    I didn't realise the carbon discs would wear, my bosses 599 was 6k for refurbished discs from Germany Inc pads. Big boys toys eh! All good til the maintenance is required

    Posh, your mistaking me with someone who washes their hands after a pish Budgie, lol.
    Stu once told me he humped a Princess but I'm sure it was the Ambassador, burnt his tackle on the exhaust.

    There were two lassies used to drive an Allegro about the promenade in Leven when I was young and both wore glasses, they would provide you with a BJ at the drop of a hat and MANY of my friends (not me though) took them up on their hospitality. We called their Allegro an 'Egg roll" and it was nicknamed 'The Specky Mobile' pronounced mobeel for all the youngsters who think its a phone.

    Anyway, fast forward to about 2 years ago, I met a lad I hadn't seen for about 25 years and we were reminiscing about our youth and our cars, bikes etc. I asked if he remembered the Specky mobile and the dozens of guys that were serviced in it, he went a bit sheepish and said yes, and I asked if he knew what happened to the two of them as I joined the RAF and lost contact with lots of folk but never ever knew what happened to the girls.

    You guessed it he married one of them, I felt about 6 inches tall and wished the ground would swallow me up, it was time for a fast exit. I was pushing myself for about an hour, lol.

    There are special lifting pads too; https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N3QKX...d-9d90189430a3
    Thatís the trolly jack I use, I canít remember whether itís the 2.5 or 3 ton low profile one but itís awesome, does the job very well. I needed one for my low hatch sti and for working on my track car and Evo, they were up on stands more than Iíd like but it had to be done.

    British Leyland classics. Don't suppose any of you fellows happen to know the where abouts of a Princess or Ambasator gearbox? My mate is desperately trying to get one, as it fits a rover V8, and will fit a mini subframe!
