    Pendelican White - an idle thought.

    Just an idle query about this paint colour - does anyone know where the name, used in the 76-ish production era, comes from? It appears to be the only paint name in Rudiger's listing that is 'invented'. A Google search produces only Rover references, other than as a family name when shorn of...

    Rover to the rescue

    First frost of the month this morning and the Mitsubishi wasn't going anywhere -battery flat as the proverbial! So - jump on pushbike, cut across town to garage where Jumbo (1967 2000TC) was sleeping, fairly prolonged cranking but then rumbles into healthy life. Drive back home, jump Mitsu and...

    V8 ancestor worship anyone?

    Are there any fans of "our" V8 engine looking for a winter project? The engine in its original format in its original (somewhat tatty) body. Would make a striking summer cruiser to attend P6 events! But hurry, the auction is this Saturday. 1964 Buick Convertible It is actually a 1962 Skylark...

    Dash Cam Pointers?

    I know there are many Forum members using Dash Cams and am intending to join their number, so can anyone make recommendations as to particular models? I'm a bit of a technophobe so 'the simpler the better' would have considerable appeal. Thanks John (I did try a search but 'dash' & 'cam' are...

    Further Laminated/Toughened query . .Monte Carlo Wedgie

    When I was peripherially involved in off-road Motorsports in the 80/90s, laminated windscreens were mandatory (ignoring polycarbonate). However the photo of Ranald White's ever-improving Monte Carlo Rallye P6 on page 13 of the Spring issue of Driving Force clearly shows the stress patterning...

    Autocross P6 ??

    Back in the day, about 30 years ago, I was a circuit marshal - mainly on Autocross and Rallycross events in the South and East of England. I was principally interested in/involved with Escorts and Minis but I can recall a P6 leaping around like a mad thing. The front wings, both outer and...

    Thumbs up to DVLA! Cherished number retention.

    I've been running my '67 TC with a cherished number RTA 666, but I have to sell the car. (Arthritis in ankle means I have to drive auto now) I duly logged on to the DVLA website to discover what I needed to do to retain the plate. Wow! 10 minutes later I had completed the process and all I need...

    City grey 67, with sunroof

    For Sale (1967) on Car And Classic UK [C753339] This looks rather nice, does the Forum know it? Reasonable asking price for a trade sale if it is anywhere near as good as it seems. John

    gator grip ?

    Has anyone on the Forum any experience of the Gator Grip socket marketed by various tool suppliers? I have considerable doubts about it - it looks like a good way of finally rounding off the remains of a butchered bolt head, but you never know . . . Someone on here must have been tempted. John

    P6 Club Subs the Easy Way!

    I picked up my new issue of Driving Force and out slid the Membership Subs reminder sheet from Brian Humphreys. I set it to one side for later attention -as you do - and continued reading. Lo and behold, on the Editors page is a mention of paying on-line by direct debit so, ever one for the easy...

    Nenette Brush - any users here?

    I came across an advert for a Nenette brush/mop, an item I hadn't seen Dad had one back in the 50s. I can't ask him as he's long gone (not suprising, Victoria was on the throne when he was born), but do any Forumites use a Nenette and find it satisfactory?

    No real connection to P6s but I wanted to give the NHS a thumbs-up. Last Tuesday I saw my GP because I had chronic insomnia and asked him to prescribe to sleeping tablets. He asked me a few questions, one of which reminded me that if I did manage to doze off, I would wake up breathless. Is that...

    Hazard Lights on '67 TC?

    My early 2000TC does not have Hazard Lights - but I wish it did! I've tried to find info in this section of the forum on retro-fitting them, preferably incorporating them into the existing set-up, but without success. I'm sure someone has done it - can anyone point me to a relevant post, or...

    Buick Special - and rather nice ... 35e022270c More or less a generic US mid-size saloon of the 60s but powered by an engine with a long potential ahead of it. Mid-size maybe, but it'd make a P6B look very compact - anyone envy all that boot (sorry, trunk) space?
