Re: Classic cars on the road

"My" mechanic's shop with a Fiat, two Alfa Romeos and an MGB underway. There are several classic cars in my town but it is still unusual to see two on the same drive to work.

Re: JOC Open Day and AGM

I repleid directly to Chris but I'll ost it here, too. I support the idea of an AGM on zoom. This has the tremendous advantage of enabling non-UK members to participate. It would be the best attended AGM ever! As for the Open Day, perhaps members from around the world (time zones permitting) could d...

Interceptor film sighting

I haven't seen the appearance of the Interceptor in "Bottle Shock" mentioned before. The flm stars the incomparable Alan Rickman and is the story of the 1976 wine tasing competition where California wines beat the best French vineyards. The Interceptor appears in the background of shots ea...

A plane with 5 passengers on board -- Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, the Pope and a 10-year-old schoolgirl -- is about to crash and there are only 4 parachutes. Trump says " I need one. I am the smartest man in the US and I need to solve the pandemic!" He takes one parachute a...

Re: What's your 'I can't believe I spent that much buying th

Having the Interceptor engine and transmission rebuilt. I brought the car home from the mechanic and the wife said “I see you picked up the car.” I replied “yes” and that was it.

Re: The History of the forming of the JOC

Funnily enough, I have just received my file from Robeys thanks to Kieron and it had this letter in it and some follow up chat about forming a club between my Interceptor's first owner (Mr Bunker), the factory and Folletts. I like the idea of 'Dinner at the Savoy' Where else? Perhaps Claridges. I i...

Re: 2210/9552

2210/9552

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum but a friend just sent me photos of this Interceptor, here in Huntington, Long Island, New York. It was last registered in 2005 and looks rather neglected. I'll visit the garage and find out what I can about it.
