  1. I think everyone has taken to the canal paths for their daily jaunt. There are few yards at the canal with interesting cars. Trying to remember the last time I was along that way. I seemed to spend last year walking up and down the forth and Clyde continuously.
  2. I might be wrong but I think I saw a few of these stored not in Bonnybridge but at a canal side yard in Redding. I might be completely wrong but maybe not all of them are gone.
  3. I would wonder how people get round to modifying cars. There are too many faults to deal with first before buying upgrades!
  4. I wonder if it has had a smack in the boot lid. The plastic number plate panel on the boot looks like a later one.
  5. I double checked the reg numbers there! The wheels were on the car when I got it. I think they were meant to be gold but they were more metallic beige. It came with the original steels and wheeltrims. I haven’t seen another 200SX with wheeltrims since. I forgot to pass on the wheels and trims when I sold it - I think my Dad chucked them in the tip.
  6. I had my 214 SEi. I truly loved that car. I put loads of miles on it. Going to Crail quarter mile racing in it at every opportunity. It was faster than any other 214 or 216 and would keep up with 2.0 stuff that was racing. Winning the forum bike 220 a while ago was a nice reminisce. Along side the 214 I then got a 200SX. It quickly developed a noisy exhaust and knackered brakes. I went to order new brakes from the motor factor but there were two types depending what callipers it had apparently. I phoned my Dad to ask him to pop a wheel off and check. He phoned me five mins later to say the jack was going up through the sill... As I wanted to save for a flat I sold them both and got my 306 about a month before I turned 21. I think I had that nearly three years. Being an auto it was a bit more sedate. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dRSH-0UZLfw
  7. Good work. I’m surprised how crispy the bonnet is under the grill!
  8. I currently drive 13 year old Civic Type R. Based on late sixties cars I think I’d be in an Austin 1300GT.
  9. @catsinthewelder might want the trims for the 220 bike. I fixed the broken one using an inner ring from a Clio wheel trim during my brief tenure but spares might be handy.
  10. Nice purchase. I liked your 218 as well, looked a fun project. This looks a good candidate for a funky paint job - dazzle camouflage?
  11. If you are putting a Volvo light in this you need to go the whole hog now - pop up headlight conversion and some Tundra badges.

    Before the recent change in ownership Driftland had a sub 1.4 micro cup. I fancied it if it ran again but I don’t know if it will with new management. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xdQPO1cLYvI
  13. Wasn’t there a long running thread on retro rides trying to identify what looked like a vertically stretched Metro. Thinking it could have been one of these. Edit: it looks nothing like it. https://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/183830/curious-tall-metro?page=1
  14. Is that phrase a Land Rover thing?!?! I saw the exact vehicle you are describing with a sticker saying that earlier! The sticker made me mentally tell him to FRO.
  15. I vaguely mind someone on retro rides having that a while ago. Edit: found it http://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/98884/re-holden-kingswood-mad-hilda
