  1. I've seen that Toyota Crown around quite a bit lately, seems to be getting plenty of use!
  2. Nilsson are the Scandi equivalent of Tissier - they make beavertail car haulers as well as this sort of thing. I want one!
  3. I think that's young Mr Hudson's house - I assume you know him and his dad!
  4. That's a rarity! The Transit with modern motorhome body on the back is regularly around Ulverston, it's an interesting one.
  5. I must look on Little Tony's page - they've rebuilt the K Series in the kit car some pals are driving to Benidorm this summer on a cheap car rally.
  6. I had a few weeks of little to no progress, as I've been working through my new to me daily XC90 when I've had a chance. I did manage to separate the cab from the chassis, and decided it was worth getting a local fabricator to sort the rusty rear crossmember and few other bits for me, to speed things up. The portable gantry crane made easy work of this job! I'm weighing up whether to get the chassis galvanised at this stage. It's not without its risks, it could warp the chassis. I'll take advice from the fabricator on that, as I may regret not doing it.
  7. I think we might be seeing this again before too long!
  8. My experience of Sierra owners in NI isn't so much drifting or rallying, but 'diffing', a much more culchie, much less skillful version. Look it up, tragic. 😅 No, me neither.
  9. LMC Volvo delivery service thoroughly recommended too!
  10. Ooh yes I know exactly where that is! Absolutely not something I ever want to own but happy to cast an eye over it for anyone who might be keen. Able to help with shifting it post lockdown too.
  11. I think you did yes! Amazing selection of stuff in that shed, in (to my mind) one of the grimmest places in NI. 😅
  12. My dad had a great wee spin in that around the Maze 3 or 4 years ago. Good to see it's still being cherished!
  13. This is an unlikely one but... Anyone near able to collect a panel for my Volvo C202, approx 2m x 1m from Alphen aan den Rijn near Rotterdam and get it back to the UK please?
  14. I have a few ideas for reducing the scare factor - well as much as I can given my arse will be on top of the front wheelarch and in road use it's RWD... The tyres on it are older than me, made in Romania by 'Danubiana' - I googled this brand and found out that even when new they were dangerous. There was never any chance of them staying on anyway! There are a few tyre options around the right size, including the BF Goodrich A/T which I've used on a couple of old Discos in the last few years, albeit in a smaller size, and they've behaved pretty well. No point going for noisy Mud Terrains or anything - I've never got stuck on ATs with good tread. The other thing to soften the ride somewhat is to look at removing some leaf springs, and fitting some supplementary air springs - it can self-level then and hopefully provide a nicer ride. Handy if the eventual camper plans come off too, as it can level the body up very easily. Some people have suggested PAS helps a lot - so in time I may look at the Corsa electric PAS system, but initially it'll just be a new steering damper and everything properly adjusted.
