Yes that's plenty to be going on with 😉 how do you find your BMW ? Has it been good to you? I know lots of people that swear by them but mine was always needing sensors 🙁 however it was a nice car to drive .

But most of all they are ultra reliable as long as you change the oil regularly. I fitted electronic ignition to mine as the points and condensers you buy these days are poor quality so the electronic ignition is the best bet .

I would love to put up a photo of my capri on here but I just can't seem to download it on this site.
Just seen it on your profile page.... Nice!

It Is a design classic, gear change a bit notchy, but, loads of power, will be worth a mint when we go all electric

There will be fuel, some sort of substitute probably, and will be 20.00+ a gallon, but that won't matter with the nominal mileages this type of vehicle does at the moment, let alone in the future.

I did wonder what would happen to the classics and thought they might become worthless, but as you say, it is predicted that they will become very valuable.
