    See also the related "blog" post about whether one really needs a lathe - my answer is generally "NO!!!" - the author doesn't think that way. (I like to support my machinist, he is also a good thinker and there are always interesting projects in his workshop.)

    Well, I do have a lathe and a milling machine. The lathe was from a school where the pupils weren't allowed to use it for fear of health and safety. The milling machine is just post war. I need all the help I can get as I am self taught. If anyone is thinking of buying a lathe, fit a digital readout. These fit on the X and Y axis', backlash becomes irrelevant and repeatability is much easier. And avoid the combined lathe/milling machine combo's, weak and underpowered.

    I need my Lotto balls to drop as well

    I am a little sorry that the upholstery is poorly executed -------The method of attachment to the front squabs is wrong and the seat backs are quite roughly finished on the lower side edges and not pulled down tightly to give a smooth finish. The angle of the back rest is far too upright!

    1973 CITROEN SM MASERARTI SERIES FOR SALE

    Would you by a car from an (allegedly) professional, commercial car dealer who cannot even spell MASERATI correctly?

    Probably written by someone who is a victim, sorry graduate, of the public school system.

    Didn't spell-check show them that something was wrong?

    I got to have a drive of that car. It is a good base for further improvement!

    Yes, my Mother and Father made the sacrifices necessary to pay for good education & I did the same for my kids.

    Well depends on the models, but largely (apart from the front guards with single v dual headlights), and with caveats (door handles, for example) ... "yes."

    Thanks garyk, I had thought just as much. With the D's concept of removal panels; it is of interest to me in that the road registered D can remain "on the road" whilst components are restored.

    And, in a hypothetical world, you could drive a D with no body panels on it at all.
    Zilch.

    Just noticed this.

    That car has been sitting there for at least 30 years to my knowledge. (Well, it was moved once, about 10 metres to where it currently sits)

    I've studiously avoided enquiring about it over the years as I couldn't imagine any way I could (a) get it out of there in a workable number of pieces and (b) put the bits somewhere.

    Good luck to the new owner. I'll miss waving to it every time I cruise past in Moby Dick.

    Cheers, Pottsy.

    I think you missed the point in my post re schooling/spelling Robmac, I managed top 10% in state with 3 unit English care of a public school education, so there must have been several private school pupils I left in the dust on that count, 30 years later I'm still doing spell checks nevertheless. : )

    Please check your spelling of the word "Interesting " in the title of your post! We all make blunders from time to time!

    "Intresting" is the Murican southern accent pronunciation.
    Once upon a time:


    Many R4s (incl. fourgonnette), R5LS, R16TS.


    GS 1015, 1220, sedans and wagons.
    CX 2200, 2400.
    ID 1966, 1969, DS21H, DSpecial, DS23 Pallas.
    C5 2002, 2004 petrol and diesel.
    D Special 1974
    Xantia Activa 1998 (look out Gulargambone)
    GS 5 speed sedan (what a tale)
    1986 2CV6
    CX25GTi 1985 auto
    CX2500 IE Pallas 1985 auto
    DS23EFI 1975 Pallas

    And now:

    C5 2.2 HDI 2005 wagon
    DS23 1973 Pallas
