  1. Some clips from my youtube channel, if you like old cars please subscribe. Thanks!
  2. Decided it was time to give it it's first wash in about 2 years. Looks better but has some rough bits needing tidied up. RJC_2171 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_2260 - Copy by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_2263 - Copy by srblythe, on Flickr
  3. The tyre was a Yokohama, there was a set fitted on the car when I had it in 2017. When I bought it back a couple of weeks ago it had 3 Yokohama tyres fitted, one one the front and two on the rear. I noticed the front one was cracked between the tread and had a bit of a bulge in it so changed it. I didn't think to check the rear tyres. I replaced the other tyres today and the other Yokohama was also cracked between the tread all the way round so chances are it would have done the same de-laminating if driven on for much longer.
  4. I took the Lada a tour of Perthshire, there seemed to be a small amount of vibration/wobble on the motorway on the way there so I took a slower more scenic route from Kinross up through Creiff, along past Kenmore and up to the dam at Ben Lawers.

Anything above 60mph it violently wobbled which made the whole car vibrate, Initially I thought my wheels were falling off so stopped to check the wheel nuts which were all tight. I set off again and the vibrations continued followed by a rattling noise coming from the rear wheel, I could see bits flying off in my mirror and the rattling noise would stop but it would continue to wobble. A little bit closer to home I left the motorway and had to stop at a junction, when I pulled away, the rear end swung out quite quickly and I thought; I've got a flat tyre!

  5. I made the mistake of prodding the inner sill next to the jacking point which just started to crumble, before I knew it, I was having to weld big patches on the floor and inner and outer sills.
  6. If you want me to drag it along to mine, you're welcome to use the ramp if it helps to get this finished. Sent from my G3121 using Tapatalk
  7. I find it easier just to actually remember which side the flap is on. Sent from my G3121 using Tapatalk
  8. Someone posted this on Facebook, apparently they are in Brechin, I might have a look next time I'm passing. Sent from my G3121 using Tapatalk
  9. Lada Riva 1500 by srblythe, on Flickr DSC_0737 by srblythe, on Flickr This was in 2017 DSC_0015 by srblythe, on Flickr DSC_0014 by srblythe, on Flickr And today, a little bit rustier and a lot dirtier.
  10. DSC_0015 by srblythe, on Flickr Bought my old Riva back, still drives quite well.
  11. I've already owned one of them, I swapped my felicia pickup for the 309 then drove it to Aldershot to swap it for the green 305 saloon. The 309 was in far better condition. Sent from my G3121 using Tapatalk
  12. Not really feeling the Senator so bought something else instead... RJC_1802 by srblythe, on Flickr
