  1. Past hour
  2. Probably just me but how fit is this
  3. In just over three weeks we have booked flights to Nice. From there we have train tickets to Genoa for two nights. The trains we are booked on start and finish in Milan. Looked on the train company website and currently they are still running but a lot could happen in three weeks. The Genoa hotel has free cancellation up until the day before, so if the worst comes to the worst we'll just have to spend all four nights in Nice. Nice is nice. It's not a bad place to be stuck but I was looking forward to the train journey, it follows the coast all the way.
  4. that makes 2 of us! (although I was 19 when it happened) (I very much want another shot at this/a Lada now I have had comparatively lots more driving experience) best of luck @Fumbler wish I could have started driving when I was 17!
  5. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2585202718430836/ an allegro estate is always full of yum. and this does look really nice, yum yum...... what are those wheels, MGB?
  6. #28 please if it's still free. If not any old random. Cheers
  7. Phwoar, a 2107 with mirrors on both sides and hopefully slightly less vague steering! That being said, it looks really tired at just 10 years old. I'm sure I will be closer to the occasion! I have a bit of an anxiety problem at times so I'm putting it down to that. I'm only driving home on roads I've travelled for the best part of 9 years so all should be well.
  8. Ah, I see. It's 3 degrees here dahnsarf
  9. 2 randoms please. Sent from my SM-J330FN using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah it's really icy out there !!
  11. Anxious, why? - it's not your test. You should be mucho excite!
  12. Could be worse, my first driving lesson, on my 17th birthday (18th December 1997), was in one of these You'll be fine, don't worry.
  13. Been 17 for roughly 4 hours and I have my first driving lesson tomorrow... already anxious AF. I'm sure I'll be fine.
  14. I'm not sure, there is no more for sale in UK, euro prices are all over. I'd like 8 to 10. That would be cheapest one for sale.
  15. I think my home PC still has Vista Not that I use it ever... My grump is work. New job within the company starts Monday coming,but I've not spoken to my new boss since I got the job back in November. Yes, November, as my current department needed me to stay until I replaced myself, and to run a few projects. Being the last minute & bad planning type of department /company we are, my last week consists of the following, on top of my day to day 14 hours work crammed into 9.5 hours: Run project A - spreadsheets, stock profiling, data extrapolating etc. Run project B - Same deal Run project C, but keep it on the down low as not officially announced yet. This data intertwines with project A,and has the potential to fuck it up royally if I'm not careful. Reduce working capital to below budget by restricting purchasing. This means everything now comes through my department, instead of being done at branch level. Cue a stressed out team at the end of their tethers. Oh, did I mention my boss is in New York on holiday this week? So I'm office manager too technically. And one team member is on Sabbatical until next week. My boss's boss is relatively new to the business and isn't really in a position to help. Also, my 'replacement' is coming in for the next 3 days for... 'training' Guess who is expected to train her? And to cap it off, I keep getting told I'm doing great and that my department will be sorry to see me go, but they aren't exactly trying hard to keep me. The best I got was a half-hearted offer to 'match' my new salary. Yeah, stay in stressful job for same money as new, less stressful job? Erm... These next few days will be hell, and to top it off, my anxiety is through the roof, and when I get home and wind down I'm depressed and snappy. Probably as I'm starting to wonder if either department actually wants me at all, and if I'm just being used until I break... Phew! That took longer to type than I thought it would. Ps. I also found out the some re-profiling data I did yesterday didn't get uploaded properly, so my figures looked crap on the KPI.
  16. Today
  17. @Mrs6C owns a car that looks a lot like that! complete with center mounted steering wheel and column shifter* *well more a giant flappy paddle and its not for the gears! (replaced the picture with a Video link so people who aint seen the simpsons knows just what its about, and to keep @Mr_Bo11ox's phone from imploding)
  18. I hate to sound like a whinger but can we try not to repost the same thing over and over again when quoting stuff? Its already hard work reading this site on my knackered old mobile with fuck all memory left in it.
  19. I'm coming from Dunfermline but won't get a chance to go to Leven before tomorrow I'm afraid.
  20. Asimo

    eBay tat volume 3.

    "Clutch gone" might** just be that feeble bracket that supports the slave cylinder. Weld, weld, done.
  21. Hey thanks will try in the morning. Its a 2005 vw golf 1.4 petrol. She got it at 2 years old and Been trouble all the way since.
  22. Because the Mrs has been doing a lot of management cover at work it's fucked her tax contributions up and HMRC have sent numerous letters for some reason. Now I know the ins and outs, but obviously being a piss taker I've been making out she's been dodging tax, she's even got a new nickname - Jimmy Carr. Sent from my VFD 710 using Tapatalk
  23. Watched the one tonight with the ropey Burgandy Citroen BX 14RE. An orphan if ever there was one.
  24. I remember looking at some old heap with my dad at a used car dealer in Holbeck, Leeds (E34 525i IIRC) when an artic transporter turned up fully loaded. "What the fuck's that" shouts the owner, pointing at a pretty nice looking Lada Riva, to be told by the transpoter driver it was a freebie. He wasn't impressed and would've sent it back if it wasn't right on the back of the lorry. It was a similar age and in better condition than most of the stuff on the forecourt. Struggling to think of anything as comparably worthless now
