    Right outside Holborn tube station in the middle of London, and there's some mid-20s idiot (the type that usually drive blacked-out A4s etc) in an M5 at the crossroads. As soon as the green light's on, he does a full throttle start, from the left into the middle lane, cutting up a bus, and he bins it into someone's MG ZT who's come from the right and (presumably) run a red/not stopped. M5's in limp home mode, ZT's dead, pissing out red fluid of some sort. Been waiting a long time to see one of these pillocks get what they deserve.

    Fixed up a 1983 Compaq "Luggable". Now all I need is a big brick of a cellular telephone, a Cavalier with a Bon Jovi tape in the AM/FM and I'll be set for life.

    Im currently working two days a week at the Strontian Post Office which is a 300 year old lead munitions store from the Napoleonic Wars.The lead was mined locally.My employer lives in the building like Uncle Bulgaria of the 1970s way of doing business.We have two operating fuel tanks..unleaded or diesel...when a car pulls up...they lift the filler....a buzzer wakes me up....i hit 1 or 2 START. Then they pay cash..credit..Allstar [fish farm and estates] or farm -business credit which they all have their own books which i have to rummage thru.I then have to hand write in the ledger each transaction...if they buy chocolate i then have to deduct that from the petrol and add back into the General Store...the rest of the time is being confronted by locals who are shocked to be served by someone they last saw when he was knee high to a slow-worm [im 46]...they all get their own assortments of newspapers..The Press and Journal...Peoples Friend and two copies of The Times...whilst sweeping out the shop of which the glue never worked on the 1980s linoleum...i drink Irn Bru..eat cold pork pies and wonder why people speed around in new petrol Land Rovers..btween sly smoke breaks i pick wild raspberries that grow around the building and pumps...then i have to hitch a few miles home...which is now becoming easier as as the re-recognised man in black..

    The Met police removed the wheel trims from their V8 P6s because under heavy acceleration/wheelspin the trim chopped the valves off.

    My first properly new picture and a great way to kick off a new week.  I had this urge to draw something inspired by Russian religious ikons this morning and instead ended up with this, which I'm actually rather pleased with.  Certainly the sort of thing I'd like to draw more of, so we'll see how I go.  Sam Glover should also be credited for unwittingly providing the inspiration for the content.
     
    Should you wish to buy the original of this it is for sale.

    This was for Ashes to Ashes - had to be a Dolomite as it was set in 1982 and it was supposedly a rental car (plot point). I saw some production photos from this on the Dolly forum, they had 3 identical Dolomite HLs for that. The one that got wrecked was fucked structurally and mechanically, they just dressed it up to make it look good for the cameras. The other two were good - sold on eventually. See here - scroll to the bottom, there's a full explanation - though it seems the guy's speculating, I can't make much sense of it. It half makes sense, though.
    They also had a debadged green Dolly 1300 as a prop car for the first series - it was on C&C and eBay a while back for £2500 with a main character's police badge supposedly in the glovebox.

    Don't. Good doors are getting thin on the ground. Ram their heads on the bonnet, there are loads of those.

    Don't worry, the Mk3 steels are better than the alloys that were on and my eventual goal is Mk1 steels and hub caps.  I'm also unlowering it.  Oh yes, I'm just that awesome.

    Ah, a 16vee! Great if your dad won't let you buy a GTi.
    Sell Speedlines and add Renault turbine wheels, or the original ones (silver Williams ones), and you're on to a winner.

    That will probably fetch 2k. I've been with a mate to buy worse and paid more (with less miles OBV) and with a cheap lick of paint and 3 weeks work turning it into a camper it'll bring a 3k profit.
