  1. At shitfest 2019 he had a sensible haircut. Respect lost 😂😂😂🙈🙉🙊
  2. I used to get kit car magazine before I was erm an engineering student. I really really wanted one if those.
  3. So an update, Last week, the omega wouldn't start after 4 months. Battery dead, and when jumped from another car, it just turned over. Omegod to the rescue with a crank sensor. Started first time of asking. I've been in touch with various people, and I have a pair of good secondhand genuine 3.2 Cats (4 cats to be accurate) on their way, and a full Cat back Jetex system, I need to pick up from the wirral. A bloke not far from me, is fitting the exhaust and changing the gearbox oil and gearbox filter at the same time. The battery seems to be holding it's charge. Hopefully it might have survived ? maybe. And then i will be pressing it into use. I wish there was a way I could get my wife to drive it, but apparently it's "too big"
  4. I've got RFI tags in all our cars, so am automatically charged. Every now and again I get £10 taken out of my account to top up my misery gateway account. My daughter's boyfriend, crossed it twice in 2 days by mistake, in her car, so i was charged 4 times. The dickhead thought it was free because her car had a tag.
  5. I've seen the way your wife drives. She brakes quite hard. No anticipation. Everything is a surprise. That was before she needed glasses. 😂😂🙊🙉🙈😇🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤗🤗🤗🤗
  6. And until 10 years ago was derelict. Further down the prom, there's a 1950s coffee shop. It's got the same decor and furniture it's had for 60 plus years. Wait. It opened in 1939 Brucciani P L Marine Rd W, Morecambe LA4 4AT 01524 412000 https://maps.app.goo.gl/hY5kuLgBL4xo3kPdA
  7. I was doing my self assessment yesterday. Whilst in my on line tax account, I noticed I could check my old age pension estimate. Seems both me and my wife have already paid enough national insurance to qualify for a full pension in about 15 years time. Which is over £9k each. Add that to the various private pensions we have, which are not great, but should add a similar amount, I no longer fear getting old. May not be on an index linked final salary scheme, from the civil service, but will not starve. I no longer give a shit about whether I'm in the top or bottom 10%.
  8. Indeed. Mortgage at 15.5% when I'd planned it to be 9% Our Current mortgages are fixed at 2.4 and 2.22232 %
  9. My Dad hasn't owned a second hand car since the 1960s. Either he's had company cars, or he bought new in cash from a local dealer, with no discount and a pisspoor trade in value. He got made redundant in the early 80s and had his company cortina taken off him, and within a week had bought a brand new base dangley mirror beige 1.6 Seirra Estate, with half his redundancy, because you need a car to get to interviews. It stayed in the family for more than ten years when it was pretty much scrap with more than 150k on.the clock. Since he retired in 2001, he's bought 3 focus estates from his local dealer and replaced them at 8 or 9 years old with about 100k on the clock, giving the dealer at least £55k (plus always serviced by main dealer at inflated prices) I'm thinking the PCP lease option every 3 years would have been no more expensive, for him.
  10. https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/forms/pre-form Why do they get away with it? Because nobody is prepared to grass them up ?
  11. If I buy a battery, exhaust and a cam belt and pay to have them fitted, it will cost more than the car cost me. I'm doing it, because I can't be arsed not to.
  12. Moved omega to my "lawn" . Attached battery charger. I'm sure I'll need a new battery, but I had it on charge all afternoon, and it had 12.5 V showing by tea time. Will reattach it tomorrow, and see what it gets to. And whether it held any charge overnight. Note the rear wheels are on our land, but the rest of the boot is overhanging next doors "wild flower meadow"
  13. The mk2 cavalier convertible, has a particularly bad reputation.
