  1. Just think Mark - you could be as old as SuperDave !!!
  2. The stuff about the bolts on the turbo is complete and utter garbage. The owner is clearly a cretin.
  3. Never look at the buying price you paid when it comes to thinking about running costs, always look at the new price. A V8 is a
  4. My old man built a kit car when I was around 15 ( early/mid 1980s ) so we went to a few Kit Car shows and I read a lot of kitcar magazines at the time and I always though the Nova was bloody brilliant.
  5. I do. The Great Egg Race !!!
  6. I would't say that was predictable, but there are as yet undiscovered tribes in the Amazon that knew someone would say that. Oh, and doubt the "school of hard knocks".
  7. Following on from the thread about higher education cost ( it was all different in my day ! ); which Uni/Poly did you attend ? I'll start : Sunderland Poly.
  8. Alex is 100% correct with his comments about how students live today compared with say 20 years ago ( which, as it happens, was when I was at poly ). Year 1 : Halls, so I got one reasonable meal a day ! Years 2 & 3 : Bottom half of a terraced house, with a mate. We had one bedroom each, a kitchen and a bathroom. It was not very smart, but it was clean ( and we kept it clean ). The gas and electric were paid weekly. I had a BBC micro even though PCs were about then. We drank in the Union bars because they were much cheaper than the town. I washed my clothes in the bath ( they never really looked that clean ! ). I can remember going to out to eat in a restaurant twice in 3 years. Most students I knew ( me included ) did manage to live on their grants, if the watched very carefully what they spent their money on. But, never mind the above, my big point is this : A student knows they will be in debt when they finish, so they think "well, what's another
  9. I've been updating my website, and here are the results, which I'm quite pleased with : My Nice New Site There's quite a lot of Lotus stuff, as well as Noble and pussy. ( And my business one : My Company Site )
  10. S3 N/A @ 23 Turbo @ 27 GT3 @ 29 Sport 350 @ 35 Then Noble M12 @ 38
  11. "Also, last month the turbo seemed to stop working, it drives fine, but does need looking at, i " What ? Well, the Turbo on my GT3 stopped working and I certainly say it did not drive fine !! If a main dealer fixes it then that's a
  12. A most agreeable weekend, apart from the rain. I managed to drive at least 50% further than I should have done by going the wrong way whilst leaving, and I think I like the closest to the place !
  13. A yellow V8 with a 2002 end ( I did not notice the reg ) parked in the Ulverstone area this morning.
  14. The ad says it's been resprayed. It's also had the sport 300 wing removed which I fitted not long before I sold it. I've some interior shots that the seller has emailed me and that looks amazingly good as well. I sold it in 1998 with around 60,000 as I recall so it's doing well.
