Rank: Talbot Matra Rancho (10/12)



  1. If there are Capri's at a show don't think a Maserati is going to get any attention at all!
  2. It was at a small car gathering last night, but ran away before I could give it a good look round.
  3. The format is easy, turn up do as much or little as you please. Work on our projects or your own. Bring non car projects to do here if you want. I normally arrive at 10 am Saturday but arrangements can be made for early or Friday arrivals. Bring your own food and drink although there is tea and coffee making facilities. Free camping, RV, motor caravan, caravan, trailer tent, van, or sleep in your car. Bring a tent even flowery 1980s ones! Remember we don't have insurance for you however you hurt yourself so be careful and look out for others. Pets, children, wifes, parents are all welcome. The only facilities on site are mains water and a Dunny (composting toilet in a wooden shed Australian style) Yes it did end up with walls and a door! PM for the address when you know you are coming.
  4. 2/3 July 2022 FoD Things to do. Motor bike trailer - clean and grease wheel bearing and fit new lighting board Triumph Toledo 4 door – Rub down and paint bonnet with rattle cans. Take the cylinder head off the Carlton 2.0i Club estate to check the damage. Start Carlton 1.8 GLi. Start Bedford CF Get Opel Manta fired up and moving Make a couple of the mopeds run. Work on/clean your own car/stuff Prepare wood for enclosed fire pit if anybody is staying for the evening Drink tea and chat.
  5. Show your car Milton Keynes railway station! Mrs6C is away 2/3 July with a right rough crew in Wakefield! Mrs6C has been collecting Lightbulbfun from the station Saturday late morning and returning him early Sunday evening for FoD, but won't be able to this time. I may be able to but would rather not leave site. Any volunteers?
  6. Don't wet your pants but FoD 2/3 July is On! Friday evening 1st July at 6.30pm there a small car gathering of the Milton Keynes Classic Car Club and I am planning to go. It would be nice if a few others joined me as all are welcome. The meeting is at The Giffard Park, Broadway Avenue, Giffard Park, Milton Keynes, MK14 5QN. It is 13 miles from FoD. It is a low cost pub where you can eat if you wish. There is parking for all cars so don't worry if you think yours doesn't qualify.
  7. Most definitely yes. Some experience of the matter has been gained with my own K series 114.
  8. I have had a couple of my cars used for music videos in the past while I owned them. My 1991 BMW 325i SE was used by "The 1975" for Somebody else. Also my 1994 Audi Convertible was used by "Ed Sheeran" for the Video for Castle On The Hill
  9. That means you will have to leave in June to arrive for the July FoD meeting!
  10. BBC says weekend 2/3 July will be warm and dry. On that basis I am considering opening the FoD that weekend. Any interest?
  11. I wish it was! Of those the only one I have owned is a MK2 Granada. I have driven the Rover, Alfa Six and Peugeot 604. I have never driven a Tagora And am not even sure what the Japanese car is?
  12. I own up I have broken Andyrew's Allegro. The clutch had a variable bite and I thought it might be air in the hydraulics so I bled it. That left it without enough movement to disengage the clutch. Andyrew came over to see what I had done to his car! We tried to take off the master cylinder but could not undo the metal pipe. The metal pipe is a larger diameter to the brake pipe I have so making a new one was not a quick fix. Rather than risk it Andyrew took it all off with the slave and pipes. He has taken it to his workshop to see if he is able to separate the parts, clean and rework the cylinders. Stay tuned for the next episode! * As his first older British car Andyrew has no AF spanners. If you have some lying around doing nothing getting in the way you could always give them to him.*
  13. BiTurbo has now got a new stainless exhaust. It has gone for Service and MOT to a local garage and I hope to get it back by the end of next week.
  14. I don't know if it was because I only bought Cavaliers and Carltons I found a swarm of Astra's gathering outside my house!
