PCP cars are too easy to get.
My son who is 21 has a new Fiesta ST.
How the F he was able to even have one in the first place I do not know. Insurance is the issue for anyone.

I like cars that when you're at the petrol stn filling it up, you can lean against the wing without it buckling with only slight pressure.

I though WD40 was the only thing needed when it came to fore play on a Saturday night, after all a quick squirt of WD40 and she’s lubed up ready to go

But I couldn't push them up too hard or the hinge points would rip going upwards too. It would have failed quickly in banger racing.
You couldn't brake too hard incase your boot went straight through the rusty floor pan.
No. I showed the copper what was wrong in the boot, explained I knew how to fix it and would do so the next day and he was satisfied. What also helped was the drunk geezer on the kerb threatening to 'do' the coppers for picking on innocent motorists. He was going to fight them while I drove off, was hard not to laugh as he could barely stand up.

I once bought a MK 1 and a half Ford Capri. It was logged as a 13000 but somebody had put a 1600 engine in to make it go faster (approx 5-6 mph faster to be honest). The 'A' frame was completely fucked but with the puny engine you wouldn't know. I was working in Cosworth's engine fettling plant. We went and bought a 1300 engine from a scrappy and put in new big ends/ high comp pistons and high lift cams. Added a twin choke Weber Carb and made a warm air box from a biscuit tin and a cat food tin. The engine was now so powerful that the passenger door used to burst open on left hand bends, so a lacky strap acted a s a door lock. I took it for a track day at Castle Coombe and reached clocked speeds of 115 mph. Loved that car and we used to race Golf GTi's in it on the road, poor bastards never stood a chance because up to the one and a half, Capri's had Escort Mexico rear suspension and they were like rocket ships on rails. I later bought a 2.8 that would only clock 125mph and I was very disappointed, especially with the suspension that helped me crash it, head on, into the tyre wall at around a ton.....

It was around 5 foot shorter than it should be, but it was stolen twice the following day. The police caught three guys, one driving, one standing up through the sun roof so they could see where they were going and one in the boot so the wheels would turn to steer.

Those were the days......

I remember them well.
A college mate who played rugby for Rugby and had a Hillman Imp to take us up the pub had fun getting in and out seeing as he was 6'7" tall with huge air on his ead.
But now and then he came to college in his old man's Capri 3 litre GT and scared us witless while laughing his head off going to the pub and back.

A guy in our local which was a bikers pub used to come up in an orange Capri 3.1RS. Rapid in its day.

My big bruvva had a Cortina Mk1 1500GT with 2 stage twin webber carbs fitted. Ported and and a few other mods. It was diamond white with a red flash down the side when the Lotus version had a green flash. His car had black leather bucket seats with mesh in the headrests, oh yeahhhh... and harness seat belts in the front.

We put a 1300 crossflow engine in a 105E Anglia which went quite well but the carb was on the other side to the original engine. Getting the linkage right was difficult.
Me brother worked for a company that built just the engines for turbo TVR:s. He almost died in one of the engine test bed rooms. I think the company was called Broadspeed? In Warks.

Lots of sleepers around those days like the Cortina Savage! Hillman made a fast Hunter in limited numbers as well.

I haven't been to my old local since I was 20, a very long time ago. But I decided last week to revisit soon.
It was rammed full of bikers every night summer or winter. Inside the side door was a pile of piss pot lids that went up to the ceiling. Black sabbath and Led Zep was rarely not playing on the juke box. The pub ceiling was painted gloss black. It was a fukkin great pub!! Happy days.
On a Wednesday night is lay in bed listening to bikes racing between my local pub and the bike meet at The Waterman at Hatton and back again. Pint or two in each pub. It was a different world back then. Most of us carried weapons because that was normal. We did get into some scraps with other non biker groups. But it was a crazy time. Involved a lot of drinking.
No Internet and no mobile phones. No computers or digital.

Talking of old cars and thosr were the days! My Dad had a garage repair business,when I was in my teens/early twenties. The first "real" car I had was a Hillman Imp. Which ended up with a stilletto engine in it, wtih oilcooler, twin carbs,...the lot after I went to the local scrappie to get another engine to replace the one that I had siezed. I only paid 25 quid for the car from a neighbour in the first place. I went to the scarppie and to take the engine out of the "One Over there" point to a couple of Imps. So I did, I didn't know the differencee in imp engines at the time, and as they were so easy to get out I and me mate had it out in no time and when we got home with it we wndered why it had sprouted the extra carb and oilcooler! But we stuck it in anyway. and it went like stink (literally as well, burnt a bit of oil but norhing drastic)! Boy, did it eat Minis for dust and a fair few Escorts, and most of my mates crappy 70's bangers that we drove around in!

I've noticed I now watch repeats of The Sweeney and The Professionals on Freeview just to check the old cars out. Having had several Minis I watch out for them, damn me, there are hundreds of the buggers. Nearly every street scene has a Mini somewhere. Always wanted a Mk3 cortina - just cos how they looked. There's a silly bugger trying to sell one for £35k on ebay at the moment

When I bought my 2.8 V-6 my mate came with me as he knew a thing or two about capris and his best tip was 'stand at one end and look all the way along the car'. The reason for this is because Capris had such long bonnets that pulling out of blind junctions could be a nightmare. 5 foot of bonnet was exposed before the driver could see up the road and side and side impacts were common. Unfortunately mine was what you would call a jinxed car even though it was a straight as a die and immaculate. 3 days after buying it some scrote smashed a window and stole the radio, then I had some woman cut through on a right hand turn and smash the whole side in from the front headlamp to the rear wing 2 weeks later. After this the cold start jet would initiate while driving on a warm and you could watch the fuel guage move faster than the speedo. It eventually ended it days on Castle Coombe racetrack as mentioned. The best part was I had to leave the car on the racetracks car park overnight as the local AA truck was on a call out to Bristol. It was stolen and taken to a nearby disused airfield, and you couldn't make this up, the guy who stole it couldn't get the pepper pot alloys off because of locking wheel nuts went to get some tools, came back and found it gone, so rang the police to report it stolen!

Never did like the Mklll. My cousin used to have them as a company car (he was a service engineer) and they drove like a boat! Unlike the Mkll which was pretty well planted. even the lightweight 1300s which were way underpowered for their size. This was another motor that I scrounged a replacement engine from Dad's hord of insurance write-offs that were scattered around his garage yard! This ended up with a lotus cortina MkI engine mated to a 2000E gearbox (The Mkll was orgininally a 1300 auto!!!!). Dad would never let me jack the bck up and fully "customise" any of my motors! So they all looked bog standard, but they all shifted! As Most of them I swapped a bigger engine into them! Which often took a Traffic Light boy racer by surprise....

When I divorced my first wife I bought a BMW 2002 but unlike most it did not have 'ban the bomb' rear light clusters but the usual square ones, which to the uninitiated looked like a Lada. The thing had an all alloy double overhead cam 2000 cc engine and went like stink. The Gti boys had a good few shocks, especially when the big ends went and it knocked like a shithouse door in a gale. I slick-50's it and it drove like that for over 18 months. I would sit at the lights, a middle aged dude in a (what appeared to be a Lada) with a knocking engine and the smug little fuckers would spin their wheels as the lights changed and then suddenly seeing this crappy old car hauling past them and leaving a trail of dust in their faces. I always called my 'special' motors Q cars after the Q ships of WW1 (well armed ships, disguised as unarmed merchantmen to lure submarines to the surface).

I like sleepers, bikes or cars.
Had a few big Senny's over the years.
Had a Senny 3L 24v and 12v and a GSI 3L Carlton.
Good enough for the old bill when they were new.
Also had a mk2 granada Cosworth, not the gurt bulbous thing that came later on.
I put a power flow stainless exhaust on it improve the sound track.

I worked for Cosworth in Northampotm for a while. They had a few preproduction Cosworth Escort engines left in their stock, so they flogged them off to the staff at about £150 a pop fully fitted! just to clear the shelves. now there was a petrolhead's heaven! I was a production coordinator for a specific project on Daiwoo (or whatever they were called) andthat meant corodinating engine blocks going to the honers, machining and chemical sealers (Cast engine blocks are naturally porous so have to go for chemical/silicone sealing) Some how at least one block would go missing in the triangle, but then mysteriously turn up a few weeks later at one of the factories, but not at the one I had orginally taken it ot. I was basically a glorified Progress chaser! Every so often I would have to go to the engine store to find something and in there were engins of all sorts from Norton Cosworth bike engines to V10 Volvo concept jobbies. They would often have the occassional "clear out" and offer them to the staff or just skip them!! They had a number of cars in the stores as well, including the Jordon F1 racer that Michael Schumaker made his debut in and won! I tried sitting in it, I was a lot lighter and fitter then and still couldn't squeeze in to properly! He was bloody thin that guy!

Never sold any engines when I was there, though they were a bloody good firm to work for. 2 weeks wages as a bonus, 2 weeks before Christmas and 2 weeks before the summer shutdown, tie pins, signed books, magazines, champagne for every Indie car win from Ford, F1 tickets, and aluminium plaques with the Cosworth advert on it and one with a cutaway of the Granada. Took redundancy because I was not popular there, being somebody who stood up to bullies. The management personnel in the main were weak characters who shouted and ranted to get what they wanted and I stood up to them, not just for myself but for all the guys. I chased on wan.. er. Manager back to his office where he locked himself in because he couldn't take the confrontation. I saved a few guys their jobs there. I went because the offer was good for voluntary and the next round would have seen me leave with less than half that, so jump before you're pushed is sometimes the best option.......

I think Cosworth are still a good outfit to work for. I know a guy who used to work there on the F1 cars.
Can't have plus sized drivers in motor racing especially bikez.

It's amazing how many bikers became F1 drivers years ago. bigger saddles meant they could be fatter....

Probably stripping again.... Paint stripping that is as nobody would pay for the other kind (unless it was for him to put his clothes back on).

No! None of that mallarky! So nerr! Anyway have you seen the state of the local fish wives here?

I was burning off the old fence panels and tree cuttings that have overgrown the garden perimeter. But the the old dustbin thingy has collapsed with the heat! Don't last long them incinerators.

We've got a galvanised dustbin style incinerator.
Very good for old paper data destruction.
We burned shitloads of old documents a coupla years ago. I never quite understood how or why our area is not a smoke free zone. But then again only half thus town is a smoke free zone. Why the hell the council doesn't make the whole town smoke free to reduce pollution?
One of our neighbours burns all sorts of building site old timber on his fires even painted stuff. I had a word with EH and they were useless, but that's when I learned about most of the town not being smoke free zone.

Ah, well my nearest neighbour is about 1/4 mile away, so no worries about upsetting him. So I can play at pyros and play music as loud as I like (well when the missus isn't about). But I've spent most of the last two years bringing the house up to a liveable standard, that's before we put our stamp on it. Y'know paint the plaice green wit orange paintwork put bloody kitchen islands in so you have walk around the fucking thing coz it's always in the way. knock all the walls down coz you (She) wants open plan living, the bath placed in the middle of the room for no know reason other than She saw it in Shit Housekeeping and any other fad that these bloody home mags come up with!

Bath upside down on the ceiling is the next fad, just so you know......
