  1. The guy whose 75 I work on from time to time has a mate who owns BU03AHA which was used by Det. Ch. Insp. Barnby in Midsomer Murders for quite some time. The final 75 he had which was a black facelift example like mine was still on the road as well, the last time I checked. The 2003 film by Shane Meadows called Dead Man's Shoes (one of the best films I have ever seen) where the local goons (quite literally) all cruise about in a green and white Citroen 2CV. In the film the gearbox expires after they retreat from a failed assasination attempt at speed but in real life the car is still on the road.
  2. He does them by doubles according to the waggly trailer!
  3. 2 years ago today this landed on my drive. It was right in the middle of lockdown but the seller really wanted it to go to someone who would appreciate it. After a virtual WhatsApp viewing his plumber mate followed him down from Fife ('essential journey') and he dropped it off. He even came back down a week later to drop off some new wheel centre caps, badges and the Brink detachable towbar (which I use for our cycle carrier) We are still in touch and I don't think I've disappointed him!
  4. I'd like to see that! I have the blue one and I agree it's a lovely casting and one of my favourite MBs from that era, along with the VW 1600TL and the Zephyr MK4.
  5. Aww you left a cliff hanger on p6! Finished result looks good though, do you still have it?
  6. Ah it was yourself! Excellent, I'm taking a look at that now.
  7. You need to raise your standards to Aldi Cheese Curls. Bigger and cheesier.
  8. Swapping is NEVER biased in your favour. Just don't.
  9. Much like the original, but for different reasons, I can't imagine a single place in the world other than Russia that would touch one of those. Not even for ironic, 'Autoshite'reasons.
  10. That looks ace, well done to whoever did that. Not a bubble arch nor driving lamp to be seen!
  11. That wee bronze Escort is lovely. I really hope it's not a rally car now! Your tow vehicles are grumpy bastards by the way!
  12. They made the Leyland FG up until the same time which was an even older design. I think all the former BMC light and medium trucks were kept in production due to their popularity with stingy fleet operators and to keep the Bahtgate plant alfoat for a few more years.
  13. I always felt that the original was far too upright and the big wheels were awful. I did have a beige Super GT version with much slimmer wheels and it looked great. Sadly I don't have that any more.
  14. Leather belongs in Rovers and Jaguars. Velour in a Cavalier lets you know you are on your way.
