Re: Bubble car museum

Seems it is dog friendly and round the corner from the biggest collection of Austin A30/35’s in the world!

Re: MESSAGE BOARD REPLACEMENT

Once in a while I toy with the idea of getting a phone with a camera, then I think no,my wife loves doing things like that. No point in having a dog and doing your own barking :wink:

Bubble car museum

Anyone been? We’re on holiday in Lincolnshire next week,but the wrong end of the county and wondered if it was worth an hour trip ( and if they are dog friendly).

Re: Phishing/Virus emails

Sadly, a small proportion of people make their living from robbing others. It’s always been the case. A century ago they would have been pickpockets. Two centuries ago highwaymen. Whatever they are called it’s disgraceful!

Re: Dash cam and reversing cam

Easy to get a front and rear dashcam. But I guess you are looking for a rear view camera?
I’ve not come across a combined unit.

Not sure that a Minor would resemble a ‘50’s taxi! :lol:

Re: Informal classic vehicle gatherings

I agree, the local events are more fun with a wider variety of cars to drool over :D

Re: Quality of New Parts

At the risk of being controversial, could I suggest that the parsimonious ways of Minor owners over the years may have encouraged manufacturers to produce shoddy goods at low prices?

Weekends away

We do these occasionally with friends. They take their old Saab and we go in whatever seems sensible at the time. Anyway,went to Bristol last weekend, what a fabulous place to visit and SS Great Britain is unmissable. The Trav behaved impeccably there and back!

Re: Body paint

Check out the paint number and you should be able to get some mixed. Cheaper than rattle cans too!

Re: 1275 engine, 5 speed gearbox, & propshaft

When Wares did my Traveller I enquired about the Toyota box, but they were like rocking horse manure. Got the type 9 instead and been very happy with it.

Re: Another van.

Anyone without a dog is missing out on one of the best things in life! We used to have big dogs (Irish Water Spaniels) but with advancing years have found smaller dogs easier. Now totally hooked on Bedlington Terriers!

Re: Strange sticker

So, were rollers and bentleys still using cellulose paint at the time?
