I always worry about earliest and latest claims because I know if I bought such a car an older or newer one would turn up within about a week making mine just another car.

Hang on, you paid DOUBLE the required fee to use a space and the council said if you did it again the fine would stay? After 30 years in local government I'm sad to say in many areas a council are no longer there to help the community but to punish people where by doing so income generation has bee...

Re: Expensive Traveller at Aston Workshop.

A car for somebody with the money and not prepared to wait for a fresh restoration at £24-£26k from one of the big restoration people?

I seem to remember a trafalgar blue traveller selling for around £23k at brightwells auction a few months back.

Re: Rover 3.5 V8 Engine Required.

Looking at options hopefully an sd1 or range rover engine with the later oil seals and heads Had a camera down No.6 and the top of piston is missing , if I'm very lucky I may get away with a piston but I think that's unlikely and I expect a rebuild is likely to be a lot more expensive than an engine.

Re: Here's a new one.

I arrived into the work car park the other day to see a colleagues Merc boot open. When mentioned to him, after a few choice words he said it kept opening from the remote in his pocket when he moved about! Also said it had opened one night it rained and soaked everything inside :lol: Not just Merc'...
