|Motoring in Thailand and Asia Cars and motorbikes in Thailand and Asia, Where to buy and sell your truck? Where to get fixed and what garage to use. Should I buy a suzuki carry? Will it have a car DVD? Will my travel insurance cover me for driving in Thailand? Or should I just buy a Mercedes or a Honda CRV? Everything to do with motoring and vehicles goes in this section. Do I really need a driving licence in Thailand to drive to Bangkok car hire?|

Beaulieu is a "a lovely locale" and still in the New Forest
In addition to some abandoned old jalopies it is best known for its museum of Thaicide

reliable cars so they ended up buying them.

I was thinking more of the government grant money he stashed in Swiss bank accounts and which the auditors failed to mention because they didn't want to lose the audit. That money was intended to create jobs in Northern Ireland.

the dolomite sprint was a great car, well designed and engineered, unfortunately though, they were put together by people who didnt really care.
triumph and rover, with better management, a more involved and motivated workforce, no government interference and red robbo union bullshit could have been equal to bmw and audi in the world market today.
i had one of these beauties, loved it too, but sold it after 18 months for an audi because the bloody thing spent more time in the workshop than on the road.

I was worried about build quality of British cars, so went for something more reliable...
They are nice, I thought about buying one once (in BRG, naturally), but was worried about reliability, so got a Lotus Elan instead...
How do I post these pictures???

Our next door neighbour owned the local British Leyland dealership and his company car was a Triumph 2.5 PI Estate. It was a real beauty in the early 70s.
Triumph 2000 Mk 1 & 2.5 PI Mk 1; "Project Barb"
Triumph 2000 Mk 1
Triumph 2.5 PI Mk 1 Triumph 2000 Mk 1 Saloon
Overview Production 1963–1969 (2000)
1968-1969 (2.5 PI)
9,029 produced Body and chassis Body style 4-door saloon
5-door estate Powertrain Engine 1,998 cc straight-6 (2000)
2,498 cc straight-6 (2.5 PI) Transmission manual 4-speed gearbox (overdrive optional) or
automatic Borg-Warner Type 35 Although the "Mk 1" was presented to the public at the London Motor Show in October 1963, volume sales began only in January 1964. Continuing in production until 1969, this version came in saloon and, from 1965, estate forms. The estate, its body shell partly built by Carbodies, was in the Mk 1 version the same length as the saloon. Various minor improvements were made during the period of which the most noteworthy, probably, was a significant upgrade in October 1966 to the "previously rather ineffective" ventilation, with eyeball vents added in the centre of the facia and the heater controls repositioned beneath them.
In 1968 the 2.5 PI (petrol injection) Mk 1 was launched, fitted with a Lucas Automotive mechanical fuel injection system. Performance was very good, but the PI models (along with the TR6 models) gained a reputation for unreliability and poor fuel economy.
In Australia these models suffered badly because of the summer heat. The electric fuel pump commonly overheated causing fuel to vaporise and render the engine inoperable until the pump cooled down. The overheating of the pump was caused by a combination of very high pressure fuel loads (over 110 psi (7.6 bar)) and a pump that was adapted from what was originally a windscreen wiper motor. As such, it did not cope well with sustained pressures in moderate to high ambient temperatures. Because of the launch late in the Mk I's life, there are relatively few PIs in the original shape.
Typical parts bin production using a wiper motor to drive the fuel injection system.
