  1. Quite a lot of theft is opportunistic. Park close to a car that doesn't have much protection.
  2. More people are driving again after a big drop. To cope, production was dropped too but it hasn't caught up AFAICT.
  3. That seems just what the POR-15 sealer mentioned in the link by digs does.
  4. Classic Car world has some nice pointers: https://classicsworld.co.uk/guides/e10-fuel-a-classic-owners-guide/ Key snippet:
  5. Write an angry email to Toyota USA, tell them their PR is wrong. Maybe they'll offer you a job.
  6. Perhaps with the caveat of being available in the US? https://pressroom.toyota.com/company-history/ makes no mention of some of the sportier models.
  7. Renault have a similar scheme, except you can get stickers for reaching 150, 200 and 300 miles.
  8. It might take significantly less time with good access and having all the tools you need available, as well as some guidance? Alternatively, get the kids to do it, you'll not need to jack up the car quite so high.
  9. I remember a few years ago there were some community type garages that basically allowed you to use lifts and tools, like workshops for rent. Are they still a thing? And could you use that for this? Maybe I'm an old man these days, but a lift would seem great for this kind of thing.
  10. I once ate some cake baked by Ian Hislop.
  11. I've got a 3D printed part on my Legacy. It's quite useful but you need to make sure that the right material is used, for instance petrol & oil resistant if it goes anywhere near. The bigger problem is getting an STL file of the part you want made.
  12. It varies as there's no official definitions: https://www.torquecars.com/tuning/tuning-stages.php
  13. If you are looking to get sell them, I can see two trains of thought: Sell with the very clear disclaimer that they need some work and may not be safe as is, or; For safety's sake, fix them knowing it will most likely not be very profitable. In the latter case, you might get more money in total by scrapping them. Dunno, get a quote.
  14. They look round-ish to me? https://www.liveabout.com/wheel-straightening-3234509
  15. Equally having a car just sat there doesn't make much sense either.
  16. Well, you are an expert on small things.
  17. Did you check the geography of the British Isles lately?
  18. Celica owners are weird like that. Subaru owners would never do such a thing.
  19. An NVIDIA 2070. Spent the last two days trying to update Windows 10 to a point where I can even install the sodding drivers.
  20. I'd always prefer to buy on condition rather than mileage. The GT4 I had managed nearly 200k and was still a great example and that's with a turbo and 4WD. But as above, I'd not get an AT200, I'd go for an ST202 instead. The extra 200cc buys you more power, more reliability and when driven somewhat carefully will deliver the same mpg.
