Re: Rear Lights on a 4 door.

Hi All
Thanks for the info re the spares that the club hold .I may well try them.
The two firms listed on as having them haven’t got them in stock I’m afraid.
I asked at a trade stall at a rally and they said that they might have some by the end of the year.
Regards
Steve

Re: XAR 372F 1967 4 door Trafalgar Blue

Hi
Thanks for that .I did look up this information but it is the section before those dates that I am interested in .
The info on DVLA only goes back to 2006 which I have receipts for .
Thanks again

XAR 372F 1967 4 door Trafalgar Blue

Hi All I bought my car just over a year ago but it only came with MOTs from 2012 onwards .It also came with receipts from 2006 and then 2012 to 2015 all from the same spares company.

Re: Where to purchase cars?

I would definitely contact a local branch and talk to them about any members who might be selling their cars or know of one for sale. Also unless you are mechanically minded I would definitely take someone with you when you go and view the said car.If you haven’t got anyone you know to go with you ,...

Re: Ashtray in centre near hand brake.

Hi thanks for the reply, does that mean I have to lift the carpet or can I just screw it in anywhere even though I’d be screwing it in fresh sort of thing.Is there anything in that part of the car to avoid.
Many thanks
Steve
