Especially with Pre 68 at Hedno only 3 weeks away. Looks like my Wolseley will be going on the track, but at least I own it!!!! I race myself, but if that's where this Riley ends up unwillingly then it's just wrong. I don't want to get into the ' all banger drivers are scum ' debate, 'cos I'll be racing at this meeting myself, I also know a few banger drivers who have had their classics nicked, so it isn't a closed shop. Hope this story doesn't end in tears.

Paul: I guess the Riley owners club are aware?? (Is there a Riley owners club.... )
There is a Riley club that caters for them but then it's more likely a Cambridge-Oxford club car (cater for all Farinas). CO-OC intentionally don't have a forum so can't post about it there. Is it worth mentioning on ovalchat or whatever that one's called?
Follow your dreams or you might as well be a vegetable.
these models are not just desirable to the banger boys but to mg restorers and racers coz the riley has the 1622 lump with the tacho drive at the nearside rear of the block handy to uprate your MG A from 1500 to 1622!
yes indeed,.. hopefully those people will be aware that one is missing because it is plastered on classic car forums as well. Could just be someone in the know grabbing the parts and selling them for an MGA conversion then making money off the shell for scrap value,.. guess we just keep our eye out and hope its gone somewhere that it can be found...
Thanks Rmad. At least when I end up on my roof I'll be able to climb out of the floor! ;D Wouldn't bother with the Riley club for help.When I had my 4/72 (which for the info of banger haters has had a full resto and is alive and well in Scotland), I got snubbed by them at shows 'cos it isn't a "proper Riley". CO-OC is the way to go.
