Re: Brexit Bonus!

Would they not keep the number plate info and wait until you next come back to england ? Besides that, german newspapers say its „hard times in the UK“, pictures of almost empty shops in ireland, problems with goods bein send over + high taxes so that british clothing companys have to pay high taxes...

Re: S1 (4.2) vs S3

I still want to test my 4.2 2+2 vs my Citroen SM 3.0 2+2... albeit the SM appeared in 1970, so the V12 would have been the opponent.

But first... I need to finish the E ...I‘m currently shopping for a windshield.

Re: E-Type major price correction expected?!

I think that for a limited time there will be deflation.

Then they will print, still lots of companies will go bust, and then there will be a strong inflation.

Then there will be a currency reset... and then we all start again from scratch ;-)

They say you can choose what you want from their catalogue, enter the price you would want to pay (reasonable, please), and they see what they can then do. What do you think, a front windshield -which I ...

Re: 1968 Series II - valuation?

IRS / Rear Axle S2: are there any compatible cars ?

...a friend of mine asked me to look out for an IRS or parts which he needs for a customer who bought an incomplete S2 car. He already has a Diff plus brakes from an XJ6, but nothing more. Iirc the S1 and S2 IRS are the smallest of them all, so from memory nothing would fit- only the S3 axle is wide...
