  4. i sold my gt6 ages ago for a half arsed reason after spending months sorting it i still really really regret it. i can't afford one now i sold my clan crusader rally car for a half arse....... i sold my fzr1000 exup for a half.... i have a tired esprit and a nearly finished tasmin i can't afford to run at the moment there is no way either of them are going, it's a lifestyle thing i guess HTH
  5. jet washed the 'good' 907 today (inlets are taped up) after liberal doses of Gunk changed from black to shiney and i now see how the cambelt tensioner works a small step, but a positive one. shame the centre terminal fell out of the dizzy cap when i had a look at it. more expense for the unemployed but hey ho, 2 forward, 1 back, it was a good day! And i picked up a guitar for the first time in ages. and its sunday tomorrow

  10. just had this with the ratty old tasmin the old girl was sitting in cumbria for a few months, then i drove it onto the trailer to go to crewe and it stank of petrol got it off the trailer, drove it onto the drive, leaving a trail of fuel. eek! on inspection, it wasn't the tanks or high pressure pump side but the RETURN fuel side. this was the low pressure, cloth covered, old style fuel pipe circa 1980 and it was totally rotten. there were 7 or 8 bits to replace, very complicated twin tank return system, typical british engineering, very random! twisted the pipe in my hands and it literally tored apart all sorted now, but i haven't even looked at the esprit stuff yet probably replace it all, full stop so check all of it! twice!! and get an extinguisher
  11. hi all bit of a do on today and tomorrow 2000 cars and autojumble. tvr club showing much plasticness apparently cheers
  12. exquisitely styled, perfect ride, inspired tuning even stupid pillocks realise it's tremendous entering serious powerslides releases incredible torque (later cars anyway) everyone should praise real inovative technology
  13. Learned Onlookers Take Us Seriously Let Others Try Understanding Superiority Limping Otters Terminate Unusual Serendipity OK, I could only think of two...............
  14. IMHO none of the teams HAVE to race under F1 rules, they choose to do so. Obviously you will get politics, espescially where lots and lots of money is involved. As long as the cars go round and round, I'm happy to let them bicker to their hearts content. The safety of the drivers is the inportant thing and that seems to have got a lot better, the rest is just humans being humans. If there are more cars going round and round, all the better! And yes, bring back lotus into F1....somehow
