  2. GTV still resting in Norfolk, but I'm intending to move the Vel Satis on soon (once I'm sure about the clutch in it), then bring the Alfa back. Unless I win the roffle Visa!
  3. I remember that, sure it was a late-70s Sapporo.
  4. I'll sell you mine for less than that, and it has MOT until November. I've scratched the itch so would like some other berk enthusiast to take it on now. Guaranteed zero profit potential, these are not cars for normal people.
  5. Upset that I missed this, the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy deffo needs to up their marketing game.
  6. The fridge/freezer chose today to break, was only noticed when things started to appear wet in the fridge. Have had to distress-purchase some bottom-of-the-range units from Currys to avoid becoming Thin_Pirate over Xmas. Also: I had to help the dog with his foreskin, which was distressing. He'd been humping something and had pulled it back past his plums, and was crying 'cos it wouldn't go back.
  7. I'm pleased to inform you that the Vel Satis is FULLY OPERATIONAL once more, after breaking down a couple of weeks back. It seems the problem was air in the clutch slave cylinder, and it (eventually) responded to being bled. It's fed off the brake reservoir and the level had got low there, but the filthy fluid coming out of the slave makes me think any leak isn't in that circuit, so I'll be checking the brakes. It's taken me some time to trust the electronic handbrake. It still seems like unnecessary complication though. This is normal... as well as the alert about the screenwash level being low. I briefly reconsidered restoring the speech function, but then I watched some YouTube vids of it in action and realised it would be telling me to 'consult my Renault dealer' every 30 seconds. Will I be brave enough to use it for work on Wednesday, potentially risking a breakdown on Xmas Eve?
  8. @Eddie Honda has the forum bike Jag now, I've "upgraded" to a Vel Satis. it's certainly better on fuel - because it's fucked.
  9. OUT: Efficient, reliable, competent... who wants that? Sold to my neighbour. . Finally sold after 8 years of procrastination. Now with @snagglepuss IN: CLK from @xtriple, love this car so no plans to move it on. I'm on the PCP bandwagon! Sounds like a washing machine on spin cycle, whilst pissing on the fireworks of supercar owners. My first roffle win. Currently stored at my brother's place in Norfolk 'cos I've run out of space. Due cambelt and MOT now. F Finally, Vel Satis from @BorniteIdentity. Currently lying dead with a clutch hydraulics fault, but it'll be fixed. Wishlist for 2020: Lexus LS400 Daf Variomatic
  10. What became of Elmo? Mrs_Pirate often asks.
  11. Home! No thanks to the RAC though - they were saying it would be 11pm at the earliest, so I took Nigel's advice and drove the bastard 20 miles home without a clutch. It was only possible because the roads were now quiet and I stuck to dual carriageway and motorway. Thanks to everyone who replied to this thread, it kept me occupied. Enjoy this photo of a cracking pair of baps as a reward.
  12. I’m on the industrial estate behind Sainsbury’s (Didn’t crash land there in case they have a time limit). Hopefully RAC will be here soon. Still feeling quite chipper but thoughts have strayed to a PCP’d Dacia Duster.
  13. Farnham, just 2 mins walk from a big supermarket thankfully. Sorry for hijacking your thread, Bucketeer!
