  1. This makes me very happy. Keep that mighty red bugger working. It's replacement has recently let me down big time, on the other hand!

    Bus Shite

    Not much margin for error, driver!
  3. Yeah... I was too busy pissing about with the controls and went wrong somewhere... thank god for sat-nag!
  4. Home! Just under 250 miles non-stop and no issues. The old girl still has some go in her. Thanks to @sporty-shite for a smooth transaction. I intend to have some fun with this thing
  5. Well it’s buses now. As a PSV driver of 15 years so far, I f’ing hate getting on buses on a rest day. But such is my commitment to the ‘shite... not much further!
  6. Manchester, home of the Beatles and Stan Boardman. Come on you reds!!! no time for a curry though, I’m (only just) catching the last train for today. Phew, that connection was close!
  7. I like your thinking, @barefoot. That is a vehicle that would actually justify such a ridiculous journey. If you have a line on such a beast let us know! it turns out London to Manchester is a fucking long way, so I’m letting the train take the strain again. I shouldn’t complain though - the guy on the other side of the aisle is heading to Aberdeen to pick up a Rover 45, and the guard has to spend all tomorrow going to Dawlish to collect the Kia Picanto he ‘won’ for £160 on eBay...
  8. The journey began in Ipswich, home of the tractor boys dontcha know. Now in london’s Famous London, home of extinction rebellion and stinky toilets. As I can think of no other reason to be using public transport this early on a Saturday, presumably a lot of £300 Micras and the like are getting collected today!
  9. Well it’s WTF o’clock on a day off, it must be an autoshite collection. Off to the ends of the earth for a car which, if I looked longer/harder, I could probably find within 10 miles of my house. But where’s the romance in that! so, train number 1, with some other sleepy-eyed types who presumably are off to collect a 13 year old mondeo or something....
  10. OMG mind blown! I’ve dismissed so many cars while wondering to myself where all these auto boxes came from!!!!
  11. Yes, the guy I bought it off said he'd had the original number plate off and got the dvla to dig out a new one because the first one spelled out his and his mrs' names. Awwww bless!
  12. You're right BinHoker, so very right. I'm calling this one NOW! Wednesday night draw is go.

  13. Going to give the last non-payer a little bit longer, but I am feeling confident of a Wednesday draw
  14. Ooops sorry BH, that one slipped past me. Dozeydustman did pay, so if you're taking his ticket you'll pay him.

  16. Just so you don't think I've taken your moneys and run - a little update. We have one yet to pay, and one who wants to drop out. Sorry chaps and chap-esses.
  17. Sorry for the late response - just got home. Still three to pay, I'm afraid. I'll have to do some nudging...
  18. The town famous for Nik Kershaw and ... erm ... well Nik Kershaw, anyway —- Ipswich!
  19. I’m impressed with the speed of response from you guys. Even in my short time on this forum, the ‘paying up’ stage of other roff’s seemed to take a lot longer. Only three correspondents not heard from! Tomorrow evening a real possibility!
  20. I make it 6 still to pay, with one already warning me it will wait until he is back in the UK. I have a 12 hour drive back to the uk myself tomorrow so chances to check progress will be limited, but I’ll do my best to let you know if tomorrow’s draw is go. I’m excited. Can’t wait to the look of joy* on the winners face when they collect this fine steed!
