You're the second person I know with this problem in such a short space of time. I'll keep my eye out for some alloys to become center donors

i thought it looked a time consuming job >:(, have a look if you can please and let me know thanks, having to use the key and the emblem cover is on borrowed time!!

I'll have a dig around in the next few days. I'm pretty sure I saw one the other day, where I put it is the question...

I've got one kicking about somewhere, if not I'm fairly sure there's still one in the spares car. Bit of a pain to fit... rear seats out, drivers seat out, carpet lifted and rear plastics out. I can assist if you like.

National Shows / JAE 2019

Hi guys,

Considering organising a plot for Japanese Auto Extravaganza this yeah. Who would be interested in a 4 day weekend?

Dates are 8th-11th August and it's held at the Norfolk Showground near Norwich. May be a bit of a trek for some but I'm up for a 4hr drive.

I'm currently waiting on hearing back about plot availability, but once I confirm a plot, 5 tickets must be ordered within a short time after the purchase, so that I can keep the plot.

JAE is the largest Japanese car show in the UK, which caters for all sorts of Japanese cars,  be them standard, modified or even brand new. There's plenty of variety - so let's get our name out there!

Full weekend tickets, including camping, are 35.

Who's interested?

Distinctive by the aftermarket alloys. There's a few on the BBU batch. Keep us posted how you get on.

Looking very clean. I remember seeing this one for sale some years ago now. If I remember rightly it was pretty low miles at the time... maybe in the 60s?

Lost Cause could probably confirm, but maybe the use of some fuel additive (cataclean or similar) may also help? Renewal of spark plugs and a full tank of the ultimate fuel instead of regular... sometimes these things clean it out a bit.

Gave him a wash this afternoon before heading out to the coast for some dinner.

It's been a while getting round to it for sure... time flies..

So, through the house move this little gem was placed on a friend's driveway, where it became a bit of an ornament. Certainly got a bit grubby sitting there barely seeing sunlight. It got to a stage where my friend would mention this from time to time, so I decided enough was enough and got him in for the work I knew would need carrying out before he could have a years raadworthyness certificate.

So in he goes.

I had the drive shaft sorted out so that the ABS ring was present once again. I took it to the chap who does all the maintenance on the cabs,  as I knew he would do a good job and not rob me.

For the ticket, all that was needed was a will end welding and the headlight bulb plugging back in - which is weird as it worked before he took it for the test.

But, once insured and taxed I brought him back to my new place and got cracking with the polish...

I've also put a brand new emblem on the back...

And purchased a replica dealer sticker too. Thankfully Bill Allen was already in their inventory, that is the dealership this one came from.

More to come in a few weeks, as we are off on an outing...  ;D

Wow. It's been quite some time since updates on old Polly have sprung up, so I best get you up to date.

Last year, after a mishap with a falling branch from a tree, she became in need of a new windscreen and gained a dent in the bonnet. This coupled with a house move, acquisition of another two cars and job change, saw her going into hibernation at the farm.

Sadly she came out of it a little rough. Not just through the mouldy seats and steering wheel due to a water leak into the boot, but also the clutch was slipping badly. Now in 3rd, 4th and 5th gears there's a rattle sort of noise on acceleration. I think it's time for a new gearbox. So... She needs...

New gearbox and clutch
Service (Full)
New windscreen
Rust repairs
Exhaust re-joining/aligning
Possibly discs and pads
Drivers door and wing aligning correctly (still from the accident in 2017)

I'm at a loose end as to what to do. I've driven her a bit lately to try and figure in my mind if I can give up on her. She's nearing 218k on the clock and really, never put a wheel turn wrong until now. I guess time will tell. Currently this is how she sits on the TSW Hockenheims.

From what I'm gathering from the current owner, they would be looking around the 2000 mark. There is a white ST on eBay at the moment asking 2,450 for 24000 miles. So with that in mind it would be up to you what kind of figure you could do.

Also, if it makes any odds to you, should fuel and a train fare home be catered for by yourselves, I don't mind delivering the car to you as it isn't overly far away from me.

Don't get me wrong, she's showing signs of pain now. Particularly gearbox but she's recently been laid up for a few months on a farm which probably didn't do her any good.

CLDJ has kept hers in daily use since she bought it 20 years ago... 208000 and I drove it the other day, runs like a dream.

Wow, wasn't petrol expensive in 2012 😲. I've still got my password in 2019 and it's still going strong. I'll test my mpg next time I fill up and update you soon. (The car has just under 100000 miles on it at the mo as opposed to 77000 in 2012)

Welcome back 6pac. I've calculated mine in my daily (now at 217000) and I'm usually in late 40a. Most I've managed is 49.9, probably shouldn't have done two clicks at the pump! So annoyed I didn't crack 50. Probably my driving style but that 49 was a mix of country, motorway and town miles.

Yea I found some of those photos lurking around too, as well as the ones from the next day when we switched over all the bits from my old write off - good times! I'll get around to it one of these days. I was at my parents' the other day and it's looking a bit sorry for itself at the moment (it has green stuff growing on it at the moment :( ).

Do something before it's too late. When it's too late I'll give you 50 for it.
