    Re: Members Map

    Assuming that most members would use the map to find out details of other members in a particular area (usually near to them I imagine), has anyone ever looked into the possibility of providing a...
  2. Re: 1997 Marlin Hunter 2.3 inj ford runs rough at 3000 RPM under load

    Great to hear that you finally have your Hunter running as you always thought it should have, David. It's also good to hear that you're well enough to get out and enjoy the car. Sunday really was a...

    Sticky: Re: MOC South West monthly meet

    I've just uploaded a video of the Thornfalcon Show if anyone cares to take a look. I think I included all the Marlins that were there, albeit that one is hiding away a bit in the image of Apple...

    Re: Marina Brake master cylinder and servo.

    Just before I sold my Roadster, a local garage tried unsuccessfully to get hold of a direct replacement for my Marina master cylinder. In the end, they fitted an MGB one but it was such a time...
  6. Re: Shepton Mallet Classic Car Show Sat/Sun 11/12 Feb 2017

    Yes, it was a good show David, although I'm not sure that my fingers have thawed out even now!!

    It was good to meet up again and great to have a chat with the others at the SW Meet and put some...

    Re: Marlin MK1 Roadster on ebay

    I'm not at all interested in buying this car, but I'm always curious as to how much other members think would need to be spent to end up with a car at least good enough to take to an average car show...

    Re: Marlins for sale in France

    I think it's fair to say that I recognise the first one! It's "Batty" who I sold in November as you can probably see from my Avatar. At that sort of selling price, I'm not surprised that the buyer...

    Re: Prices going up !!!

    As I wasn't able to maintain my Marlin myself and most of my driving was going to and from the garage for the next repair to be done, that's exactly what I did! I've now got myself a 1989 Eunos...

    Re: Stopping non club members posting !

    Just a quick comment on this subject from a slightly different perspective - I've recently sold my Marlin and I have no intention of buying another. I was expecting to soon get a membership renewal...

    I grabbed a sneaky peek at the magazine in a newsagent today and was surprised to see the rear of Batty (my Roadster BAT 790T) featuring prominently in one of the Thornfalcon photos! That was the...

    Re: Marlin Roadster For Sale

    Yes, I agree with what you say, but I've vowed not to spend (waste) any more money on it myself, so unless a buyer comes along, scrapping it in the Spring will be my only option as I don't have the...

    Re: Marlin Roadster For Sale

    Yes, I'm afraid I got to the "final straw that broke the camel's back" stage, which is why the Roadster is up for sale. It costs 720 for the new servo, new brake pads, new speedo cable, a bit of...

    Just a quick update on this one. After a run of less than 20 miles on Sunday, the car encountered the next problem when the pipe to the clutch slave cylinder blew off and I had to be recovered. I...

    Marlin Roadster For Sale

    I thought I would give fellow members a bit of advance notice that I shall be putting my Marlin Roadster (Batty) up for sale in the near future. It would be great if it went on to someone who already...
  19. Re: Is it just me.. or do all Marlin restorers go through this...?

    It's great to hear you're enjoying your Hunter David and good to see the photo of it. I'm afraid I can't sit by and not make a small correction to your posting though! The photo was actually taken at...

    I agree - the side screens look great. If you're thinking of going into production, I'd be quite happy to be one of your customers!!

    So, that could be the reason that the back sits so high then.
