I love the film Bullitt but all i did was go to San Franciso and take some pictures, I didn't buy a Dodge Charger.
 
 
 
This car is just how it should look but a lot of work to make it look unmolested.

I'll put this here because I've noticed some love for this man's work. Some kind soul has uploaded some good quality versions of a reasonably complete archive of Jonathan Meades' programmes just here: Arranged by series

Not only does he witter on in a very entertaining fashion his programmes invariably contain no shortage of chod. 

 

As an aside, I have a daydream of an alternate reality Top Gear with LJK Setright, Jonathan Meades and Will Self. That would have been good car telly.

So you're gonna have to believe me on this one.

I posted this on Twitter and I said to Tiff I loved this review.

 

He replied. "What we didn't show, was that the back end caught on fire and luckily we had a few fire extinguishers. Otherwise it would have been a million pound bbq."

 

Now he has since deleted the post. But what a fucking car this is.

I do like this channel.  Leon seems like a decent chap. 

And it says a lot for Irish car drivers. Don't do nothing unless it fails the NCT.  deathtrap isn't an exaggeration here 😮😮😮

 

 

A gallon drum of Holy water can cure many an ill, especially dodgy brakes.

This is a bit of a mess but it's all there is after 47 years. About a minute of Consul 3000GT saloon car racing from 1973.

Two versions, the first link is black & white with sound, second vid is same in colour but has no sound.

I haven't found any vids of the Cortina 2000GT race (maybe more than one race), although there are various pics around of the LVX Cortinas.

Reminds me of Grandstand or World Of Sport when I was a wee lad.

There are some vids of the Avon Tour of Britain 73, 74, 75 on Youtube, vid quality not always good but some great stuff there if you like that sort of thing.

Australian F1 driver Vern Shuppan drove a Consul GT on plain steelies in 1973.

A Canadian friend of mine recorded this tour of a scrapyard in Nova Scotia. Definitely some mildly interesting shite to be found there.

 Now this is cool!

That guy does not wear any goggles when welding. 🙄

I do like the way he cuts the metal after tack welding. But there is a minor problem with that method. If you have a double skin. Welding up the second skin can not be done the same way or you will end with a load of metal rattling around the body.
