Re: Car Shows Return

Try being a trader at shows! with the exception of John at CCI who has always been very fair with trade pitch prices without exception all of the others, Ford Fair, Fast For, NEC etc all charge astronomical pitch fees which is why I no longer trade there.

Re: Motorbikes anyone ?

I have a couple in the back of my workshop, plan was to tinker with them while the Capri stuff is quiet - Not a bloody chance. Almost finished my 1979 Honda CB75O FA but not got near it in the past four years. My 1984 Kawasaki GPZ1000RX is presently covered in a thick coat of dust and cobwebs, I sup...

Re: Minder Capri caught fire

That was a lucky escape but is a straightforward rebuild. I did a MK3 2.0 Sport some years ago that had more damage than that and it wasn't a massive job.

Re: Grrr - still cuts out ....any ideas?

You can lose all of the miles of crappy vacuum pipework that came with the VV carb now you have the Weber. Simply run a single vacuum hose from the distributer to the carb.
Also check the distributer cap and rotor arm, if in doubt replace them.

Andrew. It's dead simple to refit the clip, you don't need to see where it goes, in fact it's easier to do it by feel ( as with a lot of things)

It's a late model, I built one in the same colour for Darren Revill a few years ago, same interior but manual transmission.

Re: Stop the destruction of our passion

If anyone is stupid enough to believe that either government or car dealers are "giving" you way above what your trade in is actually worth then I am frankly gobsmacked.
What these gullible idiots fail to see is that the price has already been hiked on the car that they're being mugged for.
