Re: Rear Spoiler NOS

Isn't it amazing that NOS stuff is still coming up for sale, it must be at least 20 years since items like this could be ordered from Ford.
I wonder if it had been bought with the intention of using it on a resto project that never happened.

Re: Show us your interiors

I can vouch for Andrews interior being immaculate, caught up with him on Sunday & as my son said, the car looks as good now as when we first saw it 4 years ago. Thanks Rob, that's very nice of you to say. It's a shame that the owner hasn't stood the test of time so well! :lol: I think the last ...

Re: B100CNH... The journey begins..

Hi Des,
Superb! I can see that both you and Steve are going to a lot of trouble to get all the little details spot on. This is going to be one amazing car when it's finished.

Re: "We're gonna need bigger tyres Gus"

I really do like Flippin Bangers Hi Nick, Yes, it's a great programme. It's fortunate that I just happened to be watching a trailer for the show before the run of episodes started, and because of that I was able to give a heads up to the forum members. Lucky really, as before that, most people didn...

Re: JoGroats LE Speed Record

I heard this story being debated on Radio 2 this afternoon. Some opinions offered, and I agree, seemed to think that it's some kind of publicity stunt hoax.

Hi Peter,
As Nick wrote, thanks for sharing your superb photos. I love the 70s American stuff so it's great to see plenty of those at Deal. The selection of Astons is mouth watering too!

Re: Show us your interiors

Hi Andy,
That's gorgeous and it looks to be immaculate inside. It's surprising how much more space you've got inside the Sierra than we've got with our Capris.
Why is SOO costing you considerable pounds? Hopefully nothing serious.
