  1. Hi Ian – good luck with the crowdfunding. Ellie seems like a very good cause to me. Here’s my fiver – I hope it gets things going. Let me know if you need help with transport (you or the car). Cheers, Dan

  2. A few quid on its way because a man like you needs a 2CV in his life – good luck with Elly.
    ps.. if you need any free labour I’m not far from Citwins.

    • Thanks John! Today, I have delivered the bodyshell to Citwins. Rachel declines the kind offer. I think she wants Elly back too!

  3. Hi Ian, just been on PayPal to sign up to a 12 month subscription (which will be renewed. I find the videos both entertaining and informative. It was great to see TWC gain her first MOT pass in years. Wish I had the space to do it, because I’d like to be able to rescue another Invacar.

  4. Celebrating the mundanely scrumptious and all things in between and broadcasting it to the hungry masses is good enough reason for me to support your cause. My whip is a 98 punto but I’m insanely jealous of your 2cv Ellie. Great content keep it up, the internet is greatly improved concept because of it. Geoff aka puntomunto60 on autoshite.

  5. Hi Ian, discovered your videos last week and have really enjoyed them all. Loved the invacar and Dacia adventures. I’ve just ordered a couple of stickers, one each for my 1976 Alfasud ti and 1960 Borgward Isabella. Can’t wait for the next video.

  6. Ordered a couple of stickers Ian. (Tony in Staffordshire Moorlands). One for the back door of Nissan Primera Estate / the other for ? – who knows? I’m always on the lookout for something interesting 🙂 Used to have a caravan near Newquay WW. We can actually get to Spain much faster (haha). Tony.

  7. I order my “Mighty Dacia” t-shirt last week and I’m proud to support the channel. I wish your donate button could just accept straight PayPal payments as I would love to just send some spare cash from time to time as I get it. Also, wish you had an address(Post office box) so fans could send you things you need and want. The most professional, honest, creator on Youtube. Cheers from the United States.

  8. Good afternoon Ian came across your you tube Chanel about 6 weeks ago now I can’t get enough of your videos it’s great to see such genuine videos and none of the hype from other big names keep up the brilliant work ian and looking forward to all the future videos I’m now off to look at the shop and support also will get round to supporting by donation as well also best regards to Mrs Hubnut
    Best wishes

  9. Done. Subscribed a few months ago thanks to a friend sharing some of the YouTube videos.

    Excellent fun and worth paying for!

    Plus if you ever fancy road testing a VW Type 181 there’s one in Somerset if you’re passing :-£

    Thanks and keep up the great work!


  10. Hi Ian, I’m restoring an Invacar Mk12b and I’m desperate for a rear drum which is the same as the Model 70. Please could you put me in touch with someone who might have one? Or do you have a spare?
    Regards, Jon

  11. Have just found hub nut, and think it is fantastic, very entertaining. I am almost seventy and have been driving since i was 17 years of age. Have driven all sorts of crap cars over the years, but now have a Honda Jazz, CVT. So very interested in the invalid car. (I can remember them).

  12. I thought I’d share a story with you, and although I would prefer to email it this avenue will suffice. Last October 2017 I had some abdominal surgery. The surgery went fine, no worries, but due to the length there was a side effect from the anesthesia. As I was on an IV to prevent dehydration after a while hydraulic pressure built up but I was unable to relieve it due to the muscles being locked by the anesthetic. Eventually a catheter was used, an without going into details I’ll state there was a good deal of pain and some blood although the immediate objective was achieved. After 2 more repeats it was decided to attempt one non-invasive method to clear this up before more drastic measures were taken. This involved ramping the IV solution flow up to very high levels which caused the pressure to build up more quickly but also hopefully flushing any remnants of the anesthetic away. Ultrasound revealed my ‘tank’ had just under 1 liter in it so I was sequestered in the bathroom and they ran water outside etc. to help trigger a release. I was trying to think of everything I could to open the gates but nothing worked – waterfalls, rain, etc to no avail. For some reason I remembered the Renault R16 we had owned and the rather complex cooling system it had, including the little bleeder hose up at the right side of the engine compartment just under the hood. And remembering this loosened the floodgates! To this day I have no idea why but in all honesty I don’t care!

    The only downside to this was that they kept up the flow to clear things out so I was having to ‘go’ every 45 minutes while still connected to an IV, an EKG, Oxygen monitor, a pneumatic anti-blood clot device on my legs, and a CPAP. By the time I got disconnected from bed, emptied out, and back in bed and connected, there would be only about 20 minutes before the next go. So I didn’t get any sleep for 3 days. It was SO good to get home.

    So I hope I gave you a chuckle or at least a smile. Carry on the good work, I enjoy your work!
