Re: What did you do today?

I'm waiting until warmer weather before I do any more jobs on my Discovery. In typical LR fashion it isn't broken enough to stop working, it just needs attention. But today I bodged the front bumper back on my ace giffer neighbour's Kia Magentis, again. The silly old sod ripped it off while reversin...

Ghosty, no disrespect but why does your dad have a veto? You're an adult.
I suspect it's because his dad pays for (most of) the repairs, could be wrong though.

Re: EBay Finds

Oh no, please don't make this thread into THAT again...!

If I might make a suggestion, Max: ask your dad for assistance in buying your car. It sounds like he's got the final word anyway.

Re: EBay Finds

One-and-a-half, John....None of your decimals on a Nuffield Riley....Even when they adopted Frog-ness they still spelled it out... Riley-One-Point-Five-badge.jpg It is indeed nice script, and I thank you for that anecdote from the latter days of our once-great Empire, but that doesn't change the fa...

Re: EBay Finds

Oof. Would.

I do like a Riley (especially of the Rachel variety), although I imagine a 1.5 would be fairly leisurely.

'Ey up Des, welcome to the beige-replacement bus service.

Pressure washed out the engine bay of the Discovery of Doom.

Shoveled off the drive afterwards.
A mate of mine is selling a 200 Tdi for spares / repairs, if you're interested. I think he's after £450 for it.

Re: What was your first crash in?

My old 1977 Mark 2 Escort 1.3L. I managed to get through the tiny gap between the oncoming bus & the parked car, the fella that was trying to race me hit my rear offside quarter and the nearside front of the bus, utterly wrecking his Mk 2 Escort. Actually, it turned out to be his bird's. Bet she was...
