of the top performing dealerships - you were offered extra backend incentives if you took on a C6 from Slough. This meant that every six weeks you'd have a different C6 arrive on the back of a trailer to be swapped over for one in the showroom. These cars remained the property of Citroen UK rather than dealer bought stock - but the proviso was that they had to be displayed prominently in the showroom. It did mean though that as a dealership you had to register a C6 demonstrator to qualify - it
  8. Is that the black 99 turbo 2door that ended parked up just beyond the turn at Langland corner??......
  9. I'd love a 2 door Avenger - I went with my father to pick up his brand new back in 1974 - but for many years now the price of 2 door shells has been ramped up by the historic rally boys who have seemingly bottomless pockets of cash to spend. 2door Avengers are very hard to find - this car will end up - like nearly all 2doors as a rally car.
  10. Same door handles but completely different doors.
  11. Back in 1981 - I entered the competition in the Tv times to win the Green Matra Rancho used by Jack Douglas in the Shillingbury tales - I didnt win it...but was gutted when I didn't! Whilst it wasn't showing up as taxed for a number of years - it was only 2010 when it finally met the grim reaper. 😢 From the similar television era - unlike many I was very partial to a bit of Triangle starring Kate o Mara. In this she was gifted by her father a brand spanking new early spec Ice blue Saab 900 turbo - always thought they were the dogs danglers when they came out - would still love one. It w

    Car chases

    A bit of Fiat 124 vs Chrysler Alpine Action 😃
  13. The 406 Coupe lives a happy pampered and relaxed life with myself down in South Wales. ☺️👍
  14. Here are the two styles of Rostyles fitted to Chrysler group cars in the 70s. On the left is the Standard Rostyle - On the right the Dunlop Dunstyle which was fitted to later 1974 onwards Avenger GLS and Gt, Sunbeam Rapier H120s and Hunters. As an interesting footnote - the original 1979 Brochure Car for the last of the line Chrysler UK 2 door Avenger Specials still exists - as can be seen here and resides down near Plymouth.... I think a set of Rostyles would set it off quite nicely too!
