  1. The Yaris really does seem to be the motoring cockroach. I always recommend them to people who have no interest in cars, as they are so difficult to kill and generally seem well put together.
  2. Makes a change from a Dead Head sticker on a Cadillac
  3. I can't remember the car (think it was a 1950s Austin), but I do remember a customer telling my dad that he had the speedometer reading main beam, this being the reason the car was now needing a new bottom end. I was probably about 5 at the time, but it's stuck in my head ever since
  4. Neither of them will work, but have probably stopped something else from working as well and may well randomly cause a fire.
  5. My only memory of the 180 is that a school friend's mother drove one and I can remember travelling in it when going for tea after school. I was much more impressed when I was driven home by his dad in his banana yellow, hand painted, Spitfire 4, with no roof, in the rain.
  6. You'll be fine, as long as the pilot isn't working from home
  7. I have put a link in your wanted, funnily enough the chap who bought my VP has asked the same question on the Vanden Plas Facebook group and the link is for someone who says he has them, including the seal and ring.
  8. Just remembered, this was our new bungalow, not quite finished in 1967/8 the Cortina is from 1964, no affording a new car and a new house for us. The garage was built to accommodate a Transit. I'm the shorter/younger one.
  9. It's a good job I don't have one, as today a colleague and I were discussing the relative merits of electrocution or poisoning and whether you could convincingly fake a lightening strike. This was all theoretical, we are not really planning to do someone in. If so I'd just bore them to death.
  10. Imagine if some poor bloke had to do a new MOT on it. "What does this do?" Boiing, as the rear seat flies out.
  11. My place was built in 1939, but not as a house. It was a mother and child welfare clinic (sorry dads you're on your own) there is off road parking, so in those pre national health service days it is conceivable that the senior doctor may have had a car, I will pick a nice new Rover, although in reality more likely to have been an older Austin or Morris. I did have this parked up there for a while, ten years too new though
  12. The prick, sorry I mean Prince, who is married to the Queen had one. And let's not forget Nubar Gulbenkian, the American billionaire, although he jazzed his up a bit
