Generally - the day car is a white Golf GTD.........

However - for luxury at the pondside at at shows...........this is our usual mode of transport : 27' long 2 berth Mercedes Autotrail motorhome with a 'garage' at the rear big enough to transport our 7' long SD14.

A bit heavy on fuel though {:-{.

I have owned my Jaguar XJ6 since 1988.
It only has 82,000 miles on the clock.
I converted the automatic transmission to a 4-speed over-drive manual, added a rear suspension torsion bar, ventilated rear brake rotors, dual HD8 SU carbs, direct-coupled flex radiator fan, Mallory Uni-Lite electronic distributor, spin-on oil filter, V-12 radiator, polyurethane rubber suspension parts.
The next conversion will be center-lock hubs with D-Type wheels.
It has much of the feel of an Series III XKE.
Regards,
Giovanni

I am a Mondeo man, don't laugh, I love the cars and they never let me down.
I have a 1993 2.0 Si saloon with full factory fitted RS body kit that is as clean underneath as it is on top.

a 1996 1.8 diesel turbo saloon that is slow, sluggish but gets 600 miles to a tank of juice (and as I also have a cafe at the moment looking into running it on old veg oil as I go through 20 litres a week when I clean fryers)

and a 2000 1.8 lx hatchback that is played with a bit, full leather Ghia X interior, lowered 40mm, 2 litre cams and throttle body and induction kit (this little tweak gives it more power than the 2 litre and because the flywheel is lighter it revs faster)

and at weekends in the summer I can be found crewing and getting in the way with this beast.
Mk1 Vauxhal Cavalier with a 454ci taken stroked to 575ci (9.4 litres) John Sleath built V8 700bhp on pump gas, 1000bhp on race gas and 400bjavascript:void(0);hp nitrous at the push of a button.

My collection:




Subaru Outback. My wife drives this one most of the time. Its a rare treat for me to use it. I use a 1992 Honda Accord station wagon for most of my trips in foul weather, the motor bike in good.




The farm truck



1966 Chevelle I've had for over 40 years. She looks as good underneath as on top. 59, 000 original miles.



Engine in the Chevelle. Hi performance 427 that's been tweeked some more



1952 Dodge Power Wagon Canadian Army ambulance. Want to get this one on the road this year.

You gotta have toys.

No, I'm afraid it's a much modified Gentry. Once I found out that Naylor would supply their car in kiy form I wished I'd got that instead! BY.

Chevrolet Captiva 3.2 LTZ in white.

The pic is off tinternet, but it is the same beast.
7 seater SUV, same set up as the Vauxhall/Opel Antara, but higher spec.

3.2L V6 engine.
5 speed Auto, but I wish they did a manual as the kick down cause a lag if you want to move.

We sold the Skoda Superb - lovely car, great mpg - after a 600 "service".  :o

Now tootling around in a somewhat distressed Ford Ka, covered in vinyl flowers. (Note to Martin - there's no emoticon for "old hippy").  :-))

who ever modified it brian did a fantastic job.....it looks much more like a genuine TF and Naylor TF than a gentry ever did.....really looks lovely.

i'm very envious.
had a 1951 TD when i was in australia 30 odd years ago, and just loved it .    wished i'd brought it home now.
once an mg man, always an mg man[and their replica's]
just love em.

ENJOY THE SUMMER .
