Beware the car thieves

I was an insurance claims inspector until recently and virtually all household break ins were for cash, gold, jewelry and car keys! The burglars don't even bother with electrical goods these days as they're so cheap to buy and difficult to sell on! Been to plenty of burglaries where the thieves have...

Beware the car thieves

Went to inspect an insurance claim last year where property was damaged when a masked gang forced their way into a house and barricaded the family into the dining room whilst they stole the husband's Audi R8!

Beware the car thieves

My Nissan 300ZX back in the 1990s just had a simple kill switch hidden in the cabin...It was very effective! A determined professional thief will always take your car one way or another though! My wife's boss had an Escort Cosworth kept in an alarmed locked garage with immobilizer and tracker fitted...

Beware the car thieves

You can get trackers and engine kill switches operated by an app on your phone now.
On your Scimitar just remove the rotor arm to put off the amateur thieves!

Beware the car thieves

When I had a newish sports car I had an anti hijack system fitted so that the engine would cut out a minute or so down the road!
The thief wouldn't have got far!

Tachometer issue...

I've checked the earth and that seems ok.The bulb that illuminates the rev counter won't work if the earth is disconnected, but works ok when reconnected.
Which wire from the coil do I need to look at?

Tachometer issue...

Hi
My tachometer has started to stop working on an intermittent basis!
It may not be working at the start of a journey and then start working or vice versa!
What's the likely cause?

Cheers

Automatic box removal?..

Silly question here!...

....When the autobox is removed from the car does it come away with the selector lever or does that remain in the car and is disconnected at the gearbox? :?

Daily Driver

Looks nice!...Auto as well, which from my experience make it a much more relaxed daily driver! Wheels look a bit too modern and an older style deeper dish wheel would probably be more in keeping. Seeing those nicely painted rocker covers reminds me that I must get mine refurbished to match my repain...

Daily Driver

Since giving up a company car earlier in the year I've been using my SE6a as a daily car, but it's automatic with power steering and I can drive it relaxed, with my elbow hanging out of the window.... ....My previous Scimitar was manual with manual steering and wasn't much fun around town! I do tend...

SE5 (Granada engined)..slight oil leak & air filter anomaly!

My se6 had a Mann air filter in the housing and I just sourced the same item from eBay for less than £10, as it seemed to fit fine!

Replacement heater....

You should be so lucky only breathing in rust and foam, today I got to clearing out my matrix.....wondered where the rat that was eating through the wiring had gone! I should be taking photos but afraid that nobody else will sit in the car once done. I bought a low mileage RX8 to run around in unti...
