Pictures of the Electric Gentry

Hi, Folks. I visited Christian's Electric Gentry this morning and took a few pictures. I've also added a few notes, and posted it all on my website: http://users.ecs.soton.ac.uk/da/interest/fast/ElectricGentry/ It would be my dream project. Hmm... how about early retirement, and spending a cash reti...

What sort of money do you think they will be asking ? ChrisB Hi, Chris. Here's a copy of Christian's contribution to the Gentry forum. I haven't asked him, but I'm sure he won't mind me copying it across. The last part deals with the asking price: "Hi all, The previous owner had built the car ...

Electric Gentry

Hi, Folks. I've just had a 'phone call from a guy in Southampton. He bought the electric-powered Gentry (originally built in the 1980s, I believe), and has been undertaking a ground-up rebuild. However, he's moving in four weeks time and really wants to pass the project on to someone else before the...

Spitfire Conversion

Hi, Sio. I notice you haven't had a reply yet, so I'll do my usual trick of talking rubbish and giving those who know what they're talking about something to kick against :wink: I was chatting earlier this week to a guy in Southampton who bought an electric Gentry a while back, but which needs upgra...

PS...

BTW, if you think this forum's quiet, you'd be stunned by another forum I'm a member of. We're averaging one post a month at the moment - it's embarrassing. You get a new member join up, ask for advice, and if you're not careful, a month later, no-one's answered!

We're a club.....not a charity :wink: ChrisB [whispers quietly...] um... I know I'm a bit of a leech, and I haven't had the courage to commit and go for EV propulsion... yet... but I don't know where else one would go to think through such things. What would happen to guys like me who might be on t...

Hi, Qdos - yes please :) . I got interested in the (Partridge-) Wilson Electric Coupe when I stumbled across it whilst reading a book about cars from the 1930s: http://users.ecs.soton.ac.uk/da/interest/fast/WilsonElectricCoupe.jpeg I guess it reawakened a vague recollection that, in the 1950s, we we...

Wilson Electric Coupe

Hi, Folks. I was doing a trawl on the Wilson Electric Coupe, and came across this site: http://www.anarchadia.co.uk/2008/11/electric-exeter.html The writer reckons it was you guys displaying the car. I've had a quick ttrawl through the forum and can't find any hints. Can you tell me anything about t...

LED lights

Err... this is really a continuation of a conversation with Qdos which started in Home Energy, but I suspect belongs here. Moderators - please move it if it's in the wrong place! My white front LEDs arrived this morning, so grabbed 5 mins over my coffee break :wink: and fitted them. So I now have LE...

Hi, Qdos. Haven't got a reply from my son yet, but did have a look on a legal forum re LEDs on cars. The more I look, the more confused the picture seems. The key points seemed to be: 1) The law is way behind where we're at (so what's new...) 2) The law specifies watts, not lumens, so a LED bulb wil...
