Agreed. It's just not the same when it gets busy though. The sense of awe this place exudes comes from its remoteness. When you're out there, nobody around for miles, getting dark and zero phone...

Yes John, Glen Etive. We went as far as the road allows, up to the gate at the end. Wife and I went for a walk from there. Nobody else around, however we passed around 15 vehicles on the way along...

There are definitely worse places to spend your 'twilight' years Ben.

Pretty much anywhere above the Central Belt (apart from some parts of the East coast) is stunning in its beauty. Only down...

Managed to have a bit better look at the car this morning between rain showers, and it's actually in remarkable condition. A handful of nuts and bolts around the front of the engine bay...

Thanks.

Always quite sad to see it being driven off by the new owner. At least this time, I know the guy, so will no doubt still be seeing the car every now and then.

I still have the photos...

Many thanks.

I'm kind of in the same position myself. Along with the XJ6, which is to be my daily driver (in reality, once or twice per week!), I count myself lucky to also own a lovely 1992...

Hi Mike.

Yep...leaper is going. Shouldn't be on anything post '70s imo. Already have a bonnet badge ready to go on once I've removed the monstrosity and filled in the holes in my beautiful bonnet!...

😁 Never do a run without taking a photo or 10 John.

After some further thought, we'll probably head to Glenshee instead. Just as beautiful, but further away from the worst affected Covid hotspots!...

Just wanted to drop by one last time, to say my good-byes.

This immaculate XJ6 came up, and I couldn't turn it down. It's got the auto transmission, which is much better for my crumbling back and...

Never had a draw towards these. I feel they make the B4 too modern for my tastes. I prefer to hang around in the 'modern classic' bubble. The wheels on the car right now are ok, and I played with the...

I have a set of diamond cut 18" rims that used to be on my SL before moving to a set of polished 17" alloys. Both look great post refurb, but it definitely lead to me parking about a metre from the...

Cheers Mike.

They're nice wheels aren't they. Really suit these cars. I do like a diamond cut though 😍

P.S. Car running great. I think the temp sensor definitely did the trick👍

My mistake Mike. I'd never heard of MIM as a manufacturer until I googled it. Thought they were one and the same, but now know they're not. Set of MIM'S on eBay just now, but looks like fairly heavy...

Hi Dave,

There's a newly listed set appeared on eBay. Looks like they've been refurbished. A tad expensive I thought, although he is open to offers. Following your advice though, I can see that...

ET37 seems to be for the 'Speedline'.

Sorry John, what do you mean 'et37??' I was under the impression these were all et35.

I was definitely playing with the idea of getting the lip diamond cut, and a nice bright silver elsewhere....

I wouldn't know if the engine running or not would make any difference. Never had much to do with gearboxes, clutches etc. It's all a little 'Hoccus Poccus' to me as to how it all works.
