Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Darts are not that bad, only the engine is a bit fiddly, but it is so good it's worth it. I would love to make a Dart with proper rear suspension, a decent gearbox and a rack-and-pinion conversion (which mine had) But I'm getting too old for all that - and as mentioned Darts are now fetching prices...

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

I always sell cars just before they rise in value, notably Daimler SP250 and Porsche 928 GTS. Looking back I should never have sold the Daimler at any price but there you go. So when I sell my GTC you can look forward to them doubling in price overnight :mrgreen: You really want all the servicing t...

Looking for a project SS1

"Yes I've seen it. The wife loved it says I can have it but it's all done nothing for me to fix. Wife's not that keen on the SS1"

Exactly what I was saying about the Sabre. Just a beautiful car!

Looking for a project SS1

Disclaimer, My Mother had a 1300, then a TI then a Sabre Turbo, which I told her I would buy when she sold it (while we were on the test drive). She loved the 1300 but found it gutless. She loved her TI and Sabre. I think the ss1 is ugly, the TT is the ugliest and the Sabre is a wet dream. We did lo...

SST H993WGF

Few weekends work. 2011-12 difference.jpg Int b and a .jpg I suppose the difference is, someone like me has racks full of the right parts. Where as buying all the bits to make good outright would potentially be a costly exercise. Still. That bluebird turbo engine is begging for a big top mount turb...

That is just a lie! Verstappen does not have mirrors! And, there is no blind above the steering wheel to stop him seeing where he is going!

Seriously rich?

I had an SP250 with similar sorts of problems a few years back. We tried everything. In the end my mechanic took the distributor to bits and found the weights all over the place. He set it up properly and then started it, ran worse than ever. We put a new distributor in it (not cheap) but fixed it. ...

Replacement battery cost over £500.

Maybe not your case, but my brother had a problem (in Germany) when his battery went flat and it damaged the ECU. Fortunately still under warranty, and the guy at the garage blamed my brother for jump starting it from another car which is apparently (in Germany) known to do damage?
