Re: Unregistered 280

I saw the unregistered 280 at cci nationals some years ago. I have photos of it somewhere.
The owner used a trailer to take it there, I remember seeing that it had the TT conversion.

Re: Is a Brooklands worth the premium over a 2.8 Injection Special?

Hi, Are you buying to use the car for your own enjoyment, or with an eye on future resale value? If it's the latter, my thoughts are that the 280 will represent a better long term investment when compared to the regular 2.8 Special. If you are buying with the intention of using the car, why pay a c...

Re: Capri on This Is England '90

I used to own a MK2 capri that was on ashes to ashes some years ago,

Top door moulding

Hi, not sure if I have called it the correct name, (forgive me ) but it's the black moulding that runs along the top of the door by the weather rubber seal, I would like to know how to take the black moulding off, as far as I know it is held on with metal springs of some kind. Thanks in advance :)
