  1. No help at all with the query but very glad that they (in the second picture) chained the tank to the ground so that no one would steal it. 🤣
  2. Great pics! looks like a great day. Love the E-type in the second last pic - trying to figure out the military connection for it and finally concluded it comes from Her Majesty's Secret Service, 007 division. And yes I know he never drove a Jag - like that at least
  3. great pic! and smart to carry a 'spare' on the back in case you break down. 😅
  4. Just wondering if they are either pipe thread for some bizarre reason, or, if they had been torqued and the threads stretched?
  5. looks great! and I don't think it is possible to have too many pics! 👍

  7. was at a home show today and of all things there was a Vimy display (In Canada this is related to a massive tree planting project.

  10. that is really impressive! and done to a really high standard
  11. Not an MV expert but we do know from MG and British Leyland world that, as mentioned, the engines were painted green. However, the paint vat was just refilled and refilled and while green, the exact shade was not standardized. So, now we buy a standard shade from places like Moss motors but originally there would have been more variation - but all just green.
