Re: 1976 Jensen GT in Canada

Nice looking car. Local to me too, which is strange. Never been many of those around here.

Re: Tesla / Electric Vehicles

I’ve got a bunch on Tesla driving experience, even though I have yet to own one. I’ve probably done about 5000 km behind the wheel, and visited numerous Superchargers and other chargers along the way. I don’t really have an ace to grind either way, but I am an enthusiast driver, and I love driving c...

Re: use of the comma raises it's head again

So would Keith kindly explain the Oxford Comma... As I said Colin, it's open to interpretation (which should not be the case when discussion English language punctuation, as it should be following strict rules) but there it is. Let's look at an example sentence: I was polishing my Jensens, V8s and ...

Re: Steve McQueens Mustang

John Sleath had one of the newer ones that made big power, but reckoned the road noise, from the tyres, made it very hard work on long trips. It’s actually very good on the highway. I’ve done almost 40,000 km in mine in 6 months, including very many long highway hauls, and it’s a fantastic highway,...

Re: Steve McQueens Mustang

Wow, as much as it would be nice to own a car like that if I was buying a Mustang I think I would prefer this https://www.ford.co.uk/cars/mustang/models-specs/mustang-bullitt" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; 500hp and I am sure it would be great fun and for £46k. Steve I hav...

Re: Heartbroken! Too Tall for an Inteceptor

I think Martin has made an excellent point. I had the webbing and foam replaced in my front seats earlier this year. And I'm thrilled with them. But if I were over 6 feet tall I might not be so enthusiastic. I have far less head room and leg room between the seat and large original steering wheel t...

Re: Heartbroken! Too Tall for an Inteceptor

my mate big chris is 6ft 9 had a interceptor 3 fitted in it no problem his legs were either side the steering wheel but I never heard him complain about it, Not complaining, and actually being comfortable, are very different things. The Interceptor is NOT a big car inside. My daily driver Mustang B...

Re: Heartbroken! Too Tall for an Inteceptor

I think it would also be worth trying a mark 1 or 2, if you can find one in Canada. They don't have the stick out bit at the top of the door panel. It's probably my imagination but does the seat go back further in a mark 1 / 2? The shape of the earlier rear seats does allow more room. As Barrie say...

Re: Heartbroken! Too Tall for an Inteceptor

Hi CF! (You don't mind if I call you CF?) I had the same thing being 2m tall. I could get in but it was a bit of a squeeze and whilst there was some further adjustment which involved welding to make my legs comfortable (that's welding the seats, not my legs) I would then have an uncomfortable stret...

Re: Heartbroken! Too Tall for an Inteceptor

This gentleman is at least 6' 5" tall, maybe 6' 6", I will not comment on his weight as I don't know but as you see he has an Interceptor and has driven it on very long continental European trips. This picture was taken at the end of the Turin 2016 run and since then he's also done the Ge...

Re: Heartbroken! Too Tall for an Inteceptor

Thanks Andrew. Please note, I didn’t actual say I wouldn’t get one. Just that I had to rethink things a bit. :) You can actually drive a DB7? I tried one once, and thought it was pretty hopeless. Drop dead gorgeous car though. I was wondering about putting spacers under the front of the seat, to add...

Heartbroken! Too Tall for an Inteceptor

Had a heartbreaking day recently. For the first time, I tried an Interceptor on for size, and discovered I don't fit. I'm a big, tall guy. 6'4 and about 16 stone. I've learned from past experience that there are a lot of cars I don't fit into. Being a larger GT, rather then a small sports car, and h...

Re: What if the 1972 Jensen Interceptor was made in 2019?

If it were, it would be some horrible, cookie cutter, electric SUV.
