Re: Sale of Logbooks

Over the last few years if I see a log book for sale I report it to ebay and eventually some of them are taken off. We all know what the old log books will eventually be used for. E bay has now banned me from reporting them. Its going to be much easier to clone a stolen minor now.

Re: Which seat base?

Yes really ! My Panda still has the original rubber diaphragms on the front seats. I know they are the original ones as I drove this car brand new out of Surbiton police station in April 1968 as a serving police officer. They were probably made of better material in those days.

Re: Which seat base?

All met Morris Minor Pandas were fitted with the rubber diaphragm to take account of large bums. I never knew of any failures and they did take a lot of punishment.

Re: Quality tools

My King Dick ring spanners were bought to maintain my Norman Auto cycle the fore runner of the Moped powered by a Villiers 98cc two stroke engine. You started it by pedalling like crazy until it fired then off you went at lightning speed !!!

Quality tools

At the age of 16 I purchased a set of King Dick ring spanners. Now at the age of 80 they are still giving sterling service. If you buy the best they will last a lifetime.

Re: Ex-Police Equipment

It was completely by chance looking through car and classic on the internet and there it was, luckily the person selling it had shown the registration number on the photo so I knew it was mine.

It all depends on which force it belonged to. Different forces had different equipment and paint. Best find out which force it came from first.

Relatives

I've heard that if you have relatives round for Christmas the police will come and make them go away. Is this a free service or do you have to book !!
