Re: Interceptor Registration Numbers

As you may have noticed from the cover of the latest club mag, HBJ 39 is now on a GT, which is for sale. I suspect that the number will be retained by its current owner. The Interceptor it came from is now registered as 1 HBJ. And are you sure its XWP 433N and not M? WHAT IS THE LATEST CLUB MAG I H...

Re: Jaguar XJR (X300 6 cy) prices vs condition on the contin

A friend had one a few years ago that he had to scrap due to rust underneath, it looked perfect on top apart from stone chips but underneath the mounts for the rear axle were all moving due to corrosion. He did get a quote to have it repaired but it was going to cost more than it was worth. In the ...

The near side inner sill also needed re plating And floor pans re undersealing so that was done also. I’m pleased to say t...

Re: MY MK 2 WITH THE ORIGINAL RIMS BACK ON THE CAR !

Congratulations. That's a really desirable, classy looking car - even with the hopefully minor paint defects. Lovely panel gaps too. I often wonder what possesses owners to bling their car up, put on an ill-fitting louvred bonnet in place of the serviceable original etc etc - more so now I've seen ...

Re: Interceptor bodyshell/chassis built from scratch

He did offer to deliver it for that money Stephen too, but, Although I know it is a lot of work to make I felt it was un-affordable for me, I wouldn't have any problem driving there though and I had already thought of that too. Love a road trip in a Transit :P Grant not like you to move that far fr...

Re: Interceptor bodyshell/chassis built from scratch

Yes.. that's for sure Steve http://vapepit.net/public/style_emoticons/default/nod.gif As clever as this man is, and he is, I take my hat off to him, but, It is an awful lot of work to remake the chassis and to be honest the chassis is the only part that really doesn't rot, it is magnificent what he...

Re: MY MK 2 WITH THE ORIGINAL RIMS BACK ON THE CAR !

Good afternoon from Los Angeles ! Thank you for all your kind comments. The tires on the car are Pirelli 215 x 70 15, I wanted a bigger tire, the other 60 inch tires were a little to small to fill the wheel well. The cost of converting back to the original rims was around two thousand dollars, refu...

Re: Do You Subject Your Car to an MoT?

Any car that arrives filthy dirty with a pile of rubbish in the footwells is obviously not cared for and if the owner does not care about the appearance he probably does care about the maintenance, I suspect he would look over that car differently to the one that comes in clean. Steve I've always w...
