    Round the corner from me. No idea what I’d do with it though.

    I want the answer and i want it NOW.........

    Industrial quantities of plus gas, marvellous stuff. And a huge torque bar. I nearly took my head off getting a BB out of a sex one when it finally decided to move. Oh, and swearing. Lots and lots of swearing.

    Dream garage / Dream shed / Dream cupboard.

    @Obtrusch - ducktail would suggest an RS? 🥰🥰🥰 Any more pics please as that is lovely. On my list of "cars that I want which will actually fit in my garage"

    Dream garage / Dream shed / Dream cupboard.

    @Joe*Pro that is a bit tight, but a clever solution. Guess Mrs. JP will be exiting the vehicle dukes of hazzard style! Mine is too wide for the garage door - rather annoying as my preference was it was tucked up at night rather than getting covered in sap and sat there on show. It's double...

    Dream garage / Dream shed / Dream cupboard.

    Signing in for inspiration. Plenty of that so far :) I seem to be one of those strange people who actually puts their car in the garage (except my current daily doesn't fit, which is my excuse for something silly that does fit...)

    Found that annoying little creak today

    Barn find - Funk Pro comp '91 (?)

    Wow. I need to spend more time in barns if that's what you can find :) Always loved a funk, and as a kid I lusted after a local one that was polished with a massive dose of purple-itis. Well, it was the 90's.... Presumably you've seen this...

    A Netflix build special… (JMC Replica)

    Checking into the thread, which I've really enjoyed reading - quite the pursuit of perfection. Massive JMC fan here and I reckon we're probably the same age - lots of familiar posters and a bedroom wall that could have been taken out of my parents house. For me Dirt was peak MTB, before it...

    1998 P7 - Retro British Kit Build SS

    It’s only the current palette I’m afraid. I thought this was going to be “whiter” but really pleased with the colour.
