Re: RIP Lemmy

Her body was taken back to America and her family and get this... the night of the funeral.. there were two massive, massive unfor...

Re: Really?

I'm intrigued how you 'clock' a car at 156 when the (very optimistic) speedo only goes up to 140. Maybe it went round twice. A human being in free-fall only reaches 128 mph due to the drag forces. So I don't reckon that particular car would reach 156mph if you pushed it out the back of a C130 Hercu...

Re: Steering coupling rubber bush split ( can I still drive? )

So whilst some of us might be a little surprised at the question he has actually noticed a problem in the feel of the car, looked under the bonnet and asked for an opinion on what has been found so I'm not sure the insults are really necessary. Well said Peter. Be too hard on our younger members an...

Re: Garage Heating

Simply pull the hose off the fuel pump, lie it close to the floor and hey presto! A primed wick ready to light at a moments notice to keep you warm and toasty as you work on your beloved classic.

Re: FWD CAPRI ANYONE?

It wouldn't be for me. After the Capri came to an end I've had a few coupe's, all RWD. I've test driven FWD ones like the Celica & Cougar but they never did it for me. To me, a sports coupe should be RWD like the Toyota GT 86, that's what it's all about. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wron...

Re: That General Lee Capri...

Thanks for the info. I had a mate posting various pictures of other cars done up as General Lees.. no Capris though.. so I thought... I know where I've seen the best one! That was funny that CoC(k).. someone else across the fields had a dixie horn too, but it was one of those cheap ones which miss o...

..on the way back from Harrogate with my old man. Not bad. All top end though, it's weird, needs more more useable grunt then it would be much better. Such a massive power band... from 900 -7500 rpm I think. Too wide really..quite sedate at low revs and when it produces properly good torque you're n...
