  1. Vauxhall in the 80s did the very best interior exterior colour combos. Fact. Grew up as a GM child (unfortunately a parade of Bedford cfs and Astra vans) but saw enough managers cars to appreciate the level of taste 😁
  2. Those arrow series cars have really got my attention. Lovely simple crisp design. This one would be the best of all worlds really, especially if the conversions done well. 60s tin with no ford badge seems criminally under valued https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/204077886683?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=r4zKQq5LQQ-&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=svwv9r4orxa&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  3. Absolutely. Kudos if it gets done but there's not enough wiggle room at the money. Like you said, just buy a better one
  4. Arrrggghh why is fucking everything worth going to in the South of England (actual completely immaterial as I'm on my way to Kos right now) πŸ˜„
  5. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/155172469800?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=RYN1SUxhRr-&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=svwv9r4orxa&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Nice cars and a clever piece of design at the time but surely not at this money? It's a ground up job.
  6. Bit late to this but congratulations. And love the nails too pal. Really suit you πŸ˜†
  7. By all means any recommendations welcome. Smiths neg earth rev counters in supposed good working order are up for 80 to 100 pounds on ebay. I can't justify paying that. So any suggestions would be mint.
  8. What makes the rev counter bud? I need one. Was going to get a smiths one and make my own pod to mount on the under dash shelf, but not at the money they fetch second hand
  9. Plus one on that. Useless fragile awkward shite. On the plus side its reasonably rot proof (dependant on grade), but other than that little to say for it (I work with it a lot cos paper Mills and wet humid environment. Makes you look like a welding god though!
  10. Don't. I put new leads and a new cap on mine this week. Uncle whose the actual car mechanic said no that's wrong. This is the firing order and rotation I said so your wrong. Fired it up and got two cylinders. An embarrassing climbdown that was πŸ˜„
  11. Temp gauge on my austin is 3/4 up when hot. Never above 90 o the stat housing and top hose. 50 year old smiths gauges probably aren't at their most accurate!
  12. I'd love to know what point it became almost fashionable to be overtly a loud, braying, boastful snob. He might as well have said "I have lots of money and belong to a club the little people can't join". Cunt. I hope his batteries degrade 😁
  13. I reckon he has a point though. Cutting your losses with an old car when it's times up. Something I've never learnt mind πŸ˜„
