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.

Yes, Capri with Pinto will be there next time, Jason. When Ian returns to much more expensive cars! ;-)

I like his videos too. It is good, that Harry brought him to "youtubing". My two most favourite channels: Harry and Ian. :-)

Taking about Harry , that Jag and Lancia he is getting restored will set him back a few pounds , I wonder if he spills the beans on cost , the Lancia garage is just up the road from me , I keep meaning to swing past and have a look one day . :cool:
I bet Ian’s Labour charges are a few pound to have him work on your car

Yup.
I get shitted off with knobs explaining something technical ,like this muppet with the distributor , describing how it works ,sorta . One could be forgiven for thinking thats the 1st time he had ever touched💅 one. He aint the only one either. 🙄

Yeah Jason , but I used to service home appliances so its kinda hard to say I dunno how they work, and anyhow Im the dishwasher in this house, but with the clothes dryer🤯,brain dead , Ive told her untold times, its in the strucshun book,and even written around the knob in question "do not turn timer anticlockwise " ,and this is where the 1st line of this post bites me on the arse again " oh Hamish can fix anything " , so she doesnt give a fuck😆,anyhow she is off waisting her money at the hairdressers so I plan to reduce to recycled wood the writing desk she thinks Im going to restore , but I want to make something like this

I have all the gauges and power meters ,and plumbing fittings , just thought a natural wood backing might work

Just had another thought ......I dont let Di fuel my car coz the tight bitch always puts budget petrol in ....not the 96 it needs, so maybe your Mrs aint as dumb as you think. Women have (so do teens) petrol esp , see Di's car is the 4wd so I take that fishing but even when I spring it on her the car has just enough fuel to get to the petrol station , which is in the opposite direction from the fishing spot .......but Im winning coz she thinks she curbed my new car wheel , fessed up an everything ,much grovelling and rash promises to make amends..... but I did it 1st 😆

Good idea, go there and check Harrys Lancia. Maybe you can get some "behind scenes" info. ;-)

I am curious, how the Jag will look in that green color what Harry chose. Personally I would keep original blue, but that green metalic could be interesting.

I must agree I was not keen on the green and would have kept the Jag blue , I will see if I can get near the workshop where the Lancia is :cool:
