Bit of a shed spotted around the corner this morning and I had to laugh! (I do have a spotted thread of my own, but as almost no one ever looked at it, I'm posting here).

Gareth at work has a pool car for the day to go for a meeting, we went outside to fill the form in, after being told it was mint condition, they've never had one back like it (was a company car before the person left)...

IMG_20180313_093712.jpg

The dent in the passenger door is particularly fun, been opened into a wall, dented it on the crease line, and left the brick marks in there... Oops

Uncomfortable as fuck though, I sat in it for a laugh

If you cut out that image and carefully PVA the edges together you'll have a nice model of a Sierra that's been tagged up by someone called Dent.

Just claim its true to life, and you painstakingly recreated the damage and panel gaps on the actual car.

Followed a Reddit post about Eastern European ghetto's. Had a street view link to some place in Slovakia.

 

First impressions - what a miserable place. No redeeming qualities.

Still, lets have a look in the other direction, see what this place has got going for it... if anything...

Emailed me a link earlier to a £900 mk6 Escort estate.

I was talking to my sister about Ken dodd and we got talking about celebrities we'd met

She said her and my brother in law were in London when he saw lemmy from Motorhead walking towards them

He stopped him and asked for an autograph

Sure have you got a pen

No

Well numbnuts I can't sign anything then can I , do you think I carry pictures and pens

He then flicked his finger on my brother in laws forehead and walked off

That's way better than an autograph on a bit of paper

Reminded me of a trip to Florida years ago

We were in universal studios , the grinch show was on , we saw him walking towards up heading for the show,it wasn't jim carrey obviously but looked just like him , film quality costume

Mrs wack got all excited because she loves the movie , stopped him and said can we have a picture

Instantly he said no lady but you can have This, did a massive burp and walked off.

She had a look of horror on her face , did you see what he did , I was doubled up laughing , what did you expect, he's the grinch, it was fantastic

I was in a rush so didn't get a photo, but I did smile.

 

Sticker on the back of a Toyota Aygo:

 

"My other car is a horse.  And it's still quicker than this!"

 

Also didn't get a photo because I was test-driving a ruined Saab.

 

We used a petrol station to turn around in when we headed back to the dealership.  Had to squeeze past a Tesla that was sitting at the pump.  Didn't realise until we were level with it, and I don't think the dealer really understood why I'd found it funny.

Noice!  Been a while since I saw a wedge TVR on the road.  I did see a slightly newer Griffith embedded in the barrier on the A11 on Sunday - looked like the driver had run out of talent exiting a damp roundabout.

Just been reading the KKK thread.  Both parties have said things like "lovely chap, a joy to meet you" etc.  How often do we see that here?  All the time, I reckon.  Shiters flog each other unwanted old cars with known faults, and everyone's happy.  Show me another forum on which this could happen!
