    Cpt.70's NotAHonda - 1983 Triumph Acclaim L

    Oops I did it again, as Britney would say. I've been on the hunt for something to replace my '05 Civic as daily driver as it costs £560 to insure and there are numerous niggles that need to be fixed which will cost more than the car is actually worth. Essentially anything within my budget...

    Ownership Verified: 2005 Honda Civic 1.6i Executive

    VTEC JUST KICKED IN, YO! In a shocking turn of events I've bought yet another car. You'll note this one is rather newer than my usual purchases and one of those bloody foreign jobs, there is reasoning behind this that I shall detail later. Essentially this is now my new daily driver, it's a...

    No 56k: Cpt.70's 2015 Car Show Highlights!

    I go to quite a few car shows and take far too many pictures. The last car show I'll attend this season was last weekend so here are a few highlights from places I've been this year: Starting with the Buckie Summer Show which was 5 miles from my house and was the first show of the season, the...

    Fraserburgh Classic Car Rally 2014

    First car show I've been to this summer. Really nice weather, good turn out of cars. My camera died after 4 shots so these are all phone pics I couldn't really see the screen as the sun was so bright so quality is pretty low! Important things first, my car and it's neighbor, another 1976...

    Ownership Verified: 2012 Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 Turbo... Lag

    Some of you may have noticed I have a reputation for buying bad cars for too much money, not wanting to disappoint I've bought a 10k Vauxhall! Essentially I needed rid of the Yaris, the lack of power was troublesome and it was starting to disintergrate after nearly two years of me thrashing...

    Ownership Verified: My Brooklands Green sports saloon...

    An eerie premonition... So, it's a 1977 Triumph Dolomite 1300... (Hear that? That's the sound of money being invested incredibly poorly.) Last week I noticed two cars for sale within 20 miles of my the Dolly 1300 and a Triumph 1500TC, the TC sold before I got a chance to see it but I...

    Alford Classic Car Meet (And Grampian Transport Museum)

    Heard there was a classic car meet going on at the motor museum in Alford so I popped down this afternoon. :) As with most museums the lighting was awful, so sorry for the blury pics. Although the car of the day has to be this Roller I found in the TESCO car park as I was heading home. :D

    Ownership Verified: Captain_70s' motor - 2008 Toyota Y-arse-is 1.0

    It sure is a car! Picked it up and drove it home, in the dark, while it was lightly snowing, after having not driven alone before, and not driven at all for well over a year. (Not counting my test drive). It was an experience to say the least, was following Dad home so I have no idea what...

    The FG musical talent thread!

    Given that quite a few FinalGearians play musical instruments and sing I figured we should have a thread to post such things. There is the Music thread, but that is mostly pro stuff and there is a thread for drawings and voice so why not music? I was also debating putting this in the...

    Recording audio problem

    Right... So I have my piano keyboard plugged connected to the PC through the Line In port, simple. It records but has constant, loud, irritating static over everything. But when I play the keyboard the sound plays through the PC speakers in real time with perfect quality, no static. Even if I...

    All of my .DLL files...

    Are corrupted. Can't get anything to run, the computer boots up but "****.DLL is not a recognised format" messages (or something like that) start popping up even before I log in. Everything that tries to run gets this error, can't open anything. :( Any ideas peeps?

    Anyone know how to...

    Record direct from your soundcard? I used to be able to do this with Audacity, it'd record anything playing on the PC like music from YouTube and other websites (Ah, back when I had no idea what a torrent was...). But I can't seem to get it to work any more, in fact I can't seem to get...

    Virus Alert!

    Right my computer is playing up, again. It starts and runs seemingly fine but IE and Firefox windows keep opening up on their own accord, I'm getting pop up windows for advertising and links from Google are re-directing to shitty scam websites. I've ran AVG and Avira but they can't find...

    PS3 fps Drop...

    Hey, Just got hold of Fallout 3 earlier and have been playing it quite a bit but have noticed a problem. I played the game for about 6 hours straight, by hour 5 the game had started acting slower, having a lagging affect and noticable fps drop depending on the level of detail in the...

    Firefox problem...

    Hey, Got a problem with Firefox, as it updates its self I'm guessing its the most recent one. Sometimes when I select a block of text and right click I don't get the copy/paste/delete etc options up, I get the standard options for right clicking a web page, back/forward/reload/stop, etc...

    File recovery?

    Yeah, not me this time, my Dad. When I told him he should clear out his laptop because to was slow and always crashing he went and deleted the contents of the C:\\Vista\Users\Whatever\ folder. Now he's rather annoyed all the files on the desktop are gone, including his accounts for the company...
