  1. I had my 4th one and felt shit afterwards for a couple of days. It was the Moderna. Having had Covid in August it wasn’t far off being the same all over again.
  2. I remember the Vauxhall dealer in Edinburgh trying to sell Cadillacs in the late 90s/early 2000s. I don’t think many were sold. I seem to recall 100,000 miles servicing as a selling point but maybe wrong.
  3. Isle of Man - hence the name Peel.
  4. That one could easily have been one of mine. I did buy one new, deliberately remove the engine and make a cardboard bonnet for it and paint the rear plate and lights! I sold off all my matchbox and corgi rockets in 2000 to a dealer at an Ingliston model fair.
  5. My old 320 was the same. I could start the engine, take out the key and lock it, to allow it to defrost on a winters day.
  6. ^ Similarly in the fact of having only one rear fog lamp on the OS. No good for Euro land travelling.
  7. My 1989 240DL estate has 4 on the floor AND a manual choke.
  8. It may “save” the car owner around £40 a year but the garage trade will lose around 50% of their current work. What do the gubberment think these people are going to do instead?
  9. I remember Corgi doing a larger scale of the JPS in the 70s, but don't recall a version in Junior size.
  10. A Honda SS50 4 speed (GFU 107L). Put the 70cc piston/cylinder and head on it. Quickly followed by an XFE 512N reg 4 speed SS50 but standard. First car - a Triumph Herald estate - GTK 547F
  11. Not owned that many estates as there was never the need. I have had several over the past years which amount to the following The Audi was a 2.2 facelift model The E30 was a 316i The ovlov remains with me The X5 was a 3.0 petrol, sold during the "fuel crisis" The X3 remains on fleet.
  12. You learn something new everyday. I never knew of the Grangemouth airport, even though I have been there many many times.
  13. No So long as fuel is available then I will continue to buy what I want. Saint Greta and the likes will not dictate to me what I drive. For all the cities that ban older vehicles - their loss as I won’t visit them. I’ll go bc elsewhere.
  14. Ford Fiasco - (Festa) Ford Grandad Mercedes - stuttgart taxis
  15. On the subject of WD, the most laughable for me were the 325 Touring where MB told the buyer it had been fitted with a new stainless steel exhaust. The other one was the two tone crapi - rattled canned by Ed. Even in the finished shots the wings were as distinctive as black on white. Absolute piles of cack. Very, very few lasted more than a year or two after the programmes.
