Damn right as in that's what everyone wants.  I tried my hardest to find a knackered Trident in a damp garage for 50 quid.

Well that never happened.  If it's meant to be it's meant to be.  Good luck dear boy!

I live very close to Stanmore where many tridents were sold from the infamous two strokes of Stanmore.One would think there must be one tucked away in a shed/lock up but where do you start to locate them if there are any left.I'm having some flyers made to go in the local post office/newsagent window and hope some old lady/gent will read it and get it touch

Not such a stupid idea. I would suggest Wadebridge etc as prime Bubble stash areas. Quite a few cars have come from there. Without being class bigoted the working class areas yield but less than the upper working class and middleclass areas as the latter could afford to mothball vehicles rather than sell them. I got a nice few cars from a guy with a rambling place next to Thorpe Park gravel pits. You would not know the land was there let alone sheds of cars. He was clearing to sell off land for development otherwise he probobly would have kept the stuff. It is out there it is finding the key to unlock the opertunity. Best of all is drive a Microcar and get noticed!

Not to mention the lack of proper capitalization at the beginning of sentences.  ;)

Restauration is the correct term for the careful and polite delivery of occasional snacks and light refreshments to the valiant engineer by their other half during the course of a restoration.

We have the luxury of a spell check with our forum too but not all use it, I'm just as guilty! I shouldnt worry about the folk across the pond Richard, you should have a look at the IsettaWorld forum and see how they worry about their TIRES and what COLOR to paint the cars.  ;) ;)

This  is probably a question for Jim, but if I write in UK English the spell checker will correct my spelling to UK standard spellings. Does this mean that if our US cousins use the same facility on the forum it corrects their spellings to UK English as well, or does it correct it to US English spellings?

Does this also mean that it will also correct our French neighbours spellings to UK English?

What a shame if everything was to be standardised to UK English, it would be no fun reading the items and trying to guess what is being conveyed.

Should we have seperate spelling buttons for UK English, US English and Allow Allow (french translation) English.

You may have to explain the "injuns" thing Richard else people will think I'm some kind of racist.
