    Dart was last known in Antigua! VLT 240 was carried by Titan T1131, DT32, a Citaro and now an i10. RM240 became PSK 823 in 1992 and was scrapped by the end of that year. The RMs for RMs sake arguement is still something I don't understand and even having driven them I still don't see the appeal, though I'm quite sure we'd have managed 60 years out of a Dart by copious re-engineering, rebodying and repowering

    It was a way of reusing plates; the Dart was DT32, originally G32 TGW.

    Best use I've seen of a Routemaster so far, plate raping to put on a Dartline. 10/10, would like to drive frequently.
  4. Oi! I resemble that remark! I had a '93 2.0-20v 854GLT manual, a '96 2.5-10v 854S auto, a '96 854 T-5 SE manual (about the lowest spec I've ever seen on an 850 - cloth, keep fit windows, no aircon etc) and a '96 855TDi GLT auto. The 2.5-10v was my favourite.
  5. Love this. Four of my eighteen Volvos have been 850s, genuinely one of Volvo's finest moments. Even brought my son home from hospital in my sadly deceased 850 2.5S auto which was probably one of the best all rounders I ever had.
  6. Dunno what you're on about. Nothing at all to do with me.

    As 83C says, these are Alexander Belfast Q-type bodied B10Ms. We imported probably two thirds of this batch of fifty but we only have a handful now; DAZ 1503 and DAZ 1522 under canabalisation, and DAZ 1515/16/31/33/42/47 in service. The Timeline ones were all Mk3s from memory, ours are 285bhp Mk4s with 5-speed autos so they go quite well for what is effectively a service bus.

    My normal chariot is off for annual test for the next few days so I'm on this for most of the week. Not that I'm complaining...
  9. 711Ds were air braked, 709Ds weren't; no idea why, 811Ds and 814Ds were air too. British Airways ran auto 809Ds, they ran 17.5in wheels but I'm not sure what their setup was.

  11. Evening ladles and jellyspoons, Kames Motorsport Venue had a car show on Saturday; sadly it was nearly 2pm by the time I landed so quite a few had already fugged off but some of the beiger offerings on show may be of interest. There were maybe 150 cars on show, lots of Astons and, bizarrely, a grey and purple 15-plate Insignia but to each their own.
  12. It's a loose approximation of a Volvo C202 Laplander.
  13. Today's Brum may contain scenes of a sensitive nature.
