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...
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...
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.

It is actually a 1962 Skylark...
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.
(I did try a search but 'dash' & 'cam' are...
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...
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...
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.
10 minutes later I had completed the process and all I need...
I only looked at this because the name caught my eye
but its amusing enough that I rather...
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.
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...
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.
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...

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?

This one looks well worth a look as one of the very earliest home market TCs. Does anyone recognise it?
Registered less than a month after the '66 Motor Show where UK TCs first became available!
Mot'd so you could drive it home (renew your...
