  1. That's Maine Road Manchester, the old home of City (v Stoke looking at that). I knew that before clicking on the pic and going "search Google for this image". Try it, I notice amongst the stock images form Alamy that were similar were other grounds with Invacars, including a bit of video. Something to do on a Sunday.

  9. In terms of what happened to Invacars, when my grandfather died in the mid 60's my parents told the relevant department and they sent a man around who simply collected it and took it back to the local depot. In terms of the missing posts, this site is backed up, talk to the mods, they may* be able to help.
  10. My mother's quack wrote a very strongly worded letter to them. A week or so later she got everything back, no apology or anything. I understand that the whole system is now designed so you fail. Make sure if asked to attend you ask them how?, are you providing a taxi, is it at ground floor level (as I cannot climb stairs), will you be able to help me in / out of transport etc. You need to lay it on thick.
  11. So are you keeping it, or offering it to Mrs May as the car to drive away from Downing Street in?. I was waiting to see what happened as I don't enter many rofflez and the last thing I wanted was to be in two or three then find I've won the lot! It is nice, and Mrs BMH would possibly love it. My luck is I'll win JohnF's Merc that Mrs BMH didn't like the look of!
  12. There's nothing like a happy ending to a movie / story / TV show / Autoshite car thread.
  13. Exactly what happened to my mum. "Can you stand at the sink and wash pots "? "Yea, I have to I live on my own" "Tough shit, you're fit". You need a good quack to write a letter including the classic phrase "you have failed in your duty of care towards me". Those words generally strike fear into most people who have any form of responsibility as 'Injury lawyers for you etc' start rubbing their hands.
  14. Sounds like a deal been done here and I can waste, sorry, spend my pension money on a different roffle...
  15. That's a phrase you never hear in my part of the world.
  16. I've never, ever, in over 45 years of fucking about with cars (and buses, bikes etc) replaced the handbrake levers. BFO hammer, wire brush and grease ( and the odd burning torch with buses) has always sorted the problems out.
  17. Just showed this to Mrs BMH as she fancies an auto. Doesn't do anything for me she replied. So, sadly, I'll have number 42 please.
  18. Getting a friendly wave from the driver of an Austin Healey 3000 when I put my hand out of the Ducato van window and gave him the thumbs up when he overtook me this lunchtime.
  19. It is a dog, jesus wept that's well fucked, makes my MGBs look pristine. Guess that's not going to be cheap, or easy.
  20. Is there an updated list of who's got what number?
  21. Back in the hospital eye clinic Tuesday. Hopefully the paste I'm putting in my eye every 6 hours will loosen the last bits and they'll be able to scrape it out. Fortunately it's my bad eye that has dry amd (age-related macular degeneration ) in it.
