Re: New Car Show

There is a Sierra Cosworth in tonights episode. I watched it and enjoyed it very much. If I had one minor criticism of the show, I would say that the gathering of owners of similar cars to view a car for sale stinks of being made up for the telly. Would all those Mini owners really go to Mathewsons...

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Did anybody see the first episode of Find It, Fix it, Drive It? I don't believe I'm giving too much away if I say that Henry and Sam found a vehicle, fixed it then drove it...... :lol: I quite enjoyed it, but there's nothing new or unique about the show. Basically it's the same programme as Shed and...

I wasn't paying a lot of attention, but I did spot a blue mark 3 shown near the end of the programme. Hopefully it (and others) will be featured in forthcoming episodes.

Re: Andrews stunning 2.8i

Yup, got to agree, stunning example, doesn’t need the sun to look that good either. Fabulous weekend weather too must have been a good turnout. Thanks Rob. :D There was an amazing turnout of all cars. I'll post some photos of the Capris later today. Is that a small dog at the bottom of the picture ...

Hope you had a good day at WSM Andrew :) Looks like a good turnout of Capris, including my old 3.0 Ghia VKB155V. Hi Andy, Having a great day today!

Hi Nick, B112 looks terrific, as always. Like Andy, I'm not surprised to hear that you've got a mirror in the garage. Ready to take to the car shows, eh? :D What paint did you use for the springs? The colour looks like a good match for the original colour springs used by Ford. Andrew. PS. Did you ha...
