  1. Seller seems to thinks it's absolutely thrilling that it was (might be) THE Autocar test car! Let's give them a call and see what they make of it now.
  2. It sounds worse and worse as you describe it, so take your point. The reason I made my suggestion was that a friend of mine always said to me "The cheapest car you can have is the one you already own". It might not be in this case.
  3. You've already spent the money on the car. If you bridge it, its lost. So the question is, could you get anything better for the money it costs to repair it? If the car is otherwise sound spending the money could be the most cost effective response, and if you get two years out of it that would be cheap motoring.
  4. How about this *mint Zephyr https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-zodiac-mk4-executive-mark-4-Zephyr-consul-classic-car/143870126534?hash=item217f53e9c6:g:EAkAAOSweXdfyATR
  5. Most magazines now (in any genre, not just cars) are thinly disguised product placement. I used to like guitar magazines, but they have become like reading an Andertons brochure. Journalism isn't what it used to be.
  6. Lovely, My Dad had one - very bad scanned pic attached. Not sure what model. One of his cars I never drove sadly.
  7. Double whammy with Corona for me. Was hoping to attend my first Shitefest, and support Coventry City who were looking likely for automatic promotion. Hoping both can be rearranged for later in the year.
  8. I did love an Avenger back in the day. Seemed very solid and powerful compared to Cortinas of the same era.
  9. Something wrong when a Bond Bug is £5k and a Jag XJ is £650.....
  10. I had a new 600 as a company car and it was amazing (apart from a brake failure on the M6). They seemed like they would be bullet-proof with the Honda engine link. Not may of them left now, but one of the most comfortable cars I've ever had.
  11. Link below to photos to warm your hearts. https://designyoutrust.com/2019/01/stunning-photos-from-the-seventies-london-motor-shows/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter Also, includes Valerie Leon - times have changed.
  12. A while ago I found an informative and hilarious thread summarising all of the abbreviations, terminology etc on this site, but I can't find it now. Can anyone send me a link please?
  13. I remember reading about these in Hot Car in the 70's and thinking they were a working mans Ferrari. They still look terrific but haven't seen one on the road for many years. Top work with this, and hope you can get the welding done before it dissolves in its Italian manner.
  14. Have been lurking here for a few weeks after watching some of Dollywobblers videos. Although not a shiter myself enjoyed reading the forum but have been perplexed by some of the terms and abbreviations, so here are my two questions. 1) What is chod? I get the feeling I know what it means but where did it come from? 2) What does OMGHGF stand for?
