  1. Nice - my parents went through several small Triumphs when I was kid. I remember being disappointed with the appearance and quality of dashboards in 'inferior' cars. Anyone else prefer the look of these without the front bumper or is it just me?
  2. Is it wrong that I like the look of that X type estate?
  3. Is @Mrs6C selling a Volvo? https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/11498076
  4. Seen previously on the thread but the TF coupe looks 'right' - even now. The EXE is more 'of its time', which may well be how I'll feel about the coupe in a few years time . . . if I've still got my marbles then.
  5. Well, he's already established that two is better than one, ergo ......
  6. Only wood, lead and slates. Done properly will be good for 40 years or more - and then fit for 'maintaining' rather than replacement.
  7. Certainly not high mileage - more an illustration of my inner schoolkid - one with a Casio calculator in the eighties
  8. I have a zs (manual) and freelander (auto) with the 2.5 KV6 (as well as a couple of MG TFs and three BRMs - serial Rover licker) but no 75 /ZT Think an auto 75 with the V6 would be nice.
  9. Can't believe seller isn't here already https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202103039674207?make=FIAT&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&advertising-location=at_cars&model=MULTIPLA&radius=1500&sort=relevance&postcode=sa153pw&include-delivery-option=on&page=1
  10. Pretty much anyone in a city centre being developed with tower cranes dotted about. Apart from that - the two plonkers in the video. I'm not 100% certain but there's a clue at the start of the video with some alarm wailing away - then stops. I think the alarm was the crane's warning that it was approaching its limit. I think it fell silent because the moron crane operator turned the 'over-ride' key to silence it and continue to operate . . . .right up until the point it overturned. There is a remote possibility that the crane's safety system was not properly calibrated (I am aw
  11. I was getting worried about this one - hadn't sern it for a couple of months.
  12. Right wheels, two tone paint job and ghia badge on the wing - looks like?
  13. Thanks for the offer, sorry if I've played a part in your decision to delete the thread. Tried to PM but "cannot receive messages".
  14. Is it gold or is it beige? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ROVER-25-GTI-1-8-VVC-K-SERIES-143-BHP-73000-MILES-CAMBELT-IN-LAST-4-THOUSAND-/203251172252?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 Not the best example and possibly not worth more than current bid but MOT'd until October.
