Off Topic- Boys Toys

Post by Renegadenemo » Tue Aug 11, 2009 12:34 am

This is my Wee-Wee machine. The ultimate games console... Expensive, yes, but you can often pick up an old RS Ford these days for less money than one of those Nintendo jobs will set you back.

Used to have a Broadspeed Capri rs3100 till I remembered I actually liked living and cars with brakes!

I always found that the steering went light on those Capri's as the faster you went as the front lifted, wee wee machines indeed!

While we're all waiting for this big tin boat we may as well talk about cars. Anyone else got or had any nice toys?

All i can offer up regarding toys is me meccano. Needs some fettling but it'll fix. Also got me little steam engines and recently moved into the world of model internal combustion engines. Not RS200 class but keeps me busy while not on the tin boat. :oops:

Not with a big nail of a V6 engine they didn't!-just wouldn't stop worth a damn!-had disc brakes on rear as well due to the Atlas axle but nae use!-animal of a car right enough-triple downdraught Weber 45dcoe carbs and a thirst like a fighter jet!-used to burn off Porsches on the M8-back tyres lasted about 200 miles-big clunky Rocket gearbox as well-sold it to a wee guy in Rutherglen who drove it up a tree the next day--

There is a connection here.... A small one.... The white car is A COX Grand Touring Mini and the connection with Campbell is that the Cox was released to the public on a cold January 4th morning in 1967 at the Racing Car Show . The blue car not that exciting a later model of the same car.

The Cox has 165bhp + 70bhp Nitrous oxide and is 610kg's
The blue car has 285bhp + 70bhp Nitrous oxide and is 686kg's

On another note I used to work at "Tickford" and remember a few entertaining road tests in the RS200-S's :lol:

O/T is it weird that my two son's are named Campbell and Leo? :ugeek: :lol:
