Re: need more luggage space

Roof racks can damage roof guttering unless carefully fitted and increase fuel consumption. Also act like sails! Sounds like you need a traveller.

Re: painting front grille??

I'd do what you like the look of. If you change your mind it's not a big job to repaint it.

Re: Perambulator Folding Garages

I agree that a good quality breathable cover can be a good storage solution. My beetle had been kept that way and had survived very well. For a regularly used car, though, covers are a pain for all sorts of reasons!

My old Gran always said good manners were the most important skill any one could have. I think we've all slipped a bit lately, but some folks have no manners.

Re: Oil leakage

You proper mechanics are unbelievable! I love driving the old girls but if anything serious goes wrong it's down to see Richard at the local garage(£30/hr). Making me lazy but nice to support the local village, and he's MUCH better than me! And he has a ramp.

overservoing

now I hate my wife's new Golf. Ok it's well made, comfy, economical,etc. Brakes great at speed but crawling off the drive, brake at your peril...head off the windscreen!! Seems makers are 'overservoing' new cars because drivers, in emergencies, aren't pushing brakes hard enough to activate abs. More...

Re: Perambulator Folding Garages

Mine was open at one end and no plants transpiring. The tractor stayed dry and rust free.

Re: Perambulator Folding Garages

I used to keep my Kubota mini tractor in a poly tunnel. Often thought it would be ideal for a Morris or two. Putting a car cover on a wet classic car can't be a good idea. They rust well enough without any help.

They look right and a fab price. Hey, are you on the A30 forum as well? Just managed to get back on it today after a 3 year sabbatical!

Re: A car for the family to enjoy

A decent Traveller takes some beating! I'm always collecting stuff that won't go in the Bosses year old Golf. And it's a lot more fun.

Yes Samuria, they look just like my Charlie Ware ones, but a bit cheaper. Are they resisting the rust?

Re: Quaterlite Mirrors

I've been very pleased with the classic chrome mirrors from Charles Ware. Look right, not bad to adjust and haven't gone rusty after 3 years.

Re: A car for the family to enjoy

I agree that a Traveller would be far more practical. Also much better rear vision so safer. Some in your price range in latest Minor Matters ads.

Re: Supermarket petrol.

That's what works for us! The old cars seem to like the dearer stuff and the Bosses new golf runs fine on anything. Couldn't prove it, of course, just how it seems to be.
