Hi BT Justice, did the Beetle start?
BTJustice

Norrie, I havent collected the car yet so not tried starting it, need to check things over first.

Fastnet, what exactly is the issue? I have viewed the threads I post on here, on my tablet and on my phone and all seem to work fine. I am not being awkward but if I need to adjust every photos img code because the forum is flawed then it would be easier to go back to not contributing.
fastnet

It's a flickr problem mate.

Since their last update the bb code appears at the side of the pics rather than the bottom.

A simple split of the url's solves this for this forum.

It just makes the forum look tidier.
BTJustice

In all the forums I post pics this is the only site that posts them in that way.

Might be a conflict with this site then......  

There are few posters that this happens to but it is a very few.

I'm just thinking it might be a phone/ tablet problem ?.

Please don't stop posting pics though.

We might need to figure out these modern day problems....

I read once that the Indian motor bikes throttle was on the left handlebar, this was to allow the rider to shoot with his right hand. Is that true or was I taken in.  
Obviously I'm not into motor bikes and often thought about that.

Not sure Bob, it may be that at one time they had hand gear change on the right hand side.

It was the police issue indians that had the controls reversed so that the throttle could be used on the left while shooting with the right.
cybers

Quote:
Indian placed the throttle on the left hand twist grip, not the right. Don’t believe the old story that it was placed there so that the bike riding sheriff could ride with his left hand while he shot his revolver with his right hand! The truth is much less dramatic… Early motors responded strongly to variable ignition timing, due to their low compression and mild cam timing, and the primitive carburetion of the time. Indian made the decision to put the ignition control in the rider’s right hand, and relegated the throttle control to his left hand. As motors developed, and throttles became the dominant control method, Indian stayed with their layout. As an option they eventually did offer reversed controls, to help sell bikes to riders who were used to right hand throttles. (And Harley sold bikes with “Indian type” controls too, trying to woo customers away from Springfield)

I'm a volunteer member at Ipswich Transport Museum and here's some of our vehicles:


Ipswich Corporation Transport Trolleybus No.2, built in 1923 when they were known as 'Trackless Trams'. It is the world's oldest surviving trolleybus.


Cambridge Horse Tram No.7, built in 1880 for Bath Tramways and during restoration the pencil mark 'Bath 4' was found inside, along with Bath and Bradford tickets. It operated in Bath until 1889/1890, the saw service as a Bradford steam tram trailer, and then worked in Cambridge between 1900 and 1914. Recently mounted onto tramway wheels for the first time in 101 years!


1964 built Ipswich Corporation Transport AEC Regent 5 bus just after its MOT a few months ago.


Ipswich built Ransomes lawnmower modified for use by Hatfield College students for their non-stop run from Edinburgh to London in Easter 1959. It is still in working order and we use it for programme selling on our annual Ipswich-Felixstowe historic vehicle run.


Ipswich Co-Op Funeral Services 1948 Daimler Hearse, needs a new pre-select gearbox to get it going again.


1938 Leyland Cub Fire Engine ex Ipswich Fire Brigade, still used by Suffolk Fire Brigade to lead a fireman's funeral.


The only surviving Ipswich Tram - No.33. Built in 1903 and withdrawn in 1926 when the system closed in favour of trolleybuses.

We do get modern visitors!

Ipswich Community Playbus visits us for servicing (our museum is the old trolleybus depot and has a fully fitted workshop with maintenance pits). Here it is on our 2014 Christmas Cracker Day.

Finally, One of our big events each October, where we plunge the place into darkness and lit up by oil, paraffin and petrol lamps:

I wonder if the guy on the jet ski was even aware he was about to be dive bombed.

Must have been a good day for perfect timing as this Sea king appeared right in front of me at eye level as I got to Firkin point, it took a few seconds to get my camera ready but when it appeared it was so close I could have counted the rivets...... on the pilots jeans.

I always thought that the Capri was a great looking car, still looks great but how was it to drive?
Great to see there are still plenty around, there is a guy in the Rutherglen area who has black one in good nick
cybers

The Capri was a good looking drive.... Awesome in the dry and a heart stopper in the wet. All the things a good car should be. It always looked as though the driver was leaning back in the seat but that was just the driving position as you looked out over the bunnet that went for miles.

Two slabs in the boot was an accepted old skool modification to keep the tail happy thing in check though it never worked.  

In my earlier informative years I ended up going backwards a few times on exits of roundabouts and junctions. I think the closest equivalent out there today is the Toyota GT86.... a quick wee tail happy thing.

To be fair it was a criminal offence in England but no one knew if it would be maritime law lol, her sister ship "Tuxedo Princess" was the one parked on the clyde in the 80's and was broken for scrap in 2008.
