    A friend (and previous owner of the Holden) came down to collect the Holden to take it away and try to fix the brakes as he has more time than I do at the moment. The grin is they arrived in one of my cars that I forgot I owned as it has been out on loan for a while 62. Toyota Yaris

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mercedes-Vario-814D-1998-ex-Snap-on-Van-project-Overlander-Camper-motorcross/383393309790?hash=item594405a45e:g:kK4AAOSw8G1dudZU 'A live aboard, self sufficient camper with a mobile hen breeding unit. The chickens are kept in those baskets, then one by one released into the path of an angry cock who pops out of that hinged dog kennel looking thing. He then jumps up on the wheel arch, bums them and their eggs roll down on to that grate, which grades them. In the far right corner is the toilet. Once you've finished dropping the kids off at the pool, it's a simple matter of turning the shower up to def con 3, pressing the middle button and then using that black cable to blow your freshly laid Richard into the fuel tank to make bio-fuel with the eggs that didn't make the cut. None of the above has been tested, due to an unfortunate and unforeseen incident involving my own cock, some of the chickens and the RSPCA. I'm due for release in May 2047 and if the camper hasn't sold by then all those fluffy, sexy little wing flapping cock teasers are coming to live with me on a remote island'

    The big news of the day is project 2020 has started, my Visa GT. This morning it has gone off for some welding, new sills, inner sills repair, floor repair, boot floor repair and rear subframe mountings. It is a fill in job so progress may be slow, but I am still hoping to get it back in time to put it on the road by the end of the year.

    Run it as it is. Panels can only get cheaper and you can't see the dents from the inside. That particular seat fabric does seem prone to wear and tear on a specific section of the driver's seat so good to see yours is still solid. Patches are a regular sight on this interior style.

    If you liked the Cameroonian taxis search for documentary called "Hulk Through Hell" on YouTube. It follows people taking the 3 week journey up the Congo River in a huge boat. Just amazing. Real heart of darkness stuff. And as someone on reddit said, "Watch this and you'll never complain about anything in your life again".

    There was a doctor on the radio a couple of weeks ago , we've all heard of the body clock but I didn't realise there were millions of them inside the human body , he said one of the reasons we feel so bad when we change time zones is all the body clocks for the body are out of sync so it's hard to sleep I think this is it, interesting https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00023lw

No need to take it to driftland, it's already pre-crashed. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202001276635464 This is exactly the sort of thing I'd like to buy in a few months' time, though.

Beatties toyshop on the left with the black and yellow sign - had some cracking model railway layouts, there was one that ran on a high up shelf round the whole of the shop !

    I've never had an issue in the cold with my leather seats, it warms up in seconds. Equally in the hot, it cools in seconds. I've been in cars with heated seats (never owned one) and I often think I'm wetting myself when it's turned on.

    Just remembered I've got a brochure for these things somewhere, Ford's misguided idea that all Ford fleets would buy one for the chairman instead of an XJ6 , trouble is they were more expensive than a Jag and probably not as good to drive as a Granny 2.8i Ghia X. I only ever saw one , parked outside the Ford office just south of Oxford St in the space that at various times Mustangs and Mercury Monarchs had been seen.

    Can I say neither. IMHO? The VW Golf look was the way to go - black out the grille and put a large 'Leyland Wheel' floating in the centre like the VW roundel - with 'Austin' or 'Maxi' to the right. Would have bought the car bang up to date. But of the options on offer - unsubdivided...imagine the Golf with a fussy centre fillet in the middle. No.

    Love proper Australian cars. When we lived there we had a BF Falcon wagon on pure LPG. It had the same engine as sheffieldcortinacentre's ute i think, a 4.0 litre straight six (the Barra engine) with a green cam cover like the sierra sapphire cosworths. It was a lovely old thing, simple but comfy with great AC, loads of space and more than enough power. Brought both my kids home from the hospital in it. Obviously all the 70s XA and Xb coupes are super cool but my personal favourites were the pretty rare Chevrolet Impalas built in small numbers in RHD in the late 60s and also the tiny number of Caprice's in the mid-70s. Just realized this post is nothing to do with Australian cars in the UK but hopefully someone will find it interesting.

    The new news 24 thread

    The Jag has had a slight rumble from the NSF Wheel Bearing for a couple of month. Last Saturday I hit a pothole, which finished it off. I booked it into my local Jag Specialist - Tasker and Lacy; who quoted me 'around £200 all in' to replace it. It needs special tools, a press and the ABS ring taking off (which are pretty much unobtainium) . They had it done in a morning, genuine Jag bearing and a final bill of £246.00 inc VAT. Seems steep for a bearing, but its under warranty and after chatting to the garage owner for half an hour when i picked it up, he said he has just got one like mine in for scrap, which for a few beer tokens I can raid for all the trim parts mine needs. Sadly not the same colour, but should yeald some vital bits.

I was going to sell it before being talked into the Lake District meet, but enjoyed it so much now I am not sure.

    The grumpy thread

    I scraped the side of the A4 today. Only a light scrape but it's caught the trailing edge of the nearside front door and the leading edge of the rear door and dented them, and it's scratched the paint a bit on the front door and the rear arch. I feel like a right twat - it's not terminal damage and the car wasn't immaculate anyway, but that kind of stupid little misjudgement isn't something which normally happens to me. Properly pissed off. I was on the way home from the MOT test at the time - which it failed. Most bits are minor (drop links, brake flexi, slightly bindy rear brake) but it also needs a rear spring on the back, which isn't the sort of thing I'd normally want to take on myself, but the car isn't really worth paying garage rates to fix. Especially now it's dented.
