  1. And if you were referring to me, I claim the same excuse as Blanco except I wasn't always young...
  2. Wow! It even beats the Fiesta? I am impressed by your fidelity... Perhaps my cars reflect my character and explain why I never got married!
  3. Most of these were owned by me, but some I was extensively involved with (owned by a partner for example). The list is roughly in order but some overlapped... I know it's not all 4x4, but it kind of illustrates the path to where I am now with two Discos 1963: NSU Quickly moped - obtained with a seized engine but came with a spare. Change piston and barrel by myself at age 11yrs... Crashed on very first ride minutes after getting it running 1968: Mini (1959, it was knackered! Dad bought it for me to cut my teeth on before my 17th birthday - full engine/clutch rebuild done and mucho bondo bodywork followed... Passed my test in it and then they tightened the MoT and it was scrapped) 1973: Royal Enfield 250 Crusader 1974: Triumph Bonneville 650 (1968 cafe racer) 1976: Kawasaki KZ750 1977: Ford Escort 1100 Mk1 (decided to settle down and be sensible...) Norton Commando Mk3 (stuff being sensible!) Land Rover Series 1 80" with S2 NA diesel (45mph flat out) Land Rover IIA 109" petrol (not mine but we drove to India in this one in 1978) Honda C70 (fitted bicyle luggage and toured Scotland on this) Honda 250 Austin Cambridge automatic 1981: Triumph Daytona 500 1982: Moto Guzzi SP1000 (rode to Egypt on this one - two up in 1983) Ford Fiesta 1100 Mk1 Honda 400/4 Honda 550/4 Jaguar XJ6 (used nearly as much oil as petrol) Renault 4 (no ignition switch, trim, or rear seat, and had carboard boxes for rear wheel arches) Austin Metro (sensible again) Saab 900 Ford Sierra Estate For Sierra Saphire For a while I worked in a scrap yard and picked up and ran a few PoS cars I can't remember... Ford Escort 1100 Mk1 van Ford Cortina Mk 2 Fiat Panda 4x4 1993: Austin Montego 1600 (took Dad on his "50 years on European tour" in this one) Vauxhall Cavalier 1999: Honda CBR600FX (I still have it) 2003: Range Rover Vogue 1990 3.9 (converted to off-road pickup, only sold it last year) BMW 3 Series 1600 Citroen Xantia Peugeot 504 Nissan Micra (great engine but turned out to be a cut & shut abortion - scrapped) Discovery 200TDI 1996 2012: Skoda Octavia VRS Estate (2003, Ex-police. Very fast - possibly chipped. Put 110,000 miles on it with absolute minimal maintenance... Anyone want it for free? It still runs but wouldn't pass an MoT) 2015: BMW R1200R LC 2017: Discovery TD5 (2003) 2018: Discovery 4 (2013)
  4. Now this one I DO fancy - but am not going to bid on it so thought I would put it on here in case anyone likes it... Galvanised chassis and bulkhead... Nice https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-Series-3-1974-2-25-petrol-galvanised-chassis-bulkhead-tax-mot-exempt/133118444512
  5. That's sad... Mine are better than any diary or photo, especially the smudges and finger prints... They take me right back
  6. I used to shoot pistol until HMGovt took them away.
  7. The rigid pipes were replaced in copper (pure copper over here, 'Cunifer' doesn't make it over the water?) I read somewhere that copper work hardens with vibrations so Cunifer is preferred. Not sure if there is any truth in this...
  8. I know this is the "The EBay Christ I fancy that 4x4 + its cheap thread" , but is there a "The EBay Christ I fancy that 4x4 but its flipping expensive thread" ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1995-LAND-ROVER-101-FORWARD-CONTROL/113800745720?hash=item1a7f0d92f8:g:NeAAAOSwoI5dFldZ Have I missed something or are the just extracting the urine?
  9. A steel brake pipe earlier today... Just wondering... are the fuel pipes steel too? Maybe I should just replace everything...
  10. I found more corrosion on the abs down pipes. I cut one and started to cut another before I realised that the whole triplet can be wiggled out as a unit if you de-rivet the bottom bracket under the wing...
  11. My avatar went missing, but I blamed myself (as I always do) for doing something stoopid
  12. OOOOh Matron! They are lovely!
  13. Try these: https://www.tena.co.uk/men/?ppc=0&gclid=CjwKCAjw36DpBRAYEiwAmVVDMOIyFUMGNngCb45wMdMsKgygf7cJc0VIcfIOVKDV3SK1jRuE5YumwBoCAkEQAvD_BwE
  14. That's the D1 and RRC - they have a little slot at the front of the gutter that pours it right into the open window... Now don't get me started on the D2 sunroof...
