What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

A DeLorean at dusk. In the car park at a Divine Comedy gig at Inchyra near Perth last night.

Stirling and District Classic Car Show 2019

Looks like it's on the road now. Yes Terry, I did find a photo of it a few years back - an online Miura register, if I remember correctly. It was converted to the later, more desirable SV guise. I actually got to know the owner in the eighties. A real Lamborghini nut, but one without the resources ...

Stirling and District Classic Car Show 2019

Looks like a great day. I’d have liked to have come along to this show but timing wasn’t good. Is the club planning on attending any other Scottish shows this year? As an aside, I used to visit Bridge of Allan fairly regularly in the late seventies/early eighties when my grandad lived there. And aro...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Easy seeing there’s a Bentley Driver’s Club event up North somewhere this weekend. Saw about 5 beauties this morning on the Kingsway in Dundee. Only managed to photo two.

pop-up headlights NOW INCLUDING HIDDEN HEADLIGHTS

Your guess is as good as mine as to what these headlights do. But it's a rare beast - and one I remember seeing at the Glasgow motor show at the Kelvin Hall about 40 years ago. argyll-car.jpg https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/47PgZXqnbJN0HCyssW49p4v/the-argyll-turbo-a-classic-supercar-from-t...

The popular subject of non starting Ti's

Was just thinking, does anyone else think that the subject of Ti starting deserves it's own area/topic/sticky/something within the forum? It has become a very popular topic of late, and a centralised store of information might be useful for the poor souls who will invariably go through the same pain...

Ti starting

maybe silly question, but does the throttle butterfly close properly? Note, at the throttle there's an idle speed control pot that provides a gradual drop in (lower) revs when you take your foot off the throttle. Check it's functioning OK. And I there's a small screw to adjust when the pot is activ...

More Ti starting woes

MOT passed today! Straight through. No advisories. Happy chap! :D Turns out the mechanic trained at our local (now closed) Reliant garage (where I used to take my old 5A), so had plenty of experience with fibreglass cars, though mainly 3 wheelers, I think. (The garage I used for MOT is Esplanade Car...

More Ti starting woes

Hadn’t touched the car for a week, not since I drained the tank then refilled with good fuel (and it still didn’t start.) Today it started on first attempt (which is great) but I don’t know what changed (which is not so good.) I’ll just keep trying it the next few days and see If it continues to sta...
