  1. So what?, It's your car. Your storage, your channel, your choice. If you listened to what the internet had to say, you'd probably never sell a car, ever. Easy for people to say when it's not their space, their time and their money. You never use it, let's be honest. If there's no plan to do something that makes you use it more, then it's a pretty easy decision to let go as far as i can see. And i've said it many times before, you need a hack. Something you don't care about but is dependable. It doesn't need to be interesting at all, or a content car, just a car you can use outwith filming and getting you to and from the unit for the interesting stuff and can jump in and go home when things are getting frustrating.
  2. I'm sort of opposite when it comes to Koreans. There are some Hyundais i don't mind. The Mk1 and Mk3 coupe's were nice (but i don't fit in either), The Getz was a decent little car and for some bizarre reason, probably because it's big, old fashioned and likely awful, i quite like the Terrecan. Came very close to buying one a month back. Agree on the Ioniq as well.... but squint a bit and there's a lot, and i mean A LOT of Mk8 Honda Civic to it in the details. Kia for me are the offenders of undesirable shite. I don't get them at all. So dull they are almost offensive. There is pretty much not a single vehicle they have ever made i'd like to own, bar 1 exception. The Mk1 Sorento. XT trim, in blue (Or black) yesplz.

  4. Lovely. I really, really need to get mine sold at some point. Just one of those out of sight out of mind things that i've never got around to sorting.
  5. How does it ride? These are semi on my radar too right now, like the look and general proportions of them etc, but i miss my Disco, and not sure these really fill that void. I don't mind the big old wobbly bus thing at all. It's part of the fun. I keep hearing these just don't feel like a 4x4 at all, they feel more like an estate car on small stilts, seating position etc just feels pure car. My gut feeling impression on these is they are probably very good with all the usual good Volvo traits of solidity, great seats, great heater etc but probably don't quite ride as squishilly as you'd hope because they try to mask the size and weight of it to be more 'AN Car' to drive in corners?
  6. My local one is closing too. I use it for convenience. Have done all my life. A lot of elderly people in the area etc though actually need it. Looks like they'll need to drag themselves into town to do anything in person. Not ideal. I know you can do stuff via post offices now, but anyone who thinks that's a solution clearly hasn't been in a post office in the past 10 years..... It's a battle to even send a parcel nowadays without standing in a 45 minute queue. In fact the one nearest my branch (and probably a reason they decided to shut this TSB) can't handle their current customer base!, it will often take 3 or 4 visits to even find a queue short enough to think there's a chance you'll be out within the hour.... Now they're going to be the defacto bank of the area? aye fucking right 😂 It's the ones like Ft William, Forfar etc that are the really stupid ones to shut 'Ah but you're only a 20 minute drive away from another', great. What about peoples grandparents that don't drive in places like this? That can quickly become a 2hr round trip, easy, Just to go to the bank.
  7. Damage looks even worse in daylight!
  8. Roofs apparently been ripped off a pub about 10 minutes from me. Looking at the damage i can see from the video circulating, i just hope nobody has been hurt. No reports of injuries i've seen so far, fingers crossed.
  9. Don't think it's going to be too long until i lose power. Lights have been flickering all night but are going properly mental now and looking at the power cut tracker they're just getting closer and closer. Been a major failure out by the ferry that has apparently taken out over 657 postcodes on its own. Seems like pretty much my local area and the town centre are the only ones not having issues yet. A lot of the local roads now closed due to fallen trees etc. Tay bridge is now fully closed as well. Surprised its taken this long to be honest!
  10. Mate just sent me this 😂
  11. I'd say odds are that's not happening, it's already down to cars only, 30mph and folk are coming off with brown trousers and begging them to close it. Forecast to get worse in a few hours.
  12. The boy around the corner from me lost half his garage roof about an hour ago and i'm fairly sure the old shed out in my back green that's been leaning ever more precariously for the past 2 years is now flatpack. And the big skips outside have now went flying into a neighbours car....that's going to leave a mark. I was in that space yesterday, glad i lost it now 🤦‍♂️
  13. I have a Bburago gullwing somewhere... Nice to know i'm sitting on so much money....not! 😂😂😂 Some of the early 90's 1/18's are junk. Some of the vintage Alfa's etc are fine, but some of the Ferraris are just weird, the proportions look a little off and the interiors so lacking in detail, they look broken as new. No door cards etc. i like their 1/24's too. Still have tons of them lurking in cupboards.
  14. Bburago must be the biggest hit or miss model maker out there. I really like some of their models. They can do some really well done, nicely detailed, decent quality models, some of it produced around the same time is absolute half arsed undetailed junk with the thinnest, cheapest plastic castings you'll ever see.
  15. Could also be they are all broken at once. I used to work across from the depot here and they were mostly found sitting outside, looking broken with pieces missing, engine covers off etc. They certainly didn't give off the impression of a well built reliable money making vehicle for a company that needed them on the road significantly more than off it.
