As of Saturday, the little Sunny Coupe is now legit;

Johnny Law will prove less a hassle

Which then lead to this…

Yeah, the tyre is a bit old and a bit flat, still.. it enjoyed going through the gravel sideways

The hand-brake works surprisingly well on the little bugger.  Obviously those wheels need changed as they’re ghastly and the height and suspension isn’t exactly pretty but the important part is sorted, the remainder can take place over how ever many months all the while it will provide me with adequate daily driving.  It will be interesting to see the consumption.  I hope it’s cheaper than the Cedric.


Those who know Richard on or the other forums he’s a member of, are likely to be aware of his KP61 Starlet, the project is in the middle of a rebuild, lots of work has already been done and a lot of parts have been accumulated.   Due to a move up country, it’s no longer receiving the attention it requires and the time has come for it to be sold.  If you’re into Starlet’s and want one that’s not been destroyed by retards then this car is for you.

Buy me!

Yes, it is that car.  That’s not a sample picture and that’s BEFORE it was getting some more things tidied up on it.  For more information on the car you can check out the build thread and to see comes with, the for sale thread on

Alternatively, keep reading… (more…)

For those interested in the 70′s ShellSport series, there’s a pretty interesting thread on “The Roaring Season” forums about it that I’m sure you will find as amazing to read and look through as I did.  I’ll be keeping tabs on it, for sure!

Love this video, it made my day.  Cheers Mr Vintage Grumble, you sir are a gentleman.



Long time no update from me. I’ve recently started a new job and as such am no longer behind a computer screen for 90% of my day. The up side of this is that I will in the not too distant future, have the cash to get shit done on my projects. First port of call though, was getting my hopeful daily (the KPB310) sorted for it’s next attempt at a Warrant of Fitness.

You may remember the state of it.

Thankfully, I have a very nice and understanding panel-beater who sorted that side of it and will let me pay on my first full payday (which is now monthly).

The result of their labour is as follows;

The rust, it be gone! RHS Inner Guard

Obviously, I need to cover it up again but it needs to be visible as being done for when I take it for a warrant again, so they’re aware that I care.  Hah.

They found another little area that needed sorted, so did that too.

The patch you can see on the right hand side of the above photo was showing through as half a dozen tiny pinholes on the strut tower on the engine bay side, with it cut out, the rust sandwiched between the two panels was quite noticable indeed and I’m glad it was found and sorted.  Nothing quite like an eagle eyed panel beater who cares.

With that done, I sorted the hinges that needed done, or at least the driver’s side…  I will get on to the passenger’s side if need be, though the use it will get is minimal regardless.  Once it’s legit again, I’ll keep a casual eye out for some wheels, sort the ride height and just daily the living fuck out of it whilst putting all my pennies to the 110-Project, because let’s be honest, that’s the car that deserves it.
