Sounds like he may well have himself a bargain then and I hope it serves him well :y Of course it goes without saying if he uses it regularly he'll get to be very friendly with local petrol station staff :D

I think I see where DG is coming from on this,if you're using your car on the road[other than to/from a pre-booked M.o.T.]without such a certificate then at least technically[and most probably legally]your insurance would be invalid.I know the M.o.T. only really means the testable items were passed at the time they were inspected but to all intents and purposes it is taken as being legal for a year-blatantly obvious faults such as bald tyres, worn out brakes,blown bulbs aside of course.Anyway now I know it's run out the problem will be addressed.It just came as a shock that it'd run out as it seems nothing like a year ago that it was last tested.

I'm with Lizzie on this.I used to see it advertised on QVC when Maureen used to watch that channel and it always puzzled me how you could spray something onto a dirty car and wipe it off to achieve a shine without scratching the hell out of the paintwork.As far as I can see the dirt has to go somewhere and that has to be on the cloth or whatever that your rubbing all over the car.

I have been suitably slapped about the head with a wet kipper to learn the error of my ways

Two men have been sentenced to 4yrs and 3 1/2yrs respectively for fraud and failing to report their haul to the receiver of wrecks after looting HMS Hermes which was sunk by U-Boat in the channel in 1914 with the loss of 44 lives.Apparently the artefacts they'd recovered and [some] sold has been valued at 150,000.

Got home last night to find a letter from DVLA saying my direct debit for the V70's tax would not be renewed on 1st July if I didn't get an M.o.T. certificate for it,puzzled by this I looked up its paperwork to find that the M.o.T ran out 3 weeks ago :o It doesn't seem anything like a year ago it was tested,why oh why in this day and age of computerisation can no reminders be sent out for this?

Engines are basically simple[although they can look complex]lumps of iron,gearboxes no worse than other auto boxes.Big ticket items are bodywork-there's a lot of it and they do rust-braking system and Citroenesque suspension.The brake servo was[I think this still holds true of the Shadows]powered from the gearbox making the brakes less effective[needing a harder push for same effect]when in reverse.Parts costs can be reduced if they can be cross referenced with fitment to other cars e.g. many years ago a distributor cap was 70 for a Rolls one where one for a Daimler V8 250[same item]was only 10 it's a matter of knowing which parts from other vehicles fit.I'd have a Rolls/Bentley tomorrow if I had the money to buy one :y

As said microfibre cloths are way to go for the washing/polishing part and yes to applying clear laquer to your paint repairs.Depends how deep the scuffs are as to whether you'll need to flat/prime them before painting.

Answer is simple.Level London entirely and have one ginormous airport there and everyone's a winner :y :D :D

Sightings-and the soundtrack to go with them- like that are awesome aren't they? Way back in the '60s RAF Finningley[now Robin Hood airport]air show always opened with a "scramble" of 4 Vulcans all going off at the same time-boy did the ground shake!

Congratulations on the pass,you deserve it for your perseverance if naught else :y Doesn't sound as though you're quite out of the woods with it yet though :'(

Back in the early '80s I bought an Avenger estate for 15 it had snapped the timing chain put a new chain and tensioner on it and it was a handy little piece of kit from then on until the rust killed it.Further "classics" round here[these are on the road where my lock up is]are a Wolesley 1500,a '30s/'40s Wolesley[both at the same house] and a Triumph Herald coupe.
