Rather good that they have grasped the nettle. I'd be impressed if I was an owner.

the seller has dropped a little to 58K€
I proposed a ceiling of 53K€
I'm waiting for the answer
At the same time, I have another proposal for a 2008 Roadster, 50,000 km, rifle grey, cartier red mohair interior and soft top, wooden dashboard and steering wheel. The price is interesting, I'm waiting for details on this model ....

I like them all but this was so ahead of it's time and the Aston Green one looks sublime.

Had I the available cash and the certainty that MMC will still be around for at least the next ten years to support the car I would have one in a heartbeat, but that last part I feel is getting a little concerning following their recent history, that and Simon no longer available as a brilliant supporting engineer for the Aero chassis would need a lot of thought I feel before any investment.
Personal view as always.

Spencer, interesting departure from your previous images. really nice tone too - do you use a specific LR preset or custom setting? Any clues on what it contains?

I had a wind deflector fitted behind the seats, I sold it in the end for £50, the mesh material started to fray and fall apart, they are quite delicate.

Of course those interested in a T70 are more likely to be inbterested in an McLaren M8 from the same era, rather than a modern McLaren. But we arent talking of a T70 but of a pretty kit car imitation. So the argument is still valid.On the one hand you have a kit car and on the other you have the product of an F1 manufacturer in carbon fibre with a racing engine and all the facilities and civilities you might want in a daily user.

I have driven a couple of modern McLarens - they really are something special. But I accept that not everyone thinks the same way. Morgan are a tribute to that!

I am going to change my front springs this year on the 2002 Plus8.
The current set up is fine but the main springs are looking”well used” so I would like to change them. New spring with bearing as minimum.
Two areas of debate in my mind.
1. Discernible improvement in suspension feel/performance?
2. Rebound spring fit. I have heard that a previously good fit was lost after an SSL upgrade. By that I mean a gap at the top of the spring where it was previously a good fit as just hand turnable as recommended for standard setting.
The parts cost difference is enough to question the value of any improvement. It will be DIY fitting.
I don’t mind an initial set up and later adjustments after bedding in.

One of the main benefits of the SSL RS kit is that suspension control can be set and maintained at optimum (zero static pre-load on rebound spring) in turn providing the optimum suspension travel control and roll resistance within the limits of sliding axle suspension. This is achieved by the adjustable collars on main spring. Consequently your concerns regarding rebound spring fit are unfounded, accepting that adjustments have to be made on fitting as per instructions, and checked later after settling. Anyone who suggests otherwise misunderstands the principles of the kit.

BTW you do not need to use the car in competition to immediately appreciate the improvement, just find a bumpy poorly surfaced road. If you don't have any in Wales we can offer untold opportunities in Norfolk innocent

It's made by Yuasa. The guy at batteries Plus Store said this was a deluxe battery not offered by them. I was able to buy at a local interstate store for $165 in the US.

My first engine traveled more than 100,000 km and I never had a problem with oil deposits and oil leaks, to travel 100,000 km I only had camshaft with needle bearing and cylinder head gasket of both cylinders to be replaced for the engine, I reassure I had many other problems.

I had the same experience, applied for my geriatric licence on line and the new one arrived 10 days later.

Had the same experience when we moved house last year when we had to change the address on my licence, new one arrived in just over a week.

Drove to Berrybrook for them to change the cam belts and tensioners
They also renewed the water pump.
(My 4/4 is a ‘black top’ 1.8 Zetec).

In addition they pressure tested the cooling system, to find the source of Stanley’ recent mild incontinence!
Fortunately all the cooling system checked out and the source of the dribble was located to one of the heater hoses.
(I had spent quite a bit of time trying to unsuccessfully isolate the problem.)

Interesting contrast of stock vehicles in the dealership.
They have a nice range of pre-CX models and a small number of eye wateringly expensive CXs (£100k+ Plus Six!).

Shame it pi**ed down on the way home.

Home now, enjoying tea and Hob Nobs.

4/4 - Stanley

If any company if that era had grasped the corrosion nettle, they would be stand out classics today.

A dealer friend had two E Types in 1978. Both F platers, so coming up for ten years old, and they were both sheds. The bodywork, especially sills, and boot floor, were lace.

The XKs were great Jaguars, and I too prefer the 150 for looks, but they developed as most cars do. A bit bigger, a bit heavier, a bit less sporting, because that's what the buyer wanted.

Thanks for the pictures John, that Mew Gull is a very rare beast and you have just caught the rudder of the Comet Racer.

I had a flight in the AA Dragon Rapide in the early sixties at Little Snoring where we had a Rally/Flyin -they used it for road reports back in the day.
It was interesting comparing it to the Tiger, a vastly different experience but with similar genetic power units.

Here you go the recovery operation, look out for it on an auction site near you...

When No1 daughter was doing her Masters at Uni we often had lunch or dinner there - proper old fashioned service levels without the fawning, a lovely charming old place with alternative parking now it would seem.

The only downside to Bath is that being situated in a natural bowl and the air pollution levels were diabolical when we were visiting, the comparison from living half a mile from the sea in the countryside didn't help I suppose where we either smell salt in the air or cattle outfall which is ok in our book.

No problem compared to this one...
