hah funnily enough I was thinking about commenting how perhaps I could strap it to the front of my trailer and with a Villers 11E engine make my own Invacar based tiddly truck! LOL :)

yeah I have seen quite a few of those RUM car magazines pop on ebay in the past few months, managed to get a picture of ATW435F thanks to those ebay listings :) but I appreciate the heads up :)

the ones that mention invacars but dont show the pages that mention them,  interest me because im curious what is being shown that i cant see! :)

but I have not bought any especially as I think they are available digitally so if I have a need for a particular copy ill buy one that way so I dont overload myself with paperwork and I would also be directly supporting the RUMCars :)

Surprised you haven't messaged him and asked or is he one of those RUM types that don't acknowledge Inva's as microcars. 

good point, I have sent him a message :) (I hope he does not mind me asking questions even tho I cant really buy it or really have need for it, I have however forwarded it to Stuart tho as His 1968 Harding actually uses Invacar/greeves front forks!)

although I think if he knew where it was from/what happened to the rest of the vehicle then he would know more accurately wether or not its an Invacar or Greeves item

im pretty sure from looking at some pictures that its from an Invacar Mk8 but im not 100% sure

just got a call back from him, turns for some reason as I feared my phone stopped receiving his text messages

dont ya just love technology! *sigh* deleting him as a contact and the message history etc then asking him to send me a test message has got it working again it seems

took the opportunity to discuss lessons with him during the phone call and have got a lesson booked in for Wednesday 2:30-4:30 PM so will be interesting to see how that goes :) 

 

I also got this email from BSM giving some official guidance regarding masks etc which is nice to have https://www.bsm.co.uk/covid-19-pupil-safety-advice

He received your messages...
He probably didn’t wanna restart his life until he had had a haircut. 😂

      Well I've been meaning to sign up here in forever, but kept forgetting. Thanks to someone over on another forum I frequent poking me about it recently the subject was forced back into my very brief attention span for long enough to get me to act on the instruction.

      I figure that my little varied fleet might bring you lot some amusement...

      So...we've got:

      1993 Lada Riva 1.5E Estate (now fuel injected, as I reckon the later cars should have been from the factory...).
      1989 Saab 900i Automatic.
      1987 Skoda 120LX 21st Anniversary Special Edition.
      1985 Sinclair C5.
      2009 Peugeot 107 Verve.

      Now getting the photos together has taken me far longer than I'd expected...so you're gonna get a couple of photos of each car for now, and I'll come back with some more information tomorrow when I've got a bit more time...

      Firstly...The Lada. Before anyone asks - in response to the single question I get asked about this car: No, it is not for sale. Took me 13 years and my father's inheritance to find the thing.


      Yes, it's got the usual rusty wings...Hoping that will be resolved in the next couple of months.

       






      Next, a proper old Saab. One of the very last 8 valve cars apparently, and all the better for it. I've driven two 16v autos and they were horrible - the auto box works sooooo much better with the torque curve of the 8 valve engine. Just wish it had an overdrive for motorway cruising...









      Next up a *real* Skoda...back when they put the engine where it belongs, right out the back. In the best possible colour of course...eye-searingly bright orange.







      Seat covers have been added since that photo was taken as it suffers from the usual rotting seat cloth problem that affects virtually all Estelles.

      Then we have possibly the world's scruffiest Sinclair C5...



      Realised when looking for this that I really need to get some more photos of the thing...I use it often enough after all! We have a dog who's half husky, so this is a really good way of getting him some exercise.

      Finally - again, I really need to take more photos of - we have the little Pug 107.



      Included for the sake of variety even if it's a bit mainstream! First (and probably to be the only) new car I've bought, and has been a cracking little motor and has asked for very little in return for putting up with nearly three years of Oxford-Milton Keynes commuter traffic, before finally escaping that fate when my housemate moved to a new job. Now it doesn't do many miles and is my default car for "when I've managed to break everything else."

      I'll fill in some more details tomorrow - I warn you though that I do tend to ramble...
