  1. It's never actually left me stranded anywhere, which is handy. Best £150 I ever spent!
  2. Two years since an update?! Jings. This is still here, I've seen it through three MOTs so far. It still looks like someone drove it through a house. Since the last update I've done absolutely loads with it as various consumable components (brakes, tyres, headgasket etc.) all wore out but so far it still provides reliable daily transport on an arduous 8 minute commute. I'll probably go into more detail in a couple of years.
  3. This is my favourite thread OV EVAR. Outstanding levels of craftsmanship and attention to detail here.
  4. I bet that's quite grunty...
  5. Contrary to popular belief you could have a Model-T in colours other than black. Choices included charcoal, midnight anthracite and very very very dark grey. Ford can therefore be credited with inventing the current Audi colour palette.
  6. Pretty much. Because the two sets of wheels could move independently on their own suspension you also got minimal tyre scrub. I think they were outlawed in the 1968 Construction and Use regulation changes though.

  8. IN - Nowt. OOT - Nowt. So that leaves me with the same two Volvos I had last year. And the year before that in fact. The grey 740 has had a fair bit of fettling this last year, including the headgasket a month or so ago. Continues to perform daily duties on an arduous 3 mile a day commute. 850 has also had a bit of work this year. Currently V0R due to being an ungrateful bastard and me not having time to attend to it's strop.
  9. You can, if careful get the right sized spanner in from the top of the engine to release the aux belt tension but it's tricky and many skint knuckles may ensue before you can get it.
  10. Well done to both of you for persisting with this auld tub in the face of adversity, reality and all the other itys that have got in the way. It's looking fucking ACE.
  11. The folk asking £4-6k on Ebay for a grands worth of 940 have to be terminally optimistic, particularly as reasonably tidy examples can still be had for £500 if you're patient enough. Obviously they should be bought on condition and not mileage as the odometer is usually either broken or senile anyway.
  12. The Picasso isn't actually that miserable a conveyance, it's just a bit soulless. They also rot. 75s not only rot but provide endless niggles to fix if used daily. 600 seems like a good bet though, so I'd buy a Volvo.
  13. Jesus, and I thought my two were giving bother. They'll look ace when done though man, keep up the good work both of you!
  14. I recall a conversation we had some years back about the Futura Classic feeling quite old fashioned to drive.
