Re: EA / Factory cars.

Guys you forgot my car which I had previously given a short history about in the members cars section, originally TEA 700L now registered as DBY 921M. I think there is a full list of all the factory registered interceptors in Richard Calvers book.

Hi, Attached is a photograph of the underside of the drivers side dashboard, next to the trip milage reset knob is another similar sized black plastic covered knob. I can find no reference to what this should do in either the owners handbook manual or in Richard Calvers book. Is this present on any ...

Re: TEA 700L aka DBY 921M

Thank you for that information Chris I will look into the matter on the DVLA website and see if I can get the car registered under the original registration.

TEA 700L aka DBY 921M

Hi, I just found out some very interesting information about my Jensen interceptor chassis number 136/8750 registration number DBY 921M. Earlier this week I contacted Martin Robey for the detailed build information on my car based on the chassis number. I spoke to Keith who was very helpful and phot...

Re: I've had better days out. Check your nuts!

I used to own a Lotus Elan 2+2 which had central wheel spinners to attach the wheel to a spline. No matter how hard I hit the spinner on one of the rear wheels to tighten it up it frequently came loose and I got this terrible vibration which allowed me to stop in time and tighten it up again.
