Then spend the balance on uprated front dampers, stiffer springs, Monaro top mounts and bearings - better handling than a new Omega.  8)

A used pair of genuine wishbones refurbed with polybushes etc. would cost around 150 and do a better job, but we all make our own choices.  :)

Chas Hodges from Chas & Dave has died. Not my usual cup of tea but I really liked them. A couple of unpretentious old Cockney geezers who loved to play music and have a good time.

It looks like the penny has finally dropped. She has bent over backwards to compromise and be decent and respectful, while they are pissing all over her from a great height, and laughing while doing it.
The fact it has taken her this long to realise shows she isn't up to the job and should make way for someone who is. Sooner the better.
The fact that Oliver Robbins is still in his job this morning after he led her to were she got to yesterday, demonstrates she still hasn't developed any judgement or grown a backbone.

Ron if you pay me a visit at work over the weekend I have a decent code reader which may be of help.

Lotus Carlton or Chevette HS would tempt me at that budget.

Best to just remember them. I took a TR6 out last week for a few miles, wish I never as I used to love them cars. Memories were much better.

Don't say that ......I still want one. :)

Why ?  ???  I had a drive in one about 10 years ago, which someone had spent a fortune on . It was race spec everything - engine, suspension, brakes etc....
It was a bloody horrendous contraption, and my Omega would leave it for dead on any type of road you can think off.
I suppose its an emotional thing, as I actually want an old Fiat 500.  ;D

But old Triumphs and the like are simple machines which are very suitable for the Sunday morning mechanic to tinker with. Omegas aren't, apart from a limited number of people on this forum.
Omegas were also made early in the motoring age we are in now. The age of cars being disposable consumer goods like washing machines. This is why I believe that only really good, expensive performance cars from the current age will be genuine future classics.
As mentioned above a low mileage, excellent condition Omega (or any other car) will have some kind of collectors value to some people in years to come, but imo they wont be sought after by large numbers of people, and wont ever command "silly money".

And then theres the minefield of finding a place to do it properly. The three I know of are WIM, Tyre smart in Witham and Nigel Langs in Bolton.

Similar story to the four pot version I drove month or so ago. Not a great car in the 70,s but absolutely woeful now.  :y
