Re: Fraudsters at it again.

He's only selling 2,200 items at bargain prices on behalf of his brother. What's suspicious about that? Seriously though, Ebay will be quick to remove the items, but there should be some kind of stricter controls in place to stop the listings before they become live. Even if one person is caught out...

Re: Dark or light blue Ford badges?

The top one looks about right to me.

I'm not sure of the year the badge background colour changed to dark blue, but I think it was in the 90s.

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I didn't see this Ladyboy's ( :) ) garage programme, but it sounds as though it's not worth watching.
I did question when I saw the trailer whether it would be a proper car show or simply for entertainment purposes.

Re: Breaking News

The Capri had another brief mention on Tipping Point today. :D It was an incorrect answer supplied by a contestant. The question was something about a Ford car introduced in 1962 that shares it's name with an Italian ski resort. Even if the contestant displayed a shocking lack of knowledge about our...

Funny you should mention that as I popped down to the garage earlier today to book the MOT. 1st week in March. It's good to get the MOT out of the way early in the year.

Hi Danny,
That's terrific news!
Finally, some Capri-shaped V6 power is on your drive! I look forward to seeing you in a nice shiny 3.0S at the CCI Nationals in May.... :lol:

That's a disappointment, but thanks anyway for putting in all the hard work to try and find a solution to one of the most common Capri issues.

Good news! It would appear that our favourite hapless car restoration duo are set to return. Series 2 of "Flipping Bangers" has been filmed and "shouldn't be too long" before it hits our screens. At the moment there are no further details available, but check their Facebook page ...

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

One thing that always amazes me whenever a Minor Traveller is on a resto programme is seeing these guys in little wooden shacks who make the rear wooden frames for them. They are true artisans. Hi Paul, I couldn't agree more. Another benefit of being a man in a shed is that they don't have the over...

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

I just watched the latest episode. They did some great work on the Maserati's paintwork, it's amazing what can be done. What a transformation! I can't understand the work done to the Morris Minor though. Drew got a set of wide steel wheels custom made so that the car appealed to a younger crowd, the...
