  1. Anyone else see E86 Z4 coupe in that rear end?
  2. Good for you, you deserve a break. My sister works for Stirling University, she's a bit pissed off with her job but that's mostly to do with the the folk from other universities she deals with as part of a multi-institution research project. She likes her boss and the people in h her department.
  3. I think Carl mk2 May still be holding my winter tyres up.
  4. I read about it on an old page on a Land Rover website, the writer of the website had contacted Rotodama for more information and apparently a drawn out house build project (with truck coming in handy) had delayed things. You can probably add covid to that now. It appeals to the irrational part of me that likes old Land Rovers and there's plenty of irrational people out there who like old Land Rovers and buy all sorts of shit. I doubt the Rotodama people will end up as rich as Elon Musk but likewise I don't think they'll end up like Preston Tucker.
  5. Rotodama. A blt on kit to turn a rusty old Land Rover Discovery into a Forward Control pickup. http://www.rotodama.co.uk
  6. If you’re looking for Bespoke Bentleys from Brunei then you can’t pass up the Dominator. https://www.carscoops.com/2018/05/bentley-dominator-meet-rolls-royce-cullinans-long-lost-daddy/
  7. A few years back (2013 I think) LaquerPeel posted the photo above and simply described the location as "Aberdeenshire", I asked whereabouts but he couldn't/wouldn't tell me. I had a rake around the flat bits of Aberdeenshire on google street view but didn't find it. About six months later I drove past it but didn't stop as it was chucking it down. The google street view image dates from October 2008 and the truck was in relatively better condition, there's no hole on the scuttle under the driver's windscreen. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@56.8879392,-2.4193326,3a,60
  8. I wouldn't quite say "Highlands", its 5 miles south of @Saabnut. Some of it might still be there, that photo is about 10 years old.
  9. Have you found a car to buy with that money?
  10. They’re not just for snow, they work better when the temperature is below 8 degrees.
  11. Are they actual winter tyres (three peak snowflake symbol) or are you just buying off road tyres that won’t help you?
  12. Its such bullshit. Imagine how many hundreds of millions have been wiped off the value of the European classic car market because every idiot car dealer thinks they have to put the history through the shredder.
  13. Would you have kept it long enough to get it to a million?
  14. Anecdotally, I remember people complaining about the Diy types not being able to fix air suspension. I remember hearing people bitch about efi and laughing at them 25 years ago. I’ve read stuff from 1970 in which people bitch about that new fancy Land Rover and how it wouldn’t catch on. The Range Rover Classic lasted 26 years. I reckon there has been people bitching about newer cars for about 120 years or so.
  15. It’ll be all those nuts and bolts you kept dropping on the undertray.
  16. How have we got 10 pages in and nobody has mentioned the Maestro Clubman Diesel?
  17. Yet there’s at least three of them on here.
  18. I don’t have a huge amount to add to this. I have a similar driveway photo to the others, and can confirm it sounds glorious. Perhaps a video is in order? I’ve never seen it move and am quite glad it did as I was apparently captain sensible on this one
  19. Tarmac? On a frozen lake? Would it not have been easier to just use a road?
  20. How many left indicates that there are two diesel fluences registered in the UK. The other 49 cars are electric. Not sure there’s been anything else from a major manufacturer that’s flopped that badly in the UK.
