Thanks for the air deflector linkage. However this is not what I was thinking. What I saw was like 10 times the size of this, in comparison.

 

It was like a perspex cowling that went all the way down the height of the window and at least half way along it, like a sort of ducket [the thing on the side of guards vans on goods trains for the guard to look down the side of the train]. When I had my Morris Oxford and was in the appropriate car club quite a lot of members had them on their cars. I wish I could recall the name.

I remember those too, I've seen them predominately in France when I was a wee lad. They were like a clear bubble and the faces of the people in the car were grotesquely distorted when you looked at them through these things.

Is that not just because they were French? ;-)

:shock: Shitting nora! WANT.

Years ago I had my Dads old car phone that he inexplicably took out of his Sterling, it was an NEC phone, I don't know where its gone since. I've always wanted one to fit into one of my Sterlings, preferably a working example. I saw one of these car phones a few years ago in a Granada I was driving. I think it was a Motorola as it had that distinctive distored *bleeeep* sound when you switched it on. Oh to have one of those now.....

Was it Winguard I wonder. I have a load of old car mags, I know for cert. there's an advert for these, must dig it out. Will doubtless also hit the motherlode of shite accessories in the process aswell.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

Great thread.

I am genuinely after some sheepskin seat covers for the Range Rover if anyone spots any, because, as any other drivers of 90's Rangies will know, the heated seats never bloody work and even when you go to the considerable faff of repairing them (as I did recently) they are tepid at best. If I can't get that 'pissed yourself' level of warmth, then wool is the next best thing.

My dad still has (somewhere) a Motorola MicroTAC Duo. 1995 vintage, with reciept and everything. Alas no box. Strange thing is that it's still fully functional - obviously no SIM in it as it's not used but the little bugger still works perfect, complete with distorted bleeping noise!
