THOUGHT OF THE MONTH

Classics Monthly - - Driver’s Diary -

When you have classic cars you al­ways need to be pre­pared for the un­ex­pected. I'm still amazed at the E-Type's head gas­ket fail­ure af­ter eight years, es­pe­cially as the studs had been ten­sioned on sev­eral oc­ca­sions af­ter the head was fit­ted. How­ever, this has to be ac­cepted as part of the ap­peal of classic car own­er­ship, a 50-year old car is in­di­vid­ual, has char­ac­ter and does not al­ways fol­low the ac­cepted norms, which sets it aside from mod­ern ul­tra-re­li­able look alike ve­hi­cles.
