brownnova Posted October 7, 2022 Author Share Posted October 7, 2022 Fleet update time! Well, no further update on the 2CV. I’ve had other priorities and this has retaken a back seat, in no small part due to the fact that it’s back in the garage with 2 other cars meaning I have to move things to work on it. Which is frustrating, as we’re really not far off. My plan is to book some time in next weekend to try and finish it off. Then book it a test. The Nova made some progress a few weeks back as seen in my other Nova devoted thread Main progress since last update has been Saab related: After several months off the road the shorter drive belt has solved the issue. Meant taking to to the Saab specialist in Wrexham as a special tool was required. Since then I’ve been using it most of all my cars. Mainly to shake it down before any big usage. But tbh I’d forgotten just how much I love it. And it will be taking the place of main daily for now. That’s today, on my way to conference in Llandudno. Also found an R-Reg friend in Tesco! Not all is perfect in Saab world though, there is a little tin worm… this is just under the boot lid. It’s not structural, but I may need to do something soon. A few little areas underneath are looking tired too. I’d love to have the money to have this restored properly. Keep trying the lottery! Others? 2CV continues to perform occasional use vehicle very well. The Pontiac has developed a misfire, I’ve not driven it since. I suspect the coil. Decisions on whether it’s a long term keeper need to be made. Here’s my favourite pic of it recently: 940 has Been a little out of favour since the return of the Saab. But it is so nice it’s hard to ignore it for long. That said I’ve not washed it since it died randomly in the car wash in the summer, so I should probably do that. MoT soon, then decide again it’s long term future, as I have other things I want to try. It is great at tip runs! TF: It’s fun, but I mainly use it for commuting, which is no way to use It. It needs to go, but no one wants to buy it. I may be forced into Facebook marketplace. Yugo: No change. It’s very much a stalled project now.
