One for the why is that there crowd. A car that should not exist in a place where it should not be.

I can't do a screen shot or a clicky and "there it is" thing so will tell you how to find it on Google earth...

 

Bartlett Texas, on E. Clark st at the corner of Dalton st. a white car.

Probably the only person on here who has ever been in one is Chinatom. But this is the special version, made for the wide open roads of very rural Texas.

 

It made my day and googling the name of it put a silly grin on my face.

 

it stars in this utube at 10.00 and a bit

The Lord of the Rings films, specifically tonight Return of the King. The arrival of Gandalf and Pippin to Minas Tirith, The lighting of the Beacons of Gondor, The Ride of the Rohirrim - I love it all, in no small part due to the music by Howard Shore. I won't watch them for years at a time but every time I do I feel like I ought to every week.

Aye, plenty of amazing moments in there.
Jackson still deserves a massive slap for shitting all over the ending though.

The thing to do there is to park as close to the offside of the offending car as possible so they have to get in through the passenger door.

Just received the Octavia back after having the MOT advisories done; coolant flange (leaking) and new sensor, front discs and pads (worn) and cam cover gasket (leaking). I haven't had time to do it myself and found a good local backstreet guy.

 

Ever since I bought the car it's had a fluctuating idle, occaisional overboosting and has run a bit rich. I've not been able to work out why. No EML and all gauges bang on. Only fault codes that came up were a VW generic some shit is wrong but we're not going to tell you what. On googling it came up with a list of half the engine bay. I therefore filed it under 'Fuck that' and ignored it. 

 

Replacing the coolant sensor appears to have fixed these faults. WIN!

Why is a leaking cam cover gasket an advisory? Ridiculous.

Not terribly. It was useless in the workshop unless it was right next to you. Wasn't too bad in the bothy if we kept the doors shut.

They already do though that's the problem,
I was sitting in the car waiting on the misses and a car pulled in next to me and threw the door open against mine, I got out to look at it and said be more careful and the reply from the women was, you shouldn't park so close, wtf

Years back a family of chavs got out of a Corsa B and I saw the driver smack his door off my Renault with a complete lack of emotion. Being too much of a wimp to confront him I just asked the other half to return the favour with the passenger door once he was out of sight.


She waited until I was reversing out before striking which left a bit of a mess.
