    Thats a shame about the Volvo, I remember seeing it on the Malone Road before you bought it and it was majestic, glad to head that the Rover went to a good home!

    Good to see you back - I seem to remember you picked up a nice old yellow Volvo 240 and a mint Rover 800 back in the day, are they still in the fleet?

    Still, best to know the truth... there does seem to be a fair bit of Sunbeam Alpine to the waistline and fins, so I can see what yer man on Pistonheads was driving at.

    Its doubly impressive given that they (Chinooks, not Volvo 240s) have been flying over my house for years and they always come in a mysterious shade of blue that is in actual fact green....

    I've been talking about this via PM, but it's too good not to share. The story as told to me is that after a Corgi warehouse fire in 1969, lots of stock was sent to a metal recycling plant to be melted down. My contact saved them from the furnace and so has one or two...

    I hate to think what else he has tucked away

    As Lightbulbfun says, it is because they have to stay in contact with the control room where they'll be making the decision whether to continue the chase or not and having what is pretty much an old Nokia to narrate with means that the audio quality often isnt the best...

    Tandragee, you say?
    One previous owner, who was fond of the colour red?

    Forget it, you'll never get the smell of cheese and onion out of the seats.

    You think that W123 is bad, look at what they did to the poor 190...

    Looks like someone's grafted in a set of headlights and surrounds from a mk1 Metro City.

    Watching This Country on the Beeb and there's been some brilliant chod in it including a Volvo 940 and a minty Nissan Bluebird - the latest episode even has an Allegro Vanden Plas in the background. Surely there must be a shiter involved somewhere in the team behind it.

    British Airways buses which came with a trailer for transporting luggage, no idea why BA had a fleet of buses but there you go!
     
    You're right though, it is rare to see buses setup to tow... these are the only ones I could think of.

    Yes, the bolts were greased where they need to be greased, we're not having that palaver again!
     
    I wanted to get some better pictures of the car today and needed to bumble off to town to get some stuff.  Well I say bumble, the Rover isn't very bumbly anymore, it feels like its traded in the brogues and tweed for loafers and a turtleneck.  Managed to forget the front bumper is lower and bumped it on the curb in the parking spot, no harm done happily but something to remember.

     
    I took some other pictures but they didn't come out so well.  One bonus to the new ride height is that I'm not dazzled so badly by other cars headlights in front or behind me, that's nice because I was expecting that side of things to be worse.  When I got home I took some better pictures so this is really just a vanity post.  I love this car, this car is best car.
     

     

     

     

     
    I can now focus on the cosmetic and hopefully I won't get any more big bills.  With the weather improving, paintwork is going to be far easier to rectify and I should be able to have some time to get the interior properly cleaned.  The seats desperately need a shampoo, they're quite disgusting in places.  New number plates are a must, they look a bit scabby, so when I can afford to I'll get some replicas of the original dealer plates run up.  I'd like to get the glass tinted a bit darker and I'm trying to think of a good alternative location for the roof aerial so I can weld up the old location and smooth the roof out better.  An electric aerial in the rear wing might work as might a hidden one on the underside of the boot lid, there's also the consideration of whether or not to future proof by getting things converted to DAB as I gather analogue FM is going to be turned off in the near future.
