    Bus Shite

    I can remember going to school when these were brand new, very different to the rear entry proper buses with exhaust brakes
  2. Maxi diesel? Yes, that's silly but my partner's well worn specimen was definitely ok
  3. I just avoided foot in mouth moment: I have some interest in high end Blaupunct for 1980s cars having blindly purchased a RCM 40 Toronto to fill a hole in the dash of my high end uber wagen. never seen Berlin in my occasional searches for another Toronto, or mention of it. I guess that means a Berlin is hens teeth and King's ransom territory. I was going to jump in with it's a graphic equaliser which I sometimes contemplate adding.
  4. Lidl Tiverton, chod central today Rough sounding diesel, what's that car? Moves and shows me the front end, Renault badge, no, don't know that. Shows me it's back end, Vel Satis! R5MAN or MAM? Also there, an N reg 19d ZX
  5. !!!!s parking on your drive many of the suggestions could end up with you having a conviction for criminal damage that wouldn't look good on your CV (and would probably bar you from travelling the the USA, maybe not a bad thing?). Just remember the 11th Commandment if you do take action, and that these days must include CCTV in the locality and the possibility of a CCTV system in the car itself. From reading the many postings on this subject in Speeed, Plod and the Law in Pistonheads it seems to me that there is nothing legal you can do if someone parks on your drive but doesn't block you in. Just ensure you have a vehicle that is blocked in so the police have something to act on. If you do crack a legal way to deal with the problem do let us all know. Could Zelandeth park on the local school's drive whilst not blocking anyone in? Sideways across the drive if neccessary. He might think himself lucky that the parking is only short term around school arriving/departing and that he's not close to an airport and has someone leave their car for weeks.
  6. I've got to duck out of this weekend; after 2 years Mrs K and I finally copped a dose of Covid, not that unexpected having spend a week in a coach with 40 others. Fortunately we got the current low strength version but we are left feeling weary even after a good night's sleep; not a good basis for a 300 mile drive each way in high temperatures. Being old I had qualified for the fourth booster, and as with the first three suffered no ill effects. Mrs K not being quite as geriatric doesn't qualify for the fourth booster but having been classed as vulnerable got isssued with a special set of tests, got ill, tested positive and has been issued with anti viral tablets - couriered out from the big Exeter hospital as neither of us were fit to drive to collect them. Hope everyone has a good weekend and NO FTPs
  7. Colour is about right although I would have called it Cirrus Blue; the car had a blck bootlip spoiler which this doesn't appear to have. The car I saw is at Argyl Pottery 01631 720503, no website or email. Reviews say the owner is very pleasant and that's what I recall from a visit years ago.
  8. Mrs K and I had a coach trip to Fort William; two notable possible AS spots - Friday 24th a Marbil coach that looked like the one CMS206 posted about recently heading east alongthe A82 about 2:30 as we headed for the Erskine Bridge; was it you Andy? at the pottery on the A828 between Ferlochan and Barcaldine - saw it on Sunday on the ay up and on Friday coming bac; just a glimpse of the rear and it looked much like 6C's Trevi- could it have been? it looked well cared for. So if anyone is passing that way....... In Fort William a black LHD D reg DS and he back end of a foreign 2cv or Dyane - can't mistake that engine sound And the midges didn't spot me. edited to correct - thanks Mrs C, car is either a silver of a pale metallic blue
  9. being a fool I got press ganged into this weekend's village Drama Group production; will keep my fingers crossed for my availability for the next FoD - the camper is now MoT'd which is a good start Best wishes to all, not at all envious
  10. 'how much do you want to bet that my PIP tribunal will be scheduled right on the Friday' Hope that goes well on the hearing; from what I read I think how lucky I am not to be stuck in that morass
  11. Mr Fowler looks grim, are you on his totally least favourite train class?
  12. Seems not. Missing vital information already (breakfast photo, poo count)
