I had a comedy brake moment in the Alto this morning. 

 

About 10 days ago I'd been out washing one of the cars and left a bucket sitting, I'd forgot about it and went back inside. Within about an hour I had a well known old dick that lives in the street greeting at me to shift it because he had to "look at the bloody thing every time I go in my gate". Not sure how often he goes in and out his gate an hour, but there you go. He's also moaned at me in the past for putting my bin out too early, taking it in too late, spannering considerately in the residential parking area and cutting my grass about 7:30pm one night in the summer because he was apparently trying to sleep. 

 

His gate faces onto aforementioned shared parking area and he gets in an awful fankle when he can't get parked in the space directly outside. Knowing the Alto wouldn't move for about a week, I made sure to park it in the aforementioned space and left it there until this morning. When I parked I unknowingly yanked the handbrake up to 11. When going to drive away the rear drums were well stuck, rather than try and rock them free, I made sure to do so in the loudest fashion possible, one free'd off, the other one stayed stuck in place as the little alto dragged it's screeching arse about 80 yards up the road before it free'd off. I would consider myself to be pretty civilly aware and responsible but I hope it woke Victor Meldrew up.

I really want a Nissan Pao. I think one would suit me, and I it. Yes the initial cost of entry is high - but the bar prices are cheap and you seem to get a complete refund when you leave, perhaps even extra compensation.

I think an automatic would annoy me- I do like to feel involved when hustling along an old heap, but maybe I’m wrong? For example my 190 I would accept as an auto - but never the sierra.

Anyone here had one?

Transit update 400 motorway miles has seen it use no oil or water it's also noticeably quieter at speed or it damaged my hearing on the way North not sure which.
How it can use no oil whilst leaving a plume when pulling away I don't know?

Mother in laws merc burst a brake pipe, it's gone to the local hot stox racer for a new one, the drive to his place was interesting*

RX300 has a noisy alternator bearing, ordered a new alternator as there's no time for it to be off the road whilst I rebuild the original - I hope it's not a swine to fit.

Chatting to a colleague at work yesterday and, whilst I knew he was into buying old chod at auction, doing it up, then flogging it on at profit, usually high end stuff (his daily is a Cayenne) he staggered me with his latest acquisition - a Renault Wind (aka Twingo roadster). He then proceeded to advise me of the offer he's recently received.

Yes

 

"Golf"

 

Ah yes...

 

"GTI"

"Thinking about it"

 

How much ?

 

"£500"

 

GIB

 

"But it's been under a tarpaulin for about three years"

 

Don't care, GIB

 

"Hmm, I suppose I could....actually just got rid of (something) so I've got space in my lock-up"

 

Just fucking GIB

 

Top bloke - I think he buys junk off Copart and when he realises the job is too massive, flogs it back through Copart at minimal* loss.

 

Classic Autoshiter. He does know of this place.

Schwinng! Is that on Compomotive MOs? One of my favourite wheels.

Thread please, I love these!

 

Yes they are Compomotive's, quite a few GTA's were fitted with aftermarket wheels due to the horrendous cost of the original 255 45 15's (£350 a pop). I think these really suit the car. Edit you can still get the Michelin's! £430 each now though.

An interesting theory, and one not exactly challenged by this article I've just been reading. Fairly sure the Britannia Bridge is, and always has been, single carriageway in each direction. Certainly was when I crossed a couple of days ago. And every time for the last 15 years :?
