Bit of a cheat but a spot nonetheless. At cars and coffee yesterday, a lovely clean sportpack owned by a very nice German chap who I got chatting to.

Re: Maxis 1275gt (not dialup friendly)

He's a 40+ year old car (well most of him anyway :mrgreen: ) so he was a little worse for wear underneath so i wanted to sort that out. While I was getting him stripped back I decided that there was a lot o...

Mini things - FREE to a good home

Doing a spring clean at home here and I've a couple of things lying around that might benefit somebody on here with a project. They are FREE to collect from James Street, Dublin 8. My only criteria is that they aren't to be sold on 2 weeks later. First up, rover mini grille (from our old 98 cooper) ...

Re: Maxis 1275gt (not dialup friendly)

FINALLY put some miles on him today. Had a lovely spin down to Waterford and back. Took in some lovely backroads too. He's driving beautifully, the BMW head really is a hoot to drive. The temptation to give it the full shoe is unreal! The interior needs a complete freshen up, new seats, dash etc... ...
