  1. DUH ! I should have had a closer look at the car park to know you weren't over here when you took the pic ! Oh, and I knew because I used to be a Yank ! ( still am, technically ) Very desirable black number plate, indicates the car probably spent its life in California, contributing to its excellent condition...
  2. Skoda Octavia 4x4 estate is a pretty nice package, and great value for money...lots of near-new demo cars out there for sub-£20K. I am considering one for my next company car, to replace my 54 plate Subaru Outback with intergalactic mileage. I would love another Subie, but they are so overpriced...and so damned ugly now, as well.

    How ? A stunt team couldn't place a car so precisely in a hole like that...and at typical London speeds ? Puzzled in Herefordshire.
  4. Car MOT'd, taxed and back on the road now, just need a good meet to go to. Had another thought...anyone else on here go to Shelsley Walsh for the hillclimbs ? They are always good fun, and the car park is like a car show, usually...Just a thought.
  5. Looks like a 1956 Ford...Park Lane, perhaps ? Nice looking car...what the hell is it doing over here, I wonder ?!?
  6. Just renewed my membership yesterday...I had lapsed for a few years. Lots of discount schemes with the club too, on oils, tyres, etc.
  7. Saw you this afternoon in Hereford @ 4:45pm...I was sitting at traffic lights next to KFC, leaving the hospital in a dk green KA, you cruised across the intersection directly in front of me...unmistakable ! Nice car.
  8. Better get my carburetors back on then...
  9. How does the 2.0TS perform vs. the V6 in a car of this size ? Does the TS have sufficient poke ? It looks a tremendous bargain, and also appears to have been very well-kept by current owner.

    I'll be burned at the stake for saying so, but I prefer the 'donor' 8C.

    Doing a 'rally' on Oct 13, sponsored by Hilltop Minis, in aid of Afghan Heroes. That should be fun...2 other S2 Spiders coming along, if all goes to plan. I want to get in as many trips as possible before my road tax runs out end of October ! Cotswolds are always nice...there is a hillclimb event at Prescott on Oct 6, in conjunction with the IAMC.
  12. Definition of FUBAR: See above.
  13. Man, it looks even WORSE in these pics. You are one lucky guy to have walked away with nothing more than a chinese burn... Interesting forensics on this accident...In a very similar fashion, when my engine was rebuilt, the highly respected specialist who did the work had removed the centre link from the front suspension to make motor removal/installation easier. When car was returned, he had left off the nuts from the end links. The centre link fell off just as I pulled into a parking space at my destination, following a 100 mile motorway journey... Though I'm not religious on the whole, I'm a big believer in 'guardian angels'. Metal and plastic indeed...there are always more out there, if you are intent on getting another.

    It would be great to get in a few more runs before the weather turns rotten...I know 2 other chaps also with S2 Spiders who would come along.
