  1. With this lovely weather, I've managed to dust off my little red car for a trip to SpecSavers and also to Sainsburys --- oh what joy!! But I did do the long (30 miles) country road route home, roof down, which was brilliant and really got the adrenaline flowing for future, more legal, whizzes around the countrysideπŸ‘.
  2. I leave mine permanently on a CTEK battery charger/conditioner when the car is not in use - which is most of the time at the moment due to lockdown and salty (very!!) roads.πŸ‘
  3. Suggest (as others have) that you get it booked in for an MOT now - because if and when lockdown happens, its more than likely that there will be a long wait before you can get it booked in.
  4. My first jab is booked for tomorrow. Yes, I am an oldie but still here and enjoying my classic cars - Covid and weather allowing!!πŸ‘
  5. Same 'not available...' comment for me as well - perhaps it has been withdrawn? Can't wait to get out of 'lockdown' and drive the cars on some brilliant roads, hopefully with good weather ---- hood is always down anyway (except in heavy rain!).πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  6. Really looking forward to your continuing updates - but don't finish it too quickly as this is such a great thread. -- Or if you do, please start another project with Mrs WC!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  7. Re bodywork - try Tom Martin at Lemass (01494 874347)- a two man outfit who specialises in 'old' porsche panel work and painting. He is in Chalfont St. Peter Bucks. He has done excellent work on my 3.2 (and other cars I have). He is a perfectionist and charges sensible prices. I've also used Peter Tognola and also Ray North at Northways for mechanical work.
  8. Roy, we all never want our much loved dogs to get old but it is one of the main problems with owning pets - they become such an emotional tie (but worth every minute of ownership - which is also a two way feeling for owner and dogπŸ•).
  9. Thanks for your update and sorry it doesn't appear to have had an appreciable effect so far - perhaps Oscar's arthritis is too well established. 🀞🀞🀞
  10. Happy New Year, Roy, Did you get the YuMove for Oscar? and if so, have you seen any improvement?πŸ•
  11. Sorry to see this, what a bummer!!!! As others have said, its not really what you need, especially during these troubled times! Hopefully it gets sorted out quickly and painlessly for you (but not the drunk driver!). Thank god he didn't hit a pedestrian or cyclist!! Anyway, Happy New Year, when it arrives.
  12. It's oviously keeping you out of mischief during lockdownπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ
  13. DG, my wife says exactly the same things about all the Jag, Porsche and Aston spares I have accumulated over the years and are dotted around the garages, plus all the car equipment stuff eg engine hoists, compressors etc! Having taken the hint, I advertised some of the car 'spares' on the club websites earlier this year and managed to get rid (sell!!) a lot. Mind you, there is still a lot left! Main problem will be when we eventually down-size in the near future!! But, I'll cross that bridge when we get to it! Also, with this lock-down, I reckon we could manage with jus
  14. I forgot to say that they take several days before any improvement is seen.πŸ•
  15. Hope they work, or at least improve Oscar's condition πŸ‘πŸ€žπŸ‘ For my two dogs, it obviously wasn't a placebo effect as they didn't know they were being treated!!
