Re: Pug 406 escapades

Old cars are only better because as they age, all the common faults have come to light and solutions found for them. Not really the pinnacle was as Warren said was in the 90's. Then cars were reliable and easy to repair. Putting ecu's in in hostile environments is not a good idea. What is the point...

Re: Pug 406 escapades

Yeah the general public do put too much faith in the age of cars. One of my customers who must be the worlds worst car buyer with his luck just got gifted an 05 Polo. It played up the other day and the text message I got from him moaning about it included the line "I can't wait until I can afford so...

Re: 1974 Dolomite Sprint

I have used Ash at Ace automotive in Weston super mare. He did a pretty good job of the roof on my Thunderbird but he wasn't keen on doing the whole car at the time.

Re: How to buy a car in the lockdown. Bentley Turbo R

No I don't ignore anyone, forget to reply maybe but not ignore. Anyway none of you are having it as this one might actually be a long term keeper. Just having a look at what was available yesterday a half decent Crewe built barge is getting harder to find now for some reason. I finally managed to ge...

Re: EBay Finds

I didn't even know these were a thing. https://uploads.carandclassic.co.uk/uploads/cars/panhard/13799805.jpg https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1279611 I nearly bought one of these last year. It was in North East France and just as rotten. Strangly that seller advertised it in English as well. Ma...

Re: Where And When Did You Grow Up And What Sort Of Wob Lived On Your Street?

We lived in a small village so no real exciting stuff. My dad had a Wolsley 16/60 that is the first car I remember before that was and Austin Cambridge. Both of these cars were written off by MGB drivers running out of talent so my dad never did like MGB's. After the Wolsley the old man spent about ...

Re: How to buy a car in the lockdown. Bentley Turbo R

You are right though there are no decent ones for sale at the moment. There is a LWB in Walsall but its last mot was over 10 years ago so probably best left alone.

Re: How to buy a car in the lockdown. Bentley Turbo R

Struggling to find something that doesn’t scream wedding car or van tyre clad shit box across the Internet. What are the non turbo ones like? Sluggards? Less annoying tag line. The non turbo is a nice car but no performance at all. They are just a waftmobile without the turbo. Now I have had a turb...

Re: Wassup?

I always fancied a Vespa but after riding a couple of modern scooters I prefer bigger wheels as they get a bit skittish on the small wheels. The Moby's are pretty simple to set up does it have a keyed flywheel or is it a floating flywheel ? I have only ever dealt with the points versions so don't kn...
