  1. I think you've missed a trick. You could have the doors on opposing walls, bumper ahead facing the wall, separate the lights and turn them round, centre console in the middle, hood behind the carpet set and with addition of a comfy chair you could turn your spare room into an actual MX5!

    There’s a whole documentary about him on Netflix. He did the MINI, x5, Fiat 500 and some McLarens.
  3. if that 735 is the one I think it is, it’s in bad way. It was owned from nearly new until about 3-4 years ago by a farmer from Turra and it had suffered the usual farm maintenance. Some wannabe Mike Brewer type bought it and had it transported to the local BMW specialist where I saw it. I told the chap who owns the place that I liked the 70s look of the car. He gave me a withering look, reeled off a list of things wrong with it and walked over to it and opened the door... I could smell it from 15 feet away. Wannabe Brewer eventually had it trailered away.
  4. You could be Mike Brewer now. Just get fat, make insulting offers on cars and never, NEVER pay your mechanic.
  5. Apologies, I've just noticed there's a distillery along the road. Don't think its Aberfeldy though,
  6. I reckon it might be a line that doesn't exist anymore. The big chimney says there's some industry, such as a mill, but the open space to the right suggest the place isn't that big. I don't think its anywhere between Aberdeen and Dundee, might be somewhere in Fife.
  7. With that great big chimney in the background?
  8. The dead guy house, the best property bargain. Solidly maintained by a generation that knows how to make things last, but likely last decorated just prior to retirement 20 or 30 years ago.
  9. With similar to UK population that's surprisingly high.
  10. Do you have an idea how many new cars are sold each year in Italy?
  11. I cleaned my egr valve today. It took 3 cans of carb cleaner, two toothbrushes and a shitload of blue torx roll. I also discovered that said carb cleaner eats through vinyl gloves so my hands are manky (ideal as I’m going to give blood tomorrow). The car seems a little more responsive from cold but I’m not sure it’ll make a huge difference as the inlet manifold is also full of shit.
  12. Along similar lines, but sadly lacking photographic evidence, I saw a running Citroen BX in Cuba.
  13. I would have guessed at Ginetta but I don’t think it is.
  14. I can’t offer any real help but I’m curious to know what the car next to the Merkur is?

    Ok, I've just seen her razzing down the beach.

    That Triumph is 3 years old. Look at the sills!
  17. I'm assuming you've seen the plans on your local council website? You can find out whether its 2 or 3 houses and whether they will overlook you. Just put your postcode in the search box halfway down. https://www.hants.gov.uk/landplanningandenvironment
  18. The blue car in the water is an Alfa Romeo Guilia.
  19. Bruce Robinson’s car was actually the Aston Martin (only visible for a moment), the Jag was just an old car they bought. It does look more like a 25 year old car than a 7 or 8 year old car. The dent on the side was done by Paul McGann when he crashed it into a bin.
  20. For starters... https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir/57.1909139,-2.2113748/Pitlochry/@56.946433,-3.5304743,9z/am=t/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!3m4!1m2!1d-3.1451639!2d57.052859!3s0x4885db29482bbfe7:0xda90a5a8272f8217!1m5!1m1!1s0x4886029155e76bb1:0x809611293410407e!2m2!1d-3.729711!2d56.704361!3e0
  21. I believe Kirton’s car has the M88 engine.
  22. A new Range Rover was £2000 back then.
