  2. My auntie owned a 104 in the early 80's if that's any help?

  4. I don't. I usually spend more £££ on the front ones than the rear, too.
  5. Larkhall where they are so staunchly Protestant the curbstones are painted red, white and blue.
  6. Go to SCB at Newbridge. You can wander around all day, come out with a handful of shite and they'll charge you a fiver, geezer.
  7. Bloody nutters, the lot of you. I also wear sunglasses all the time. Get annoyed if there is dust on the dashboard. Slow almost to a stop for speed humps. Swear at other drivers in a most disgraceful manner.
  8. To give us something to think about 30 years on. Crazy Japanese designers.
  9. Has anyone been watching this on the BBC? Travel chaos! Reindeer being transported to Christmas events! Breakdowns! Grumpy truckers! This programme has it all. One of the Highways officers had a motorbike with a foldout towing mechanism for moving cars off the road. I'd never seen that before. Quite interesting.
  10. I watched The Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue the other night. It was surprisingly good and contained masses of shite. The main cop drove a dark blue Volvo, there was a P6 jam sandwich and the main burd had a Mini.
  11. Golf GTi, 25k miles in Mars red, one owner, baby/12 month ban/wife/lack of funds/work van/leprosy forces sale...
  12. More... What a beast! Passing woman grimacing at bird shit on wing. Mint 213. Mint 1.3 LX. Patina, Yo! Were these fog lights a factory item? RB5.
  13. This is a nice wee show. I bought some bits from a guy and he called me boss. I was so impressed that I went back and bought something else but he could only call me pal. This is a Honda NSX, apparently. This couple travelled up from Carlisle and advised me in relation to Triumph Acclaims that parts are hard to come by. Not that type of cougar, unfortunately. Complete with roof top radar tracking device, NASA style. It overtook a milk float back in '99.
  14. Nice one. Rancid grapefruit juice has a similar affect, btw.
  15. I need new wiper arms for my old Civic and whatever I have tried I cannot get the existing ones off. I even bought one of those Laserline-type removal tools and still no joy. They just will not budge. Am I missing something obvious here? Any hints or tips, dudes? Please...
  16. Honda Championship white. Riviera Blue RS2000 Saab orangey-orange.
  17. Fapp, fapp. I remember a character in the series Southland had a black Challenger. They did a reet better job on this than the Charger, for sure.
  18. A Mark 1 Honda CRX. A Triumph Acclaim. A Lada Riva. YOLO!
  19. I keep my left foot held lightly on the clutch pedal most of the time. I do this even if I have a foot rest to hand(foot). The volume on my stereo machine has to be set to an even number. If it's not I become slightly aggravated. I always have my sun visors down, even during winter. If parked on a slight incline. I like to roll the car for as long as I can until I need to engage gear. I'm sure there are more, so I am...
