    Like it! all normal to me, rich if you could afford the scrunchy Izal or Bronco toilet paper! one of my jobs as a kid was tearing newspapers into squares for toilet paper! Kodak 120 film for my box camera and 78 records, back when a Ford pop was in production, how times have changed! as an apprentice there was only the imperial system, Whitworth BSF BA and UNC threads, I still think in thous and inches and do the mental calculation into metric, no calculators or computers, log tables to work out angles etc, good old days? not sure 😂

    Tour of the moor

    Excellent tour! the notes and direction pennants worked well! we enjoyed the quiz, it was fun looking for some of the clues, we stopped for lunch in the Highwayman in Sourton a real quirky pub that's worth a visit! shame about Sunday though the persistent rain spoilt it but looking forward to next year, a big thanks to Scott and Chris for organizing the tour

    Classic Look Bluetooth Stereos

    My Mk3 Tina still has it's original Clarion L/W M/W radio fitted, can't get a lot out of it though, modern gubbins inside it would be good!

    Hi, I tried to post a pic on a Cortina forum and their site doesn't support photobucket imaging, due initially Iguess to the exorbitant yearly subscription they were charging, after a change of photobucket management it is now a more reasonable £2.00 or so a month.

    Are Photobucket image's downloads allowed on OSF? as they are not allowed on some other sites...

    Pinto bike carb..all in

    Glad you sold them! if not I would have to have bought them! but it would have meant taking off the fairly new 38 DGAS! trying to keep my 2.0 Cortina Crusader estate standard, but as in a previous topic - the voices!!

    Are you legally allowed to sell....

    You could sell your knees - a metal replacement from a private hospital costs £14,000! a new hip - £20,000! £34,000 should get you a decent twin cam! may have to drive with one leg though, could be a problem!
  14. A top show! weather was good with sun and a bit of cloud, a good selection of cars to look at well organized by Mark and the team, a big thanks to them for another good show!
