  1. Wish I was married to a Duchess, I could do with one of those !
  2. This weekend I think I will get in the garage, turn up the heating and clean something on the Joker, while I'm in there with nothing much to do I will have time to dream of the fresh spring days. I'm sure I am suffering fro S.A.D
  3. Don't be embarrassed to ask anything on this forum everyone is happy to help, and it may be a question others are wanting to ask.
  4. It's strange how we spend money to keep the dog, £500 telly, the spare bedroom we haven't even been in for years and the wife warm and dry but neglect our £20k (and often more) pride and joy. My garage was built to the same spec as my kitchen with insulted floor, walls, roof and door along with central heating. I told the wife it was in case we ever wanted to turn it into a study, and she fell for it. The Joker sits in there snug as a bug in a rug. Magic
  5. Fired the Joker up ready for a run out when the weatherman forecasted dry afternoon, which never arrived! So had to take the Discovery. Did see a brave bloke out in a beautiful pale blue Healey, fantastic, made my day
  6. I need the make sure the Joker is still in there and start thinking about those warm spring days.
  7. Don't do it Neil, resist at all costs, marriage is over rated
  8. Last blast round the Cheshire countryside this afternoon to watch the Vulcan fly past, fantastic! Tucked the 6 up for winter, in the garage sorry Manfred
  9. Hopefully actually get my 6 OUT of the garage this weekend , between thunderstorms
  10. Never too old to learn something new, but a nervous afternoon I would think.
  11. Not going far this weekend as waiting for Granddaughter No 2, Angie (wifey) is like a cat on hot bricks waiting for the phone call. The 6 may get as far as the drive for a little sun and a polish.
  12. Daz

    Sticky Clutch

    Chuck the B&B Transit clutch away and get a proper Leycock TR one
  13. This weekend I hope to dust of the 6 and take it out for a blast, going to a show near Leek on Saturday, but the weather looks cr4p again......
  14. Just returned from Devon to find a cheque from Swansea for £95 so me a happy bunny.
  15. My V5C came back today but no refund !! :ph34r:
  16. More thanks to Derek, I have received a letter confirming new tax class, a receipt for £0 confirming my car is taxed until next March, V5C to follow, interestingly there is no mention of the £126 I paid to tax it 2 weeks ago maybe it will come back with the V5C. The main thing is its now free to tax for the next 40 years Result Huge thanks Derek
  17. Thanks Bruce, that's just what I have done. I hope to get my money back but I really just want to get the taxation class sorted for next time. Money is only money, it cant make you smile like a 6 on a sunny day. I will report back when / if my paperwork ever returns
  18. I have been married for nearly 30 years and in 2002 I rebuilt an MGB, so nothing gets me down
  19. This weekend the garage will be vacant as me and the Joker are out to play
  20. Well I failed today at local main post office, my car is 74 built 75 reg, I have a heritage certificate, they didn't know what it was, I gave up, paid my £126 and will be posting the reg doc to Swansea. Main thing is I'm back on the road for spring and to be honest £126 is cheap after blasting round the A roads for an hour tonight I have had my monies worth already
  21. I like it,especially the bumpers, front grill and detailed engine bay
  22. I was going out for a blast but the weather looks wet so I will be fitting my Phoenix manifold and link pipes
  23. I fitted one from an 80s Jag, more in keeping with the car rather than the more modern rubber ones, search ebay about £20 I think
  24. A last little check over and off for MOT on Saturday morning, so long as its not snowing ! Then Wednesday 1st April off to the post office for my FREE road tax. Then I can spend some time polishing my 5/8" Sill trims and waxing my body coloured sills
