    Re: Jrr 929 d

    £8K is a ridiculous amount of money. Who is quoting for the rebuild? Aston Martin?

    Now, I'm most probably going to upset all the "purist's" here and to those well so be it, but you have to...

    Now its only a personal thing..... but I always find the Berli's a tad unresolved around the design of the windscreen and windows. Now, before anyone leaps at me, I'm aware that these were designed...

    Re: 1984 Alfa Romeo 8c inspired For Sale

    Hmmm, I must have a good solid miserly bone somewhere as I thought nice enough car but £26,350 is a massive price for a car that's still a Marlin roadster underneath. Yes, someone has put effort and...

    Re: Sportster for sale

    Obviously a fair weather car, hence the lack of windscreen wipers. Other than that a nice looking car.

    Re: Three wheeler

    My mantra regarding three wheel transport has always been:

    Two wheels at front (Morgan, Polaris Slingshot etc) = good
