Re: Shame! Shame! Shame!

I’ve Seen it happening more with volvos of late; It’s used to be the 340/360’s stripped for “drifting” but I also very recently saw a saffron c70 t5 coupe that had been started as a “track car” before “moving on to a new project”. Essentially, he’d binned all the rather lovely leather interior, bar...

Re: Get a load of this! period dealership photos 1988

My first 480 was sold by them although I bought it from a used car lot. It still had the Harrats stickers on the glass and reg plates.

Re: 480 for Sale

What a b*mmer it did not look too bad in the pics. As has been said the pool car idea is a good one though. If we keep our eyes peeled we may find one that's fit for the role. Here's hoping everyone stays safe and well the next few months.

Re: 480 for Sale

If Sylvia, Al and Jeff think it's worth saving then count me in for a donation. Martins pool car idea is great and there will be someone who can make use of it. Let's hope if it's a runner that the dvla do not throw a spanner in the works when it comes to registering it!

Re: The waterfalls mini meet

Glad you are ok Martin, your phone message very garbled (dales reception!). Good to meet up with you all and a fun drive thru the dales. Fingers crossed that Yorkie gets back to Hull on his space saver after his coming together with a rock. We must do it again covid 19 permitting. Cheers Norman

Re: Flaming urgent

Is this your one by any chance Norm? :D https://i.imgur.com/K3AYJxo.jpg https://i.imgur.com/1LMh2qp.jpg Yes mate, hopefully Mark will fettle it in time for mini meet. When I dropped it off two weeks ago for MOT I called in at yours after seeing your 480 on the drive. Did you get it thru the test?

Re: Flaming urgent

Thanks James, 3345235 and 3344880 are the part numbers I have been given the originals were melted off. I have tried a few sources but no luck so far. Am hoping Fraser may be able to help otherwise I am thinking a trip to your neck of the woods (Lakes) is an option.
