  1. Just two powerfully built directors going about their business
  2. Looks minty. If you've not already, m539 on YouTube restores a lot of rare E31s and is worth a watch if you've time to spare
  3. I'm 29 and I'd absolutely love a blower Bentley. Just something about them ever since seeing a drawing of one as a kid. I love the madness if sticking a fuckoff supercharger out the front Based on a few "young people" groups I'm in on FB, there are a lot of people about wanting classics. I put it down to the popularity of stuff like Car throttle tbh
  4. Seems you have two of my dream cars, E31 8 series and Range Rover classic. Both look glorious, well played
  5. Xj40 with touring suspension and 15inch wheels is the best riding car I've ever been in. Better than my old CX and current s class with airmatic. The later X300s lost a bit of that quality and it's only gotten worse since
  6. Wholeheartedly recommend the Chimaera. For me I'd like to swap my Chim for either a Cerbera or T350. I was a Powers Performance on Friday and some of the stuff they have in... Also on the list is a Monaro, if possible a supercharged one for ultimate shits and giggles. Probably a few years off realistically. And another performance car I absolutely have to tick off is a blob eye Impreza STI. In blue with gold wheels and not prepared to compromise on that πŸ˜‚ More likely in the near future I'd like a Volvo V70 or 530d touring as a (semi) sensible daily. And I feel given I've had an xj40 and x300 an x308
  7. The simple answer to this is anything I seem to buy πŸ˜‚buy high, sell low, that's my motto
  8. Bit of a boring thread, completely forgot to update it πŸ˜‚ Final results are in! Poo count stayed at 2. About 7 hours round trip. 160 miles on the way back. Merc drove great. It's a big old tank but effortless on the motorway. It just won't be rushed to get up to speed
  9. My first collection thread on here, exciting times. Off to collect the roffle win panzer wagon. Easy like Sontag Morgen. Poo count: 2
  10. Just to update my views on this, running an old car daily sucks πŸ˜‚ sure it only takes 30 mins to swap over a thermostat but what's the point if the fucker never seals again and I need to get to work tomorrow
  11. Currently doing 20k a year in an X300 xj6. Not sure if that classifies as "old" but it's a lovely place to do the commute and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy that I'm not in some dull motor like everyone else. That said, now it's coming up to winter again I'm almost certain to swap it for something newer as it's getting a bit baggy now. The hardest part is trying to find something that ticks the reliable, economical and interesting boxes...
  12. Seen this zx a few times and finally got a photo next to it
