It can't have been much harder or more expensive to find a Rover V8 than a Pinto for a LONG time now, and they are probably lighter!

A mate of mine built a Tojero with a relatively standard Rover V8. It wasn't breathtakingly fast but it had a lovely V8 burble. I can't understand why you'd want a Cobra with a 4 pot drone instead. :-\ As to the Ford V6.. :-X

just one more question do they fit footwell lights to omegas.? :)
Fortunately not.
Yep, never understood that one. My Dad's Volvo seems to be designed on the basis that checking that your shoe laces are still tied up is more important than seeing where you're going at night. ::)

Might explain a lot about Volvo drivers... :-X

Here's one for you:

It, or something very like it, passed me in Alton the other day. Did a bit of a double take, TBH. :o

I know people have to find things to do with RX8s once the engine grenades, but... Words fail me. ;D

Putting miles on a company milk float, it does shift!

Ernie? ;D
My karaoke party piece.  Surprisingly difficult due to timing. But after 15 jars of St Ella, I'm sure I nail it ::)
You've done it now. We're all going to stop you at no. 14 in future.  ;)

When it fails, can you hear the solenoid in the release mechanism click when you press the brake pedal?

Can you use the manual release under the gear stick gaiter to release it or is it still stuck with that depressed?

Take a ride in a car of that era & you'll realise how much cars have improved but got to admit they do look great.

Indeed. Unless it's made by Lotus whereby it'll handle beautifully and look bloody awful. *

*- unless it's an Elan.

General Car Chat / Re: Cheap Service

You only get what you pay  ::)
so for a  sub 100 service they let their gimp play with your motor for 30 minutes  :o
He`s trained to booger-up & over-tighten the sump plug &  then charge you for a new one  :)

Perhaps, but IMHO you're just as likely to get said gimp in a main stealer.

My Dad had a Volvo company car years ago. It was always serviced at great expense by a main dealer. He sold it on to a car dealer who he knew quite well. A couple of days after purchasing it, and about 2 weeks after a main dealer service, the car dealer was cruising along the M3 when the oil light came on and the view through the rear window was completely obscured.

He got it recovered and discovered the sump plug thread completely stripped and a load of PTFE tape hanging from the hole.

Top up on a day like this? No excuse for that - well, until it started snowing anyway.

I really fancy a TR4. Lovely looking cars. I suspect I'd hate driving it, though, so maybe it should remain a dream?

I'm sure I saw the MOT tester reversing my car out of the MOT bay with just the main beams and the front fogs lit earlier today.. like one or both of the HIDs had failed to strike. ::)

I wasn't going to say anything at the time. :-X

Stop/Start only really helps in congested cities

That's all of them, then, these days!  :) :(
Because of all those stop/start vehicles that clog up all the junctions.
.. and the buses that don't have stop/start and can spew out as much sh1te as they like because they have 52 seats*.

*- 51 of which are empty and the remaining one occupied by a p*ss soaked old nodder on his way to the bookies. ::)
