  1. Video of the Sierra starting and ticking over please!!
  2. Did I imagine these Prides having white wall tyres when new??
  3. I really enjoyed the tyre video, really informative too.
  4. I used to work for the Police and a great prank was carried out on one of my mates (not by me I might add) Someone drew a cock and balls on his stab vest with a UV security pen so the next time he arrested someone and stood with him under the black light (used to check prisoners for smart water) in the custody suite it appeared for all to see. Apparently the prisoner was crying with laughter 🤣
  5. I've had a Saxo VTR, I've driven a 9-3 auto (although it was a petrol saloon) but I'd never driven a Pinin. It smells rank (it's his dog car) and it's a bit baggy but it's great fun.
  6. The Ceed is having a couple of drop links replaced tomorrow so a friend offered to lend me something to get me to work. My choices were....... 1. Citroen Saxo VTR 2. SAAB 9-3 diesel auto floppy top 3. SWB Shogun Pinin So I chose.......
  7. Looking forward to watching this with a nice brew 😀
  8. I really need to do mine, it's just getting round to it
  9. Ceed is booked in next week for a front and a rear drop link. They were advisories on the MOT and the front one is beginning to knock a bit.
  10. I'll have a look to see if it's on YouTube
  11. Back in the early 2000s me and a couple of mates went camping to a cider pub alongside the River Ancholme near brigg. We decided to drink before putting the tent up.....bad idea so the 3 of us slept in my mates car. A fiat Panda (the 80s/90s shape) One in the drivers seat, one on the back seat and me in the passenger seat with my feet on top of his tool box. Lucky we were pissed and it was before I was 20st 😂 still not the best night's sleep I've had!
  12. I didn't know they had used modified Maestro vans to test the Freelander running gear. https://www.dunsfoldcollection.co.uk/collection/freelander/1994-freelander-test-mule-with-maestro-van-body
  13. Great to see a Vectra getting some love and attention 🙂
  14. My mate is taking his test soon and wanted to buy his first car (he's 38......left it pretty late) so we went to have a look at a 2009 Yaris 1.3. Looked a cracking little motor so he's paid a deposit. The dealer often has a few classics in so had to photograph these beauties.
  15. I noticed the front tyres were looking well worn, 3mm so got a pair of budgets fitted, laufenn S fit eq+ not a brand I'd heard of but owned by Hankook apparently.
  16. My 3 year old is called Lucas, I wouldn't trust him to design and build electrical components either!
  17. I think 205s are the prettiest small car of the 80s/90s

    Bus Shite

    @Inspector Morose thank you so much, that's absolutely brilliant, I knew someone on here would know the history! There was a volunteer explaining something about burnt out ballast resistors (I was trying to stop a nosey 3 year old disappearing to the top deck so missed a lot of what he was telling us)

    Bus Shite

    Took my son to Sandtoft trolleybus museum again yesterday they were open until 6pm so you could ride the trolleys in the dark to experience the flickering lights. The beige trolley had a diesel engine too, do any of you know more about its history (it would probably help if I'd taken better photos) The other but was battery electric and from what I gather is a modern copy of an electric bus from 1911.
  20. Cleaning really filthy car interiors is so satisfying!
  21. @grogee Too much CGI in this one and I'd rather have the 205!
