This.

i should have bought a few sets and gifted folks

i only found one error too, on the Vauxhall FE page. OCD complete.


There are quite a few errors. It happens when things are done in haste.
F*ck your Honda Civic, I've a horse outside,
F*ck your Subaru, I have a horse outside.
And f*ck your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside,
If you're lookin' for a ride, I've got a horse outside

Monday night challenged oldest Lobster_child to a game of Top Trumps. He was somewhat blown away when he discovered that our van was included in the cards :)

Sorry I have not seen any crisps, or at least by the time you get here Mrs6c and myself will have eaten the evidence!

 

To say those salt and pepper kettle chips are quite moreish is an understatement. They're like heroin to a junkie!

It's taken a lot of careful thought to pick just 10 from so many deserving candidates, but here's my Top Ten from the classic parking. Some pretty obscure stuff here and a couple of shiter-owned vehicles made the cut,

Some corrections. It was 4000km in the Mighty Dacia, and loads of cars have seats that can be made into a bed! Nissan Prairie, Mitsubishi Delica, I think Saab even claimed you could do so with the original 95.

 

As you say though, very hard to pick just ten. The metallic green Cavalier SR pressed my buttons rather hard. Brown dashboard with beige interior!

Er, it appears a certain Dacia photobombed the official shot of the three winning cars... (and the Invacar, behind a dustbin).

Brilliant video of the trip and the FotU cars.  A minor comment: the Fiat 124 became the Lada.  The 125 became the Polski Fiat/FSO.

Waltzing in stylishly late to the party...

Here's my FoU report...

Owing to child/gf in tow who would want fuller facilities we opted not to camp at the FoD and after washing at a local jet wash we made outer way straight to Stowe

20180714_114832.jpg

On arrival in the trusty Saab I spotted some AS types and was waved at by Ghosty and (I think) David Fowler....

Who I proceeded not to see again for the entire show! I R disappoint

20180714_110714.jpg

Ian was busy with adoring fans any time I got near so I made do with a photo with TWC...

The Saab didn't look out of place and people had a nice chat with me about it in the short time I was sat by it having a cuppa

20180714_114724.jpg

Only spoke to a handful of Shiters. Goid to catch up with eifion, to meet Mat the cat (He's the one with the V8 stellar right....)

And owing to bored child we scampered off right after awards. So no FoD action for me...

But I dud grab this nice Saab shot on the way out...

20180714_142046.jpg

Next time I'll FoD it and get more time to speak to real life Shiters..

Tooodle pip!

There's probably a law against jet washing kids and even girlfriends might object.
