    Weird Car got a reaction from Six-cylinder in Column gear shift on manual transmission   
    Bedford midi had an optional CGC, I’m not sure if it lasted right till the end of production or just on the earlier vans though

    Weird Car got a reaction from Split_Pin in Weird Car’s weird cars *now with added bus* FIXED 75 and ALMOST FIXED OH MG   
    So little update, the 75 is all fixed now and behaving itself, the ZT came back from the garage yesterday with the Crank sensor and flywheel replaced and all was well, I was running around the city quite happily, but as soon as I got on the motorway it stalled in the 3rd lane, I managed to coast it into the hard shoulder,
    waited 3 and a half hours for the RAC to show up and as soon as he cranked it the bloody thing started, Mr WC thinks it might be the cam sensor as it’s had basically everything else replaced so that’s going to be the next thing to do, strangely I’ve been driving it around the city all day today and it’s been fine, it just doesn’t like the motorway it seems, I have to admit for a 20 year old car it still looks surprisingly modern and just drives and handles so nicely. 
     

     
    One thing I had to do something about was the headlining, it was sagging so badly and getting in my face so I’ve temporarily bodged it with drawing pins. 
     

    it doesn’t look the best and is quite crooked but I’m planning on getting a new headlining sooner rather than later anyway, I want to try and find a black headliner really

    So the prognosis on the ZT is a demagnetised flywheel, according to the garage, which is rather odd as it had new clutch and flywheel in 2021, goes to show the quality of modern  parts 😒

    Luckily Mr WC has had the week off so he’s been cracking on getting the 75 fixed, it turns out the thermostat housing had exploded, new parts are being collected and fitted today!

    Thank you, it’s my boyfriend’s plate, he’s getting it back soon to put on his 75 as I’m putting my ‘BUS YUM’ plate on the ZT

    it feels great to drive with the 1.8 non turbo in mine, I bet the v8 is a belter, especially in supercharged 400bhp form

    ZTs just look so 'right'. I really wish I had space for one, no real use for it but it's just one of those cars I'd like for the sake of owning one. I do toy with selling the Skoda and finding a CDTi ZT to run around in instead, but the Skoda is tiny and great for what I use it for.

    Still such a good looking car in ZT form, these. A 260 is very much on my 'want' list...
