  1. Its getting like a BL dealership at your place !
  2. One for @brownnova. Seen in Market Harborough today
  3. Ad claims 12 months mot, it has only 6 weeks. I am in MH but suspect its a seller from the travellers
  4. I recently sold my 505 which i had owned for 30 years, but 20 off the road. I too did not have the welding ability and with 3 cars, 1 garage, needed a decison on what to do Which car means the most too you ? For me my Riley 9 meant the most, 505 was sold and Corsa will depend on how long the mot fail is. I did not feel sad when the 505 went and it has improved my mojo for doing the Riley. Keep 1 or 2, but only you know which one you would rather have Hope that helps
  5. Thanks Amazon Happily daughter and Grandkids are ok. They say its not their fault ! Must have been my daughter revering down the street at 30mph +
  6. I have been going for decades. A proper event with such a wide range of cars to see. Two particular memories come to mind, a 6R4 in the wet and a cira 1906 grand prix style car going round while it was snowing. Its normally bloody cold as well
  7. 5 months now. Would chase them, but have a 21 plate loan for all that time
  8. Quite often if you use the bearing number rather than application it can work out alot cheaper
  9. I was given this lhd R4 a few years, got it on road and used it for a while before losing storage and had to sell it. Sadly does not appear to survived unless it went abroad again
  10. 4 months now. Dealer and Lexus have no clue now. ECU reconditioned. The Car (LS220d) was delivered running on a recovery truck, now they cannot even get it to fire. Hoping they buy the car or provide a similar replacement
  11. Pleased to see the Pontiac escaped major damage after all the work you put in and hopefully you can get your house habitable soon. Nick
  12. Just wish my 505 was roadworthy seeing this.
  13. Whats the record for a main dealer to repair a car ? Son in laws 60 plate Lexus is suffered a injector failure, 3 months later same part failed. New injector fitted under parts warranty and car wont start now. They have now had the car 3 months, yes 3 and have decided the ecu is faulty and is obsolete and nobody will attempt to repair it Absolutly staggering. Mind you the 70 plate loan car is clockingup the miles Rant over
  14. A100 went from raised door handles to flush door handles. It was a easy way to ask customers if there was a choice of parts to identify the model. Perhaps there is something for the Toyota
  15. Absolutley brilliant post, had me laughing out loud much to mrs tigerfox's displeasure as she does not like me enjoying myself
  16. I could not have done the welding and have no problem them doing, it was only £120 all in. But you can see where the ordinary man in the street would feel ripped off getting a bill with a extra £75 on it
  17. Garages dont do themselves any favours do they ? Took the Picasso in for mot at 8.30, by 9.30 its online as passed with a advisory for rusty sills They ring at 11.30 to say they had to weld a hole in the chassis leg and put some injector cleaner in to pass the emissons Its my regular garage and i used to trust them fully, not so much now
  18. Needs the alternator replacing along with the belt and probably a engine mountingm not capable to do it myself these days. Its been off the road 3 years I think, but we have owned it for 12 or 13 years and probably too expensive to take to the garage Got other tat on the drive now, Phaeton Lowline
  19. Just had to have another front droplink fitted. Only lasted 18 months and would have expected to last longer as I have not done 10k in it Anybody want a broken Corsa 1.0
  20. I think that was a 12/4 Facon, sadly it did not survive
  21. A broken down Landrover Excellent
  22. I was at a Goodwood Revival a few years ago when the Battle of Britan Lancaster flew over, very low, it made the ground shake and also set off countless car alarms
