Good old Buster, giving it 110% :D
I hadn't realised that Winston Bazoomies passed away a few years ago

Andrew.
No I had no idea, but Buster is still alive and kicking!

Re: Who Remembers?

The more I hear the more I'm convinced that the EV is not the way forward! I must agree with you, I hear horror stories every day either on the lack of charging, huge depreciation and general lack of back up once you own one. Hopefully this will improve as they become more common but it will be a c...

Re: Who Remembers?

The same will go for EV owners, how many garages understand those atm? A lot of garages wont even touch them, I have a customer who has one and she was telling me she ended up taking it back to the main dealer to have new brake pads fitted as all the local garages were either ''too busy'' or ''dont...

Re: Who Remembers?

I was told a story recently about a local garage that employs about 3 or 4 mechanics all in the 20s and 30s. A local classic car owner took his late 80's BMW to have a service, investigate a misfire and some work on the brakes as his normal mechanic was off sick and he needed it done before its MOT...

Re: Who Remembers?

Halfords is exceptional for some stuff, such as their spray paints, I've found them to be superb colour matches. But I wouldn't speak to anyone in there if I can help it. Yes anything non mechanical you are probably ok. It's the same with garages, who will we trust to sort older cars in years to co...

Re: Who Remembers?

We have a car accessory shop that has been there over 30 years, I rarely use it but bought some fuel hose just over a year ago. The older guys in these shops are great at knowing what you need! We also have a Halfords that has been here for several years too, I bought a footpump there a couple of ye...

Re: Who Remembers?

That brings back memories. I had one on the bike I rode to school every weekday - and one of those things attached to a spoke that clocked up the miles. I had the car looking speedo attatched to the handlebars :cool: Excellent Mags :) Kids round our way used to improvise with various things in the ...

Re: ULEZ Expansion

If your vehicle was built before 1 January 1984, you can stop paying vehicle tax from 1 April 2024. My car has been tax exempt for 6 days now! :D I haven't got around to registering it as a historic yet though. Andrew. You have to register it within 6 days or forfeit another year!! :lol: Welcome to...

It's an excuse to: 1. Get you out of your cars 2. Build a huge network of cameras to track your every move for reasons we don't know yet. :agree: Knowing this lot there is something deeper going on :headscratch: I didn't realise it's stopped you driving your Capri for a year though, what a bummer. ...

All these :swear: run around London in Range Rover convoys while preaching to us about buying an EV :roll:

Re: Nicest Granada I've ever seen

Completely agree Andy, very fulfilling and enjoyable experience. For me, that continued with CD's (and still does), you'd often get a booklet too, just as good as an album sleeve/liner. Non physical format music may be convenient, but that's another word for dull. :guitar: Up The Irons :agree: Wher...

I have Killers and The Trooper tattoo, both old now and showing their age a little. Saw them in Birmingham 2011 supported by Airbourne :cool: We left early as the Mrs was feeling a bit queer :( Oh, I have 3 Motorhead tattoos too :) Terrific! I was going to say I bet you have a Trooper one. I saw th...

Re: Nicest Granada I've ever seen

Back on subject, I think that was Rob osbornes old one held together with gaffer tape! Was a bit rough when it went to Aylesford last year. Been tidied up a wee bit obviously! Looks quite nice. Rare car indeed but I’d be cautious buying it because you never know how well it’s been patched up! I kno...
