Re: Hawk 289 IVA testing

Hi Jerry,

I'm afraid I can't help you much regarding IVA, but I will soon become your nearest 289 Register neighbour when I move to Litton in a couple of weeks time.

Good luck with the IVA. And, if you think you might need an extra pair of hands at all, just let me know and I can pop over.

Phil.

Re: Scam/blackmail emails

Email password should be okay. It was my forum password which they knew.

My worry is if they start threatening to reveal my eBay buying habits to the Mrs – I might just have to pay up!

Re: Scam/blackmail emails

I noticed a generic one in my spam folder a couple of weeks ago, but one appeared in my inbox a few days ago which revealed my T289R password, which has now been changed. However, following a google search, I've just discovered today that I did use the same password 8 years ago, just a couple of tim...

Re: Hair-raising...

Here are some recent improvements/modifications I've done to my other half's car. There are still plenty of miles left in the old girl yet!

Re: Consultation on changing emissions standards for kit cars

It's very good news indeed.

The reply I got from my local MP was basically "but we must cut down on emissions". She really didn't get the gist of what was being said in my letter. Normally she would get my vote, but as a result, I'll be putting my 'X' in another box come voting day.

Re: Well I said I would.............

The Jag rear end is such a heavy assembly and add to it a cast iron lump up front, it all adds up. A Hawk with an MG axle and a Rover V8, I'm guessing, is considerably lighter.
