    Got some amount of grief on the SLK forum, for daring to ask a question about air con... was basically told I was stupid, didn't know what I was doing and I should leave it to the professionals.. Got a long spiel about microns, temperature to pressure ratios, how I should replace every single part in the system and how it'll never work..
    God, I fucking hate car "clubs" Made me right angry so it did.

    Good news is the A40 flew there and back. Pulls really well, far better than a standard 1098. Didn't use a drop of oil or water. Developed a slight miss after getting stinking hot crawling through a very congested Harrogate on the way home, but soon cleared with some fresh air. Much better updates available when I've sold some shit and freed up some funds for adjustable telescopics on the back end and uprated valves for me armstrongs on the front. Seats will have to waitĀ šŸ˜„

    Out at a local show in the 205 today.
    For those who haven't been before definitely check out Port Solent Car Meet in Hampshire every 2nd and last Sunday.
    The rules are a bit confusing so it's probably best to bring something pre 1995Ā

    Car wiring diagrams absolutely suck!
    I have usedĀ circuitĀ diagrams for as long as I can remember: they show HOW things should be connected AND how it should work.
    Those wiring diagrams only show where the wires go, not what the switch etc. does. Makes fault finding so much harder than it need be, even for a car as electrically minimalist as this Lanchester. It will be something simple. Which makes it more frustratingĀ somehow.Ā

    I had a bit of a good update planned for tonight but it turned out an anticlimax in the end. We had planned a good run out to acid test mine and a 280 TVR Tamsin that our Tony bought not long after I got mine. The Motorist up in North Yorkshire was running a "cars you don't see anymore" meet today. Well, from where we are (east lancs) what a nice run. Burnley to Skipton, over Blubberhouses to Harrogate and onward. Run went well, the little Austin seems to be getting quicker all the time. The meet itself, what a waste of time. There were plenty of people there, but no cars save a row of mark 2 and 3 cavaliers.
    We parked up and got a brew and there were folk all over ours taking pictures and stuff. Poor buggers, they'd obviously been there all day waiting to look at something decent and ours was the best it got. Then another poor bastard in a lovely A60 Cambridge turned up having driven all the way from Sale. No sooner had we said "what a lovely thing, didn't they look mint as an estate" than one drove in! And look at the paucity in front of him and drove straight outĀ šŸ˜‚
    Anyway, some shit photos cos I was a bit deflated.

    Yup. Farina designed or influenced? Similar to the A60 imho, which is in no way a bad thing.

    Thanks. The Peugeot 404 is one of the prettiest cars ever made in my opinion. I really want one. So I must honestly say that I'm a little jealous of this one too, it's a fantastic car fleet you have.

    I do indeed, she's my favourite by a country mile, definitely my forever car, she's slowly panel by panel getting restored.

    I was after a cheap daily no particular make or model in mind, just had to be cheap, simple and reliable, this came up locally for Ā£1500, was a recent Hungarian import, I managed to get him down to 1300 and it's been my daily a few months now hasn't missed a beat and I've probably done about 2000 miles in it and carried all sorts, it's definitely shedy and I plan to fix the bodges but I'm not going to go crazy with it as I absolutely love it's rustic charm.

    Nice fleet - of course I'm leaning toward the flower power Lada as I've ust pulled mine out of storage - great for local hassles.
