  1. The Minor is just wonderful. Very well bought.
  2. Can anyone explain what that feature is supposed to be that's on Steeds Jag ? I remember seeing it in the 1977 Dinky catalogue & it showed the bad guy somehow bouncing off it like on that box pic' above. Thing is I don't understand how it would work, it's something i've pondered since i was 7 !
  3. Thanks for that i've now just bought it.. Oh god another rabbit hole to go down !😄
  4. Hello What book is that, looks interesting ? Cheers
  5. That looks brilliant. It's how I remember those motors looking in the 1980's when I was a young. I'd have that over a mint one in a heartbeat - just looks like a daily user not some show queen.
  6. There's nothing like a car you truly bond with. They really do become part of your family somehow.
  7. Saw a recent test of cheapest new cars & the thing they were raving about on Picanto was how easy & simple it was to adjust controls even when going round a corner & not have to go through menu's Something has gone very wrong with car design imho. So much is form over function.

    I give you... The Beast. It's Ulez compliant apparently.. how cool is that 😃
  9. Car design has lost its way. Apart from the bloated size that new Mini shown is bloody minging !
  10. I agree with you that things like aircon have made it much easier to demist etc ( that's actually my favourite feature in a car). However i think heating & ventilation has gone backwards in moderns as most now are linked so you can't get cold out of dashboard vents whilst hot to the floor. Just leads to stuffiness.

    Reminds me of the late lamented John Fishwick & Sons based out of Leyland. They lasted over 100 years. Now sadly gone.

    I rather hope the bearded wanker gets a bearded kicking at some point.
