10 unfairly forgotten cars in a Portuguese magazine

Also I didn't know the GTE chassis benefitted from development by Formula 1 experts ... Chris, you need to read up on the story of the GTE's chassis designer and Reliant Chief Engineer, John Crosthwaite, who had F1 and Indy 500 experience with people like Lotus, BRM, and Mickey Thompson. He has his...

An alarmclock, a lemon-squeezer, a Honda S800 (circa 1957) and a CDI. Guess which is the hardest to find in France?
I would imagine a "a Honda S800 (circa 1957) " is pretty hard to find everywhere! :lol:

Still think 40+ year old cars need no inspection then?
Does anyone *really* think it's a good idea? (apart from the politicians implementing it?)

trunnions 79 6a

I shall certainly be at Tangmere on Sunday - I imagine early on I'll be a bit busy trying to get everyone into the show, hopefully I'll get a bit of free time later for a bit of a poke around! :shock:

trunnions 79 6a

As already said, you can't "just fit manual trunnions to a PAS car", (at least not without completely rebuildiing the suspension to suit, or resorting to potentially damaging amounts of violence) - it should be quite easy to check which way round the top wishbones are to give you an idea. I'd be inc...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Last Tuesday was the Goodwood club social evening, and the weather was pretty grim, so it was good to see this on the car park, being used regardless: :D

MOT changes

It occurred to me today whilst out in the stiletto........so I decide to get an mot to be safe, but it fails......but its mot exempt?! Do I go back with it fixed? If not it's classed as not roadworthy, how about I fix it and don't go back for a retest? It's now roadworthy but without the ticket? It...

Headlight question?....

7 inch round headlamps are a pretty standard commodity, which don't tend to be model-specific, unlike modern headlights

Headlight question?....

You can buy plastic "nests" which are obviously much less corrosion-prone. (not totally, as the chrome rings are still chromed steel, but at least it's a step in the right direction :) )

Power steering pumps

In my experience, anyway, the pumps are very reliable - the only problems I've had have been a couple of leaks due to over-enthusiastic belt tensioning, or the o-ring seals hardening and squashing. Unless you've got definite reason to suspect the pump, I wouldn't rush to point the finger at it witho...

MOT category

Following-on from my previous note, if you want a fix of vintage Bentleys (as well as other interesting machinery) then the Benjafield's Sprint is worth keeping a lookout for. I set up an album on Flickr for the 2016 event, which can be seen on this link :)
