Re: Ruskin statement

At the moment it appears that K7 is going to be parted out and the “wreckage” given back to the Ruskin . Now wether cooler heads are going to prevail and the parties actually get together like adults and work out the issues remains to be seen . If K7 is indeed broken up it will be a devastating loss...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

That is a very very nice car, alas it is not for me. Something about 400bhp to the rear wheels, no ABS, no traction control but an amazing soundtrack is what I love. The TVR isn’t, and unlikely never will be, the most reliable, and it will burst into flames without the turn of a key, however, I jus...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

My favourite colour combo is like a metallic dark silver with ivory sides (not sure if it’s period correct...perhaps not) the bonnet had louvred vents too, it looked the dogs danglies though. Still fancy myself a nice TVR T350c, it will happen eventually. No Rich that would not be a period correct ...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

What about other bits? Glass, interior trim, etc? Are they readily available in Canada? I can basically order everything on line from somewhere , however a lot of the reproduction stuff is made in China and of shall we say questionable quality so wherever possible I use the original parts and refur...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

Well that right there is some serious hours just in the metal work and it looks well for it too! Have you added extra strength "under the skin"? (dash rail for example?) The whole inner superstructure (chassis/inner body) was built by a company that specialize in building aftermarket Heal...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Why would the RM want to spite you actually running on Bute in 2022 .....It would cost them money in legal fees they don’t have and they would look even more stupid and petty than they already do .........but then again........fill in the blanks .

Re: What have forum members been up to?

Originally Healeys were built with aluminum shrouds (bit with the hole for boot n bonnet) and steel wings and doors . That’s why they rotted so badly due to dissimilar metals . I bought the car as a total basket case all in boxes taken apart by someone who had given up on it once they realized they ...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

My latest Healey project . She’s a 62 Tri Carb with original factory hardtop . I’ve gone all aluminum except the boot n bonnet . The side rally vents are non original but the car will be finished to look like a 60s rally healey , hence the oil cooler intakes on the front . It will have a scuttle sco...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Bit of a conundrum, is that. Is it sillier to obstinately stay in the huff than it is to say, oops - got that wrong, sorry everyone, won't be making that mistake again? Personally, I think her track record now means that anything she says has little or no credibility. Yep . Gina has zero credibilit...
