  1. Ha Nige….. I was referring to “Pony & trap” (crap)….. which is exactly what I think of the idea of autonomous driving.
  2. Pretty sure we all know what ‘Pony’ means in Cockney rhyming slang!! 😉😉
  3. I assume you’ve seen that 924 on Car and Classic auctions Les? It’s listed as for spares or repair & ends in a couple of days. Currently at £100 with no reserve. Appreciate you need next to nothing parts wise for yours, but just thought I’d mention it in case you hadn’t seen it. Looking forward to seeing the continued updates on yours re the paint BTW. 👍🏻
  4. All personal preference I know, but I would opt for the C30 over the TT in a heartbeat. Because of the fact that they’re actually fairly rare compared to the TT, they’re seen as a bit cool by some. The T5 will be a quick thing & will surprise a fair few ‘hot hatches’ out there. A couple of the lads at work had D5 C30s & they were bloody fast for a diesel, & the T5 is a big lump for a little car like that. One more pot than most of the similar cars of the era too. What’s not to like? The one you’ve identified looks to have been well looked after with decent history & the mileage is low for the age. My 2 quids worth, & good luck.
  5. Just out of interest, where’s Leigh’s Garage Targa? Quick search on t’interweb doesn’t find anything, & I don’t do Social media.
  6. I have to say I think they’re alright & a little different / individual. They’re very ‘retro’ which is all the rage at the moment. I think they do have a fairly narrow market audience though (typically slightly older classic car buffs). I would probably wear one on an appropriate occasion, especially if they are superior quality. I do like a polo that lasts a good few years!!
  7. Thanks Lund, but I’m in the minority in that I don’t have a social media account of any sort. Seems that I may have put them up a tad too late for you to have had them. Cheers anyway. P.S. Cars look great. 👍🏻
  8. Appreciate the advice. Cheers 👍🏻
  9. Hi all, As per the title with coloured crest centre caps. They're not genuine & were made in Italy by the same company that made the genuine Boost Alloys for a Land Rover Defender. They're in excellent condition with hardly any imperfections & would make a decent track day set, or maybe even bling up a VW camper etc etc. Fronts: 7.5Jx17 ET23 Shod with Bridgestone Potenzas 215 / 45 R17 87W. 80% tread depth remaining but they are very old. Rears: 9Jx17 ET15 Shod with Bridgestone Potenzas 255 / 40 R17 94W, Not much life left in them & again they are old. I'm looking for £250 which I think is more than reasonable. They will need to be collected from North Bucks in person, or potentially I can meet somewhere if mutually suitable. Cheers, Fleety.
  10. Hi Ian, you could also try EM Rogers from Northampton. They’re primarily a classic car transport firm but also have a sales business (Morse Classics). I know John Rogers very well & they have imported many cars from America & also trucks from Holland for their fleet. This would be meat & drink to them. 👍🏻
  11. All the best John. 👍🏻
  12. All the best to you & your loved ones. Surely we’re all in for better times ahead. 🤞🏻🤞🏻
  13. Does this count chaps? I’ve had a hankering every year for at least the last 10 years to pass my bike test. The hankering was really strong this year so (at 53 yrs old) finally decided to do my CBT in Oct. I had a MTX125 years ago when you could just ride on L plates, so have half an idea. The plan was to do the CBT & see if I was still excited enough to take it any further. Suffice to say I had a really enjoyable day with a top chap for an instructor. Next thing I know, I’ve sniffed out this really clean CB125R with a few hundred quids worth of extras on it, for very reasonable money. The idea is to hone my limited skills on it, & then hopefully do my direct access next year. 🤞
  14. I love updates on this thread Stephen (almost as much as I love new episodes of Project Binky!), but that photo of the tipper / grab would have been so much better were it a Volvo FMX!! 😁
  15. White IB having a run out on bank holiday Monday. Turned off just as we managed to catch up.
