And I agree should have had a proper flight arranged!

I'm sure it's commonplace to entrust something so valuable to a spam can with a single engine and a private pilot without an instrument rating, at night, over the sea.

What could possibly have gone wrong? ::)

Discovered that the sh!troen tailgate let's in (and stores) water and dumps it into the boot upon opening.

Thankfully it only does it when parked facing downhill, meaning I have been able to apply an immediate and cost effective fix.  ;)

That water might come in handy when the electrics in there start to short out as they did on my mate's. ;D

Pretty much the perfect crime in today's society. No one is interested unless the losses hit a threshold where action fraud think about looking at it. And even then... :-X

My guess is that significant evidence will be given to the police about who is behind this. The police will then place this valuable evidence in the 'no further action required file'..... :-\

What? No crime number?

Might be a bit over the price range you were thinking, though  ;D

Bookmarked! :P That site will form the basis of this year's Christmas pressie list. ;D

I'd retire immediately and poke off to Yorkshire. Although I did see an ideal house closer to us .. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/s6p/81196163

Check out the last couple of pictures!  :D

Far canal! I think I need to move a little further north.  :-*

Hang on! We can't go having kit cars where you don't spend 10 minutes at the pump dribbling the last gallon (= half the capacity!) in. You'll be letting the side down. *  ;D ;D ;D

* -  you won't IMHO, because I reckon you need a breather at each side of the tank to cope with every variant of sloping forecourt. :-\

We has an mgzt190+ 2.5 v6. Very hard ride but it stuck like glue.

I always thought the MG variants didn't really have the go to back up the big wheels and spoilers, a bit all mouth and very little trouser...


Exactly my experience. A mate of mine had one. Sounded fantastic. Couldn't pull the skin off a wet rice pudding*. ;D


* -  not strictly true, but if I was going for V8 running costs I'd want a lot more go in return.

Andy, you wouldn't be able to afford one of those old AVOs now - even if you could find one! ::)

Ron.

Yep, back when you could still buy them form RS they were about 700 IIRC. :o

You can pick one up for 20 at a radio rally these days. Don't think I've ever killed one, and I've been through a good few digital multimeters in my time. ;D

The only race that engine would be "proven" in is one to the ocean floor on the end of a suitable length of chain. :D

They didn't mention those lovely front lower trunnions from the Morris Minor either. I had hours of fun with those. ::)

It reminds me of a large Rover, especially looking at the lines of the back end! :D :D ;)

Similar side profile to a Rover 75 although the Rover better looking :y

You know you've hit rock bottom when you find that you prefer a Rover 75.  ;D

Yep, likely the pump is still fubar. Once the internals get worn they will spin happily but struggle to maintain full pressure.

Although the funny part was the notion that we would all be earning the same wages for less hours...

Did they forget to mention the money tree, then? ;D
