  1. Yes, thanks puddlethumper. Checking back all the time to see the updates.
  2. Cool pictures. It must be quite an experience. Are there lots of Americans working in the circus / does it have an American feel to work there or is it more a branding thing?
  3. Is your RV and pug combo in this convoy?
  4. Now this all looks pretty exciting!
  5. If it's like my 1996 transporter you can just buy a new indicator stalk on ebay and plug it in (and activate using a laptop).
  6. Two years ago I was in a similar situation to you, Kit Kat, and I sold my immaculate mx5 (the first proper car that I bought when I started working) after 10 years. I nearly backed out as I made a deal with the buyer and I did feel a bit of sadness as it drove away, but since then it's just good memories and relief that I'm not responsible for it and its storage. I've re-allocated the money multiple times on pushbikes which I go out and enjoy/commute on all the time, rather than feeling like I did with the car, that I had to use it for the sake of it, to justify keeping it.

    I think I saw NOB413M in Wythall a couple of weeks ago. I'd not been there before but it was a very good day out with a bonus ride in a fleetline and an excellent secondhand bookshop!
  8. 205 XS? They feel surprisingly nippy.

    I may have posted this a while back but this one is still on school runs near me; obviously a bit of a pet but great to see it in action (photo from flickr).
  10. When I'm driving, I find bad drivers irritating. When I'm on a bike they are genuinely terrifying.
  11. That sounds like a good way to test whether you like having a van as your car, without risking your BMW. I wouldn't be without my T4 now and I hope to replace it with a newer transporter some day, but there are plenty of times when I look longingly at fast, comfortable cruisers rolling past on the motorway or on nice A roads.

    Wow, thanks for that. I've tried loads of times to find out about the coaches but with no luck, that's amazing!

    The equivalent for me was when we got a very ropey LAG panoramic with blue mirrored windows instead of the usual paramounts or supreme iv. I've looked loads of times for a photo of it (or of any of the coaches I used to go on) but with no luck. The company was called martins, based around Bridgend in South Wales if anyone remembers them?
  14. Cool. I couldn't quite get my head around the criteria so I thought I'd send pictures just in case. The paramount was the first one I bought. When I realised that bus models and bus books were a thing it blew my young mind!
