  1. Nice to see you yesterday Wuvvum, that Dodge of yours is impressive for the fact there's so much hard plastic inside you could easily wash the interior out with a hose pipe if someone chucked up in it! I had the pleasure of Dollywobbler staying over for the evening in readiness for our East Coast Retros meet in the morning, I even ended up mopping some of his car for him. We had around 400 cars at the meet again, it was absolutely manic! I didn't get many photos as I was too busy parking cars or talking but here a couple I did get This was a recent Japanese import, my friend who owns it had one for years and done over 170000 miles in it before selling it at 233000 miles with a duff fuel pump and wants to make a replica of it with this one. And this was for sale for £2750, I particularly liked the 4 ft cobweb across the dash!
  2. If anybody local is looking for something to do on Sunday then we have another one of our car meets on 😊
  3. That is absolutely beautiful! Very well bought sir!
  4. I've been chipping away with jobs on the Golf still, the original interior was all worn and split and quite tatty but replacements are really expensive so imagine my excitement when I spotted a new interior out of a later Clipper model on FB marketplace for £250, the only downside was that it was in Orpington and needed collecting that night, so last Saturday I shot down at 9pm and brought this lot home. To replace this lot It wasn't too bad to swap over, changed all the door cards to match too, the only issue was the later seats have the slider handles the opposite way round so they need swapping round and slightly bodged back on with cable ties which seem to work Definite improvment though. I also painted the alloys whilst I was at it all. I'm now just waiting for the new Bilstein shocks and Eibach springs to arrive so I can throw the shit coilovers off a cliff and I'll be happy!
  5. Yes it's unfortunately on cheap coilovers and its bloody horrid! Really hard and bouncy so it's definitely the next job and the most expensive and the person who fitted the coilovers binned the front strut legs so I need to buy complete units so around £300 for the whole set up
  6. I decided to bite the bullet and order a set of number plates from that 'Retroplates' fella of Instagram on Monday, Tuesday he had already drafted up a set on his computer. And by Thursday they were sat on my door mat. I have to say I was very impressed, yes they are bloody expensive really, more than DMB cost (£60 delivered) but they look so much better than the wanky modern scene tit ones I had before.
  7. The roof on this Beetle had been removed, chopped and then swap front to back?! £5500 for a base model Escort with 38000 miles A Volvo 780! It was stunning too A pair of immaculate Corsas. And a recently restored Belmont SRi This is a odd one, the story is that the car started life as a D reg RS Turbo hatchback but very early in its life its was crashed and everything swapped over to a brand new Estate shell by Ford to make the only RS Turbo Estate and registered as so by the DVLA and put on the private plate.?. This CA was built on a Senator floor with the 3.0 24v engine and Jar rear end with a one piece tailgate, it was amazing, LCD dash as well, apparently it took 2 years to build, mostly during lockdown! And lastly my two cars whilst I was there with the camera!
  8. Actually here's a few photos from the Stonham Barns show yesterday This is a the oldest Marina saloon and is absolutely stunning, Paul the owner did the full restoration on his own collecting parts from the BL show in Peterborough This 505 SRD Turbo apparently lives around the corner from me. This Jag cost £400000 to build, the owner wanted a car with classic style and engine but with all the modern features of to drive it to Switzerland, it has a 6.1 V12 engine and everything was custom built. Love it or hate it you have to appreciate the attention to detail.
  9. We had a little bit of drama at a show yesterday, we had about 70 cars to park in our club area and this beautiful Lancia Fulvia was already parked there. After a short while we turned round to find it down a the ditch behind, complete with the owners 92 year old wife still in the passenger seat! We all rushed over and thankfully she was still OK if a little shaken up, it seems the elderly owner hadn't put the handbreak on and also hadn't put it in gear properly 🤦‍♂️ As a group we all managed to push the front down and support the back enough for the owner to drive it out the ditch, luckily it had a tow bar which took the brunt of a impact although the bumper was squashed and the lower rear quarter a little dented but all in all they got away lightly considering how deep the ditch was!
  10. Just a few from our East Coast Retros meet this evening, good to see you there Dicky and Wuvvum! This Escort 1.1L with immaculate with only 12000 miles, the floor was like new, unfortunately the wheels and headlights were a bit of a let down for me.
  11. A reminder for those local shitters who come to our East Coast Retros meet. 😊
  12. I'm with BI on this, HubNut is a business earning money from video content and merchandise, whilst what happened is a terrible blow and shock for Ian it isn't really worth crowdfunding is it, that just screams of fanboiz trying to get themselves noticed in my opinion.
  13. Easily done Ian, especially if the tyres are getting on a bit or cheap brands, the first sign of rain and you often see cars in the ditch, in fact last Sunday a 80 year old man stacked his 4x4 doing the same thing just as it started to rain at the end of our road where there's a sweeping left bend into the village down a hill and parked it on his roof badly cutting his face so in the grand scheme of things you got of lightly. All the best getting the parts shipped over and don't let it upset you too much.
