Well the sun is out, so some pictures. Looks good, shame about the petrol leak. Oh well!
   
   Sorry, but I liked the 'artistic' one, [:D]

Looks very nice - hope you get the petrol leak sorted out before the sun comes out again

   I make no apology for previously posting this pic of my Ace. It was posted a long time ago and still remains my favourite shot of the car.
   
   Shame AC did away with the rubbing strips on later cars (ACE 94T is a '94 car). Although the source of subsequent corrosion problems, in my opinion the strips enhance the appearance of the cars by continuing the bonnet shut line the length of the car.

Lovely photo. I tend to agree about the rubbing strip.
   
   Its a shame that more people don't post pictures there is hardly any mention in the magazine either!

Thanks Shamea2.
   
   I'm surprised more people haven't posted pics. Most classic car owners are only too pleased for excuse to post photos of their beloved motors. Perhaps Ace owners are more preoccupied keeping their cars on the road to find time for photos!
   
   Did you sort the cause of fuel leak?

Mine falls into the trying to get the car on the road - had it back for 1 day last year failed MOT due to emissions, back to the garage where we are waiting for a new wiring loom to go along with the new ECU/sensors etc.

This is much better. Its great to see other cars.
   
   Max - Fuel leak from petrol regulator joint, having a bit of pipe and connector made up. Should get sorted by next week. Fingers crossed.

Yeah - impressive camera angle. Looks really cool!!! Nice colour too.
   
   David S. Although I've not used Ace for past couple of years, for the 16 years of ownership I've always struggled with emissions. Even though my trip to MoT garage requires 40 odd mile blast round M25 (traffic permitting) I still have to run engine at 1,500 rpm for 10 minutes to get within limits prior to test, yet my everyday Corsa just sails through. Garage says its to light up the cats, but I'd have thought dash round the motorway did that. I don't argue (just relieved it gets through), but I reckon something's wrong somewhere cos engine has irritating tendency to stall shifting from drive to reverse.

Front view may split opinions but is certainly distinctive, my favourite angle.

Very nice photo's.
   
   Well the fuel leak is fixed and the soft top works. What more could you ask for? ..........The drivers door lock working would be a bit of a bonus!
   
   Just down the road from Newport Pagnell, seemed a nice spot.
