Hi all , I recently bought this but I've just decided against fitting it, having suddenly decided I like L cloth on later cars. Paid £250 for it, would like the same back really but do need it gone by end of May. Thanks. Kevin
with winter having returned in last 3 days, all over Germany - even here in the Rhein Valley Sud, I'm glad that I didn't get around to changing tires on winter (goldgrey) kC...changing winter tires to summer tires... nor get around to deregistering that winter kC, to park in a dry place - until next winter, leaving on winter tires. Nor to register summer kC (nero), which has always had only summer tires.
You don't really want to know why we have 2 quite nice kC.
Speaking kappa: German Language "Motor Classic Magazine" daughter, "Youngtimer Magazine", April Edition praised kappa in a 5cyl 4 door comp-test....dropping terms -in German- like "fine wood dash bits" (not true, they are plastic-wood, very nice plastic-wood though; 'no engine noise at low rpm - Ferrari Engine Excited mulit-valve Sounds after accelerating to over 5000 RPM' - both of which are true & rather nice to not hear or to hear, depending on rpm. NOTE: I seldom get over 5000 rpm; "timeless design in a pininfarina vein" - which I'm not sure is true at all nor do I care if it is true or not. I agree that the SWB kC is off-balance front to rear; but my of my doesn't it have a big-boot/trunk. 2.4 kappa beats lower HP 2.2 Audi CE 4wd & (Porsche Engined) higher HP 2.8 Volvo Turbo.
Speaking p'farina...yes, I still enjoy (on dry days) a drive in our gC. It is still not so popular with a certain "other". It is now at Brians shop; he who cringes when he see me arriving in yet another Lance that he has never seen nor worked on before. It is 'in' for routine matters. Brian Dornmüller - Thorn-Grinder translated to English - told me to get the plugs; oil-filter; anti-freeze of my choice.
?'s: Am I still OK with NGK 2912 BP8ES Plugs ? What is the latest consensus on Oil-Fllter & Green Cooling-Fluid & a Water Additive ?; which are offered by several German Manufacturers &/or Importers on Line.
I want to be 'on the money' at the upcoming gamma NL Meeting; so 'my' gC will also go to Leather Shop to have front left seat soon looking as good as the front right & rear seat; which are unused.
NOTE: next Monday is register / deregister kC day ! gC stays registered
Hi all , I've now got Derek Gorman's old Coupe MOT'd and ready for it's next enthusiast owner. It's a really very nice car and I did consider selling Tony Hadley and taking Derek's car on as it is so straight bodily and the engine sounds wonderful, but I've grown to love old Tone so this car has to go. Spread the word if anyone is after a car with history and plenty of potential to become one of the best. Thanks.
