  1. I feel for him because his whole career looks like it will now go up in smoke. Its hard to beleive a pro ref putting his reputation and job on the line with a remark like that..... even if he is found innocent the poor bloke will always be tarnished by a minority with this now......
  2. loved the old Fords before all this tamper proof techno stuff on new cars... Give me a set of feeler gauges and a strobe with a few tools and I was in my element when I was a lad ........
  3. Would think one of these would set you back a few grand these days... Found some old footage of Roger Clark driving one in the manx rally ...
  4. some stunning classics there Rake . I wonder what the Escort MK2 RS 1800 twin cam would fetch in that sort of condition. reckon they would be hard to get hold of now mate! I know they was pretty rare years ago ...
  5. was a passenger in a Nissan Skyline GTR a couple of years ago... I was shocked for such a big car how quick it was, Pinned me to the seat virtually through every gear...
  6. This is the stuff I have used in the past. cut it to length with the angle grinder, you'll need a decent 20mm auger bit to cut your holes in the wood frame.... Gapped mine 3" apart across the window, you may need it closer for smaller birds ........ http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/CO20GslashPACK.html?source=froogle
  7. nice one mate cheers . another one that I used to love in its day was the Escort MK2 RS1800.........
  8. Must say the mk5's was nice, think they did one called a crusuader with a 2.3 lump under the bonnet? What size engine did the MK1 lotus have in in chid? I would think they would fetch a few bob these days.......
  9. seen this Cortina mk3 on ebay, £6000 and riseing . had one of these in a 2.0, boy do I wish I still had it now..... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1972-FORD-CORTINA-MK3-1600GT-2-DOOR-/120995436678?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item1c2be3d886

    wales v scotland

    Why oh why Man Utd didn't break the bank to buy Gareth Bale is beyond me, what a player!! a real match winner like another welsh wizard Ryan Giggs ..........
  11. Couldn't agree more its getting worst mate with trolls everywhere! the internet can be a world of hurt and bullying for some kids and adults alike.........
  12. Damn shame mate and its happening all over the country to small butchers and the like... used to be a butchers I loved going to for his Porkpies, went their one day and he was shutdown . think the blame rests with alot of these supermarkets taking over these days......
  13. You're making me wish I was a lad again chid , one of the joys with these old fords if you had the know how was the way you could chop and change engines and running gear . I still love to see them in all their glory expecially when somthing special is under the bonnet..........
  14. No idea Cookie . I remember the lotus Cortina which I think was 1600 twincam . cracking days when you could walk outside with a pair of feeler gauges and a strobe and screwdriver and set cars up ourselves, remember spending hours gaping the points and plugs and tweaking around with the mixture, and strobeing the timing, as a lad I couldn't wait to get under the bonnet for a play , these days its all tamperproof which is a shame . don't think kids these days will have half the fun we had when we was lads..... a local lad had a MK1 RS2000 with twin 40's, cherry bomb exhaust and a few other mods, we used to here this thing burbling away at the traffic light at the top of my mothers road, everytime I saw it I drooled .....
  15. Fell of my chair when I saw the value of this. Had a MK1 1974 plate when I first passed my test but mine was a little 1100, bet that would be worth a few quid these days now too http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1969-Ford-Lotus-Escort-RARE-/380450221690?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item589499ae7a
  16. :laugh: wonder what he'll be wanting to swap his harris for when he gets fed up with that.......

    Hoods

    It seems that way arctic . I have some here numbered 7 for my old male Gos upto 11 for a female and others witch goes up on 100's, one says 102... Its all pretty confuseing to me but could well be down to the blocks used. I think Grovsey is the man to talk to about this, would beinteresting to find this one out myself as I'm totaly in the dark....... to confuse things even more I have one I just took out of the cuboard which is recent which has 58 in it, fits the female Peregrine....
  18. No messing Archie. nice shooting mate . silly question but is that a different bolt handle on your R10 or a somthing that pops on? must say it looks nice and chunky and suits the gun perfect.........

    Hoods

    steves one of the good guys bullseye. he's been making Hoods for many years and a guy I have always got on with, not spoken to him for a few years but trust me he is a real gent of the genuine old school type. Grovesy got it in one about him ..... Don't get me wrong some hoods look the Dogs danglies but a good fitting hood is everything in making a bird to the Hood, there's some blocked hoods I have used in the past that look great but either sit high on the birds head or slope pretty sharp at the back with some tending to pinch the knape feathers. I have some old school mollen hoods here that I personaly think are a wonderfull fit on certain species, I wouldn't part with them for anything ......
  20. this explains why our dogs are stil scratching a few weeks after the wife treated them with frontline, not cheap either... no idea how true this is or if it works as I have never tried it but was told that Garlic mixed into the food keeps the fleas off? I know Garlic has alot of good uses like warding off Vampires and the like
  21. Once in a lifetime picture's, video at bottom of page ..... http://www.dailymail...ube-video.html
  22. Tony thats got to be some sort of joke what I just read. WTF is this country coming to when a guy like yourself stays well within the law with no illegal issues, yet some scumbags in a shithole council house carry and keep every offensive weapon you can think off either on their premises or car on pretty much on their goodselves It seems laws and rules are made everyday in this country these days without any oposition, laws get passed through parlament with never hear about until it effects us in someway. it seems the backbone is slowly being snapped in the UK now. years ago we would sit back and look at comunist countries in disbeleif at some of things that went on! it now looks like they are becoming more westernised and easy going and we are on the reverse......
  23. The bloke was a out and out wierdo. there'll be a few more celebs outed either after their death or from a backlash from this case.... Been reading a few jokes about him already being fired about on the net, some was pretty sick to be honest but this was one the tamer one's... "I can't say I'm sorry He's Dead... My life was never the same since he fixed it for me to go camping with Gary Glitter"
  24. Nice one Phantom its always good to hear from you mate, had a few weeks away as you know and still feeling the after effects of whats happend but things are looking up again atb, Tony
