  1. They should do a different fucking job then
  2. I would love to agree but it’s clear that, for reasons best known to themselves, the corporate world generally favour global (or at least continental) brands. It’s why we have Cif not Jif; HSBC not Midland Bank; Aviva not Norwich Union; etc etc...
  3. Turns out Duel is 50 this year. Good excuse to dig out the DVD again this weekend during the inevitable telly blackout... https://www.facebook.com/166254663388558/posts/6012011845479448/?d=n
  4. Yeah same - ages since I’ve been on a Routemaster. The last exciting bus I travelled on in London was during the Tube strike a few years ago - they wheeled out all these classic buses (from god knows where) to lay on extra services, and I managed to get a ride on a 1970s Mk1 MCW Metrobus. It was going in a completely different direction to where I needed to go so I ended up being late for work, but it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up!

A key issue is that age has not been kind to the wood veneer, as can be seen in the image below: A few years back, I removed the door cappings and took them to a specialist to be reconditioned, and they are still looking in great shape. However, I put off the rather more daunting job of removing the dashboard and centre console for the same to be done with those. The time has now come, so... It's all going off to the same compan

  8. No, don’t have a sunroof on mine.
  9. So, it was MOT time for mine today To be honest, this wasn't the kind of nail biting afternoon I've had with many previous cars because in the past few weeks I've thrown a shed-load of cash at the thing. That includes new cam belt etc (obviously not an MOT issue but, on a KV6, an expression of commitment second only to slipping a diamond engagement ring onto its exhaust pipe. While it was having its indulgent spa weekend at my local MG Rover specialist, I also had the rear coil springs replaced - something that amidst all the waftiness I hadn't noticed needed doing - and the exceedi
  10. The no admin fees have definitely swung it for me
  11. Oh well, that’s nice. Was like the Brangelina divorce of the car world when those two fell out!
  12. Not sure where best to share this but spotted this handy list of planned 2021 car shows, which might be of interest to some people: https://www.hagerty.co.uk/articles/events-articles/motoring-events-in-2021-relight-your-fire-with-automotive-goodness-every-weekend/?fbclid=IwAR3-9r229Egw24FXn97ZDDPtFf27jTyglu5ChfFK6IsfARTGDg9jKfzJsxI
