Re: What did you do today?

I'm off to fit new discs and pads to the Absence. There are wind back pistons on the rear calipers *shudders*

Re: Bullshit of the day

(I'm not sure if this is a piss-take. I looked at the date, and made sure I wasn't reading the Daily Mash.) From Volkswagen: "To compliment its latest electric vehicle, Volkswagen wanted to update its visual identity to one that would offer a more modern and holistic brand experience." https://stat...

Re: EBay Finds

Why did you get rid of your Elan? Obscene profit of course. It may have left Chestnut as a 1500 and re-engined as a 1558 by the factory as most were. It was a complete wreck. There is no excuse for an S1 Elise when the Toyota powered,sweeter handling later model is still inexpensive. British toss -...

Re: EBay Finds

There are quite a few cars that I would like to try "if it wasn't a convertible". Makers hardly ever get around to making a coupe (for me) from the soft top. MG did it, and Mercedes with the SLC.
