That it's still possible to see this sort of thing in 2018


What, rust on a truck that’s between 16 and 27 years old?

It always amuses me that e46s vie with the PT Cruiser as the car that's too shit for Autoshite,

At work earlier and a super clean R33 Skyline GTS-T pulled up alongside me at the lights, piloted by an aging East Asian man, clearly living the dreams of his youth.

No body mods except a set of Rota wheels.

Sounded glorious pulling away.

Yeap thats the one they are all getting hour long sets plus the headliner gets 75 mins.

Sort of they are doing the Britrock tour as the full band. CJ and Ginger did an accoustic tour which was great and got me back into them after last going to a gig in the late 90's.

Used to see stuff like this a lot in Birmingham. Asian folk tend to pool their finances, so a nice sports car belongs to the family, not the individual. Not a bad way of doing things really.

They do the same with houses don't they. I have several Asian friends that live with their whole family in a huge house. Personally I think they are mental, I couldn't think of anything worse but they probably look at me, skint as owt, squeezed into my 3 bed semi, trying to pay for everything myself like I'm the mad one.

My birthday today. Had a very nice time driving my very exciting Fiesta quite a bit and went to the Haribo shop in Pontefract!

Of course a trip to Weatherspoons was also worked in :-)


Drove past the Haribo shop today. Staying in Pontefract tonight.

And this doesn't look iffy at all.

 

The crossed out VIN relates to a regular old BMW

The new VIN related to a BMW Alpina.

 

I'm wondering if this is a regular thing when they made an Alpina out of a factory BMW? This seems to suggest so

It is. Alpina have been a VIN issuing manufacturer for a while now, the BMW one gets crossed out as in the photo.

The bmw one is handy for looking up parts online.

If you tell yourself that one of your problems today was an excess of beer in the house, that counts as productivity.

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.

Lol, been looking up some old late 90s adverts adverts for a pretty cool advert I last saw around 97/98 related to banking which involved some chap running and getting cornered by some "gangsters" then for some unknown reason they start playing rounders/baseball (it was a UK based advert) and some car windows got smashed. I remember there being a BMW 635i and a P38 Range Rover in the advert, still not found it mind, but....

I never knew there were so many 'chatline' adverts back then, or at least I never noticed, this must have been some sort of pre-Facebook thing. I wonder how popular they got and what happened to them since (almost certainly closed down due to; internet)

Some adverts seemed more interesting back then, though money adverts were still very annoying ( that Blue telephone selling loans on 0800 2 15000 :sigh:)

One car insurance advert featured a large ginger bloke with a red '87 XR2 complaining about his car insurance. Cosmetics adverts have never changed, featuring overly glamorous women with American accents selling cosmtics etc...
