Le Mans 66

This is the UK (and I think Europe generally) title of the film called 'Ford v Ferrari' in the US. Not sure why they needed to change the title for us but I have to say that my wife Nicky and I saw it on the big screen in our local ODEON theatre and we were both impressed. I'd been put off a bit bef...

PHIL RILEY FOR PRESIDENT!

Well, not quite...but you have a few days left to register a vote for Phil in 2 Club Award categories at this year's NEC Classic Car Show. Phil will inevitably see this and blush, but he needs to know that a vote for himself won't count. :wink: There are 2 categories suitable, as I see it: Club Maga...

Re: AC Owners Club Goodwood Sprint - Saturday November 2nd

Truth is Clive I'm desperately trying to hang on to both but I have a serious potential buyer coming from France next week and if he pays me what I want then I will let it go.

Re: Engine Oil for Rover engines

Having owned the TVR Chimaera 450 (Range Rover 4.5 EFI breathed on by TVR Power) for a few weeks now I was fascinated to learn that the experts in these cars stress the importance of a good mineral oil, 20-50 or 20-60. Millers will be my choice.

Re: Tonneau fitted

When I drive with the tonneau fitted I just roll the driver's side back and tuck it behind the seat. It works fine at motorway speeds. No need to fit anything in the middle. That works because Clive has short legs, bless him :lol: Original Cobras had 3 ferrules in the door top, whereas the Hawk sid...

Re: Engine builder s/e

CMES looked after my MGB race engine, very successfully. The boss, Paul, owns a Mustang and loves Ford V8's. He's got a lot of well-heeled customers and a strong reputation in the Paddocks.

Not sure how different it is to a Hawk though, both in terms of material diameter and thickness, ...
