  1. Crikey!!..….I don't suppose there was much of that going on 66 years ago at a speed of 124.9mph
  2. Good grief! I have just noticed that the chap in the back of the 2.5 emoji ……………..is he really mooning?
  3. Happy Birthday MCV 575!! I do enjoy a good celebratory emoji! I know this looks more like a 2.5PI estate than a Sidescreen TR, but I think it was a better choice than which looks to be going rather slowly. Ben had the privilege of seeing MCV 575 at Glen's establishment last year when he went to collect a new fuel tank and came home with some great pictures of this wonderful car.
  4. And I found this one too.....this is me aged 18 collecting my first car!
  5. Thanks for the ideas, everyone! I've photographed the photographs, so here goes..... remember that these were taken 13 years ago!
  6. That would be fabulous! Thank you very much!! Vicky x
  7. Thanks for the reply, that looks very promising! Excitement has just gone up another notch!!
  8. When we moved from Suffolk to the New Forest 13 years go, we gave our spitfire 1500 to our neighbouring farmer, who had ideas of doing it up (just like we had!). We have just had said farmer to stay, and I asked after the spitfire. It turns out that he has never got round to doing anything with it (just like we hadn't!!), so I asked him if he would like me to get rid of it for him. The end result is, that I am going to collect it on a trailer and bring it down here. The last time I saw it was when Ben drove it round to the farm, so it was a runner; sound but starting to get tatty. I've just found some old photos of it from the time it went to the farm, and it really didn't look too bad. It has been dry stored in the back of his insulated barn, so whilst the rust worm has probably had a good munch, hopefully it hasn't bred too much and gone completely rampant! I'm now feeling very excited about getting a project and have always fancied the Vincent hurricane body, but does anyone here know whether they are still available? If they are, I think (hope) I may have the perfect donor car! Of course, it may be that the original panels are easily repairable and it would be silly to do a body swap. Plan A is to strip the whole car down and go through everything thoroughly, so hints and tips from those of you who have done such a project would be gratefully received. Is there anything that you didn't do which with hindsight you wish you had done? Now is also the sensible time to think about any modifications/improvements to make it an enjoyable and safe road car, so again, what would be a good idea? Plan B, (which is very boring and not my preferred option) is I will take one look at it and think 'sh*t.....this is way beyond me!' and I will just get rid of it as it is. So, as I start dreaming...………. I mean planning, my final question is, if you were in my position, what would you choose to do to it? Vicky. x
  9. Hello Dave, Welcome to the sunny side! There are lots of friendly and knowledgeable people on here. Vicky x
  10. Crikey, Nick! That snow must have come down quickly......you haven't even got out of the gate before your bike ground to a halt! We've got about the same in the New Forest, the trees are beautiful, like a winter wonderland. I hope Don is hibernating from all that cold.....send us a post, Don! xxxxxxxxxxxx
