    sorry i was referring to the scimitar chassis on the previous page. nice job, fair play.

    @ Lightning - that looks really fresh, credit to you. The black trim contrast shows up really well. White on an older can look tatty (imho), but that's excellent :cool:

    Nice one. I use to have one looking very same with the same wheels. It was the Le Mans edition. The only problem with these cars is that my dog doesn't really like travelling in them. Neither the back seats or the hatch floor are suitable...

    Great stuff. Looks fab.

    Did you get your wing mirror back on?

    I actually prefer 924s without the trim. The early, trimless cars have that cleaner 70s look. I spent hours removing the trim from one side of mine and haven't got around to the other side yet!

    I quite fancy your turbo wheels though for a change.:)

    Another.....looking better ;)

    That doesn't matter.

    Car is from late 90s. Same as S2000, MX-5 etc. these cars are still too new to be labeled as classic.

    What's next? E46?

    The MX-5 is an 1980's design and first went into production in 1989 (in the US) :D They are also listed as classics by all the UK classic car publications just like the Golf GTI Mk2, BMW E30, Peugeot 205 GTI etc.

    Last minute booking for the test this evening - I didnt even clean it beforehand, was planning on receiving a to-do list, but she sailed on through without a blip. Good comments from the tester too :)

    Wow that Starlet looks great!

    Spitfire looks amazing too. What are those rear lamps from though!?

    Cheers, thanks! :)

    The rear lights are custom, the individual light fittings are Lucas L691/692's more commonly found on Imps (and the DB5 :p) which I've set on stainless backing panels and recessed the units into the rear panel.

    Still on its (original) Wankel engine, or replaced with a convential alternative? :).

    Very rare in RHD too. Looks very clean.

    I probably should man up, but then again I do drive an MX-5 so maybe that's not even possible :D

    Nice to see a 'commercial type' classic out and about :)

    Incidentially, does anybody here have a classic commercial vehicle insured on a classic policy?

    I believe a few people on the forum mentioned that it was difficult to get insurance for a classic commercial.

    Brought my '71 Zephyr for a trip to the Isle of Man. Just back now. It's hilly country compared with Kildare so V6 power would have been better than my V4. Lovely island to drive a classic in though and the ferry from Dublin is only 3hrs

    I went out with a girl many moons ago who's dad had a posh one of those as his company car. We knew that when we heard that yoke on the gravel driveway, we had less than 30 seconds to get dressed and look innocent!!

    I toured the IoM many years ago (not in a classic though) and it's a lovely place to visit. Interesting place, people ...and cars!

    Did you get a chance to visit the new (since 2015) IoM motor museum?
    From magazine articles I've read, it looks impressive.

    Zephyr looks well. Pic could have been taken in 1971

    That museum is worth the trip alone if your interested in unusual and american cars
