There are still lots of cars requesting your email and it says Germany in the listing :evil:
That's probably the most prolific offender, reported to ebay dozens of times. Police should go after him as I have no doubt its linked to organised crime. He often lists cars owned by WRCC

Re: Phishing/Virus emails

If you right-click on the dodgy email and choose 'examine' you can usually see the senders real email address. What you do with this is up to you!

Re: Spotted today.

Talked to the owner, it was actually a more 'oily rag' car close up, very honest and original. There were a number of Minors in attendance on Sunday plus loads of other very nice cars. A good day out.

Re: Morris Minor Specialists

My local old car specialist retired a couple of years back. Always used to enjoy going there as you never knew what would be there at the time. Used to be loads of MGs, occasional Astons and Jags and much other interesting oldies along with the moderns. He was also very reasonably priced

Very tidy '52 MM series in Northallerton at lunchtime today, MRW registration. Not one I've seen around these parts before. Possibly in town for this Sundays classic car show in the High Street

Probably very nice but the brand name has unpleasant connotations.

Re: tyres

They do the Michelin X - I had 7 years and 50000 off a set. They weren't over £100 back then though.

Re: Exhaust raspberries

A shorter tailpipe farts less. I once fitted a full new system and the tailpipe projected past the bumper. To prevent damage from reversing I had the angle grinder out and lobbed a good 6 inches off, definite difference.

Re: Speed Limiters

Ooooh...Daily Mail... Best use for that is to stop minor oil leaks from marking the floor. OK perhaps a kneejerk reaction....but once the technology is there I am sure the next step is control and monitoring. Look at the burgeoning forests of cash... I mean speed cameras. I don't condone excessive s...

Re: Speed Limiters

Only a non-driver would suggest fitting all cars with speed limiters. Nanny state gone mad. Picture the situation - you go to overtake and as you get alongside the limiter cuts in just as a truck appears coming the other way. There are times when the ability to exceed the limit is regretfully necess...

Re: Currently drinking.....

We took some friends to Mount St Bernard Abbey yesterday and bought a couple of bottles of their Trappist ale to try. The monks have given up on dairy farming and have revived their brewing tradition. Beautifully made and presented but you almost need a spoon to get it out of the bottle! Too strong...
