Hi all,
after 30 years of company cars from Maestro to Range Rover, I finally saw sense and bought a 12-year-old Renault Clio to teach my sons to drive.
So far:

1 changed cam belt/tensioner and water pump. (couldn't confirm if it had been done)
2 Replaced brake discs/pads and rear shoes as well as brake fluid - snapped off a bleed screw - replaced brake cylinders at the back.
3 soldered an aux input lead to the back of the radio
4 t-cut about 4 inches of tree sap off the bodywork....

not had so much fun in years!!!

ill be a regular.

I'm afraid its been very quiet around here for quite a while, so you may be disappointed at the lack of activity.

A long series of British Leyland company cars sounds odd coming from Vienna, but perhaps Austria is a recent relocation?

Trying to think of an Austrian vehicle, I remembered these

Used to see them on shooting estates in the Scottish Highlands sometimes. I'd guess those have all died by now, though perhaps there are Austrian examples left.

The one pictured is in the USA. I'd very much like one. Weather protection not much of an issue here in Taiwan and my aircon is probably broken anyway.

Welcome to the forum. As above unfortunately its gone very quiet.

Oh god a hafflinger! Knew a gentleman with one. Used to off road with him. Theyre such weird things to drive. But with locking diffs and being light they'd go anywhere. Handy size for footpaths aswell. They have the same/similar engine to the inva cars.
