Nice Zed's ... rain is no excuse for not using it though, it has a roof!


One week later... Perhaps buying a white car wasn't such a smart move spin

A bittersweet moment last night, selling the Legacy GTB after 11 happy years. Best (and most reliable) car all-round I've ever owned.

A keen buyer (especially once he hit secondary boost in 3rd) made for the easiest sale ever, but still a bit sad to see it go.









Photos for posterity, farewell old friend.

I am rebuilding an old Time Attack Swift into a road rally/ targa car.

As collected:-


Work in progress.



Will be stripping it back and getting the cage re-worked to add a roof diagonal and to get the footings redone to MSA standards.
The donor car is our previous car that sadly had a slight attack of scenery one night.

The build will be fairly slow as I don't have any spare money at the moment and am still working for now.

both very cool in their own way. Bet hardly anyone knows much about the Vitz an assumes it's just like any other UK Yaris.

Still enjoying my V6 mr2 but having naughty thoughts of replacing it as a friend really wants to buy it. Some other Jap toys that i've always fancied are constantly catching my eye - DC2, ST185 GT4 or even a 205, Mk1 MR2...not sure what to do as I do love this car. Would just be nice to try something different, but then there's the risk I'll never find another one like it.

A few pics of my ST165 that I purchased around 8 months ago as a result of sitting inside one when I was a little nipper for so many years! The plan is to restore this car to its former glory and drive it over to the south of spain to surprise my dad with it as he doesn't know I have it. He can't keep the car but he's welcome to drive it smile







And a couple of pictures of what my dad had. I actually took these outside his house in 2006 when he moved back to spain, he didn't want to sell the car so he drove it all the way over there, where it lasted a few more years then it overheated and cost him too much to repair, so went to the scrappys, he owned it for about 15 years though.

Your photo isn't showing for me. I know you're right mate, so i'm very hesitant to sell it for that reason tbh. Need to have a serious think about it before this lockdown is over. Hope you're keeping well and look forward to joining you for a Kent run soon.

Looks alright for a 15 year old car that up until about 12 months ago was clocking up 2000 miles a week smile

Yes, thanks. In that case you'll have to keep it until we're allowed out again. smile

Car looks a bit 'early 2000's Russian oligarch' but the photography and trees in the first image are fantastic.

Cheers, No special camera just a cheap oppo smartphone. Spent some weeks convincing my wife not to chop the trees back. By far my favourite plants in our whole garden. Not sure what they are though.

That's them! We don't get fruit from them though. Must be the climate. Cheers! Have always wondered what they are.
