Re: To live in Britain in the '50's and '60's

The only thing I would add is the bomb sites everywhere in the 50s London, dangerous really as kids would play amongst the ruins, while we paid millions to rebuild Germany I think we were left behind.

Re: POLL - Dashcam facing forwards, back or both ways?

Mine does both ends in one small unit, would not drive without it, we see daily now staged crashes and Police beginning to ask for information from them. saves hours of paper work too.

Re: A warning for all pre war owners.....

I remember my family DB18 had a bath chain dangling on the road as did many cars in the fifties. I was told to aid travel sickness but probably nonsense.

Re: A warning for all pre war owners.....

Thanks for that, I have never checked the battery cable as it cannot be seen easily so out of mind. Another thing to check on my DB18 which must be similar.

Re: Backfiring and loss of power at hgher revs

Is there an easy quick way to check the condenser, I have wondered for years on how to check the odd ones in my old box of bits.
