Ok chaps. Here's a puzzler.While stripping out the original Ford steering column, I noticed a plug onto a spade mounted on the top of the column. Thought no more of it until of course, I was bolting…Continue

Hi folks,As you've all seen pictures of the £500 Autotest Phaeton, you'll probably have noticed that the black gelcoat has had a hard life and is in need of some TLC. Steve had a quick go with some…Continue

750MC January Autotest, 08/01/17

Evening chaps,Just a quick report from the weekend. Well, I drove like a complete tube. Out of 9 competitors the only guys I beat were the two complete novices that I chucked into the Dutton, and one of them was bloody close to making me look bad. On the plus side, the modifications have cost me a feckin' fortune, but have obviously been worth it. The fact that someone could just jump into a car with no experience and run me close shows how much more compliant the car is now. It's going to take…See More

Just a few photos of where we're at with the Phaeton upgrades....

Adjustable bottom arms, all modded with brackets and looking saucy. Unfortunately, however, the rose joint inner races are 1/2" and the existing bolts are 7/16", so I need to drill out the bolt holes and fit 1/2"…

I hate to say this, but I actually have pictures of a Melos being hillclimbed at Wiscombe park and it did OK as well.

Good to see Duttons being used and abused :-)) I hope none of you park up like that !

Looks a fair buy  Roy, Nick, down here in God's country, does a fair bit of auto testing in his Dutton's, with a fair degree of success,

Roy has the short hardtop for the S3/4, the other type is a 'shooting brake/estate' which makes it into a hatchback by dispensing with the bootlid and covering the space with a rear lift back.

Hi! Roy nice to see another car up hear, what's the plan?

Looks like your going for fun big time Roy , There's an old washer woman called Alfie not far from you

Looks like it has the makings of a nice car Roy.  Mine was barn stored for 9 years before I bought it- great for keeping the body and chassis in good condition, but I found the worlds biggest mouse nest in it ( luckily empty ) and half the wiring eaten away.  You have the advantage of an early registration , so tax free - mine is on a Q plate - registered 1989

So this is it guys. Been stood for three years so needs some re-commissioning, not to mention a damned good wash and de-mossing! Already started getting the knackered engine out but the lighting in the workshop is rubbish, so had to call a halt for today. Hopefully more fun this weekend.
