Re: RIP Harry Calton

What is it with the 70s and driving on loose surfaces? Bodie and Doyle and Reagan used to constantly find rocky areas of waste ground to have chases on.

Re: New wheels..

Must take you ages to get around haha Love the wheels Tom, particularly the BFGoodrich tyres and the writing :cool: Those BF Goodriches are the best tyres I've ever had.. had Cooper Cobras on the back for a year or two, in the wet it was just guaranteed oversteer even at modest enthusiasm levels.

Re: New wheels..

Those wheels are just superb Tom. :applaud: I really love the stance/look of your Capri mate really love the bumperless/trim look. Think it really suits the lines of the Capri. Nice one fella :) :) :) Thanks Nick, yeah it handles very well too, can really throw it around and it just complies.

Re: New wheels..

Slotmags, best wheels ever. I'm intrigued by them being 14's mind, are they from a Scimitar? Funny you should say that - about a month ago I was given some 14" dragslots from a Scimitar.... but they're 114 PCD! Just like everyone, I thought that "scimitar wheels fit also fit Fords" but it turns out...

Re: New wheels..

I have been throwing wheels out of the car as I drive for the past few years, so I have a ready cache of them on the routes I regularly use. If I go on holiday, or a trundle to new places, I drive for a few yards, then leave my vehicle unattended and go back and get a spare, then drive a few more ya...

Re: parking again

I was chatting to a fellow passerby this evening in the shop and he summed it up as my thoughts were about to run away, he says "treat people how you want to be treated. Its simple."

Imagine being confused or surprised that somebody wanted to park in a parking space.
