    Squire_Dawson reacted to Pillock in AS in the Community - The Association of Associated MASSIVS 01/01/23   
    Thanks all for making it a lovely day out. Felt very social indeed, in fact missed half the cars going though and hardly took any photos! Too busy chatting.
     
    Highlights:
    * The 59 reg Seat Ibiza that needed a jump and then ran on two, possibly one, through the Shed of Shame making a noise not unlike a Kubota. Bidding reached £590 and then they rightfully kicked it out of there before we were submerged by unburned petrol.
    * The madness that was one (black, definitely* never been a taxi) Zafira making £725 and then the very next, better specced, lower mile one making £320. Guess which one I chose in the game, and guess which one Mrs_Pillock chose?
    * Having an attack made against my life by an auction driver in a BMW 7-series. I was minding my own business and the next thing I know he's gunning the engine and driving straight at me. Well, that or he tried to get it through the roller shutters next to my seat at 2mph and took a chunk out the bumper just after the hammer fell. Buyers went straight back to haggle some money off
     
    There was a gangsta Merc CLS with cutaway arches, Halfords wheels and an obscured VIN number

     
    There was this.... thing.... that had a variety of 'shiters guessing how it had been painted but most of them revolved around "from a distance", "with their eyes closed" and "using a paintball gun filled with humbrol enamel". It had been painted both top and bottom, but not at the same time so there was still a join line. You can literally get your hand inside the engine bay through the panel gaps.

     
    This was my burger. 

     
    This was the inside of a Range Rover foglamp



    Sloth, do you still have any old auction sheets that are scannable? I feel the need to BIG some DATA and see how long some of last year's tat lasted.

    If they were all listed on eBay from different areas of the country they would be laughed at for the worthless junk they are, if they were even deemed worth crowing about in the first place. Just because the site has some 'legendary' status does not change the fact that they are all still hopeless pieces of shit which ought to be stripped and cubed at the soonest opportunity. There are loads of well preserved examples of each of these cars and when they come up for sale hardly anybody gives a wank. Get over yourselves FFS, its hardly a treasure trove.

    2019 MOT no. 3 has occurred at Rocker Towers as well.....T25 just needed some switch cleaner on the hazard warning switch and a couple of wiper blades.  Unfortunately, the coolant and oil leaks are not good news although I knew about the coolant one.   Really going to bite the bullet on this one and suck up the cost of a new engine later in the year.   I want to go part time before Summer 2020 and the van will be essential to my new-found leisure time.....

    Ive commented before though that since the 90's cars have got very boring in their palate 
    Look at a picture of a car park in the 70's or 80's and it was a sea of colour - look now and its just drab.

    There’s loads of those old telephones with dials still in our substations at work, most still work too. They all seem to be black, brown or beige.
    They’ve probably been in there since the places were built in the 50’s and 60’s.
