  1. Custom club decals?

    He's the go to guy.He'll do anything you need from small bits to,er,slightly more extravagant stuff..
  2. Number plate choices

    Yeah it was always usually the case you couldnt put a plate on a car to make it look 'newer' than the actual year of the car.
  3. Accident damage.

    Judging by the market,its not an unreasonable offer at all tbh mate.And yeah when you put down the approximate value of the vehicle when you insure it,it doesn't mean a lot in the event of a loss.Most policies will state clearly 'market value' unless you have agreed a valuation with them beforehand.personally i would try and agree a compromise with them and try to get nearer 1500 but if they dont then the original offer isnt bad anyway
  4. Write Off Valuation

    Thats right,you have to justify it by maybe finding similar cars for sale to show your car is worth more .you will only be insured up to market value,therefore the first offer you get will be likely the lowest example price for a similar condition car
  5. Three words:maintenance, maintenance, maintenance.Keep it tip top and it shouldnt be a problem.
  6. The Slug is Coming back.... Maybe.

    Hey Steve hopefully you'll be back then,hope you are all well
  7. Accident damage.

    Glad you're ok.Judging by the vw it was a reasonable hit,i would guess theres more damage beneath the plastics as Bryan suggests unfortunately.be surprised if not but in any case the car protected you which is all you can ask from a 16 year old motor
  8. What came in the Post Today?

    That's cracking,that.
  9. Yeah,it was the Greenlight chap that took the pics with effects on.Like this one with a monochrome background
  10. About time we had a summer pic,no?
  11. Very cool.We had some serious snow in Kent one year when I owned my ST205,was an absolute blast with the 4WD.Especially driving past stranded BMW's with a 'pssshhhhhh' and some four wheel drift on. (Had to be done)
  12. Club Calendar 2018 - CANCELLED

    Every cloud...! Thats the spirit
  13. Club Calendar 2018 - CANCELLED

    Yeah its a shame but just not enough to fill a calendar plus we have to prioritise at the moment.apologies to those who have sent some in.
  14. Club Calendar 2018 - CANCELLED

    Do it....Do it noowww! And as Dawn stated,if your car is pictured sat with your wheelie bin in the background and an empty drinks bottle on the roof,it wouldn't make a Banzai cover shot and it certainly won't be featured in the Calendar!
  15. No MoT for 40 Year Old Cars

    I got 10 years to go and counting....
  16. Red or Orange Gen1 Celica

    You know what..I've always been an advocate of red cars.But done right orange looks pretty awesome,so I've gone for that ,the pic you put up looks pretty legendary so yeah get the Jaffa paint code on
  17. Celica return?

    Amen to that. I won't hold my breath..
  18. Which Gearbox Should I Choose?

    IF you can be sure the refurb is properly done,then I'd go with that.Risk percentage of poker ,less variables with the refurb'd one rather than one that supposedly has lower miles but has more variables of risk involved as you are only relying on someone's word,plus it might be alright now but put some miles on it and the older parts will start to react to the extra wear. If you develop a problem with the refurb,at least you may have a chance of some recompense with the company that did it,if the other one fails then you're looking at another refurb anyway,and you've already paid for one.
  19. Toyota Toys

    I like a splitter on the old gens.As long as its not toooo Bosozoku stylee,but saying that there's a middle ground that can be found http://www.speedhunters.com/2017/07/bosozokus-perfect-muscle-car/ outrageous on this liftback BUT is pretty f**** cool
  20. My @200 bhp BEAMS -ST162 Gen4, ("CJN").....with its big brother next door..Steve G's ST165 GT4 @ 370bhp: ("Betsy") Wings and Wheels show,Dunsfold Park. Badass Gen4s
  21. GA61 investment?

    MA61's are a pukka looking car,and a little under appreciated IMO. Great shape.Steve C has his metallic blue over silver which is sweet. (Auto ) Darryl who frequents the TEC and whom I know mainly because he happened to be a mate of my brother in law (small world) ,has a mint car or two,his silver MA was at Beaulieu.They're one of the rare cars that I wouldn't worry about changing the wheels on either,they look really good.
  22. GA61 investment?

    Surjit's car is pretty damn immense.Had a new paint job not long ago too,looks peachy
