Re: Next Year will be the 50th Anything Happening?

I've just noticed that the date for the 50th anniversary bash is on a Sunday. That's a shame as, if I remember correctly, the 45th anniversary gathering was on a Saturday, and was hoping that the same might be true for the 50th. Oh well, it looks like I'll have to book some time off work for the fol...

I think your assessment of the chap is spot on.....in my first post I too referred to him as arrogant.

No, nor me. Although if you believe what you read on the internet, a similar show has been known to use production crew to pose as the buyer and/or seller.....

Re: Salvage Hunters Classic Cars

Sorry Andy, my mistake. I meant to write that the listings don't mention about the buyer appearing on TV.
Perhaps the buyer of the Lotus wasn't screen-worthy enough and they changed their mind about the buying being obliged to appear?

Re: Queen Square January 2018

Hi Rob, And that's the thing, there's plenty of classic shows in the year, but not many meets where a '34 Lagonda & new 911 Turbo are vying for parking space That sums it up nicely! :) glad to see a few Capris out too, the green 3.0s left before I got to see it :doh: I missed the 3.0S too, but a...

Re: Salvage Hunters Classic Cars

The name of the show is not mentioned in the listing, although the timing of the condition that the buyer must appear on camera within four weeks seems to be spot on. It also seems a coincidence that we are talking about a man called Drew Pritchard and the seller on Ebay is dp_classics.

Queen Square January 2018

Good Morning, Well, the new year has barely just begun and the show/ meet season has already started! I was a bit concerned that some people may have lost interest in bringing their cars along, this is because at the December meet there was a large presence of Police and traffic wardens and a lot of...

No wonder you never see Daewoo cars around these days. According to howmanyleft.co.uk, there are just 117 Espero (36 licensed and 275 Nexia (107 licensed) left. At their peak in 1999 there were 16,097 Espero and 31,317 Nexia registered.

Re: Anyone know anything about HID's?

Any ideas how many amps or current or whatever it is they're supposed to be taking from the battery? From what I remember of basic school maths, the current in amps = power / voltage. Therefore the current that a 55W bulb should draw in a 12V system is somewhere around 4.5A. Of course, I may be tot...

Hi,
As said, two very nice cars there.
I like crystal green 2.8s, but I prefer them to be two tone with forest green.
