I have dug out the second book from the pile and scanned all the car related pages.

 

Apologies for the poor quality, the photocopier is quite old and I was a bit haphazard lining the pages up!

 

No need to apologise, they're plenty acceptable; thanks for taking the time! Edit: Have now updated my profile photo as a consequence.

 

Got to admit that when I was scrolling down and got to item 21: Garage door, I was fully expecting a bit of 1970's technical drawing trolling, i.e. this:

Matt Berry’s new album of TV Theme tunes.

https://soundcloud.c...-being-served-1

This Acid Jazz version of “Are you being served” is just masterful. Looking at the track listing I am looking forward to getting my cd in October as the Rainbow theme tune has to be worth a listen, as does a funked up version of “The Good Life”

(Might have to listen to an ad first, but it’s worth persisting)

Another one off the bucket list:  Local chippy does free delivery, so just ordered a takeaway and it's arrived. The chippy is about 20 foot from my front door. SUCCESS.

As far as that?  I could see the pizza shop from my first flat and they were still happy to deliver.  How I'm not twice as wide as I am tall, I do not know, because they were always really generous with proportions and so amiable you just kept going back for more stuff.  They did the best cheesy chips I've ever had.  Aw... now I'm sad, I want amazing first flat cheesy chips now.

Just found a picture of my capri from a few years back at a show in the pedestrian area of hanley

It reminded me of the story behind it, the marshal looked and said "you are definately going there"

Photo249.jpg

I was there for a good while then it became shop opening time, a real miserable bint opened up the shop and was all in a flap, went stomping up and down then went to the marshal who was close enough for us to hear and she said loudly "with that there (pointing) how are people supposed to get past with pushchairs" quick as a flash I shouted over "you sell dildos not rattles" everyone was in uproar with laughter, she was not impressed the Marshall told her that the capri was a sex icon, despite the look of the picture there was plenty of space to get by, I wanted to ask if I could borrow the mannequins to pose around the car but I thought how miserable she was that may be a bad idea, you would think working in a sex shop she would be happier

It's funny how these things bring a smile to your face years later

This put a grin on my face!

Was surprised when they were able to look these up on the parts system...

Was even more surprised when this packet actually arrived along with the more standard service parts.

How many companies could find you a couple of lenses for the dashboard of a van that's not been made since 1995?

Never mind the fact that they treated me like royalty in their glossy dealership, despite my turning up in a crusty old van!

It's funny how these things bring a smile to your face years later

A few years ago I was building and racing electric cars and was invited down to Prince Charles Eco festival on the Mall. We did runs up and down with Kryton off Red Dwarf doing the commentary. There were loads of stars there we mixed with and it was a great laugh (meeting Stirling Moss was a high point). At the time one of,our sponsors was King Dick tools and we had a big king dick sticker on the side. The whole event was sponsored by Siemens and you had to have one of their stickers somewhere to be involved. It was only after the event when I was showing a mate the pics that He clocked we had put the Siemens sticker right under the king dick one so it read King Dick Siemens. It was a genuine accident but still makes me laugh that all these stars and members of royalty walked past it looking like that. The owner of King Dick is an bike racer (The king of Mallory in case anyone knows him) and thought it was brilliant. I will try and dig the pics out.

Wife went into pet store which also sells to farms. She saw "training treats" - salmon, venison, rabbit.

At first she did'nt realise these were the flavours - she wondered how you would train a salmon.

Mate got is Nissan serviced. He got a nice wee video of it and the mechanic says it passed its health check, and body check etc.

Got me thinking if i put the Shuma into Kia

 

"Hello, my name is Alex and we have health checked your Ce'ed, sorry Rio, sorry Kia thing. We are pleased to say we have noted the half a ton of filler on the rear arches, the galloping rot on the front subframe, and the slight hesitation at 2000 rpm. But we please to say it passed the health check"

Courier has just dropped off a parcel containing a second hand 3/8" snap on breaker bar. It came with a nice handwritten note and this free gift. A pre-shrunk 1/4" baby breaker bar.

Not mentioned in the advert, just a nice thought by someone.
