You didn’t know Merc did a 1 litre C class? You know now.
Not many know of this, especially as the number built has halved over the years. One of the two was scrapped, thus making the remaining one rather more valuable.
But once everywhere. A Cortina 1.6L. The model is significant.
It’s just as well that this intimidating character won Overall Champion in class, because I wouldn’t like to meet him had he lost.
Oooh, another Alfa day!
Crankshaft position sensor, as so (old one shown):
MG Midget, as seen from a Micra.
Time for an Alfa! How exciting is this? Not very, truth be told.
In very slow stages.
Anything for today? I’m sure there must be something very small and usually Polish....
Citroen C15 van with temporary living accommodation glued on the back.
Vauxhall Cresta PC complete with fuel guzzling 3.3 engine. Yes, that’s rust bubbling away just to the right of the LH light. I’m told that it’s essentially a slightly smaller version of the Chevrolet Impala of the period and for most of its life was available with a two speed (yes, two! ) automatic box as an option.
I had successfully forgotten that this ever existed. Can’t say as though I miss it.

Time for something small and Dutch.
Time for the Peugeot 506!
Yet another day with a PSA connection et pourquoi pas?
I really like starting by hand, provided it’s not me doing it of course.
