  1. A new car magazine - by me.

    I have been called brave, stupid and financially irresponsible. I have also been called a twat (thanks, Noel Edmonds). But I feel there is still a market for an interesting car magazine, one free of watch adverts and supercar waffle, with a MotorPunk kind of flavour. Here it is - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bodgesballsupsbook/motorpunk-a-unique-motoring-magazine-published-qua?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=motorpunk If I can turn a small % of our online readers into buyers of our new magazine, I will be a very happy chap. Here's hoping.
  2. Brabham Are Trying To Crowd Fund Their Way Back To F1

    What happened to the money people invested in that, I wonder?
  3. 2002 996.2 3.6 Coupe

    I hope so. Each time I get excited by the idea of a 996, I read something about reliability that puts me off. Good luck Says the Alfa Romeo owner. PS - Lavender x
  4. Post a pic of your car

    I'm watching the prices of the earlier Evoras, they look like great value to me - £25k for this - https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201712091946451?onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&advertising-location=at_cars&postcode=le54eh&sort=price-asc&radius=1500&make=LOTUS&model=EVORA&page=1 Very tempting! (That's not my postcoode on AT BTW!)
  5. Post a pic of your car

    That Evora is bloody lovely. Silver wheels for me, though, please. Sorry to hear your sad news, btw.
  6. Land Rover Evoque recall

    http://www.motorpunk.co.uk/articles/evoque-recall-faulty-banksman/ (Happy christmas, one and all)
  7. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    So; petrol, roomy(ish), £8k, one to keep, right? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-E39-M5-LONG-MOT-FULL-SERVICE-HISTORY/322942528638?hash=item4b30dfec7e:g:cYIAAOSw-K9ZNR4b I'm rubbish at sensible suggestions. Keep the S Max and give it the occasional thrashing to keep the diesel thingies healthy?
  8. The new TVR Griffith

    I had a good look up close at the TVR at the weekend. Has no-one pointed out that one door is a different shade of red to the rest of the rear 3/4 panel? That aside, it looked very very well put together, much better than TVR of old. I was very impressed. I hope they're a great success. Patently is busy elsewhere online, I see.
  9. The Stamford Car Show

    I was there too. Some really cool stuff but some utterly pointless cars too - Citroen Xantia - why?! Pea green elan was pretty.
  10. Golf Gti Remapped to death for fun

    With massive thanks to Shark Performance for being good sports;
  11. Unusual holiday destinations (picture heavy!)

    Balls, thanks anyway Burble

    Photobucket upgrade error message means I can't see your pics!
  13. Taxi!!!!

    A new car factory, opened in the Midlands?! I salute them!
  14. Hmmmmm

    Is your Impreza alive, Tipex? Agree on classic prices, look at utter dogshit like the mk3 Ford Escort now selling for daft money. Panda 100 looks ace, the Abarth 500 is down to c.£5k now and is massive fun.
  15. Hmmmmm

    Go on. How much? Back to the 924 - They're cracking fun to drive but with soooo many made, even special edition stuff like the Le Mans edition isn't worth much. Sure, they'll appreciate, but so will everything else from that era it seems. Tipex, you poof, drive one (hard) and you'll get the bug.
