Re: Capri Spotted!

I've had 3 Stormforce covers on different cars including a Capri and all have been fine. I think the sun does degrade them over time which may cause them to be less waterproof, but not 100% sure about that. Obviously not as good as a garage but if you leave a couple of inches of slack in the straps ...

I had the same Andy, it was great. The thing is though, that was in addition to the other stuff we did, playing out, etc. Not all encompassing, as it is now.
In dry weather we were out for hours!

When called to come in it was always "Another 10 minutes please"? :D

Re: Who Remembers?

Thinking back, I would have been about 10 before I had one of these https://www.voxodyssey.com/binatone-tv-master-mk-iv/

Then the Astro Wars etc came out a little later, but before that other than battery power there were no electrical toys or games that I knew of.

Re: Who Remembers?

Goodness me yes, I am really glad! And even now I'd much rather be enjoying myself caked in mud than staring at a little screen. https://scontent-lht6-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/81961711_10221000383709211_2592173248883982336_n.jpg?_nc_cat=108&_nc_ohc=bRVgl6ZjvjEAX_DSaMD&_nc_ht=scontent-lht6-1.xx&oh=c5...

I watched this a while back simply because it had a 40minute chase in it - I don't remember there even being a plot, just a lot of nice old cars screaming around :lol:
I don't think there would have been many awards for the standard of acting :lol:

All about the :drive:

Some people will go to great lengths to get a picture :)

Re: Haynes Breakfast Club Meets 2020

Police presence this month and from 11.35 you can see a flashing blue light The Police presence isn't a complete surprise, it was pretty much inevitable. Although there are a lot of modern cars at Haynes, personally I feel that there are more than enough classic cars of interest to make a trip once...

Re: Freeze Frame!

Found this online; "Of all the films we've covered in this crossing the line series, Gone In 60 Seconds is by far the cheapest, with a budget of just $150,000 - a miniscule sum of money for a car chase flick, even by 1970s standards. Must have cost more than that to fit out Arkwright’s shop ;) :lol:

Great picture Peter. Was watching the original ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ last night when I spotted this mk1 sneaking an appearance behind the stolen mustang.

Very resonable price and looks like a good useable 2.8, really surprised it hasn't sold yet.

Spring on the way so fingers crossed :)

Try DMB Graphics https://www.dmb.uk.com/

If they don't have them they may well be able to make some if you can supply a picture.
