  1. Just what 2020 needs to round off the year- a weird monolith in Utah! https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/23/helicopter-pilot-finds-strange-monolith-in-remote-part-of-utah
  2. When I first had my 2cv back in 1993, my dad put the plugs in the oven to bake out the moisture before we gapped Them. I was doing 100 miles a day in it then!
  3. NGK? They seem to unscrew the cap in my experience. The old equem never did.
  4. Sometimes I am amazed... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-55028065

  9. Thanks. The aim is to keep this as original as possible. Lots of people modify them, but they’re only original once. It was only an mot advisory. When time and Covid19 allows I’ll get my mechanic to take a look.
  10. Photos from yesterday’s mot video at the Citroen dealer. They’d not seen an x1/9 before. oil leak looks like it’s from the sump plug but how bad do the front suspension control bushes look? Also what are people’s thoughts on original rubber (£4 each) or a polyurethane set for £42? Presumably these are what is needed? https://www.eurosport-uk.net/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_11&products_id=244&zenid=2qikf6sgrcl7vqm2hl8omq6og3
