  1. You don’t get many opportunities to be more beige than me. This is definitely one of them though. Has someone bought it yet?
  2. Oo, is that Royale a spares car Chris? If so I have CASH 2NITE M8 for the wheel centre caps.
  3. It is. https://youtube.com/GrandThriftAuto
  4. Have you timed it to the right top dead centre, bearing in mind there are two TDCs per 4-stroke cycle? It’s easily done, ask me how I know.
  5. Sorry, just saw this as I’m hardly ever on here any more. I drove basically past the Cylinders’ den the other day but stupidly didn’t have the foresight to put your tubes in the car when I left home. I’ll probably be driving to London at some point in September so we could maybe arrange something. They’re still safe and well! Edit: If/when this happens it should hopefully be straightforward for me to pick up @Coprolalia’s stuff on the way as well, depending on timings etc.
  6. I can’t go now, because I have to self-isolate because I’m not one of Boris Cunting Johnson’s jolly chums. If the corrupt shower of shitcunts decide to play any more games in their pissing war with France that’s already devastating the UK economy then I’ll have to spend two and a half grand being fucking locked up. Don’t get me started.
  7. I haven’t been on here for a while so missed this - the article in Classic.Retro.Modern is very good indeed, as is the rest of the magazine. Here’s the film in case anyone is interested and hasn’t seen it. It was a great day, lovely scenery and some cracking location scouting by Ben. I’ve always liked the looks of the 480 and was mildly concerned about the risks of meeting your heroes, but actually it’s a really likeable car and Ben’s is a particularly fine example. Huge thanks for letting me play with it.
  8. Oh my, that looks superb. You must be hopping with excitement!
  9. Like for the not-a-Rayton-Fissore; Doug DeMouro I can take or leave. Would much rather have watched you talking about yours, tbh.
  10. Loving this. Bassetts is still around and still selling Citroens in Swansea. Very tangentially, my father bought A729VEP new, which wasn’t a Citroen but an Oporto red Austin Maestro 1.3L.
  11. And several grand more out of pocket, too.
  12. It’s amazing how good it is given its tiny size (said the actress etc). The only remotely significant thing it won’t do that bigger ones will is automatically follow a moving object, such as a car driving along. But as I normally film by myself I couldn’t legally do that anyway. That’s greatly outweighed by being less restricted on flying it near public roads, because it’s less than 250g. Also, it’s half the price and I’ve got no job at the moment 😬
  13. Thanks! Interesting point there, I know people like authenticity and ‘relatability’ so I agree that there’s such a thing as too much polish. The cars aren’t overly shiny (especially the Lotus) so the films shouldn’t be either.
  14. As previously reported, the Lotus has been having a mysterious on/off coolant leak, so after a bit of investigation I went for the kill or cure treatment.
  15. Marvellous, that swung it along with Mrs Skizzer’s 997 accounts 😁
