  1. Err, nope. You’re on your own with that one, pal! 😂
  2. I’m not sure if there’d be much interest in a roffle for a topless mills o’matic swede at this time of year but before I stick it down at the barn for winter, I thought I’d mention it on here... Its a 2006 9-3 1.8t with just under 90k miles and a good service history. It has been Mrs NMs summer chariot of choice but has now been stood down by a Berlingo diesel...the backup plan is to park it up over winter before prepping it up for sale in the spring where it would get advertised for its market value but due to the impending arrival of another toy, if someone on here wants to win it for the frankly ludicrous sum of £12.00, then step right up!! Good bits... All electrics, roof etc in good order, decent tires all round, plenty of MOT, working air con, polishes up nicely, will come with new discs and pads on the front. Not so good bits... Silly tax bracket so £48 a month to tax, occasional lambda fault which pops on EML....will reset and stay off for a month or two, slight bit of pogweasleing on the n/s front bumper where it’s had a smart repair in the past. Only got a few pictures to hand at the minute but if there’s any interest, I’ll stick some more up in the next day or so. Roffle tickets as it is are £12 each or two for £20 and the car is located near Burnley, Lancashire. Form an orderly queue.... 🙂
  3. Not as glad as me. I had to fix the fucker or he was giving it to me for Xmas!
  4. The front section has a wheel at each corner...it’s only the trailer that is two wheeled. They’re actually inherently stable when cornered...because the back end weighs a bit with the engine, you can throw them around roundabouts at a fair pace and the front end stays remarkably upright. Caught one or two London motorists out on the run down to Tottenham garage from the M25 😂
  5. Oh yes. Delivered dozens of the things from Coventry to London many years ago. Then had to go back as they were catching fire... 🔥🔥
  6. Don’t tell me...it’s started to identify as a fucking Yorkshire Terrier?
  7. It’s still here...just been moved to the ‘politics etc’ sub-forum. If you message a mod, you can be granted access 🙂
  8. Assuming I can win it from you in a roffle before July, that'll be great, cheers! 😉👍
  9. Oh yeah...definitely up for this. Safe to say a 26 year old NA T4 will do nothing to increase the convoy speed.
  10. Local....from our resident north eastern boiler fondler Apologies for the radio silence but shortly after departure in above conveyance, my phone died and I’d forgot to pack a charger. Spark plugs? Yep... Coil pack? Yep... Tools? Yep... None of which were needed but my iPhone lead was on the desk back at work. Anyway, a massive thanks to Paul for under describing the thing in the first place, picking me up from the station and providing an excellent assortment of refreshments for the journey home... A special thanks also to his good lady and offspring for baking the gingerbread goodies above, and an apology to his very cute puppy for me almost treading on him as I got out of the van. That is one cool dog 🐶 So, to sum up, Not All Vauxhall Sellers Are Shite Nice to meet you, M8 👍
  11. A bit too late this time... I shall bear your recommendation in mind next time I’m passing through York on a collection mission. Given my track record, it probably won’t be long....
  12. Now waiting for the final train from York going a bit further north. Wetherspoons in York is shit. £1.55 for a coffee which is a quid back in Colne. Fecking robdogs. And I didn’t have time for a refill as it took me too long to find in the first place. And breath.... #firstworldshitecollectingproblems
  13. For some reason, I travelled 25 minutes up the M65 to get on a train which is now stopping at a station 5 minutes away from home. Not quite sure what happened there 🤨 Anyway, have an aerial picture of Accrington McDonalds.
  14. Here we go again... Trainshite is not actually as shite as it could have been. Just as well seeing as I’m on the fecker until the end of the line, 2 hrs away. I’m one of the few who doesn’t mind Pacers too much but even I was relieved when this arrived...
