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

Investigated one of the many strange noises coming from the 190. It seems it was a heat shield vibrating against the exhaust.
One down Christ knows how many more to go.  ;D

As said - drum it into them that they MUST torque the bolts up with the weight of the car on the front wheels. Otherwise, the bushes will tear apart in no time. Although, that would then be a good excuse to polybush the front of them. Due to the design, polybushes can be tightened with the wheels in the air.

I was advised to leave them alone as VX ones don't tend to wear out. This was about a week after I had renewed them as part of refurbing the wishbones.  ;D
Only fly in the ointment for most people is removal / refitting the rear bushes. I had a press at work I could use, but a local engineering shop could do it for a few quid.

Which goes to show, businesses, no matter what business they are in, will find ways to carry on as normal, despite all the hoo-haa from the doom mongers.  ::)

If you aren't going to tow pikey wagons etc. with it, just ditch the cooler.
