General Forum / What goes on behind closed doors?
« on: May 04, 2022, 17:45:51 »
Why is it we have stopped getting Council Meeting minutes/updates in Action?

I mean Action is full of ruddy adverts, maybe it would be nice to have a couple of pages to know what's going on with the club.



I  have 2  x 16 inch AC wheels these have been shot blasted and sprayed in the AC light green, both have tubed 175 radial tyres with loads of tread as only done about 2000 miles. I would like around £90. There is also one more 16 inch wheel that needs blasting but is in very good overall condition free of charge.

I am going to list these on Ebay as well.

General Forum / Tis a shame shame shame!

That no-one from the club committee did not post a Xmas or New Year message.

Maybe they do not consider the Forum worthy!

To think they want to attract new members ::)

Well Happy New Year.


General Forum / This months Classic and Sports Car is full of Cobra's

Not my cup of cha but all good cars. Too pumped up for my liking.

Still to each his own.

Happy new year.


General Discussion / Have a Merry Christmas

Hi all

Have a good one and a Happy New Year.

Keep them wheels a turning and motors running.

Stay safe and well



So my pile of bits are nearly complete.

so far my pile consists of:

Mk2 Jaguar rear axle with 3.7 diff. The beauty of this axle is I can go LSD at a later date if needed.

XJ6 rear calipers.

Greenstuff pads.

Later spec 2 litre rear springs. These are to be modified once I decide on ride height.

Landrover discovery vented front discs 298mm.

Landrover matching Calipers.

Green stuff pads.

Later spec front springs.  Again will be modified once I have decided on ride height.

I was going to modify rear axle to 4 link but that would reduce the points count for the DVLA to retain VHI. I am going to be down to 9 as it is.

Once I start shortly I will post pics as I go.

Cheers Guys.

Not suggesting anything but this one although diff reg no. looks very much like the latest one on Ebay as per my earlier post. Especially when you look at the ding in the front passenger wing and the slight creasing to the top part of the passenger wing. Also both missing the rubber rear wing guards and the tyres look Avons as well. Nuff said.

I am I disbeliever in coincidence?

Here's the link to the other.

Vintage, PVT & 2 Litre Forum / Another 2 litre pops up on Ebay
« on: October 30, 2021, 18:52:36 »
Here's a link to another 2 litre saloon on Ebay.

Looks like a fair car but some work to do, paint a bit shabby, screen rubber surrounds need doing. Rear bumper will need doing, a few dings.

I've got no idea about the engine but if it is a barn find expect a bit of bother, gaskets etc.

Still would be a nice starter car for a younger member/ new member into classic AC's. We need to get more of these on the road.

Is this know to the club.


Check my other post re the 2 litre suspicious.

ACOC News and Events / Le Mans dates 2022 (at last)
« on: October 29, 2021, 17:54:16 »
I note that at last the dates have been released for 2022  Le Mans classic. These being 30th June to 3rd July.

Lets hope the dreaded Covid does not come back and stop it again.

I assume the club will be attending.


Ace, Aceca & Greyhound Forum / 1 1/4 inlet manifolds for ac engine
« on: October 28, 2021, 18:23:04 »
Just seen these on ebay he has 3 of them listed individually. he states they are 1 1/4 so off of an ace or very late saloon.

Have a look


Here is the link to this lovely car, it seems to be a very low price but as with auction sites I hope this is a come and buy me price. Surely this car should fetch a higher price if not it is an ideal car for the younger/new AC enthusiast.

Get and look and encourage a younger/new  member go knows the club needs them.

Now I am off for a drive while it is dry and sunny down here in Kent.


Vintage, PVT & 2 Litre Forum / Another 2 Litre for sale
« on: July 19, 2021, 18:14:43 »
Here is another 2 Litre for sale, does not appear to be expensive. Not sure about the strange 2 tone paint scheme on the rear arches and scallop only.

Not sure when the 2 Litre became a 'Coupe'. :D

I think I have seen this car on the inter-web in the past.

Is this one known to the club.


Vintage, PVT & 2 Litre Forum / Been away and just catching up.
« on: June 17, 2021, 09:28:19 »
I have just returned from a couple of weeks away in the Ol' Girl, we completed just over 1500 miles in all around Suffolk and Lincolnshire.

Lovely weather and the Ol' Girl performed well, got a bit warm inside her when the heat rose, but her new air vents I fabricated for the footwells worked well blowing cool air inside once on the move (well as cool as was possible when it was hot outside) but at least some fresh air circulation.

The twin leading shoes brake  conversion along with the servo really make a hell of a difference, much better stopping and lighter braking effort needed (no more both feet on the pedal and praying).

I can seen clearly now at night with the LED conversion, makes the Ol' Girl at lot more night-time friendly (I can throw the night vision goggles away now).

The twin weber downdraft conversion on the Triumph engine worked extremely well, performance much enhanced as a MGB owner found out after tailgating me for a mile or two, I waved bye bye to him as he struggled to keep up (one just has to occasionally).

Had to grease up the Ol' Girls nipples while away, but I was extremely fortunate that the owner of one of the cottages we stayed at was a car lover and let me use his garage (well more like a ruddy barn). He had a lovely Jag Mk2 and a Sunbeam Rapier S2. He used to have a Triumph TR6 and told me of a supplier that made a Stainless manifold for him that performed well (might look him up)

Yep I know most of you are not interested in the Triumph engine in the Ol' Girl but I like it and the reliability and performance.

I see that the Sprint is in September with the National the same weekend, I hope to make one or both, but again we return from another break away in the Rutland area.

Well stay safe and  and keep driving.


Looks ok in the pics.

Never been sure the 4 door looks right.

Is it known to the club?

heres the link.

I went last year and saw some fantastic racing , GP's, Gentleman racers, saloons etc etc. Some great Cobra's and Daytona's.

Plenty of space and there will be a classic car show on the sunday.

Here is a link.
