Re: RIP Brian Lister

Great article and great cars
Difficult to imagine someone with the disabilities of Archie Scot Brown racing in F1 today.

Re: WTF!!!?!!!

Norman is right - a lot of us do care greatly. I haven't visited frequently enough recently to know anything about the background to this but I suspect that Rich's posts (now deleted) may have been the last straw. JR will know more about this - please can you liaise with him. We need Rob more than s...

Re: REASONS FOR LEAVING

I have not visited this site as regularly as I used to so I don't know anything about recent events. However, whilst people come and go from here, I was shocked to read Rob's email announcing his departure. I have been a member of this site for years and one of the reasons I admired it so much was b...

Re: Scrapper [ Westminster blue 4.0 L Daimler ] lives on

Derek, the classic car dealers would describe the "before" paintwork as patina ! You are a craftsman! I actually get more satisfaction from getting a bargain and then looking after it, than I would from buying a flash new car. My Alfa 156 is heading towards 200k miles and I still get admir...

Re: Another car but not a Jaguar

These cars remind me of my childhood! When released in 1976, they had a similar effect on me to that which the E Type and XJ6 probably had on an earlier generation. The release models were yellow with brown velour upholstery and had the trademark "pod" dashboard. I recall that reports at t...

Re: Referendum

I've been away from this forum for a few weeks and have just read through the emails on this thread. I know the golden rule about no politics and generally agree as such a debate would normally degenerate into crude mudslinging on other forums but I can honestly say that its a great reflection of th...

Re: HI everyone

Dave I've only today seen your post. I didn't attend Donnington but its clear from your post and the responses that Philip was a very popular lad and also had good taste in cars but, much more importantly, loved his Mum and Dad. He may have died young but it will be a great comfort to know that he w...
