Re: Remember all those Skoda Jokes? Who knew!

Those older Skodas were no where near as bad as the bar room experts made them out to be. Yes they weren't up to Escort MK3 or Astra standards but then they were half the price. I shall soon be buying my third Skoda daily having had a Fabia VRS and an Octavia VRS, both of which have been brilliant. ...

Re: Digital Insrument Cluster

Calvin stood down from his role a couple of years ago and I'm no longer treasurer. Due to covid etc I haven't been to a club meet even though tte first one since the end of the lock down was held tonight.

Calvin still is a member of the club.

I'm not a betting man but I am tempted to put a tenner on Italy to win so if we lose it will soften the blow.

I start the bidding at £50,000 tissue.jpg
Whats that in smackaroo's ?
£1 is about NZ$ 2 (1.98 to be precise) so that Ford Escort is about $98000 for you Hamish.

A fucking stupid amount of money in my opinion.

Re: Lada Samara death by sandwich

I had a putty beige Samara 1.1 or 1.2, I can't remember. Paid £20 for it as a non-runner. I worked through it and diagnosed amplifier module was shot so fitted a second hand one off a crashed Cavalier and the Lada sang sweetly. It was still Mot'd for a few months so I put it on Autotrader for £395. ...

Re: Who Remembers?

So true Paul. When I think about the things I had when I was a kid compared to what todays kids get, well it's unbelieveable. My bikes were secondhand cobbled together out of (usually stolen) bits and pieces and my most prized posession aged 11 was a small, made in Hong Kong, transistor radio that I...

Re: Tyrrell's Classic Workshop - Capri Mk I 3000 GT XLR

SBH - good old Buckinghamshire registration!

As regards the program, I do believe that the presenter thought himself to be above a common old Capri and that it was just taking up space in his showroom.

Re: Twin 45s Dhla and dipstick

The tube that the dipstick sits in is only a press fit into the cylinder block. Using some grips at the bottom of the tube you should be able to twist it until it is out of the way.

By the way I love your user name. Have you got big teeth and a red arse? :lol: :lol: :lol:
