Another mini group picnic run next Wednesday over here in Glos, / W. Mids. We've had a few over the last month or so. Enjoyed yesterday's trip, but after 9 hours over two sessions in the MINI I felt rather stiff earlier!
Although too late to get an advanced ticket - I hope to get one on the door as it were for Sunday. Weather looks good. If I get in I shall hope to be at the outside of Redgate curve at noon(ish) if anyone wants to meet up & say hello.
We have the usual taxi run from Odiham to Salisbury every day still.
Yesterday he obviously forgot to charge his phone and did not have Waze because he came around three times and dropped right down to find the B3400, noisy things Chinooks and when low the birds and cats don't know which way to look.
Be creative. You could hang it on the garage wall, attach a few things to it such as badges, plaques, photos. Being more creative, it could be used in the house. Kitchen to hang pots? Garden ornament? Make cloth/leather pockets to turn it into a magazine rack? Something children could play with? Let your imagination free!
You are absolutely right, self-interest, bias and perception makes for odd statistics. Thats without the numbers for the sales in China being taken into account in many cases. The numbers sold there are huge on there own.
I'm trying to see how Howard sees the Duratec as "microchip free"? Fuel injection came in in the last 3'ish years of the CVH 4/4.
I had a 1993 4/4 with the 1.6 cvh efi engine as used in Fiesta/ Escorts. I remember having a Draper diagnostic with a 3pin plug for it, never actually needed but they were hard to find so bought it. Sold it when I changed the Morgan. Morgan had to modify the electrics to match the needs of the emerging electronic systems, modifying the maps and data collection if needed to run without a lot of the manufacturer non fitted systems. Modern cars monitor everything and can react to missing signals.
I agree. Having been burned for £9m by the F1 Ebbw Vale circuit I wouldn’t want more losses for a speculative project from a company that appear to have creative press releases of information that looks a bit contrived. It is a market that existing players are fighting keenly so unless they can offer a significantly attractive vehicle how can it break into the present mix?
