Have a look at this thread - it just might make you laugh!! Photos are large so apologies to those on dial-up. Do try to read to the end if you can - it's a good example of how daft we Brits can be!!! If you like it, why not register and show those British guys what US 'Scorts are made of (even if they're not Cozzies). Trax by the way, is a car show to be held at Silverstone on Sept. 7th - my first show!!

DUMPED THE PHOTOS NOW AS THEY WERE TAKING UP A LOT OF BANDWIDTH. HOPED THOSE WHO SAW THEM, LIKED THEM.

Nice thread :)
Is it me or does the Bently look photoshopped?
I know one guy said he'd seen it in a magazine but the pic looks a little off.
They are Rangr Rover lights, bu tI remembered them to be smaller than that, which supports the photoshop theory.

Anyway you shoud put those lights on Eric, if that's what you were asking :wink:

I read somewhere that the UK has strict rules about what you can and can't modify, and that it can be harder to modify your car there than it is here. DO a lot of people do it illegally?

England has less strict roules forf modifying cars than the US does...we have crazy strickt emmissionss laws here. i think england is less stictker. but thaen again I don't know.... :?

It would be exactly the same way they illegially modify cars heree, a lot of people rip their cats open and gut thjem. that way it appears stock but they gain 10 hp. it's just a matte ro fgetting around the yearly inspections (unlss you live in ft wayne indiana, we don have inspections! haaa!! ) :p

Sadly the Bentley was not photoshopped, it is exactly as it appears! :cry:

We are allowed to do more or less whatever we like to our cars as long as they pass the annual Ministry of Transport certificate of roadworthiness which includes strict emmisions tests.

Naturally insurance companies have to be notified of each and every modification made, no matter how small, otherwise the policy may be null and void.

The cars in that thread belong to a Custom Car Club - I saw them with my very own eyes! No photoshop there!

James - I forgot your Birthday - many happy returns of your hangover!! :eek:ccasion6: :eek:ccasion5:

ahh... that first car is sweet. I love that color.

I don't care what anyone says. Old classic hotrods are the coolest vehicles ever made.

Oh I didn't have a hangover. I wasn't really drunk, I got buzzed enough that my brother wouldn't let me drive home and I was kinda stumbling around. lol it was kinda like I was just dizzy and couldn't think straight. I just kept noticing all the hunnies in the bar...LOL

But I woke up this morning just fine. :wink:

If your getting rid of the altezzas, you can throw the Bently out with the bathwater, as far as im' concerned. those things are pure status syumbol. big, heavy, ugly and dumb.
