    eBay tat volume 3.

    I wonder how long these are scene-tax exempt for? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-GRANADA-SCORPIO-ULTIMA-24V-AUTO-SILVER-COSWORTH-MAY-PX/391310994181?_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3D6b424a602f8e4a98a40255842085f2ea%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D10%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D291617103080
  2. Guy at Nissan Parts rang me up yesterday to let me know that he had to re-order The Bloody Rocker Cover Gaskets because of a strange message he got from Japan. Doubt it'll make any difference to when they arrive but, ya know, nice of him to ring me to tell me that he had to do that.

    No, this is a trib-uuuuutteeee... to the greatest car in the world...awlriiighhhtt... Shoop. Shoop-a-do-ba-do-dee... etc etc so on so forth..
  4. What really makes me sad (and I mean that in the true sense of the word) is how these tossers appropriate all the nice stuff. I'm not really talking cars here (as orl modernz iz shit ain't because of the people who drive them), it's more the places they go, stuff they do, etc. Case in point: there's a pub/restaurant not far from me which has been done up from what was something analogous to a Greene King type place to this gastropub entity, where they rename 'Fish and Chips' to 'Battered Cod and Hand Cut & Salted Potatoes" and add an extra £2 to it. Anyway, regardless of that, the place was a bit tatty outside and they've made it look quite nice now, with an outdoor spot of decking by a small stream. Within about 30 seconds of the place being opened, the carpark was chock-full of 15 plate Aldis and the pub (and decking) was full of their owners. A win for the pubs new custodians but a loss for anyone who just wants a nice pint somewhere nice without being surrounded by 'do you know how much I earn?' types... and their conversation. AND their kids.

    My 106 had a manual choke. Was the total povvo spec one!
  8. Nice to see someone dedicated to un-ruining these
  9. The thing I hate about working from home is that when you're ready to work, mo'fo... the rest of the world isn't. The second you think 'hmm, well, better go and do something else'... the world comes tugging at your sleeve. Afternoons from about 12:30-4 seem to be the worst.

    No wonder people used to write songs about cars of this era. Just look at that thing. Can't quite imagine anyone penning anything about a TDCi/S-Line/Bluemotion can you...? Unless it was some waffly softly sung version of an 80s hit, used simply to sell more of the things...

Maybe, if you could combine them both and create one entity - Richard Stirling (who sounds a bit like someone Roger Moore might play) - you'd have their perfect car up there ^^^
  12. I think it's arrogance, plain and simple. Old = shit and a failure, in so many people's eyes. Unless you have the receipt to prove you paid a millionty-sheckles for it, in which case you're a success because you can spend money through the nose... I give up!
  13. On the same note, depending on my mood I either go via Birmingham or M4 when driving from Letchworth to Swansea (and vice versa). While you will always get the tools who drive at 90+ on any road, I've noticed that when going the M50/M5/M42/M40 route, they don't turn up in any great number until you're heading South on the M40. The last time I did that journey it was like someone had flicked a switch and the next thing I knew I was being passed by an S-Line everything, complete with His n' Hers mountain bikes on top. Same seems to go for the A1 when you get to around about St Neots... Someone said to me recently that a speeding ticket is like a middle-class ASBO ("Mate, how many points have you got on YOUR license?").
