Just be careful when removing the old bearing not to grind a groove in the half shaft with the angle grinder. ...

I don't think I've ever changed any of them but happy to do so if it's just a case of taking the old ones out, slapping them a shitload if grease and putting the new ones in? While it is possible to change rear wheel bearings yourself without a pres...

I can categorically deny ever having owned an estate. I've previously had saloons and hatchbacks, but never an estate! :D

I love the way you've redacted the rear number plate for privacy reasons, but not the front one....

Re: 3.0S JANSPEED TURBO

Hi Mark,
Your car looks amazing!
I much prefer your car to the only other Janspeed 3.0 I've ever seen (you probably know the one).

Re: Not a Capri but very cool....

It's a great feeling when you unexpectedly see old and interesting cars parked at the side of the road. 8-)

However, the rat look on this Beetle looks way too contrived.

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I've just seen another car show advertised on the TV. It looks like the usual format of finding, buying, restoring and selling. The cars featured in the trailer looked quite interesting though.
Outback Car Hunters tonight at 9 on DMax.

Re: Ultra rare models

It's only got 2 doors? Yep! I believe that a two door Orion was built and sold in Brazil. It was called Verona, but it didn't look like an Orion as such. Is it a wide bodied GARTRAC RWD version? Oh and it's using the 3 door Escort Tub. A comprehensive answer, well done! Built by Meeke Motorsport in...
