Always loved Inters... I prefer the normal models, torpedo looks great in some angles, but also the fact of it being early with the smaller headlight etc makes it look fatter. Love the axles though!

Wow, there are some serious lush and wierd cars on this site.

This will be an eye opener for me, having had classic cars for years, but only recently seing all the rarer micro's.

This is a pic of my Willam being driven after it was MOT'd:



And another whilst it was being pre-MOT'd:



And as people are showing 'peds etc (no offence, its fun to everyones various fun vehicles),
This is my sunny day car,
But I was driving it in the rain today :D



Can't find any pics at the mo ???

I am loving the new breed of cars I am seeing.

Shaun.

Interesting observation Jonathan, in reality all Inters have the same size headlight but the difference between an early one and a late one is the height of the headlight, early ones are high up with the top edge being level with the slope of the nose, later ones are set lower with the nose rounding down towards the light . I think they all look great from the front but pretty odd from the side view.

It would be good to know more about your MOT Shaun.
Also what information you get on your V5c
I have not gone for an MOT yet as I need to prove the age of my Lawil for the registration.
Will get a message to you off-forum

Perhaps that cat's predecessor! Over the years all four of our cats have loved sitting and sleeping in DUF during nice weather, as soon as the door opens in they go. They shun other vehicles completely. Good taste, those cats. Very nice acoustics in a Heinkel-Trojan, intimate but the large shiny areas prevent PCS.

Here you go:  A 1980 KV Mini 1 and a 1981 HMV Freeway.  My other KV Mini 1, a '78, is lurking in the background.



For anyone wondering about the ground clearance on that '82 MG Metro, I should add that I took this photo shortly after one of its rear displacers had ruptured.  It's fixed [for] now.
