You certainly don't see many on the roads these days as the newest Coupes are now 21 years old ooo. I've had my Coupe about 4 months now & I had a guy in my local petrol station come up to me & say how much he liked mine, which was jolly kind of him thumb.

Today I changed oil and filter on my daily, a wee Corsa D, good enough for my needs £30 yearly tax. I got into the habit of changing my oil and filter every six months, when I was working as a carer, obviously more miles, and then there was quite a lot of start stop, all of which can be hard on the vehicle. I keep a note of my dates and mileage in a wee old diary and the miles I’ve done since the last change…….just over a thousand……. shocked

My bike is a hybrid, good enough for me, it’s all alloy so light enough. I bought it second hand from somebody who rode it a couple of times then stored it in bedroom, they were moving away to Glasgow and wanted rid, I practically stole it, brand new it looked not a mark on it. I played the old man routine and said I’ve only managed to save £180, asking price was £200, even at that price it was a bargain. Once the twenty pound notes were in view, I had my new bike.

To be fair up here in the sticks there are not many who don’t acknowledge you, females will always wave and say hi, I think they feel sorry for me, an old geezer on a bike huffing away… hippy When I come to think about it, the flashier the bike and outfit, it’s less likely a friendly gesture ensues. rolleyes None of this puts me off though. I do enjoy a trip on the bike in the countryside, there are a few stopping off places to see and grab a coffee and a goodie. Deserted roads for miles at times, gives me thinking time and keeping fit as well.. yipee

When I started biking there were loads of new ideas floating around; Wankel, turbo, inline sixes,even a diesel. You could buy a turbo and bolt it on to your 4cyl Jap with the inevitable consequences to your unmodified engine internals, but the big 4 over come that by making their own versions. Lag was an issue but nowadays that can almost be eliminated so why no turbo bikes? Norton revised the rotary a few years ago to some good effect but it doesn't seem to have caught on. I believe Enfild India made the first (and last) diesel but with modern diesels and turbos I should think it could be made to work.
How about a 2 stroke turbo? Imagine a quarter mile on that!

Have had Lancaster Ins on and off for 30yrs.....recently over the last few year's my experience has not been good at all with regard to admin on NCD (they lose or remove it everytime), fees for private plates (didnt pay) and constant spamming via SMS, call and email at renewal time. This was for both of my MGs.....I would not use them.

Well, when you get standardised battery cells with standardised fastenings that can be replaced by a robot...

The good thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from...

2 yellows spotted by Chepstow racecourse on the weekend.

One driving away from the racecourse and a gorgeous plus in the carpark.

Sadly, I was in the panda so my waving and flashing at the first one probably had them overly confused.

Really really strange to see 2 in different locations in the space of 1 minute.

I think the worrying starts when the rattle stops, you've either gone deaf or stopped!

On Val's Fiat 500L, we've managed to smash the lens of one of the fog lamps.

Lamp replacement, requires full bumper off for access.

Fiat lamp is about £70.00

Although the car looks very good, it is 9 years old, and I'm thinking of just replacing the lens, by glueing over the top.

Any comments or advice please.

Paul

Porto P540xxx on A697 heading towards Carfraemill 1500hrs today. I was parked on the roadside in the MGTF and gave a wave. The driver waved backed but was probably thinking 'a wannabe coupe owner but if it keeps him happy I'll wave back' laugh

Pete- Good to see you at the last one but the June meeting coincides with our daughter's wedding so we won't be there. Hopefully in August and any other event.

Doing some raking around under the piano and unearthing rather more spare coupé parts than I realised I had laugh
One of these was a handbook and Clarion radio instruction book for a red L.E., reg. as above. Thought about returning them to the original owner who appeared to have bought it from Highfine Ltd in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, but it's been declared SORN, with the MoT expiring in March 2016.

Ring any bells?

Came in the post today fitted it in 10 minutes .I hesitated from buying on as i don't want a turbo car 20VT with on and off power delivery . My 16 VT is a bit laggy I am impressed with it . The car seems to have more low down get up and go . I have a boost gauge fitted and just put a new clutch in the car . Only driven the car up and down the road so far . Well worth the money .
