    Three Thousand Five

    Why do people put such a nasty looking CD player in a car such as this? At least try to getting something period looking plus with the V8 why would you need a radio?!

    I'm going out on a limb and say some sort of Mazda, wheel trims certainly have a Japanese look to them.

    Auto Express' Top 50 all-time greatest British-built cars

    My dad had a couple of Heralds, a 1200 and a 1360. A couple of weeks before we were due to go to Dawlish for annual holiday, about 1975, the rear subframe or something went. At the top of our road was a small factory that built metal tanks, still there as it happens, and they offered to...

    Charlotte slumbering amongst everyday detritus. I’d decided at the beginning of the year not to do many car shows so be careful what you wish for! And a belated happy birthday, mrtask.

    Thanks for the reassurance guys, I’ll just keep checking it before I take it out. Had something similar a long time back with a Cortina Mk 4 2.0GL, went to a Rover garage (!) in Blackburn, got back to car to find it sitting in a pool of coolant, topped it up and it never lost any again, very...

    Last weekend I got the car out the garage, topped up the PAS reservoir, turned the wheel from side to side and even ventured round the block, no loss of fluid!?!? How is that possible?? Mick

    Thanks, guys, just wondering if there was something obvious to check, hadn’t started car in a few weeks. Am I right in thinking it just uses ATF, any one in particular?

    I need to find the source of a PAS fluid leak, moved the car just before Christmas and discovered a puddle round nearside front wheel, any quick suggestions as to what to look for? Ta, Mick

    Warning light

    Thanks, Harvey & Tom, I’ll have a look at your suggestions tomorrow, weather permitting. Oil pressure light works ok, the choke warning light was removed a couple of years ago during the “sorting it out” period. Mick
