  1. I remember when combustion engines first appeared, nothing like the horses we were used to. I had loads of hay just going to waste.
  2. Is the oil catch tray indicative of maybe oil dripping from the engine? That seems to garner the attention of MOT testers on my cars.
  3. Photographed from exactly the right angle to make it look as though the drivers side windscreen is vertical and the nearside sloping.
  4. Is the reg plate on the bonnet for the benefit of copter-cops?
  5. Like good French wine and cheese the XM saloon's styling improves with age.
  6. I am led to believe that the reason Jap cars were not seen much in France before the EU was because rather than being seen to be protectionist the government just insisted that all Jap produce had to be imported through the most unusable harbours.
  7. When the floor is full please use the ashtrays!
  8. I feel for this guy, a lifetime of templates up in smoke. I pray it never happens to me.
  9. A quick note on the postcards: even in the 1970s they were taken on black and white film and then pale prints were made and hand coloured with dye. Because colour film didn't give a bright enough image. That is why you tend to get a lot of cars the same bright red etc. And the sky is always bright blue! The resulting coloured photo was then reshot for litho printing.
  10. The factory original brake lights always were a tad rubbish
  11. There was a pit in the garage of the house I grew up in. We only found out how rotten the boards covering it were when my sister got her first car - an Issetta three wheeler
  12. Get paper map and a compass and draw circles centred on each location to the distance indicated, where they intersect should give you a triangulation.
  13. Aren't chassis considered to be counted as consumables like brake pads etc. on these?
  14. I have also always had good service from these guys, excellent prices on tyres as well.
  15. This theft was brought to you by drug crazed scrotes sponsored by your local bent scrap-metal dealer
  16. Sold for 3 bags which seems bargainous to me.
  17. did you still have the log book and would it have made any difference if it was one of the old buff or green ones and not on the computer system?
  18. The centre of that location circle is just about where I was born
  19. My son had "I brake for cake" on one of his cars which I found amusing and quite likely.
