    Fairlady at auction

    Just checked their website and here is what they say: In line with the latest Government guidelines and advice, the auction will be completley virtual, and therefore we cannot offer a viewing day as we have done previously. However, we are increasing the video content of each of the cars...

    Fairlady at auction

    And yet another! What’s going on!! Well - just had their catalogue through the post and no indication they are calling it off. Volvo running great thanks - went through its MOT last month with no advisories. 7200 miles since last year’s MOT.

    Turning Japanese - again!

    Thanks for the info - all very useful. Mine has 205/45/16s on the front and 225/45/16s on the back. First thing I did was put four new tyres straight on. The back ones proved hardest to source and as I wanted the same all round went for Toyas in the end. I think mine is the Rev 4 model so a...

    Turning Japanese - again!

    The Volvo is garaged but this has to live on my drive. But I am laid back about it. I got it at an incredible price after buying it at a classic car auction.

    Turning Japanese - again!

    For those of you who still remember me when I was on here with my 260Z, you may be interested to know that whilst I have still got my lovely 1968 Volvo 1800S I have also ventured back into the Japanese sports car market. I have just purchased this little mid-engined beauty to use as my every...

    Good to see you again Tim and pleased to see you looking so well. I sleep easy every night knowing my precious 260Z is in such good hands.

    Oulton Park Gold Cup, August 24-26th

    Chris - four cylinders is clearly enough. I mean - when did you EVER see anyone get away from Simon Templar?? Thanks to all for making me so welcome on the day and allowing a Swedish intruder onto your plot. Nice to see my old motor again too. It is in very good hands with Tim.

    What did you do to your Z this week?

    I agree. That interior is not nice.

    What did you do to your Z this week?

    Thanks very much. It feels very sixties when you drive it - but everything (heater, wipers etc) works beautifully. Not particularly fast off the mark (it’s a 1.8 four cylinder twin-carb) but it will bob along very comfortably at 70 in overdrive on the motorway and return 35 mpg so that does for...

    What did you do to your Z this week?

    Thank you - though the Rover was a fast, powerful car that was extremely comfortable! The Volvo ticks all the classic car boxes for me - and (though you may laugh in disbelief) I intend to keep this one! I had to look long and hard to find one and there are very few around now. It is a 1968...

    Got a new motor!

    Thanks Rob. I may drive down to see you in it one day. But will I let you drive it? I don’t think so! Last time I was down there you drove me round the back lanes near your house in that Samuri. The problem is, the GT86 does not have a brown interior…

    Got a new motor!

    You’re dead right. Though coming out of the car park there on a rainy day I did try the sport mode that turns off all the traction control and as I hit the gas the back end did a very satisfying twitch! Almost spilt my groceries!

    Got a new motor!

    Rear wheel drive too. And you can turn off all the traction/other computer stuff if you want to.
