Re: White Uno Turbo N London / Edmonton

Its a valid point, if he`s been left a note & he`s ignored it, he doesnt want to know.

Re: White Uno Turbo N London / Edmonton

Turns out my brother knows his ex, he vaguely knows him, so I said to mention FF if he see`s him again... & thats where I`m leaving it!

I`m not as ol` as you olgit, but I remember new Uno`s too, I was also in Palmers Green & Totty for a few decades, so I know what you mean about moody blokes who might take exception to this amount of attention

Y'know sometimes it takes a fresh pair of eyes to spot things we overlook in our quest for enlightenment . Olgit you're absolutely right, had not thought about that, for me it was more 'Cars the Star' LOL, but I will leave that as my last pic. I have seen it again more recently, sounding a bit wooly but given the age? possible it's just nominal wear and tear, loud enough though!
If by CHANCE I do see him in passing I might stop and chat as I think he knows another guy near me that is only of course IF HE WANTS TO...

Not as old as Olgit me thinks ?, but I remember that being one of THE hot hatches to have then, I could not afford the insurance back then as I was a Student so I opted for me 5 spoked Chrome ally wheeled Panda Classic mk2 which equally turned heads but not for speed... the wheels really set it off and I think I was the only person nutty enough to do it at that time!
Have toyed with the idea of a restoration Uno T project, but unsure as to cost but hey we can all dream right?

Re: White Uno Turbo N London / Edmonton

Nosher I don't think it is Jai and if it was the post has been on here long enough for him to own up .
Saw Jai's car once at an Auto Italia night at Ace Cafe about a year ago so I don't think it's him.

Bertie already stuck a note on his windscreen before and the guy did not respond so as is the consensus he may just wanna do his thing and be left alone ? If you wanna try and stick a flyer on his motor next time you see him then up to you If I do it it really might appear like I'm stalking him!

Re: White Uno Turbo N London / Edmonton

I`m sure our paths have crossed many times, I dont live down there now, but my immediate family are still in Palmers Green & I know quite a few people in Totty too, so I`m down there several times a week.

I used to work at Halfords at the Angel & Ripspeed (the one on the Edmonton/Totty boarder thats now a pub) many years ago....

I know Jai`s car & that aint it!

Re: White Uno Turbo N London / Edmonton

Ah see? I dont, although I do remember Blatter Oakthorpe on the North Circ, BMG at Bruce Grove, Gestetners down the Hale & The Cambridge roundabout with the Cambridge pub, the Shell station & a library on it...

You probably remember the Chrysler dealer at the Hale... having to turn left at the nick to go into the hale 1 way system.... & Totty car auctions... & banger racing at Harringey stadium...

Its unlikely you`d know me from Ripspeed, I was out back in the dingy mail order dept!

Ha! cool! I nearly got a new Lada 1.6SLX with the tuning kit (twin 36`s?) fitted from BMG once! if I remember rightly they could out accelerate a Countach 50-90?

I was also very tempted by one of the last X1/9 Gran Finale`s they had there for ages, I`m sure it was still there when they closed (1992-ish?)!

I`ve also worked in a couple of other places in Totty, WHG down on the new road, Europaints off Brantwood & Brown Brothers in the opposite estate.

I miss the huge scrap yard that used to be down on Montague before the overpass was put there... I spent many days down there nicking badges as a teen *cough*

Anyway, we`ve gone well off topic... dont want to upset anyone again do we...lol
