  1. Yes this is very sad news indeed. As one of our clubs founder members the loss is all the greater. Trevor has asked me to write a few words in her memory and this will appear in the next TR Action but suffice it to say she was an amazing woman and a dear friend whom I shall miss very much. hoges.
  2. Oh for the confidence of youth! Mine was nothing like that hoges.
  3. I was 11 years old back in 1964 but I still recall the excitement of that day when Nash and Dixon rode their sled to a Gold medal. Some time afterwards I was actually allowed to sit in it and I recall just how basic it was inside. I think the sled was on show at the Crystal Palace along with the working models of Stingray and Lady Penelope's 6 wheeled Rolls Royce from Thunderbirds. An unforgettable day out and to ride the Cresta run is still on my bucket list! Hoges.
  4. Just to add another comment to an earlier posting, Racetorations did indeed fit electric window kits and i believe Moss also offered them. I've been contemplating fitting them to my dove for as Roger says, its a bit of stretch to open the passengers window when you are belted in. I'm told they use Golf units and there was a fair bit of bracketry used inside the door I saw being worked on. I was about to buy one of the window kits Roger mentioned but having seen his comments I wont be going down that route. Maybe motors and gubbins from a Stag is the way to go. It keeps the conversion 'in
  5. Having worked on the T5 planning inquiry and the third runway issue i have probably a greater insight into all the backroom goings on that have dogged UK aviation since the ill fated Maplin project back in the late 1960's. Over 20 years ago I put forward to the govt of the day a report that said UK airspace and runway capacity in particular would be in a bad way if we didn't start doing something about it. New technology enabled the ATC problem to be met but nothing, absolutely nothing was done about runway capacity. I proposed plans for a new airport in the Thames Estuary long befor
  6. For the benefit of Misfit Derek the Italianate Job in the title stems from the fact that we are starting from the old ROMAN castle at Portchester and having an Italian meal the night before hand. We are also going through some countryside the Romans tried but failed to subdue and calling in at a very pretty Italian village en route where we my have a cappuccino or two before heading off to 'France'! We will NOT be calling in at Costa Coffee or Pizza Hut unless we face a dire emergency! Hoges .
  7. Hi Paul

                I was on the Coast to Coast run last year in a Citroen Light 15 and really enjoyed it and planned to do it again, unfortunately this is the first I have heard of the 2021 run and it is fully subscribed. Where was it publicised and how did I miss it?

               Cheers Richard

      hi Paul 

                  I watch submarines sail past on the Gareloch.

      Hi Dick. Nice view you have there. As you can guess we never left England due to covid.

      Hi Paul

                  I was due to go down to Essex for Christmas, it didn't happen. Christmas came early for Ms Sturgeon when she closed the border.

                  Cheers Richard

  8. Hi Roger, I have only just been made aware of this by Tim Hunt but to set the record straight. I didn't lift it from Club Triumph . In fact as I have told Tim, I didn't even know they did a C2C run. and why should I ? I'm not a member of Club Triumph. I organised a coast to Coast run last year with TRR backing and no complaints. This time the run is entitled 'Coast to Coast 2- The Italianate Job' However, as I have pointed out to Tim, the name Coast to Coast clearly says what the event is. How could you re name a run that went from Lands End to John O'Groats? I don't think you
  9. As there now seems to be some optimism that things will be getting back to something like normal next year i'm pleased to say that unless we declare war or something equally bad then the C2C run will be taking place next June 14th/15th - which to save anyone looking it up is on the Monday and Tuesday. If anyone would like to enter I have just one place left to fill. The Start is at Portchester Castle and will end at a secret destination in North Wales. The two hotels have been booked on a bed, breakfast and evening meal basis and it promises to be an interesting jaunt across some ver
  10. Well I have seen cars in worse condition than this that have been restored and with Italis fetching serious money these days I'm beginning to regret selling my own example. Now that really was a rust bucket! It was only the windscreen that stopped the roof caving in. which of course it did when I took the screen out!
  11. you can be sure about one thing. due to covid the chancellor will use every trick in his book to raise revenue from what ever source he can. I think the only taxes that wont rise will be Income tax and National insurance as there was a manifesto commitment not to raise those. hoges.
  12. Somebody else recently posted a question about fitting power steering to their TR6 and my advice was don't bother - unless there is a medical reason for needing power assistance. If the steering feels too heavy and particularly at low or parking speeds then there are other things you should be looking at first. The fitment of oversized wheels and tyres is usually the biggest culprit and do check your tyre pressures too. Having underinflated tyres wont help. After that jack the front of the car up so the wheels are off the ground and spin the steering wheel over lock to lock. it sh
  13. Hi Bruce, Pete, I already have the manifold and carbs so going down the weber route is a no no for me. However, looking at the pics people have posted I will see if either a spacer can be fitted or change the float chambers hoges.
  14. Yes, but doesn't it look good! No problem with fouling the steering column then? Hoges.
  15. Thanks for that info but in this case its for a triumph tr6 motorcycle! Not quite what I had in mind. Cheers. hoges.
