  1. Is this any use for parts? Hairy MX5 Sport on autotrader for £500
  2. My friend has just had his late E46 coupe condemned by a localish BMW specialist due to a load of brake repairs required. It has a Boris MoT until October. It is a shame as it looks quite smart in sort of CSL grey and has very clean black leather interior. I thought it might be a good reshell for a drifter. They could punt the interior. He is in the process of contacting a local BMW breaker to see if they want it or WBAC.
  3. It is surprising how rare Corsa Bs have become. I saw a silver post ‘97 lowered on softstars in Bainsford the other day. It was so unusual to see one I looked up the reg to see if it was a sport. It was a 1.4 Breeze.
  4. I have the same trolley jack. The wee light hasn’t worked in years.
  5. Sorry to thread divert. @loserone this popped into my head when you mentioned the above. I noticed it on autotrader the other day. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202002277782326
  6. I got a response from Driftland. It took me a couple of reads. For it to still be £42 for 8-12 people to hire for a couple of hours it would need to be a week day. Are people able/willing to bunk off on say a Friday afternoon for this? ’You can have up to a max of 12 currently due to Covid-19 restrictions, it did used to be 16, however we are geared up for only 12 just now, so that everyone has their own 12m x12m pit area, with 2m and 5m distances between each individual pit.This may change as different phases come into play from the Scottish government.I will send you a run down of our c
  7. I think it is explained in this video. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8gk8lNWp2PI I understand the track changed management at the end of last year though.
  8. 1. @Cheezey 2. Cheezey‘s pal 3. @Tayne 4. @Supernaut 5. @dc2100k 6. @320touring 7. @bigmancaff 8. @Flat4 9. @snagglepuss 10. @dome 11. @cort1977 12. @gm 13. @17-Coffees 14. @captain_70s 15. @paulplom Hopefully I’ve got the rough list of those that have registered interest correct. Is everyone ok with me following up my enquiry regarding a booking around late July or August? I assume a weekend would be best for everyone.
  9. @gm good stuff. I’ll nudge Driftland later to let them know I have a group of people. What are thoughts on a date? End of July, August?
  10. I’ll need to check with Driftland but I think open top cars need a roll bar/cage of some description. That’s what scuppered me doing this before with either of my MX5s. Not sure if it just applies for drift events though.
  11. It would be the Drift track not the oval. The track is bigger than that aerial photograph suggests. I think it would be big enough for a bit of fun. That’s the key thing with this. It’s a bit of fun with a small group of trustworthy people not going mad. We can lay the track out as we please in whatever direction. I’m still enquiring with Driftland on the viability of it all but I’ve heard of groups hiring the track before. I’ve fancied one of Crail’s track days for a while but never got round to it.
  12. 1. Cheezey 2. Cheezey‘s pal 3. Tayne 4. Supernaut 5. dc2100k 6. 320touring 7. bigmancaff 8. Flat4 9. Snagglepuss Driftland is in Lochgelly. I emailed them on Thursday putting out a feeler and got a fairly quick response. I replied but I’m still waiting on their response. If we have more than eight interested I’ll have a chat with them and explain it isn’t going to be anything crazy. There won’t be twelve cars say on track continuously for two hours.
  13. So far then it would provisionally look like: 1. @Cheezey 2. @Cheezey‘s pal 3. @Tayne 4. @Supernaut 5. @dc2100k I’ve asked about helmet hire and stuff. Awaiting a follow up email from Driftland.
  14. @Supernaut that’s kind of what this all about. A chilled out session with low numbers. I think quite a few people fancy a go on track but don’t want tied up with loads of high powered stuff going mad.
  15. I’m just scoping out if there would be any interest in this for later in the year. I’m making enquiries at the moment but it appears that the Driftland circuit can be hired for £168 per hour for up to 8 people. For a couple of hours it would be £42 each. I thought it might be a good opportunity for anyone who fancies a bit of easy going track fun without having to go to a full on track day. Would anyone be up for this?
  16. I’ve tried bits of card and stuff before for masking but it never seems to work. Brown paper parcel tape is good for quickly masking up tyres I’ve found.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. I would wonder how people get round to modifying cars. There are too many faults to deal with first before buying upgrades!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. Good work. I’m surprised how crispy the bonnet is under the grill!
  24. I currently drive 13 year old Civic Type R. Based on late sixties cars I think I’d be in an Austin 1300GT.
