Daily use classics, very rare now.

Who actually still uses a classic car as daily transport? Classics are now a very rare sight on the road. I do a 50 mile trip to work in either my Dolomite, Minor or Midget and never see another old car. A few shiny ones have appeared recently flashing their lights and waving at me. I obviously igno...

Re: How much do I sell my car for?

Having seen that Hillman around locally I can say it does look very nice. Its a much rarer and more interesting car than the a Minor though, I would certainly want to keep it! Hope it finds a good home and it would be a shame to take the number off it.

Re: FAVOURITE LOCOMOTIVES (TRAINS)

For a short time from the early 60s into the 70s we were blessed with several classes of diesel locomotives which had German Maybach engines and hydraulic transmissions. The finest of these locos were the D1000 Western class. These had two Maybach MD series V12 engines and were a pleasure to see and...

Re: FAVOURITE LOCOMOTIVES (TRAINS)

Thats a Class 37. It has a 12 cylinder English Electric diesel engine. This drives a generator which powers the traction motors, one on each axle, via various control equipment. Class 37s are a very well regarded locomotive and there are still a number of them in main line service.

Re: Introducing Hetty!

Nice find. As for the colour, its your car and up to you what colour you paint it. There are plenty of Minors around in original colours/trim anyway. If the car is solid I would keep it and make it into the car you want. Limeflower was a hideous colour, it looked vile on MGs too! Just my opinion of ...

Re: Favourite whisky (corrected)

A lost distillery, such a shame. A pub near hear has it on their whisky menu, 18.95 a go, and it really is magnificent.
