Re: Whitstable 2019

Well spotted Dan :) Looks like a Fiesta RS Turbo. That's what I want to know - would love one haha My mate is selling his black one soon. It will probably need some work though, just not sure how much yet. Well definitely let me know! Worst I can do is say no and I have the space for a 'small' car ...

Re: Selling my Capri

Looks like an honest listing and a fair price to start it off with. The send-me-£200-before-you-come-to-collect-the-car bit might put some off though. I certainly wouldn't do that unless I have been to visit the car beforehand. Fair point, I don't know about anyone else who would buy a car (especia...

I think I may have one that looks like this or similar in a box somewhere (no promises) - let me see if I can find it and I'll let you know?

Re: VV Carb to 34 ICH conversion kit

Main reason for the easy swap to 34 ICH is just to get the car running better and get it on the road again. I’ve got a used 32/36 with manifold to go on at some point in the future but I’d more than likely shear the bolts on the block long before I get the original manifold off! Just thinking minim...

Re: VV Carb to 34 ICH conversion kit

Is there a reason you aren't just swapping to a good used 32/36 Weber and 2.0 inlet manifold ? :agree: Would be what I would suggest, 34 ICH isn't the worst but 32/36 would be my suggestion - I think I still have an old manifold for one knocking around in the shed that is going spare should you cho...

Looking awesome!

Funnily enough I was talking to a former owner of this car last weekend, as he lives locally and I have known him around 6 years. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1132479 It was in the recent 50 year magazine many of us bought.

I wondered why there was a circle with a cross through it painted on our house! :headscratch: Stories like this pop up all the time, but I don't really believe them. Otherwise, everybody would paint the "too risky" symbol outside of their own house. Andrew. Just talking to a mate who was in the Pol...

Re: What Car Is This

Oh, right, didn`t know that. I thought he was still maybe playing when they re-united, had no idea he`d quit. I mean without Mr Mercury & Mr Deacon. it`s not really Queen in my eyes. I mean I`d pay just to see Brian May alone, `cos he`s a genius, but he`s not Queen though EDIT: Wow 1997! Incredible...

Re: What Car Is This

No, I know who he is, it was the `ex` bit: isn`t he still? I know Wikipedia isn't the most reliable but apparently he hasn't performed for them since 1997 at which point he retired from music, he even chose to be absent from their hall of fame induction. As recently as 2014 Brian May said that Deac...

I was going to say Celica, but don`t suppose they`ve made them for years? *Ex* Queen bassist?
They stopped making Celica's back in 2006 so doubt that's it - I was gonna guess Auris
