    Am old girlfriend had a brand new one on an R plate. 
    She picked me up in it with about 50 miles on the clock and then proceeded to rag it down the bypass at 90mph!
    Brilliant cars in my book. 
    Few years later my wife (not the same person) had one as a courtesy car which had numberwang seats. I thought it was ace, she wasn't at all keen though. 
    Good buy.

    Despite not selling a set of Capri points for probably twenty years I still know you need intermotor 22740 for a motor craft distributor. 
    If only I could remember what I did yesterday. 
     
    Intermotor stuff was pretty good quality in the day but I think they may just be a name on a Chinese box these days.

    Started as a Saturday job when I was about 14. Probably sold 20 sets of points on a busy Saturday  and there was only 6 types that fitted most cars. 
    After 6 months I would get complete service kits together without looking at the books. 
    Unless it was a Renault 5 or 340 Volvo. They were a choice of 6 and still never fitted. 
    I can remember all sorts of crap like that.   Can't remember if I locked the door or where in supposed to be tomorrow though.

    Why the hatred of wasps on here? They're still gods creatures.
    Come to think of it I remember being in a beer garden once and one crawled up my t shirt sleeve and stung me in the fucking armpit, for no reason at alI. It hurt for a couple of weeks afterwards.
    I hate the bastards.

    My mate with the classic 911 decided to refurb his calipers. 
    In order to get the pistons out he decided to use an airline. 
    Worried about damaging the pistons when they popped out he cleverly put his hand in the caliper to retrieve the them, then blew the airline.
    Yeah.....
    It went well!
