Re: 6x4 front door speakers

Hi Jason,
That's a great find, thanks for posting the details.
Those speakers seem to be just what we've been looking for, and with a terrific saving over the American speakers to boot.

I agree. So many of these cars with low mileage seem, conveniently, to be missing service records/history to comprehensively back up the mileage claims.

Re: Nice eBay 2.8i

I'm sure I have read on a webpage about all of the colour combinations for the 2.8 and the relevant colour stripes that were standard issue on those colours. However, I can't seem to find it anywhere, can anybody provide a link? Better still, can anybody make up a list?

Re: Nice eBay 2.8i

Here's a photo from the Ford Cars brochure of August 1983 showing silver (or grey?) over red stripes on a Caspian blue over strato silver 2.8.

Both cars for sale look superb, by the way!

That interior is incredible Mel. Well done!
It's nowhere as near as stunning as yours, but here's one photo of my interior.

Re: Wanted! S/S exhaust! Possible janspeed!

I would love a stainless exhaust like the CCI one The CCI exhaust is a mild steel system, it is not stainless. I do like the look of the black painted sysyem with chrome tips that the CCI/ Sportex systems have, and they do sound nice. I notice that CCI can supply a twin exhaust system for the pinto...

Re: How Much!!

IMO, it's not good for any car to do that little mileage in 15 years. :agree: It wouldn't have done the car much good. It only takes one car to sell at a high price and that's it, similar cars are then priced out of reach of most enthusiasts!! On the back of this, parts become extortionate too :rol...

Re: How Much!!

I've only just noticed that the dealer even states that the car is "pretty much unusable" and only suitable for a high-end collection. It's only covered 17 miles in 15 years. Thinking about it, yes nearly £100K is silly, but is £70-£75K really that unrealistic for some collectors to pay? R...

Re: How Much!!

I've got to say that I love the RS1600i, but even I have to admit that's crazy!
I suspect it's just a speculative and hugely optimistic price to begin with, just to see if anybody bites.

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

did they really change the oil without replacing the filter :o I noticed that too. Gus seemed more concerned with the oil looking clean in case the prospective buyer checked it. Which is more than Gus and Will did when they bought it......… Which reminds me, when they go to buy a car that's been st...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

They did a Volvo 480ES in last weeks episode, but curious as they didn't mention or put a new MOT on it I checked the reg number K160HAU, and there is no record of the car and not recorded with tax either! All I can assume is it's had a plate change since :? Hi Andy, Your right, there is no record ...

Re: Alternative therapy

For a fleeting moment, I thought Peter was suggesting that he spent the day pottering around the garden. Then I noticed the Capri axle in the wheelbarrow.....
Judging by the red axle cover, I'm guessing that this is off the 2.8?

Somebody else may re-upload it, keep checking YouTube for new uploads. Failing that, it will probably be on More 4 or whatever in a few months.
