Re: What....

Sadly, this will go wrong sometime/somewhere and these events will not be held anymore :( It very nearly did on a few of those clips, especially #1. I sort of understand why young men in their nice cars feel the need to show off in front of a crowd, but these sorts of exits from car shows annoy the...

Re: What....

I just think they're a load of dickheads. Just not my idea of fun and I can't afford to keep buying tyres and don't want to spend hours getting moulton rubber off my paintwork. I know I'm a grumpy old man but each to their own. :cheers: :wave: I'm donning my flameproof suit when I say this but at l...

What....

a fantastic, unbelievable, gifted, talented bunch of :wank:ers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGfLtBj-s30

Each to their own I suppose, and admittedly many of the cars have modern running gear, but it's still not right to me! :?

Re: One for Andy D

Spot the difference competition time...…. :D https://s15.postimg.cc/p3haowcij/image.jpg Why do this to a Sierra? Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to have bought a tent instead? Andrew.

Re: What’s your favourite car show ?

I've been watching a lot of Overhaulin' too. Both Overhaulin and Fantomworks are repeated on Quest, along with the entertaining Classic Car Rescue. Chip Foose is a talented designer and his designs are a nice balance between custom and standard. I don't agree with the pranking though, as it doesn't...

:agree:
But you could throw say £3000 at a full repaint and still have a car cheaper than equivalent condition Capri..... :cheers:

Re: The Ace Cafe 2018

B975GAV looks intriguing (Damn there goes my V8 thing again) :roll:

It appears to have the same rear silencers as A304PAT. Nice looking exhaust and it suits both cars. I have seen a similar style on a Capri before, think it's custom made.....Definitely not Sportex or Janspeed!

Re: What a Waste!

. The Capri in the back of the xr4 pictures I can’t quite make out the number plate but it looks like a 1984 laser me thinks on a B plate . Hi Jason, Thank goodness for zoom lenses!

Re: What a Waste!

People need to be careful of forming opinions as to why vehicles are left on driveways or tucked away in garages. True, many are simply abandoned as people have ideas that they will possibly get restored, possibly they broke down and were just replaced. I have know on several occasions cars to be a...

Re: What a Waste!

Presumably from the wheels and trim on those xr4x4 they are both 2.0 models? It looks like it. According to howmanyleft.co.uk, there are only around 100 of that model still registered, so quite a rare car. Andrew. Those wheels were on the 2.9 1990 onwards too. I was offered a NOS set last year but ...

Re: What a Waste!

Whether you like the cars or not, they don't deserve this treatment :( You have to wonder about the story behind them though. I bet most of these would have been restorable when they were parked. Not now though. I also came across this at another location that might be of interest. Three Sierras (2...

Lovely Sierra, bud...... I'm toying with a Sierra or mk5 Cortina as my daily while the Capri gets built.
