  1. Great work - wonderful step back in time, thank you for taking the time to upload ........ Andy
  2. As mentioned above, you can now pay (by card) on the day ....... Andy
  3. Colin, there was some discussion about this on the TR Register earlier in the week - it appears that you can now buy tickets on the day - but only card payment Will be accepted, no cash. Their webpage has been updated to that effect. https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2021/06/0270/Book-now-for-the-massive-Triumph-and-MG-Weekend Hope that helps..... Andy
  4. Glad you are making some good progress..... the time to drive-and-enjoy is fast approaching ....... Andy
  5. The person wielding the laser should - in my view - have a life-ban from stadiums, however the laser didn’t affect Kasper Schmeichel - he saved the penalty and it certainly wouldn’t have altered his chances with the rebound (he wasn’t far from that either!) Once in extra time the Danes were pretty-much out on their feet, it was only going to end one way - although a dubious penalty wouldn’t be my first choice! ..... Andy
  6. i suspect you misheard, most likely to be referring to Mr Shearer as participating in the 1996 European Championship.
  7. Super, glad things are progressing for you ....... Andy
  8. Good stuff, a great example of looking for the simple fix rather than over-thinking, well done ....... Andy
  9. If your fuel gauge is also reading high then the culprit is very likely to be a faulty voltage stabiliser. i think the gtr108 is listed for the Spitfire, but could have changed over the years of production as gauges altered, of previous owners have altered what is available. May be worth trying both temp senders - they are only £6/7 - and see which provides the most reasonable output. ....... Andy
  10. Excellent! Exactly what Mr Triumph built it for enjoy the drive! ........ Andy

    Triumph Stag

    The arches are a warning sign - there is likely to be more elsewhere once opened up. the drivers door looks to have some warning signs of a rusty skin - but the panel gas ( as mentioned above) look ok. Under the bonnet looks generally unloved, as does the interior, but would probably clean up ok. Paul at Stag Classics in Alton has a good reputation, so that is a positive for the engine work - the Clive Tate ZF auto conversion is very desirable, it could have been done by Clive, Favershams, EJ Ward or Paul at Stag Classics as they will all do the work. It is approx £4K to have one of them do the job. the anoraks will point out that the pinstripes are upside down, the rear wing badges are pointing the wrong way and possibly missing a pair of cover sills. the prices for these have changed so much since I sold mine (isn’t that always the way ) so I wouldn’t suggest a value - I would recommend taking a closer look at the rusty areas I mentioned earlier. ....... Andy
  12. Glad you were able to come to a choice..... all the best for some smooth sailing ........ Andy
  13. Wise words from Nigel. I’d only add that if you only view old-car ownership via the lenses of a calculator then we’d probably all give up now.... but the value is (for me at least) in the enjoyment of the car - and always bear in mind the old saying that ‘perfection is the enemy of the good’, often people can get blindsided by mission-creep, sometimes doing just-enough is good enough. Just my tuppence....... andy
  14. This link should work shortly after the program airs if you prefer to watch online https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000w6sp?fbclid=IwAR2_I5RpTyZDlVn6lV81Ekt8VKqqul_0dj_uibPd8N6GcAt2DCoIC-EblxU ..... Andy
  15. Yep, mine has been set since last week ........ Andy
  16. Super..... glad you are having more success, enjoy the search ....... Andy
  17. No, I don’t have any other links, the owner wouldn’t be the first person to align to the revised MoT testing for Historic vehicles - as mentioned, a conversation with the owner is probably the most effective way to proceed. ..... Andy
  18. I did read some info on it a while ago - but don’t remember the detail. I believe the owner is from the United States and probably a link to pool - doesn’t take much to change the gear knob, not sure if the roof is paint or decal - I’d speak to the owner if i were you. ....... Andy
  19. I thought you may find it of interest ....... Andy
  20. This his should work: https://www.facebook.com/groups/659232924278450/permalink/1656012721267127/ ....... Andy
  21. If you are still interested in a 4, one has appeared today on the Triumph TR4 Group on Facebook - it looks quite interesting at a price that is probably achievable for you - located in Portsmouth (no personal interest) ........ Andy
  22. The factory upgrade was to switch to a pair of HS2’s on an 1147 Spitfire inlet and exhaust manifold - that is the path I’d go if I wanted a little more oomph from an 1147 Herald. ...... Andy
  23. Only you can answer that really - if I were looking for a car and this one was ‘talking to me’ I’d probably try and pay £16-17k and accept there was more to be spent. ..... good luck, Andy
  24. Based on your list: the chrome looks ok in the pics ; some of the body will need work over time (doors, sills - they are technically cosmetic items, boot lid, battery tray area); the panel gaps don’t look so good ; can’t really comment on mechanicals. lets be honest, pretty-much any car (except something rebuilt by a perfectionist regardless of cost) will need work done - the only question is how much effort/cost and over what timeframe. Personally, I think it is great that you are keen on a 4, they are wonderful cars (I am of course biased!) I hope you find the car that you after - whichever you choose it will be great fun .......
