  1. Cheers guys, I think he is gonna sell, just needs a kick up the backside to make a decision.
  2. My mate is thinking of selling his MK1, any ideas what it would be worth? Its a 4 door with a 1700 crossflow on bike carbs, 5 speed, Peter Lloyd exhaust. spax springs and shox, single de-cambered leafs. Really solid in the right places doesn't need any welding, a couple of bubbles starting on the doors, needs a general tidy. Any ideas?
  3. Has anyone had any issues with H&H distributors retarding themselves, Mine keeps retarding itself over a couple of weeks. The distributor isnt moving and the drive pulley is still timed the same as the cam pulley, so the only way it can retard is internally. Any ideas?
  4. My mate runs the Triumph TR register and he invited me to there annual driving skills day, Kicked there asses for the 3rd year running!
  5. Just a few pics i took
  6. I'm gonna be leaving Leicester around 6.30, the Q is always huge! should get in around 7.45
  7. Lovely looking car bigjohn Cheers matey!

    60ft Time

    Just wondering what a good 60ft time is for a road car on road tyres?

  12. I think if i was going to do it i would use a different car, i dont want to wreck this one
  13. I really liked the white mk1 escort on a trailer, space framed and it sat really nicely, & soon to have 2.6 v8 twin busa engine. It looked stunning!
  14. First time down it was a bit nerve wracking, those lights change awful quick. It was both one of the best things and the worst things at the same time. It was such a buzz getting off the line and trying not to fluff gear changes. BUT I'm now thinking what can I strip off the car, I need an LSD, and a bigger engine or. a Turbo. Argh!
