  1. Spotted this lunchtime in Chippenham, A rather tidy looking Austin Seven Saloon (Ruby?) and the tail end of a Mark One Capri disappearing of towards Bath. Cheers, Alan.
  2. I love the look of this bike. I remember back in the late 70s in Reading, seeing a guy in a business suit whizzing up Broad Street on one of these! I have my eyes on this one at some point... Cheers, Alan.
  3. Mine was slightly better. Only stolen and recovered twice! Eventually, I sold it. As I said, I still wish I had it. Cheers, Alan.
  4. Hi Gary, I had one of these back in the Late 80's. It was red too. Mine was the 16V version. Went like stink in a straight line. Didn't like bumpy bends, though. Still wish I had it though... Cheers, Alan.
  5. Some people have event plonked the Rover 3.5 Vr in the back of a beetle! With Cherry Bomb silences (!). A handful, I would imagine! Cheers, Alan.
  6. I know that feeling ! Cheers, Alan.
  7. Hateful? Surely a bit strong? I think the new (BMW) Mini is a great evocation of the original. Cheers, Alan.
  8. That was the bike I always dreamed of having when I was a lad. Eventually got myself a VF-750F in the early eighties. Loved that bike! Cheers, Alan.
  9. Hi Spiny, That's why I don't use CA very much! I tend to fit such small items as wipers with a hi-tack PVA glue, available from such places as Hobbycraft. It holds them well, and if you do drop the item on the body, you can wipe off the glue with a moist cloth or tissue. CA has its uses, but I find it fiddly and messy for some tasks. Cheers, Alan.
  10. Hi Keith, Yes it was. A colleague of mine, who is a Mini fanatic, was there on the day. There were thousands of minis from all over the world in attendance. Even one from New Zealand apparently. North Bristol was swarming with them! Cheers, Alan.
  11. Was that east of Bristol? There was a big Mini festival in Bristol last Saturday. Minis from all over the world according to a colleague at work who was there. It's great to see these little gems still running... Cheers, Alan.
  12. Looks mean! Don't tangle with this guy! Cheers, Alan.
  13. Hi Matthew, That sounds like a good idea. I'll bookmark this so I can refer back to it when I start. Cheers, Alan.
  14. Hi Marco, Thanks for the info. I think this one is going to be more or less, stock. Cheers, Alan.
  15. I think that the time for trying to remove the existing tyres and replacing them with Aoshima tyres is probably long passed. I think with a bit of application of abrasive on them, they'll look better. However, I might just take a look... Cheers, Alan.
