  1. Thanks everyone for the answers I didn't know at all about "tether cars" you learn something every day on here! What a great club!
  2. The image below has been taken from a 9 x 12 cm photographic glass plate negative which were used in photography from 1851 to the 1920s. Now I'm not sure that the model in the image is from that period but it is a good starting point. We don't have the model only only the photographic glass plate negative but we are intrigued to know what it may be. So any suggestions to shed some light on this unusual model appreciated. One thing for sure is that it is a fantastic quality photo for the period it was taken, which may be another clue!
  3. Rare Saab 900 Turbo body now identified as a Cambria body made in Wales UK in the 1980s and listed on eBay UK. It belongs to my friend. Thanks for looking. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F383377186436

  9. I became a "newbie" last year at the age of 68! At my rate of posting I will still be a "newbie" when I'm pushing up daisies!
  10. Yes it was going fast, they refunded me for one item that I ordered as it wasn't available despite showing stock on the website and accepting my order!
  11. @Wooders28 mentioned in November in the "Black Friday Deals?" stream that Inside Line Models were ceasing trading and I bought a few bits and pieces in their closing sale, but I just noticed on their website that they are now continuing under new ownership and they are in the process of re-stocking the website. I would like to point out that I have no connection with Inside Line Models and will not benefit in any way from this notification.
