Spottings from the rootes_arrow1725 18.09.2011

Recommended Posts

Is this the same model of Orion that Futuramic owns? Where is he these days? There are a few guys that seem to have dropped off the radar.....futuramic, extendor, 02shed, briandamaged, who else?......Have we scared you all off? :shock:

A lot of people came across from Retro-Rides - as I did - but didn't stay. I guess it all depends on what interests you most. I'm not so into the modding scene, so I spend more time here. It's very rare that I post on R-R these days.

I've had the odd lurk on R-R, but like you mr welfare am not into the modding motors scene, there seems to be a bit more variety here :D

I was from RR, but I lurked on Autoshite for a few months before registering.Tat fascinates me on an equal level to car modifying, but I like a car to have a certain feel to it. Which is why I'm loading the Charmant up with lots of period Japanese mods.I guess I like my cars to be "endearingly crap".

I could be wrong, but I think it was a UK only-model. Does anybody know if they all had the same colours on the same panels?

How could so many people be so wrong? How many have been resprayed in 1 colour I wonder-after all it must be undesireable/cheaper?

Apparently not just a UK model, and they made about 3200 of them, in four different combinations.

I like the idea that they made 800 cars in each of those four basic colours, then sent them down a separate production line where all the panels got systematically swapped over :lol:

 

Last time somebody posted one, I wondered aloud at what age the cost of a respray in a single shade would have been outweighed by a higher resale value.

That is indeed lovely (a '61, if I'm not mistaken...) ETA: I am. You're quite right that it's a '63.However, I spy some 'inspection lamp shite' in the last picture. I hate those damn things! It's impossible to illuminate what you're working on without dazzling yourself, they get blazing hot and blow light bulbs like it's their job. (Petzl head torch ftw!)
