Back in the seventies the 'rozzers' were fond of the Triumph 2.5 PI along with the Rover 3500V8 (the same body as the 2000/2200)

Back in my youth I was chased by both. :)

Perhaps I should google 'extremely attractive to women' and see if my image pops up. :)

My 1976 2500S was finished in a fetching shade of jasmine yellow and looked very smart with standard fit 'Stag wheels'.

Being a long stroke OHV unit designed by Brunel  ::) it was not fond of high revs, but had good low speed torque with overdrive fitted on second, third and top.

It was about 6 years old when I first owned it. The tin worm had already eaten through the sills and the floor under the back seat. :-X

PAS as standard which was not common on cars built in 1976. :y

Good job it wasn't as "popular with the ladies" as Tigger's Marina, or you'd have gone through that! ;D


I suppose something exotic and Italian would be needed to surpass the sexual vibes given off by a Marina 1.8TC..........something like a Morris Ital perhaps. ::)

But people will vote for them in your absence.

For rhe life of me I cannot understand why a new party did not emerge . A party for properly leaving,  making British people proud tobe British, a party tolead Britainout of the morass. Not UKIP , not lib dems. Instead it is just aform of limbo land .

JUst when you thought all twists  had been taken, this comes up . Still a long long way to go yet.

No deal, a decent set of negotiaters , a decent set of problem solvers ( like where to source lettuces)  is the way forward.

I'm aware of three new parties that are forming or are formed and like in mainland Europe I expect new parties to rapidly have an effect on the electoral landscape. Both Lab & Cons. will probably split into two parties. The Internet & social media, have changed the political landscape in mainland Europe & I personally expect the same to happen here.

New Parties:

Time Party
CleanBrexit Party
ProsperUK Party


........and following on from Varche's very valid and true comments how will those so called parties do any good in changing Brexit which 52% voted for and should get on 29th March 2019??

Mrs May who has worked bloody hard against 27 other national leaders to get whatever she has got, and is still trying to negotiate more, proving she is no quitter, going now will do no good whatsoever and in fact damage the very Brexit so many want.

FFS this just goes on and bloody on, so let everyone just retreat from their repetitive views and Let it Be, whatever this is now. Just going over the same old ground is doing no good to anyone, and the treasonable 48 who have pushed in the letters are just out for themselves, not the country or us the people.  All they are doing is weakening further the position of our leader for what??!!   >:(

We don't know the 'exact figure' Lizzie.

Merely that it has reached 48.......or more. :-* :-* :-*

I tend to agree that replacing TM will make no difference though. The deal is the deal regardless of PM.

I still have a small spanner on my key ring that fits the mixture adjusting nut on the bottom of SU carbs.

Last needed it on my 1976 Triumph 2500S........along with the trusty colourtune. :y

I could only get it to run smoothly when the engine was running 'rich' which gave 13 MPG. :-\

Still own a Carmine Red 1976 Triumph 2500S which I bought in 1998. Great car, and still rust free (I did a lot of rust preventative measures when I got it). I get about 24mpg on average - it runs sweet as a 'nut'! A bit less whilst towing, but as long as it is running well, the mpg is not worth worrying about! Get plenty of 👍 when out and about from other 'knowledgable' motorists...

Gove says he is backing her 100%.....shes toast.  ;D

A lectern has been set up outside number 10, and her Jag has been driven into position just outside of camera shot. Lets hope that's a good sign.  :)


This little shit does smarmy and untrustworthy better than just about anyone. :-\

Exactly what sort of brexiteer is he?

Is it legal to drive around with those words in huge letters?

Mind you TV is full of much worse . :-[

Not sure about the legality.

Probably legal until the police pull them over. :)

I was watching more interminable procrastination on the News when I spotted a bus drive by with a slogan which read as follows:

'dangle berries' to Brexit


Hadto google in case I was mistaken. I wasnt!  Is it partof a fleet with close to the knuckle slogans? I-bet th forum censor doesnt like it.

Yes the forum censor burst into action. The real word is similar to bullocks


Yes......I've just watched a video of a bright yellow 'B*ollocks to Brexit' bus. :)

Don't care what anyone says about American cars , I love them especially the Camaro & Mustang , had a Jeep Hemi for a short while & that was terrific can't beat a big V8.

The first big American V8 that I owned was made by Corgi, and given to me for Chistmas by my grandmother in 1966.

The car was an Oldsmobile Toronado, which looked great, and came with a 7 litre V8, and FWD. :o :o :o

I'm searching for somewhere to live:

I believe North Korea is welcoming scousers at the moment. The crime rate is too low and needs bringing into line with the west.
