Re: Happy daddy’s day to all

Hi Jason, What a great present! I don't use the Autoglym wash, but I do annually use the clay bar, followed by resin polish and finally a coating of high definition wax. The paintwork feels silky smooth afterwards. I think dark coloured cars will respond especially well to the treatment, so yours sh...

Re: Classics @ Scolton 2018

That looked like a really good show. You seem to have some good events in Wales, pity it's a long way for me to go for the day :( :agree: That 1600 Sport does look great, as does yours with that view behind it :applaud: Thanks Andy. No, there aren't many great shows in Wales that I'm aware of, only...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

I just watched Classic Car Rescue series 2 Fiat 500. I've been watching these, and I will confess that I quite enjoy it. However, it's another restoration show with exaggerated for the TV drama. There is almost always an unforseen setback that results in a comedy confrontation between Bernie and Ma...

Classics @ Scolton 2018

Morning All, At the start of June I drove down to Haverfordwest for the Classics @ Scolton show. It's a great show and definitely the best in the region, in my opinion. I stopped off on the way for a quick photo opportunity. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1743/42673947451_fb3f1ef790_k.jpg Ford Capri...

Re: My Old 280

Perhaps the Dr can give us his opinion :) I'll give you a second opinion....... I think the red 2.8 has limited appeal because of the missing history. A shame as it looks great and has a reasonable asking price. Perhaps the price reduction on the 280 has been dictated by the owner for a quick-ish s...

The drivers of modern Audi, BMW and Mercedes cars don't understand that. They are just brash and arrogant pillocks.

A Huge Knock to my Ego....

While reading Jim's thread about the wiper stalk, I clicked on his photo to enlarge it. Postimage usually has ads with links to salacious looking websites, but the ones on the right have got me fuming..... https://s15.postimg.cc/4xqvq2mvf/Mad.png I thought the point of cookies were to ensure that in...

Re: B100CNH... The journey begins..

Incredibly beautiful! Even in the photos we can see that is a really deep shine to the flawless paintwork. I've said it before, but it's worth repeating…..superb! 8-)

Re: Send in the Clowns

Here’s a picture back in the late 80s with my old Capri laser https://s6.postimg.cc/p4mvf25b5/BE0_D4_FED-_A656-427_E-9_A97-_E7_ED8_F20_DD6_A.jpg Hi Jason, That's a terrific period photo. I quite like the Audi 80, but that sporty number on the left gets my vote every time! :D Andrew.

Send in the Clowns

I've just seen that new Audi advert on the TV. They've used the song "Send in the Clowns", to help suggest that the safety features fitted to the Audi help those drivers avoid all the other errant "clowns" on the road. How wonderfully ironic! :roll: "Send in the clowns...don...

Re: Ford Capri in the Daily Mail Motor Review

Spotted this gem in the 1957 Motor Show Review, it made to chuckle to see how times have changed. A 1600cc engine is, apparently, just too much for the ladies to handle.....
