Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Watched a re-run of Bullitt on Friday night, channel ITV4. Still one of the best car chases in my opinion, perhaps just beaten by Ronin. Couldn’t resist recording it, saw the actual film car at Goodwood last year. It’s still got loads of presence in its unrestored state. Looking forward to watching...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Bring back the banger flipping chuckle brothers ;) New series coming in April. :D Andrew. Excellent, looking forward to the laugh :cheers: I didn't see this Ladyboy's ( :) ) garage programme, but it sounds as though it's not worth watching. Andrew. Unfortunately, you’re right :doh: . Roll on April :D

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

There’s a new classic car flipping program filmed especially for Dave channel starting on 13th Feb at 8pm. Called Lazy Boy Garage, may be worth a look. Did anyone else watch the 2 x 30 minute episodes last night? This is definately a case where 30 minutes is no where near enough time for each car g...

Re: Car Insurance Renewal time....

I dropped the breakdown and legal cover this year which brought the premium down to £ 140 with Lancaster. 5k miles. Not sure if thats good or bad. Mines £78 with admiral but that’s for 2k miles so doesn’t sound too bad. Just got to tax now roll on March the 1st as I don’t think I can wait any longe...

My daughter is 20, and I have very little in common with her really :headscratch: She isn't really into old Fords :) I know what you mean. I offered to pic mine up in it from school last summer, won’t be asking that question again :lol: Edit, She just text me (from her salon chair) to ask if I want...

Havnt had time to read it yet, had to take my daughter to the hairdresser as a one off today so threw it in the car to read while waiting. As we got out she was mortified that I was thinking of reading it in while waiting in the shop. Apparently, using WiFi on your phone is ok tho, so here I am. It’...

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

Amazing how the paintwork was improved by removing a layer of paint and polishing etc. I agree. I am amazed at what can be achieved with the polishing. The paintwork afterwards looked incredible. Andrew. My eldest’s previous black car had loads of swirls & a nasty stone chip. Had the chip touch...

I think we should do something like that, it would be great to park together as a club.
Also, it's always a pleasure to drive in a Capri convoy. :D :D

Andrew.

Sounds like a great idea. Count me in please :D

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

I did learn that 82 model 2.0s had lazer striped Recaro's with fishnets which was a new one on me, I thought most of the post - Carla trimmed ones were just sports seats like my 1984 S has. Checked a 1982 brochure and it was right though but it seems it was 1982 year models only. They weren't even ...

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

Thought the Capri looked great, liked the fact that Drew wanted it to look original, with the top spec Recaro’s etc. Although he threw a childish tantrum (along with that headrest). The new owner looked well pleased. Would have liked to have seen a lot more of the build mind. Would have gone for a r...
