Re: Various bits n bobs needed

Cant beat a factory workshop manual. I would bite the bullet and order one off ebay. Not a reprint as the detail in the pics gets a bit lost. First thing I did when I got my Polara. Luckily, I found one that was almost NOS in the states. Was about £60 inc postage...well worth it. The Chiltons ones a...

Re: goodwood speed week live

I must have just watched a racing highlights show or similar as it was all racing. The Spitfire bit sounds like it was good

Yeah, the New Yorker I brought in from Texas is up for sale in Penzance. The guy who has it now looks to have done a nice job on the paint etc and taken it to the next level

Re: 1975 Honda CB360T

I just realised that I'm struggling to forgive you for selling your Sport Fury. You really should have given it to me! That little blast around Santa Pod at the Nats in it a few years ago was ace :D

Re: New toy

Beautiful....but awful to ride compared to a 'sensible' modern bike. My old CB750KZ went well but didnt like stopping and handled like a bucket of sick hanging from a helicopter. Your bike is what my boyhood dreams were made of, and the Z900 etc

Re: TV memorabilia stuff and 70s toys

Judging by the memories on here, we must be the 'oldest average age' club going (and I include myself in that). Dave's shed story takes me back. My grandad was a very talented cabinet maker (he refitted the Royal coach on the Orient Express). We visited him in Weston Super Mare every two years by co...

Re: Tiny B Body Interior

Really nice work there. I used to build kits when I was a lad and I really would like to try again (and do it properly). I always wanted an airbrush and finally got one in about 1978. It ran off the spare wheel of my dads Reliant Regal. We regularly had power cuts in the Winter where I lived and was...

Keep chipping away at it Mark, one day it might (maybe) be as quick as my Polara! :D

Re: Ford Granada,...and it’s got bids on it 😳

That was my initial thought....some bidders have spotted a little bracket made of unobtainium in one of the pics. Only takes a few bits to be worth a hundred quid or so each and suddenly it becomes an attractive buy

Re: 1972 Chrysler New Yorker

It was a fun car to drive. When I imported it, it had all of the original, hard to find trunk lining panels and trunk mat etc...they have obviously gone missing at some point for another car. There were two partly decomposed bodies in there too :D :D

Think the buckets were a popular option in 72 on the 2 dr cars. The Triple White option is rare
