Re: Exhaust Age

MY 2002 Focus is still on its original exhaust! If it ever fails MoT badly it'll make a great donor car as it has the 2.0 Zetec with low miles and FSH

Nearest to modern for me is Ozric Tentacles. Live at the Sunrise Festival and Erpland are superb.

Re: valuation prices

I have always preferred the style of the SII, the 2 door is the best looking Minor IMHO. Wouldn't have the 803 though, the 948 is a much sweeter and tunable engine. Still looking for the right car. On the wider issue of valuations, there are a lot of later cars at speculative prices, especially Trav...

When the kids were small we found soiled disposable nappies would burn, any niff went up the chimney.

Beats me why ebay doesn't ban their IP address or get the fraud squad involved. Reeks of organised crime.

Re: Carboot Bargain

I have a Kamasa 1/2" drive socket set from the 1970s. Only one socket ever failed and that was because the socket handle had a 4 foot pipe on it (stupid tyre fitter had used a windy gun). It was the best tenner I ever spent. Old Kamasa are very underrated, newer ones are rubbish.
