Upgraded forum subscription packages are now available here - this costs from just 4p a day so please consider supporting the forum. All discussion boards and technical forums will continue to be visible to all users. Forum software add-ons including the Private Messaging and Photo Uploader systems will be deprecated during August for free members.

New posts in the IB Cars and Parts Classifieds, Marketplace Discussions and Wanted Ads sections are now restricted to supporting members only. Access to the Classifieds, Marketplace Discussions and Wanted Ads section will be supporting members only from September 1st.

Note that the rules on trade adverts have not changed. IB still does not permit trade ads, but I am working on an 'IB Professional' supporter's option which may be of interest.

  1. And tonight Matthew I will be Auntie Doreen from County Down. 🤣
  2. Completely agree sheriff. This is the only forum I have signed up to, and I have to say that the other members I have met, or had communications with have never failed to be repectful, and helpful. Long may it continue.
  3. Done, this forum chat brightens my work lunchtimes every day.
  4. Mine's exceedingly boring, much like myself no doubt. njp are my initials and Carrera32 because I've got a 3.2. See, absolutely no imagination whatsoever...
  5. Reading the release seems like it's a technical insolvency to allow them to restructure debts, much like many retailers have done in the UK.
  6. Hi Haith, sorry the 15th won't work for me as it's Haze's birthday weekend and I stand no chance of getting a pass out. However I could do something either the Tuesday or Wednesday before?
  7. My A4 drivers seat looked that baggy after 55k miles....
  8. Anyone else from the forum going on Sunday? First post-lockdown race meeting for me, hopefully will help to lift my mood somewhat.
  9. Ditto. Was on my shortlist when I bought the 3.2, 7 years ago. Most likely. The Riley was the GTI version with twin carbs, Grandad had a maroon one at about the same time as Mum had the Wolseley.
  10. I know this seems strange, but early childhood memories rekindled by this. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1957-Wolseley-1500-saloon-4-speed-manual/114307178152?hash=item1a9d3d1ea8:g:F3cAAOSwU~RfEErX Mum had one of these as her first car as a district nurse back in '67, with the same colour scheme.
  11. Plenty to drool over in this Saturday's Historics auction. https://www.historics.co.uk/buying/auctions/2020-07-18/cars/
  12. Can't see them listed, but I do a run from Champagnole to Geneva once a year, and they are great roads as well. The Jura is spectacular, with quiet roads.
  13. Boohoo , I was the only IB there. Plenty of other Porsches: 924, 924 Carrera GTS, 944, 993, 996, 997, etc, but not another IB in sight.
  14. I've got an Alfa Romeo sized itch at the moment, which I am in danger of scratching with a GTV6 from S. Africa. The attractions are: RHD market, better climate so less rust, and prices apparently much lower than the UK. Does anyone in the forum have direct recent experience of importing a car from S. Africa who could share there experiences and educate me on the more obvious pitfalls.
  15. Chris, I can have a scout for you at Prescott on Sunday if you like. If I see anyone I know has a Bugatti, I will ask them, or I can ask club office to put something into the weekly e-mail. Let me know if of interest. BR, Nigel
  16. Might add this to the 'Things I'm currently drooling over' thread. 💓
  17. I can beat that. Haze won't get into an automatic, neither as the driver nor the passenger. Limits my choice on a daily somewhat...
  18. 🥇 Good luck in the role Chris. Please don't put the membership fees up too much, it's mine and Hazel's 30th anniversary with the club next year and I want the badge...
  19. I agree, nice simple visual management. I only realised that the tax had run out on my daily when I got a somewhat stroppy automated letter from DVLA threatening to impound my car if I continued to use it without tax. The original reminder letter had never been received.
  20. Loads of 'sold' boards gone up round here in the last 2 weeks. I was originally planning to change my daily in the autumn, have now decided to leave it until next Spring given I'm not clocking up 1700 miles a month, and won't be for the forseeable.
  21. The Bugatti Owners Club is starting events from this weekend for members only. The second event which is open to members of other invited car clubs, which I think includes PCGB, is next Sunday the 12 July. Cost is £15 per run up the hill. Link to ticket purchase is here, note that you have to select a time as the club is limiting the number of people on site to maintain social distancing. https://www.prescotthillclimb.co.uk/event-details/prescott-drive-thru-day-for-invited-car-clubs I've booked for 2 runs in the early afternoon slot. Hope some can make it.
  22. Definitely not. To Mr Bernau's point, if I am forced by legislation or unavailability of fuel, then I will sadly move on to other things (probably my stamp collection, or golf, or whatever). I've had the sounds and smells of ICE's coursing through my veins for the last 57 years, and I have nothing else that engages me in the same way. My 17 year old can't wait for the day when he can experience the thrill from the drivers seat, rather than the passenger seat, and he sees cars primarily as a form of transport, not a passion.
  23. God! I was 4 months old when that was written. But I bet my Dad had a copy of the magazine.
  24. I note that my Waze no longer has option for warning about Police or mobile cameras, though fixed camera locations still pop up.
