  1. Lancia Stratos A great Group B Legend rally car. 😉 Classic GT40 all the way 😉
  2. Going back on this two cars I regret getting rid of was my first Ford Probe GTV6 and the Rover 75/ZT Hybrid, 75 interior MG ZT exterior trim and bumpers. Had my first Ford probe at 14 years old, my old man originally bought too safe repair and sell, how ever I liked it so much I begged him too keep it, on my 14th birthday the keys were handed too me for 7 years I owned her, Only problem I couldn't afford the insurance and tin worm had started too get too her so she was scrapped, Only I could do was drive it around the private trading estate which is down the road from me so did get used but not enough. Since then I always said if I bought other one I'll do everything I can possibly can too maintain it and keep as long as possible. Next is a completely different car altogether yes a Rover 75 Diesel by BMW before Rover went burst. The diesel engines in these bomb proof and very reliable unlike the K-series engines. 6 years ownership and travelled too many places including the Bevington tank museum and many shows, made quite few friend in the Rover cycle during meets and fixing cars. She met her fate how ever last yeah when she was scrapped, everything started going one after other couldn't' justify the cost so off it went.
  3. There getting pretty rare now not many on the road what so ever and slowly dying out. Same thing in the States and the rest of Europe, They were certainly eye catching and very sporty and race look. One of my favourite done too this was add the duel exhaust system complete stainless including manifolds, love the sound of this thing never gets old. 😉 Liking the cars mate. 😉
  4. Honestly I think they look brilliant at first glance I thought they were coated in shadow chrome.
  5. WOW Great snaps there pal, What the ST is all about, 😉 Have too se say love the wheels 🙂
  6. So glad too be part of the club as the saying goes its never too late 😉
  7. Nope its a Ford probe badges as a Ford but with a Mazda engine and gearbox but with a ford chassis body and interior design, This body of the car was meant too be the mustang back in the States as a replacement for there current model at the time, was originally meant too be a V8 engine, but with Auto alliance joint venture between ford and Mazda at the time, used the Mazda engine from the 626 and MX6. A US import, didn't quite get the same reaction here in the UK, plus the hardcore Ford Capri fans didn't really catch on as this in a way was a Capri MK3 and because of the styling well no one tuned a blind eye, Plus its a front wheel drive not Rear wheel drive like the Capri, if it was I reckon this would have been a winner back then. Still for those who love them like myself will still appreciate these cars for what they are 🙂 Great project build there pal, that's what I love seeing cars being build for purpose. 😉 Keeping going my friend 🙂
  8. Cheers for the recommendation by the sounds of it and readying about it well worth investing. Will make life so much easier trying diagnose rather then trying to 2nd guess most of the time. Might work with the probe as that's all Mazda and this should read Mazda engines as well, only problem OBD1 and a simple US style diagnostic box. Should still work if I Bridge the GND and TND terminals on the probe.
  9. Evening all got a question for you all here, thought be interesting. Out of all the cars you ever owned, which do you regret getting rid of the most? My dad replied either a Cortina Mk3 or a Ford Granada Mk1. me it would have too be my first Ford probe. Let's make it even more interesting shall we, out of the cars that you were offered in the past, which one of those of offers cars do you wish you took and bought. I was offered a Ford Granada for a £1000 pounds, it was Ghia and it was a 2.0 pinto block same as the Ford Sierra, lovely looking car and I'm big fan of the Ford Granada. Just wish I had more money and more time and I regret not jumping for it.
  10. Your right there modern just doesn't that that feel good factor that the 80's used too bring. I'm 90's lad myself 1991 great times and also my dad's days of tinkering with cars was really in his prime doing that back then. Classic Range Rovers P38's Jaguars XJ's and of course plenty of fords, when ever he was tinkering away you could here 60's 70's and 80's music on full blast. He had a soft spot for the Rolling stones and the Animals great tunes, we used too have a record player years ago, one day I thought I'd play some of his old record collection. That's when my music taste came from. Just listing too different things. You've taken me too memory lane a bit brilliant times really were.
  11. Gotter love 80's rock such as Alice copper/Magnum/Status Quo/ also do like my metal Slayer AC-DC Man of war/Iron Maiden I can go on all day lol. I'm still suing my retro CD player in the Ford so having too make CD's all the time lol. The whole front glove is full of CD's as soon you open they aa pop out lol.
  12. Now that's a beauty of a sight 😉 Trust me with how fast this years going they'll be a classic in no time.
  13. Its just a basic run of the mill OBD code reader not ford specific I'll keep you posted and I'll check it out, also been offered other engine as well for this. Would be handy as spares as its come from a running car and injectors all the sensors the lot. If all else fails I could go down that route.
  14. Had a fish chips part of my recovery after last night lol. Can't beat a proper chip shop and the size of the chips as well £2.25 well spent I say 😉
  15. What's everyone listening too when your driving along the way too your destinations. Been listening too this bad this week and my god its fantastic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dll3...=RDDll329ggLIY Been checking out there other materiel, Got too say its fantastic. Like my 60's 70's and 80's tunes. Also can' forget one of my favourites. 😉
