I'm sorry to be pedantic (no I'm not I'm positively relishing it :wink:) but neither of the London Buses are Routemasters, the bottom one is definitely an RTL. the Leyland version of the bus that went before the Routemanster

RTL - that's what I was thinking of. I knew it wasn't a Routemaster but I just couldn't think what they were instead. :roll: It's been a while since I was bus mad.

Do you think it's OK to drive after you've had a few bevvies? Think it proves you're more of un homme? Are you a complete twat? Then you'll be wanting this magnifique HENRY PAUL FRENCH DRESSING SHIRT, as (might have been) worn by the cocksure asshole whose idiocy slew Princess Diana. (With sew-on Frog flag to make it look a bit more French (55p extra)).

Posted Image

Do you love teddy bears? Did you used to enjoy watching the Onedin Line? Yes to both questions? We thought so! (they usually go together). Now is your chance to satisfy both passionate interests at a stroke with THE ONEDIN LINE IN TEDDIES. Figures include such beloved favourites as OLD AAARR ONEDIN and ROGER THE CABINBOY (aka Agrippa).

Posted Image

If you are a bald git with ill-fitting trousers and a silver Porsche 911 you'll be wanting to conceal at least one of those embarrassing facts. Obviously you'll have to see a milliner about the baldness and hope that if ever she comes back to you (ha, ha, chance would be a fine thing) or you manage to marry someone else, a woman will one day help you to buy decent clothes. We can, however, help you to solve the problem of that vulgar car! You need a patent SHITE COVER. Sadly, it doesn't disguise the uniquely ugly shape of the piece-of-crap in question, but it might go some way towards preserving property values in your street and the immediate fallout area.

Hello Capitalist Enemies of Socialism! Rise & shine, bright eyes and bush-like tail. OK, OK here is (me), Andrew:

...and him, Balkie:

Posted Image

from Land of the Bulgars. Probably you seen Mr Niceguy himself, Mikahil Palin, visit Bulgaria recent on TV and wonder where the fuck everyone is?

Hey, Andrea, don't say 'fuck' on TV, is not nice.

Two things, Balkie: (1) don't call me 'Andrea', is girl's name. And (2) this not TV, Stupid. This Internet where it OK to say 'fuck'.

Two things to you, then: (1) You don't mind get called Andrea in Bulgaria. Is your name. And (2) Mikahil Palin never say 'fuck', so don't you say it either, you dirty Przmalsk.

Hey! Don't say Przmalsk! That really is dirty...OK, we kiss & make up.

Yes, kiss & make up and get on with postcards while Mr Ghiaman still asleep, lazy dog. OK, is first Socialist Postcard, HOTEL BESKID, NOWY SACZ, POLANDIA:

Posted Image

Hmm, quite good hotel with special small window in every room which guest can open after he receive written permission from management, only 5,000 Zlotys.

Nice hotel. Nice.

Let's have close-up of local Autoshite, full of Eastern promise:

Yes, is nice. But now we worry because close-up reveal guest on balcony with prostitute. Is not nice. You see them standing above white car on left. Dirty dogs!

Yes, dirty bastards. I like concrete flowerpots outside. Nice touch, brightens up forecourt.

Yes, nice. OK, now we got to HOTEL RIGA in RUSE in own Motherland, BULGARIA:

Posted Image

Hey, you didn't put that in straight, stupid Przmalsk!

Don't say that dirty word I tell you.

You said worst word in English just now anyway.

What that worst word?

'Motherland'.

Oh shit, yes. Should not have said. Only blackboys allowed to say that on TV. Sorry. OK, let's look at close-up of Bulgarian Autoshite. Here we have eight cars, a bit of a traffic problem:

Posted Image

Yes, but grey car on right is hotel mock-up to justify use of concrete for carpark.

OK, is so. Hey, Balkie, did anyone ever tell you you look like Mr Alan Titchmarsh?

Posted Image

Alan Titchmarsh? That dirty Prsmalsk! Don't you ever say that again, Andrea. You make me very angry. :x (Want to look like Mr Monty Don instead).

Cat Piss Tarp Challenge - everytime a car under a tarpaulin is spotted we try to guess what it is. Sometimes it's really easy (like your Porsche one should be) other times it definitely isn't!.

I think Andrea looks like a young Des Lynam.

You realise this one Andrea? Now I start write like, is not nice. Balkie says: Des Lynam is much of a man with big, big tache. We want grow big taches too, but have removed facial hair to fit in better at Capitalist West (don't worry, will grow back when go home, get marry). Des Lynam, this man we love. He look man enough to be Bulgar; not like other fairy-cakes on TV, e.g. Frank Bough, Noel Edmonds, Peter Purves, etc.

Same eager-beaver expression, but chin too small.

Here are a few shitespots from an afternoon's walk within four streets of my home. The pavement was strewn with dead rockets and some of the cars seemed to be covered in extra firework shite (neither of my cars luckily). Mother Nature's autumn detritus added to the general shitelike ambiance:

True, too true; just didn't want to barge in on anyone else's thread & it was important to capture that Guy Fawkes Moment. Anyway, I blame the Bulgarians. (Just hope that KruJoe isn't the owner of the Saab 900, it certainly is a beauty).

Getting back on track, DER VOELKERSCHLACHTDENKMAL in LEIPZIG long before the Wall came down:

Careful investigation reveals that the yellow Ford is a visitor from the West complete with D plate &, I think, a Leverkusen registration. Can anybody explain the mysterious chrome handle above the rear wheel of the red* car? (Note Little Maddie inside the red car too). The grey hubcapless Trabant is more like it, but perhaps that blue rubbish bin is the final touch. Obviously they laid out their extensive carparks before actually facing the problem of manufacturing any vehicles to fill them.

Anybody else got similar postcards? The Dutch ones were really rather lovely :P

*It is red in the original, but turns orange when posted.

Big fat :D at KG's posts, I fear for your mental health but keep them comink!Corolla indeed, KE20 model. 'Trabant' looks like a Lada to me, and I think the handle on the VAZ or ZAZ or ZIL is used to open the hatch in the floor so you can go icefishing from the comfort of your own backseat. I seriously read about that fishing thing years ago, dunno if it's true though.

Thought it was one of those rather weird Fords you do see abroad, but no expert as, in general, I hate almost every Ford with the possible exception of the Edsel (& no, I'm not gay, just a bit camp when it comes to cars).

Is that really true about the fishing?!? How many of them must have driven into the hole?!!!!???

It reminds me of the story about the Americans who go ice fishing & decide to use dynamite to blow a hole in the frozen lake. The guy lights the fuse, chucks the explosives as far as he can...

...and Ol' Yeller, his faithful hound, runs after the stick of TriNitroTolulene and brings it back to the idiots, wagging his tail. Luckily there was still time to throw it again, this time under his brand new Isuzu Trooper, parked near the other guys' 4x4s on the ice.

All the vehicles & Ol' Yeller were destroyed. The men got an honourable mention in the Darwin Awards.

Well, Mr stoterstangen, if you know about ZAZ's, is it true about the fishing hole?

As for Doris - not sure that the East German authorities actually provided a 'tea shop' in the HEROIC PEOPLE'S MEMORIAL TO THE GREAT PATRIOTIC VICTORY AGAINST THE FASCIST BEAST, but she might be able to get a lukewarm can of Commie Cola (flat) at a small state-run stall near the 'Inscription of Eternal Gratitude to Comrade Stalin and the Glorious Red Army' (Nachkameradschtalinuntdasherrlichrottearmeeewigdankbarkeitsaufschrift) on the other side of the Denkmal. I believe this was during the memorable occasion in 1974 when Sid drove onto the wrong ferry during their attempted 'day trip to the Isle of Wight' so that he, Doris and the Rover ended up, six weeks later, in Ngorny Karavach with an extra 23,000 miles on the clock.

Not a handle, but a chrome trim on one of a pair of 'Prince Charles's ears' air scoops for the rear mounted engine.
