Saabitar at Sparkford breakfast meet

I didn't ask him much, he had a few mates with him, it was starting to drizzle and my other half was suitably unimpressed too (she had been very good looking at lots of old landies in the rain that morning, even driving one there so I mustn't complain). He did say that it had fitted behind the cross...

My ideal GTE

One can only dream. Back in the day there were all sorts of 'under dash' heads offered and some are again. If you can fit air con in a classic mini ….. there seems to be more room for it in the SE4 engine bay than others. Thinking of an ideal huge fun daily driver. There is no room for air con rads ...

My ideal GTE

Even my own meandering thoughts are getting me irritated. Saw a rat rod 5A at Sparkford at Sunday breakfast meet. The size is right but it made me realise that a dashboard is more important to me that I had thought, how nuts is that? Not sure I really like even the 5A dash, but the 5 is great. Mates...

Fitting wire wheels on a SE4a Coupe

Hi Chris, Thanks for the measurement. I will now be able to identify the correct size wheels for the SE4a. Not sure if I shall go for chrome or painted. Depends on how much cash is left after total restoration. Overhauling everything on an old dog, including a paint off respray there is a limit you...

Two famous Sabre Sixes on the market

Stunning cars all 3. At £24-95k though I will remain a distant admired. Makes the SE4 look cheap.

"Forced sale due to family law matters" might apply to me too if I popped over to have a look!

My ideal GTE

…. with all the conviction of an armchair warrior … Cherished 5 (or 5A at a slight pinch) Black interior … not tan anyway … probably … looks not so bad with some pale colours such as white Pale coloured paint but if dark then priced so I can repaint it …. though BRG & tan still seems OK in my eyes G...

Brightwells 28th November

I came second ............ my bid was £4200 but it sold for £4500 + 10% buyers premium. I was advised that the chassis is all very sound. Next bid had to be £4,800. No matter, I am not in a great hurry but this one owner car did look pretty good and unmolested too.

Stainless Steel Door hinge mountings

Yup, having a couple of old Landies I am painfully aware of corrosion between different adjacent metals. I was reading a thread from someone with a Scimitar who has access to facilities to make a great deal in stainless. He has a galv chassis (Middlebridge) so had an awful lot of parts made up inclu...

Barons 11 December 2018 SE4 - £12K!!

Bad grammar is a wonderful thing. 'One lady owner car, absolutely no rust, any test welcome, trade ins willingly accepted, 3 months guarantee'. Oops, did I really write that? Poor English I'm afraid, what I should have written was 'One greedy owner car, absolutely no dust, no test drives, no hagglin...

Is a 5A improved over a 5 ?

Yes, the 5 dash looks more pure than 5a & certainly 6 series. Somewhere in my googling I found mention of a 5b but I guess that is b for bull****?
