That’s the worst head gasket I’ve seen Barry, I think you just about dodged the bullet getting that home, it should be good to go once replaced.

Are you getting the head skimmed or is it still good to go?

Still something to tinker with for a bit now just for a respray 😂

Dave 👍🏻🙂

 

Do or do not, there is no try!

The problem with with bucket list cars is that every time i think of compiling a list it becomes obvious that I have champagne tastes on a beer budget. And whenever I manage to get the bucket full of

I really like the continental gt - they can be had for an absolute bargain price.  Ive taken lotus to work more than once - here’s the S4s at a shed not far from me 

Evora 400 IPS but most likely wait til 2021.  Renault Alpine but will wait til they are sub 30k.  Renault 16TX but will probably never bother.  Renault 21 turbo...fear the running costs

I quite like the little Figaro.

my version of the cav was a 405mi16x4

saw one on eBay this morning but way too much work and no where to do it☹️
got loads to do to the Esprit but just can’t find the motivation.

Have managed to tick off one of the bucket list cars though so might see if I can muster the enthusiasm to give the ghibli a clean and polish.

I’d like to see a photo of your Ghibli. My brother‘s got one of those, an RHD SS manual.

It should soon be returning from its latest fettling and respray in original Ischia blu.

New head gasket, radiator, cam belt kit, full service, two small welding sections done. She runs like a dream - just need to find the timing light to ensure she’s bang on. Then it’s just two brake pipes to replace and she can go for her mot. Missus will be very happy.

Oh my god @Barrykearley. You kidnapped Percy Pig!

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I've always fancied an S3 Esprit, I just love the clean lines of the n/a cars. A Ferrari 246 Dino has always been up there , I can't see that one happening given the £300k price tag, I met a guy bought 2 for restoration in the 80's, £14k the pair... right place, right time I guess! Beyond that a nice E-Type wouldn't be a bad thing, maybe an XK140, Roadster in Racing Green, a nice Austin Healy 3000, something for the weekend Sir? Too many more to list...

What can you want that the Evora couldn't give you?

A couple of guys on here have gone for a Ferarri recently. Is there a theme happening?

More importantly.... what does the mrs. want?

Absolutely not interested in cars 👍

A change - doesn’t need to be better - just different. I’d doubt frankly as a full on driving machine I’m pretty sure and Evora couldn’t be beaten.

surprised no one has posted this previously. It failed to sell - which isn’t a shock to me frankly.

I keep looking at the continentals.  Mrs has fallen for the ghibli and can’t stand the bentley which is making it harder (not impossible, just more difficult). 

I like Petes suggestion of a scimitar.

other options could be:

P1800

Aston Martin db7 or 9

jag xk8 and xkr’s are reasonable prices

AC 3000ME saw one for sale this week

Maserati 4200 or granturismo depending upon funds.

Which model of TVR is it?
