    Normally you'd say that someone driving an AX all that way was an absolute hero but doing it alongside that Montego makes them look like a fucking casual.

    The fact that a '96 AX is being used as a support car speaks volumes about the state of the vehicle needing to be supported.
    A superb venture!  I hope there will be an in-depth write-up.

    We have made it to just past Bristol on the M5 with no calamities so far. Fuel stations are hit and miss. Still got half a tank after 220 miles so not too worried.
    Had to dial in the carb a bit more as I was giving @sharley17194 CO poisoning. Runs a bit better now though!

    The only 4-door pillarless prototype after it bumped up a kerb.
    Plans for an open-top 4-dr 'Continental' and a 4-door 'Targa T -roof' were shelved until further notice.

    Hi Tommyboy, I'm near Telford and should be free first thing on Friday morning. If you find on Thursday that you'll be needing anything, let me know and I'll see how I can help

    If boatshite was a thing. This is what I imagine it would be about. And the collection threads would be about buying and retrieving old Russian trawlers from Murmansk in winter.

    @sharley17194and I are doing Lands End to John O'Groats next week!
    I've driven this a grand total of 20 miles and I'm about to do 2,500+ miles in a car that's not had an MOT for 11 years 😅

    Marks for timing the hazard flash for every picture.
    Marks away for not cleaning the cum stains off the driver's seat.
    I'll add a cheeky mark for the glossy tyres. I'm glossy tyre dressing slut.

    This XJR looks brilliant. Decent miles, good colour and no rust.

    This fallacy of "I've spent money therefore I should get it back" pisses me off. It costs money to rent a tank to crush a car, so should that be reflected in the value when you sell the crushed car?

    It's got cop tyres, cop suspension, cop shocks but sadly just a stock gearbox.

    horriblemercedes reacted to tommotech in Tyre quality   
    I put a set of Hankook’s on my Audi daily, they’ve worn well and had 3mm on them but unfortunately one of the rears blew out yesterday. It’s the first time I’ve had a tyre fail, particularly in this fashion. I heard a pop from the rear end and a slight shimmy, the ESP corrected things nicely. 
    I check tyres and pressures on a regular basis and was hoping to get another couple of thousand miles out of these, not sure if I’d go Hankook again if I’m honest.

    Looks great! Congratulations. 
     
    Those Blaupunkt head units are great but quite expensive. I would like one but I can't justify it since I already have a Kenwood with the same features that is nice, but not as nice as the Blaupunkt 
     
    Also you write well. Don't worry about that!

    The right tool for the job definitely helps!
    Theres a snapped piece of the Speedo cable jammed inside and the nub at the end is meant to be smooth and round so I think we can definitely say a replacement is needed.

    Rover really was ahead of its time. Apparently that's a 1953 car
