Re: BSC/BTCC

Wont there just be electric saloon cars? Well yes and no. Saloon cars if they exist. The issue you is, what's coming from the inside if you read the inkies is that manufacturers are beginning a process of winding down saloon car production and replacing them with SUV"S, even Ford are said to be dro...

BSC/BTCC

So, the old BSC now BTCC iss up and running again but for how long? Not because of the dreaded coronavirus but because Saloon cars will be no more. Will anybody want to watch electric SUV"s I wonder? With saloon cars from all manufacturers heading for the chop I do wonder what the future holds. May ...

BRITAIN'S MOST BORING CAR

Thought I would start a thread as a bit of fun. Name Britain's most boring car. The rules are it can be from any era and can be specific to a model spec not just a make/model for instance It can be Escort Mk4 or it can be Ford Escort Mk4 1.3 popular. The only exception is it cannot be ANY CAPRI. I w...

Re: Dog Friendly Capri

I assume because it's from the rear it must be Doggy Style!

There is good news about SUV'S

I never thought I would say it but I can see scope for rejoicing in SUV's. It might kill off the VW Golf!!!! Apart from the MK1and MK2 GTI most of them over the last 35 years are shite and well overrated. Even compared to other cars in the same class, away from the GTi they are over priced and over ...

White Goods

Following a conversation I had today I thought I'd share this with you and open it up to the floor. There's no poor old me story but I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth and aspirations of grandeur when growing up. School was a constant destraction from life.. When I left school the choices...

Re: Stop the destruction of our passion

The way scrappage schemes usually work is on a 50/50 basis, the only real loser is the customer. If the car costs £20,000k and you get £6000 for your old Ford Focus then the government stump up 3k and the manufacturer pay the other half, manufacturers sign up to the scheme If a car then is sold the ...

I recently came across this article about overrated fast Fords (The Capri has the dubious honour of appearing twice!) :? https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.motoringresearch.com/car-news/10-overrated-fast-fords/ As the ST170 also makes it onto the list, but would be one of my most underrated, I thou...

Re: Overrated/Underrated fast Fords....

Hmm difficult one really as there are so many factors and when you are Ford fan it is difficult to criticise but here goes. Not in any particular order and got to treat things as equal. Underrated. 1. Ford Puma 1.7., Yes its a Fiesta but look at it, brave in design and handles superbly. Never critic...

Parts supply

Moving on from prices. I have been watching exaggerated American TV resto shows. Scenario. Take apart a American muscle car, pretend it's absolutely knackered, scratch heads "How we going to fix up this 4 banger (4 cylinder) The hoods (bonnet) knackered, let's tare it down (strip the car).

Re: Capri prices

Always interesting isn't it prices. Everything sells on eBay to someone at some time. I have seen a lot of difference between web sites and owners alike for similar cars. I would agree with Martin and would go on to say any car below 5-7k you can put AT least another 20k on that for restoration, so ...
