Re: Minor with CAT fitted

One thing that I’ve learned in my moderately long life is never get into an argument about politics, religion or,most importantly, cats versus dogs 🐕.

Re: Old Nottingham Images

To be fair, Nottingham took more care of its heritage than most cities. It’s still a handsome place.
By contrast Derby destroyed most of its finest buildings back in the ‘60s to build a road. :evil:

Re: New member saying "Hello"

There’s a lot of ex-bobbys interested in, and running Minors :wink:
Saw a clip on the tv recently of some low life in a stolen Minor giving the police a problem... West Yorkshire I think?

Re: Authenticity of Vehicles

As years go on, it becomes increasingly difficult to confirm originality/authenticity. Over the past 50+ years generations of people have done work to these cars, some good and some not so good. In the absence of definitive information I think the best course is to ensure that a car is sound and hon...

Re: Wiring trafficators and indicator lights

I suggest that you get the flashers and trafficators to work separately.
Put the trafficators on a classic teardrop switch, so you can use them for fun,shows etc.
When they are wired to work together they are very prone to get snapped off!! Ask me how I know :wink:

Re: Flasher Unit again

I have a couple of minor flasher cans in my spares box and one is larger than the other! The larger one appears to be more substantially made.
Maybe from a different tin hut in a faraway place 😀

As Steve's a "regular" we make allowances :wink: . Also, I think driving a Beetle makes him appreciate how good a car a Minor is :lol:
:D :D Yes, the Minor is a better car to drive, but the B****e is a lot of fun and the chrome is better quality.

Re: Bodges

As a student, back in the early ‘70’s, a few friends and I bought a Minor. There were big holes in the floor. We liberated lot of old beer cans from the back of the union bar, flattened them, riveted them together and stuck them to the floor. A bit of carpet and a lick of under seal. Mot wasn’t a pr...

Re: Dead battery

I would think that the battery is under warranty. Our local ‘battery shop’ will test for free and replace if faulty.
