They’re all around us Peter, go, but stay alert and defend your personal space.

I'm thinking of starting a company making clown trousers with a 2-metre hula-hoop sewn in to the waistband. Do we think that would be a go-er?

Re: setting rear IRS camber

Well done Simon. I never checked mine, Gerry said use the same shims from the IRS I used off an XJS. Once I get my hubs back I will check and see what it is, always felt planted though so can’t be far off. Stu I am assuming you numbers are how they should be?

Re: Jag IRS "clunk"

I’ve just taken my rear hubs into Classic Renovation to replace the hub bearings and possible UJs. I had movement in the wheel but no clunk. These hubs have only done 5k Miles so I can only think the Jag specialist didn’t set them up right! I would have sent to Ed but he is a long way from me! Good ...

Scottish road trip 2021!

Hello All I am looking for interest in a Scottish tour next year. The tour in 2019 was blessed, mostly, by great weather when we went in September. In normal years I would suggest May or September as the best times for weather and mostly tourist free roads. With all the cancelled events carried over...

Re: Prop shaft speedo induction sender on jag rear end

HI Jerry My high tensile prop bolts I bought off the shelf failed IVA because of not enough thread showing past the nut. I replaced with Jag bolts which I discovered are tapered and self centred. This is to help insure they stay balanced. So from my point of view it was a great catch by the IVA insp...

Re: De Tomaso and Shelby in partnership

I have to say there is nothing to like about that car. My eye was drawn to the line of Astons behind it - now that a great looking car!
