Re: SCAM

I actually felt privileged to be in your address book, Don ;)

The email 'felt' wrong, and the scammer's reply to my reply immediately told me what I needed to know...
Hope you got it sorted again, hope you don't have to change too many passwords now?

Re: Bushes pack?

If you want to combine budget and peace of mind you could order the veemounts and the lower wishbone bushes (they su...

Re: Bushes pack?

So you can generally recommend britishparts.co.uk for suspension parts? I've found most aftermarket parts to be just fine, with the exception of suspension bushes & veemounts. The aftermarket stuff I used for my Sovereign rebuild wore out quicker than I could say 'bad decision'. :( Some had to ...

this example looks quite nice Used for the wedding of Arkan & Ceca, there might still be some 7.62 shells stuck in the overmats... :roll: Ironically, the car's for sale in the same town where he served his first jail sentence. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arkan Would the 'celebrity ownership' ...

Re: Interesting Daimlers

Good find, Simon! It's spectacular, both in specs and in trim choice... I've seen Naki's ex-car in the flesh and love that interior/exterior colour combination. But... A EUR 40K restoration?
