  2. This is the first Mk4 Fiesta I've looked at and thought 'yep, that's shite'. Volvo was parked outside the Croatian embassy, I hope it's theirs...
  3. Long live financially illogical decisions about rubbish old cars! He's bought it back as salvage and it got dropped off at the (good, expensive) bodyshop to get fixed today. Obviously on the way back he twatted his Avensis into a kerb and needs a new tyre. Come on dad, you're only 62. Edit - hadn't read to the end of the thread, and this now feels a bit insensitive. Sorry for your loss DD.
  4. Go on then, if there's one left I'll take it.
  5. My dad bought himself a Jaguar for his 50th. After 13 years, I think it's dead. The back came out on a roundabout (diesel? He's a proper giffer) and launched him into a sign.
  6. SiC drives an Audi TDi and a Porsche, and works in IT. (he is nice though)
  7. Ok, don't think I've seen this raised anywhere else - using Chrome on Android, every time I get a notification (liked post, reply to a thread I'm reading etc) I get a bleep, even when my phone is on silent. This is the only site I've ever been on that does this, and it's an arse when, say, I'm reading on the toilet at work. Any ideas?
  8. On a similar note, I got stuck behind a learner today - in the most immaculate Herald I've ever seen. It even still had its Stanbourne Motors Triumph sticker on the back window.

    ...and here's your last lot. The yellow thing was our taxi back to the airport, any ideas? Nine seats, and the only badge was the Chevrolet one on a period correct looking steering wheel. The big Chevrolet is a bus. It was uncomfortable. It also appears you can still get Mk3 Transits in China, which I guess will please some people here.

    Yeah, Rekord I think. Also - Ssangyong Chairman...

    Right then, on to the centre of the country. A particular favourite from this batch is the Jaguar, the angle of the photo doesn't do the hilarious axle swap (from something Russian, I guess) justice - the track was about six inches narrower than it left the factory with...

    Right then, last few from Havana and then out to Santiago. Yes, someone is rolling round Havana in a Porsche 356. It was also around this time I stopped bothering with photos of Peugeot 404s as I released they were everywhere. Any clue what the thing with the Peugeot 306 lights started out as?
