In 1964 a team led by Tony Brooks won no less than 15 International endurance records at Monza with a Corsair GT. !

The latest compilation gathers together many photos of Reliants, from three-wheelers and vans, to the Scimitar and Sabre coupes.

Today's compilation gathers together Vauxhalls and Opels (mainly UK market cars) of the 1960s and into the 1990s, all seen at shows, parked up in use, or in museums over the last 20 years.

Here's a rather unusual Reliant GT that appears at some of our local shows with a supercharged V8 shoehorned in.



..also my first Reliant.

It could be made to make quite rapid progress despite having only 700cc. You needed to wind up the speed for overtaking. So pull well back from the intended overtaking target and accelerate towards it when you think a good opportunity is coming up. If the opportunity is lost then you simply brake off all the speed advantage that you had over your target. I found my Rebel on a remote hill farm in Caldbeck Cumbria with a con rod through the side of its block. It replaced my nice little Ginetta G15 when our daughter out grew her carry cot.

The Rebel gearbox was too fragile for me. I had to change the layshaft twice. One and a half teeth off 3rd gear on both occasions

Wow I bet that GT goes well.

The latest upload covers some work done to the Standard's engine in a bid to quieten it down a little. Needless to say what should have been a quick-ish job turned into anything but.

Hi, earlier in the year we called in to the excellent, volunteer-run, Isle of Wight Bus & Coach Museum. In this vid we take a walk around it.

Morning folks, today's upload gathers many examples of lesser-often-spotted British cars of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, with such oddballs as the British Anzani Astra Utility, and the Lloyd Roadster, both getting a mention.
