  1. I wonder if they are recording what they find for the future?
  2. I quite like the look of it and it seems it will be more manoeuverable too.
  3. Have you read the proposal? Have you filled in the biased consultation? IMO it's horrific.
  4. You say many wise things, but the bit about travellers is the best yet. Having had a few run ins with them I couldn't agree more. See the reports today about their attitude to covid and the massive input of help given to a group of them by the local authority.
  5. We had a wheel come off a D1000 once and go through a shop doorway. no one was hurt thank goodness.
  6. Yes, deffo in the Corsair. I had a dark blue one with a straight engine and a metallic blue one with a V4. The V4 was pretty fast for the time. I really liked the Corsair. I had every mark of Zodiac too and loved the great barge MK4 with a 3litre V6 in. Like an American Limo.
  7. I see Iran launched a load of missiles at the mock us ship as well as showing off countless drones and gun boats.
  8. Nah, I wrecked a two door! I'm talking about 25 years ago or thereabouts. It's hard to re-call the names and vehicles.
  9. Yup, we'll be there later on this week, oh yes, looking forward to it.
  10. proper Landies didn't have a v6 as standard.it was a retro fit. I always prefered a Perkins 4203. Massive torque.
  11. hello there! I had Vitaras, Shoguns, Patrol , bob tail rangie and a disco when I was in the club. Oh yes, and a ww2 Willys Jeep.
  12. We didn't feel the food was very good at lunchtimes.
  13. 1.6, 2.8 and the original 3litre I think.
  14. But he's Green! All sorts of impractical, expensive impositions that won't have any benefit to us or the greater global situation except to cost us more and cause us more interference in our way of life. Yes I do re-cycle, limit my journeys, grow my own vegetables and many other practical ways of trying to live a sustainable life!
  15. I knew a chap in Ramsey who had a red Landie with ford v6 in. Went very well and a good driver too.
  16. You say many wise things, but the bit about travellers is the best yet. Having had a few run ins with them I couldn't agree more. See the reports today about their attitude to covid and the massive input of help given to a group of them by the local authority.
  17. I recall way, way back, sometime in the sixties when there was some fuel crisis and a friend had a 3 litre capri, quite thirsty and we were getting neurotic about future fuel supplies. He said he didn't give a shit and fuel would last him out. He was proved right, he's still alive and there is still plenty of fuel.
  18. Jeez they make things even more complex than they do here! Didn't think that was possible.
  19. I read somewhere that short journeys with pollution equipment functional, cause more pollution than similar journeys with a pre pollution control car. I understand that is why they started putting heater elements in CO sensors. Wonder what the situation is now?
  20. All my musical peers are going , Hope my end isn't nigh.
  21. You mean theres some lanes with 30 limits. All the ones round here have no speed limit.it's crazy.
