  1. I'm just jealous full stop. Excellent work and such rapid progress!
  2. Ha! I would never say anything bad about Dr @Kiltox’s videos or even his shirts — I merely pointed out that I’d mistaken his actual cat’s actual arse for a BMW iX, which could happen to anybody.
  3. Just been catching up on this - hats off, lots of cracking work going on here. Great stuff.
  4. Just seen your post about Emma. So sorry to hear this Daniel - I only met her that once when we bought the Sierra, but she was completely charming and obviously a top mate for going along with our mad escapade. Hope you’re doing ok man.
  5. It was great to catch up with @Six-cylinder, @quicksilver, @Slowsilver and @Zelandeth - and there were some cracking cars. I was also beyond excited to meet Harris Mann. I’m a big fan and he’s a lovely bloke, we had a really good chat. Absolute privilege.
  6. I have one (which currently lives with @RobT) but it’s not for sale. As seen here at FOTU. Do you ever sell any of the parts or do you just collect them? In fact, are you the bloke we met and chatted to?
  7. Same. There was a whole load of people I ‘know’ from here and/or Twitter - including yourself - who I either didn’t see or walked straight past because we don’t know what each other looks like. What a world it is. Nice cars though.
  8. Woah, hang on, is that your Laurel @Spottedlaurel? I knew I recognised it but wasn’t sure where from - I’d have loved to have said hello but you were elsewhere at the time, and I suppose it would have been a weird “do we know each other?” conversation. Gorgeous car. Those seats…mmm.
  9. Can confirm that the Rover looks, smells and indeed tastes DELICIOUS. Great to meet you and Mrs RoadworkUK in person!
  10. You don’t get many opportunities to be more beige than me. This is definitely one of them though. Has someone bought it yet?
  11. Oo, is that Royale a spares car Chris? If so I have CASH 2NITE M8 for the wheel centre caps.
  12. It is. https://youtube.com/GrandThriftAuto
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Oh my, that looks superb. You must be hopping with excitement!
  18. Like for the not-a-Rayton-Fissore; Doug DeMouro I can take or leave. Would much rather have watched you talking about yours, tbh.
  19. 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.
  20. And several grand more out of pocket, too.
  21. 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 😬
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
