    Earlier this year I pulled it out the garage, gave it a wash and towed it to the local car show alongside my vauxhall. Me and my mates got quite a line going tucked out the back of the show. Hopefully more next year

  5. project discussion for my dormant triumph
  6. This time last year while overseas this triumph popped up for sale in the middle of richmond, luckily no one else seemed to be interested in it (must mean something) and i managed to get the guy to wait till I got back and could check it out. Went and saw it, was pretty tidy, rust free, straight and complete with the 2L manual overdrive. Downside, plates had lapsed after the motor supposedly seized and he stopped driving it. I didn't even bother checking the engine due to having some at home, and came back the next day with my trailer, Left quite quick before he could decide he sold it too cheap and on the way home passed a mates house and we decided to try start it. Appeared to turn over quite freely, and with some fuel i managed to get it running, but didn't run all that well. no brakes or clutch, and sounded pretty sad. Took it home as you do, put it in the garage and not much has happened since, would ideally like to drop a 2.5S engine i have from mk2 in it and get it back on the road looking original

    So upon going back to the old guys house i originally brought it off, turns out he had another one in front of the container in the first photo on this thread, Got shift and lift to carry it over the 40ft container next to his house where it sat for years and i was away! 1969, original black plates, reg on hold, huge external sun visor, great chrome. all the extras at the time, unfortunately the paint has seen better days and the motor and box is gone, might try rip into it one day but in the meantime I've got it at my yard waiting lol

  13. Discussion for my cresta
  14. So I got this Pc cresta locally, remembered seeing it sitting on blocks in a driveway a few streets away from my place, and recognised it as the car I used to see outside a local pie shop each day. Looked like it had sat a while now and was starting to turn green, and rusty. Knocked on the door, the owner (former pie maker) stopped using it when the business closed down and it sat since. long story short i brought it about a month later. Reg still on hold, was pretty tidy under the slime and grime, filled to the roof with clothes and all sorts. Took a day at his emptying it out, airing it out, trying to get it started and getting it back on the ground. Never got it started, was a bit brewed up, coil looked shot, distributor hadn't been sitting in the engine and it was generally bro'd up under the bonnet. flat towed it home being so close, brakes seemed to work okay considering how long it sat, managed to get it running, had an immobiliser and some wires had corrodded under the dash due to the amount of clothes and moisture in the car. Ran okay, took a bit of tuning and some new plugs fuel and the basics, took it for a drive round the block, guy i brought it off slapped a 4 speed bedford box in it, a fairy rinsed one too, no second gear and the gearstick was too big to get into first, kept hitting the dash. changed the gearstick and it was driveable. Since then I washed it, took it for a wof, fixed the various things it needed, one being the rust in the left rear quarter, got it cut out and painted.
