  1. I wonder if I should get an RAC badge for mine...
  2. The key fob has never made the driver's door unlock… until today. I bought a reconditioned lock mechanism from a place down in Exeter.
  3. Took the Scirocco to be tracked up yesterday. This morning I have 2 turns of the steering wheel to the left, but only one & a half to the right as I discovered when driving into next door's hedge.
  4. And did you know, as I didn't until very recently, that a 'shooting brake' is not just an affected name for an estate car, but a very specific reference to a two door estate. Similarly the French version of an estate, the 'break' is a shortened version of 'break de chasse' - hunting break. Like this one here...
  5. A Renault Traffic with two go karts in the back, or possibly a 1957 VW pickup?
  6. It's not an estate, it's a tourer.
  7. It's a T3 - see Wiki. Volkswagen Type 2 (T3) Overview Manufacturer Volkswagen Also called Volkswagen Transporter (Europe), (Australia)[1] Volkswagen Caravelle (Europe), (Australia) [1] Volkswagen T25 (Not technically correct) (United Kingdom)
  8. The fair wife & I painted it together, although 'Smell the Flowers' is still a part of my life to this day.

  10. We saw a train... ...and I went home. Nice to see some old faces & to put faces to some new names.
  11. I no longer own this beauty, but it really needs to be the joker in the pack; Year introduced; 2001 Max speed (mph); 131 Max power (bhp); 165 Cubic capacity (cc); 1998 Autoshite Rating; 20+
  12. I may have mentioned this before, but it is my firm belief that anyone who names their car is an utter twat. Hippy new year to the fucking lot of you.
  13. VW Scirocco GT Year Introduced - 1982 Max Speed - 101mph Max Power - 75bhp Cubic Capacity - 1595cc Production - 504,153
  14. And have it transported to them ASAP, either via your break-down insurance (the brakes make it impossible to drive) or by paying them to recover it. Hippy new year.
  15. Loughborough is definitely just on street, scattered parking. Quorn is a much better bet. I may well pop over & show my face feet.
  16. Where's the link to buy the fucking things?
