Already posted in a couple of other threads. I am Jaine, I own a 72 Mini, Subaru Impreza WRX wagon, Clio Cup, Jag XJ8 & a Clio Williams I am selling. Used to be a biker in my youth & owned a few BSA's amongst others. I think I was meant to be born a boy as I love all things with an engine & am far happier at Santa Pod dying of fumes than at lakeside looking at handbags Laughing
I love animals & own enough to qualify for a small zoo. I am a dog walker in my spare time & work for the awful NHS. Rolling Eyes
I drive too fast, smoke & still suck my thumb. Very Happy love creme eggs & roast dinners.
Hope I fit in

Jaine

Welcome Jaine. Sounds like you have enough vices to fit in well with our lot.

Hello everyone.
Newbie to the site, live in Cornwall with partner, kids and various animals.
No interesting vehicles as yet but looking to find an Armstrong Siddeley 12/14/16 or Sapphire "at the right price" and "in the right condition", preferably not too far away (a big ask I know)!

Looking forward to hearing from you about experiences advice etc...

Regards

Gavin

New bloke from Australia here, with a vintage Sunbeam, the odd pre-war Riley and an MG or two for everyday use.

Just a very quick intro as it would be rude not to...

I've owned, rebuilt, scrapped, modified, loved, hated, spent money, lavished attention or totally ignored for years a good number of what I thought to be interesting cars.

In my dotage I have calmed down a little and now am restricted to one or two elderly Landrovers, a mint '87 Volvo 240, a 1951 V8 Pilot and errrr, mmmm, not sure I should mention this... but I'lll take a chance - a Model B coupe Hotrod.

Intending to be an active member of the forum,

Cheers for now..

Looks great, I'll split this into its own thread and move it into the Your Cars ... Ford category.

I missed this thread first time around round Embarassed

I'm from Australia, recently bought a Mayflower to gradually restore, not in a particular rush to get it done quickly. Hope to gain some tips on the way and share my progress.

Cheers,

Nev

Morning all. I'm new to the forum so thought I'd do the decent thing and introduce myself. I'm Graham, retired and I live in Bristol and am the proud owner of a 1960 Riley 1.5 called Mabel.

For a number of reasons I've only recently got back into classics. As a lad I'd think nothing of tackling anything on a car but a lifetime in financial services have dwelt a blow to my skills and confidence so apart from day-to-day tinkering and fettling I often use the services of specialists......when cash permits. Once I've worked out how to upload a photo (I think I've already seen a posting on how to do this) I'll post a picture of Mabel for all to see.

Hey all,

Just joined,

I have done a few light resto's down the years (mg's, spitfire) but currently doing my biggest and hopefully best show/concours resto so lots of silly questions ahead.

I know VW's get a little frowned upon in the classic world but i love them,

I do bits and pieces for our local club and I'm currently involved in 3 camper restorations. Two of my own and my dads.

Here's just a few of my favourite's and some of the story so far ,

As collected Jan 2012



Onto my home made rollers,





Approx 3 months later Cool ,



After after 9!! horrendous months (quoted 4-6 weeks!) in the paint shop,

With a few mishaps along the way, not happy at all when I saw this Shocked Surprised

The paint shop had left the van outside 8 weeks with the front in bare metal



But finaly about 2 weeks ago she came home



I've still got plenty of issues with the paint which will be addressed once the vans built but it's not all bad



Oh did I mention I started another one while mine was being painted Mad

1968 deluxe,



Slightly worse than the 71



But still came up looking good..



Few weeks pass and it's back on its wheels awaiting an engine, don't worry the wheels will be getting a change of colour I'm trying to build this one on a budget to be a daily/runaround



Sorry.. That's enough for now, I told you I'd bore you with photos Embarassed

Welcome aboard 89rallye Smile if it's ok with you I'll split your post into its own thread about the VWs, that way it'll be easier to follow progress

Hi, and welcome from me also.

It's good to see what other folk are working on> If you have any more photos please post them, everything is interesting; and it's good to see how a job is progressing.

Thanks.
