Re: Laser featured in opening spread

Just to show I listen..... Enjoy delighting that it's not all V6 cars.

Re: As this is Rant and Rave....

If this was a male protester no one would care, or Mark Field would have been praised for averting a potential threat. Women want equality and that's ok, but that means the bad bits too. As Martin said the country is fucked, with no signs of improvement :roll: Couldn't agree more, when John Prescot...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I see the flipping bangers boys are up to their old tricks! I can't see the logic of spending money on new bumpers and other items, and also getting the wheels powder coated, once they'd made the decision not to finish the Beetle and to sell it as a project. I wouldn't have thought that they'd reco...

Re: Darts Farm Classic Car Show, Topsham

Good to see your Laser getting a good airing Nige. Never seen a Zodiac estate, unusual car & in great condition. Like that American woodie too. Estates are getting really popular lately.
Cheers for posting these.

Re: Door Lock: Removal and Reassembly

Nice ‘how to’ Andrew. When I did mine, I removed the barrel but left the key in with all the sliders intact & soaked it in WD40. This takes it to a whole new level. Full marks for your patience :applaud:

Re: Sinclair C5

I have to be honest, the original C5 answered a question that no one had asked. I think his nephew may be in danger of doing the same thing. My daily commute is around a half hour & that takes in dual carriageway & bus route driving, none of which I'd feel safe using one of these as Steve mentioned....

Re: Help! Take a look at the Capri timeline

Although the images can't be changed substantially there's a few points needing adjustment - anything I missed? Just one tiny thing, side repeaters on the Special front wings. Other than that, as the 1975 GTS(JPS) & the 1976 RS2800 look almost identical, you could make a lot of people very happy by...

Re: Capri artwork

The artwork on this is just that Steve, Art. He's a very talented illustrator & has captured not only the subject matter but the dynamic way the cars are presented look like they're about to jump off the page. You can see how much time has gone into the book itself, you may be leaving book writing a...

Focus RS there :? They get everywhere :lol:

I can see Kev's 'Blue Beast' Sierra in the background.
Yes, amazingly, just the one RS. In green. & lots of chrome engine bits ..
Blue beast looks good as did all the XR cars, nice show, not the usual modern Focus/Fiesta fest. :D

Re: 1970's Rocked Capri

Was pleased to get this at a rally/car show today. I've got quite a few of these metal signs, I should stop getting them or I shall need to build another wall. Couldn't resist this one though, just liked it too much - https://i.postimg.cc/7PSy8dZy/1970s-Rocked-Capri.jpg Nice one Paul, I couldn’t ha...

Re: WYE Fords Monmouth Cortina Day

It's good to see a decent turn out of Capris too, which is always a good thing! Andrew. Cheers Andrew, it was good to see a lot of different cars as you tend to see the same ones locally at different shows. Forgot to post this one ; https://i.postimg.cc/pXMZ171Q/38-AA54-E7-8-F18-4-EF6-866-C-8158-E7...
