  1. I believe I had the oil changed Oct 2020 at the MOT 175,328 miles. I also changed the water pump and rear shock absorbers in 2020.
  2. I am thinking Innocenti spyder
  3. In the late 2000s I used a Mercedes specialist and they would give me a 20 year old C reg 190E Auto loan car. In solid mid green with green checked interior he apologised that a C class was not available. I learnt to love that car and one day they gave me a C class and I asked if the 190 was available, when he established I was not joking he explained others customers did not like it and it was gone. He then said he would have given it to me if he had know I liked it that much.
  4. I wish for 29 previous offences of having an estate car to be taken into account before my current Estate car confession list.

  5. I don't know, but Andyrew says he might be able to find us a couple of empty barrels so we will know and not be supplied one full of nuclear waste!
  6. I have forgotten I have bought a 95 although I don't expect to take delivery until the spring as it has covered storage at the moment.
  7. There is nothing worse than coming out of a B&Q with a trolley full and finding you did not bring your estate car! yes it really did happen. In addition to the Volvo 740 GLE Auto in best all rounder thread we have 5 other estates on the current fleet. Vauxhall Carlton 2.0 Club Citroen ZX TD Avantage Volvo V70 T5 Auto Mercedes 200TE W124 Alfa 156 V6 3 are running, but Carlton blown head gasket, V70 needs camshaft sensor, Volvo 740 needs fuel pump. Edit Oops, what an oversite I forgot I have bought a Saab 95. In my defence There is no plan to collect it until the spring.
  8. Who is in Chelmsford! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234298388744?hash=item368d45b108:g:xUUAAOSwyU5gbI-u
  9. I may have fallen out of a tree and banged my head, I want one of these! An oil drum car from Thailand seen on YouTube, we could build one at the FoD this summer, we have a spare 8HP engine!
  10. Luckily you spotted this first or it could be on my drive!
  11. For me a Volvo 740 2.3i Auto Estate (pre cat) is my favourite all rounder. Why don't you see me driving around in one today? My first drive was 1985 when I worked for a Volvo dealer and while I never had enough rank to have one as a company cars I grabbed one when ever I could and in Oct 1987 I borrowed my boss's 745 GLE Auto and drove it 2,250 miles in a week touring Scotland. In 1991 I moved to a Vauxhall dealer and my contact with Volvo 740s dwindled away. Then in 1999 I needed a stop gap car and selected a gold 740 GLE Auto estate. In 2004 Mrs6C returned from the USA where she had a Volvo 740 and bought a 1990 740GLE Auto. Mrs6C ran that until 2006 when it was replaced by a V70, but that is not the end of it. The 1990 745GLE went to my father-in-law in rural Wales and was driven regularly. Finally the the fuel pump stopped and he has given up driving so it is now marooned in rural Wales. The plan is to fix it and get it back home again.
  12. It looks fine to me. Just this passage gives me nightmares as my Range Rover is now 5 years old and given my past experience of Range Rovers I have all this to come! I hate the rotary gear selector because I have to look at it to select a gear and have always had a fear it won't rise!
  13. I will have a look at it this morning but generally novels especially if they are adapted for TV are full of inaccuracies so I would worry too much.
  14. I believe it is to clear the roads of old clunkers that kill bunny rabbits by just driving by! Don't get me started with the pollution involved with making new battery cars. Or the incomplete path to electric cars when we don't have enough electricity or distributions cables and supplies who are not always friendly to us. Let alone the importance of keeping lower paid workers mobile at an affordable cost. Angry of Bucks!
  15. Same as my Clio and while 1.6 is even smaller!
  16. But what have I done! I have bought a replacement for the Clio, for now I have hidden the new one in a shed and cashed in the tax so I can pretend my Clio days are not numbered! Fiat Seicento Active Year Introduced 1998 Max speed 93mph Max Power 54bhp Cubic capacity CC 1108 Autoshite rating ?
  17. I don't think this highly modified car really ticks all the usual boxes, yes most people increase the performance of there car by changing the engine not reduce it!
  18. I recon I would be good at the snap game! Your Clio has front fog light, does that mean it is not a basic RN? Mine has no electric windows either.
  19. Renault Clio2 1.6i RN AutoYear introduced - 1998Max Speed 109mphMax Power 90bhpCubic Capacity 1598 8vAutoshite rating ???
  20. Until recently I used a very similar looking Facet pump on my carburettor Range Rover. My guess is it will be perfect.
