  1. For a man of your talents I think this is very doable. It seems that with the temperatures you get there aircon is a necessity not a luxury.
  2. Good luck getting across town. I see that the trains are running. Let's hope they can get you to your destination!
  3. 36.6c That is hot! We start complaining when it gets to about 23c-24c. Fan, lots of water and ice creams are an essential in those conditions. Love old cars, but I do love my climate control!
  4. Great to see this has gone to a good home. Once it is properly sorted it will make a cracking motor.
  5. My Austin A40 had an electric pump. It also taught me how important is was to keep the points in said pump clean and adjusted!
  6. It certainly looks like you have your hands full there. Would a fiberglass bonnet be easier to sort out and, as your existing arches are plastic, just glass the arches in? Would take care of the rust.
  7. Ah, the A40. Had a couple in my youth, great little cars. As to going sideways around roundabouts..... They will. Don't ask me how I know. 😁😁
  8. The Ford Puma mild hybred driving school car does 51mpg. The 3.0 X Type Jag does 24mpg around town and 27mpg on a run, The 3.5 V8 Landrover does 15-17mpg ish, on a run, around town, just don't. Put petrol in, use it and when it runs out, put some more in. Don't look at how few miles you've covered. It's embarrassing to see a grown man cry.
  9. Well done ad well swapped. Great cars Jags. I have an XType myself and love it! It comes a time when a car needs a new owner, It seems that time had come for Huggy.
  10. Looks great. A friend of mine is doing 'Rust to Rome' in July. Max budget £500 so has got himself a very damaged Suzuki. Yours looks so much better.
  11. When I see how much minis are going for now I could cry. Sold a clubman estate for £50 25 years ago. [mind you I only paid £50 for it.] £150 to get it through an MoT then ran it for a year. What would it be worth now?
  12. Just seen this. So glad you and yours are safe and you are slowly putting things back together. Make my little fence blown down and guttering ripped off pale in comparison. Take care over there.
  13. Those 800's just look so stylish. I do love Rover products. I have had quite a few over the years. Always seemed a better quality of car than the competition. Well bought.
  14. When I started as a driving instructor we used Rover Metro 114 GTA's. Great little cars, but the interior build quality was somewhat suspect. Fantastic little pocket rocket though. No idea what one would cost now. Some people seem to want far too much money for them.
  15. Looking good. Great to see someone saving one of these. Not many of them around. Your boy seems to love it. be some fantastic memories for the pair of you.
