I cant remember what I had for lunch yesterday, never mind what car I had 15 years ago.

 

 

EDIT - Wait, I won a new Daewoo Matiz in 2000, which I chopped in for a mkIII Astra Sport, so that. Five door, metallic black. 1.6 16V. Nice car.

At 23, I ditched my rusty 1275cc Maestro (unkillable) and my Audi S2 Coupe (bankrupting) in favour of a £395 309 Goodwood GTI (hoontastic).

Oh, and this is my 6666th post!   :twisted:

Just unexpectedly been to look at a dream house that is for sale.  Chap opened the garage door so we could have a look.  Garage contained a Rover 600.  I didn't mention that I found this interesting in case he thought me weird and it counted against any potential sale.

 

Edit: I've just googled for the length of a Rover 600.  It is 8" longer than a Morris Oxford.

Remember me moaning about my colleague and his CRV? Well he's borrowed money from his missus and is buying an entire exhaust system from euro car parts! I'm off to help him fit it on saturday (close enough to ECP to jump into the xantia if we find a wrong part and go hit them over the head with it as and when). I'm expecting it to be not bad, any hints and tips with CRV exhausts?

The air jet for the Renault's carb appears to be correct and appears to fit, woohoo!

 

Someone in the Netherlands has found the correct radiator for the Renault IN STOCK for not-a-lot, DOUBLE-WOOHOO!

My neighbours Series 3 Land Rover that I replaced the footwells in has just been for MOT and came away with a pass and no advisories.

The tester was very complimentary about it as well.

Fairly sure it's Nick Cave if that's what you were looking for.  It just made me laugh the kid doesn't know who he is but thought he should get a pic anyway.

 

EDIT - looks as if the whole thing's a joke anyhow.

Heading back home from the local Tesco Express, I stop at the pedestrian crossing. A heavily dubbered Passat rolls up behind me, with the RIPSPEED 44000 TERAWATT SUPER MEGA DESTROYER sound system in full effect. Every time the bass drum hit his headlamps dimmed!

 

I drove off, wondering how much further he'd have to turn it up for the engine to cut out...
