Re: JLR Win Copyright on C type

Where does that leave all the other C/D Type and SS100 copies?

Oddly they lost the Defender copyright action.

Re: LUCAS PL headlights

Haddock's guide is now 30 years old and we are finding new information about these cars all the time. I regularly have to update the Factory Fit threads accordingly. Books are good but can be out of date before they even go to press. Good luck with finding any usable B-F700 sealed beam headlamps as ...

Re: Brexit Bonus!

It is that sort of reporting, misinformation and wilfull lying that makes us glad to be out of the EU. No empty shelves here and we are making a concious effort to avoid buying any EU goods. No more French wine and German cars. I am sure other countries are consideriung following our lead.

Equally, as we want to be fair to our European neighbours, we can't fine them if they find an opportunity to go fast over here. To be clear the Po...
