Old Formula Ford and Lotus. If I hear of a set I'll PM you.


Good job Adam. The LP923s you managed to buy were the only ones I'd heard of for sale in NZ or Australia in the last five years. Hopefully there are more lying around, perhaps in the corners of sheds, in the hands of owners that don't realise the market for them.

To have originals banded out to look the same would cost around £40 ea

But who says you have to stop at 5.5"

Dave - you get bricks?


Do not touch the glass. Do not approach the glass. You pass him nothing but soft paper - no pencils or pens. No staples or paperclips in his paper. Use the sliding food carrier, no exceptions. If he attempts to pass you anything, do not accept it. Do you understand me?

Look on the bright side, after a while you will have enough bricks to build a garage to keep the car in.

Found the retro ride mag out with the herald on banded steels, now they look good being staggered.
