  1. I was once told to look at gardens, houses, other cars in the background of autotrader ads in order to gauge an the owner's fastidiousness. Someone with a bush that neatly trimmed probably cleans his vents with a toothbrush.
  2. Peter Kay got away with that with his dvds for years. The same show as last year's, but in a different theatre, released a month before Christmas.
  3. Just returned home from a works trip to North Wales, with 3 colleagues in a rented Ford S-Max. A top of the range thing with a diesel engine and automatic gearbox - the Ford version of the VW DSG box. And you'll never guess what happened... It lost loads of power going up a hill in the middle of nowhere in North Wales, the gearbox started hunting around but we crept over the brow, and somehow managed to coax it another 100 miles home. Maybe turning it off and on again would have sorted it, but maybe it wouldn't, and I didn't fancy risking it with three colleagues in the middle of nowhere. Anyway, the point is this: IT'S NOT MY PROBLEM 😁
  4. About 30 years ago boy I knew resprayed his shitty brown Cavalier a slightly different shade of shitty brown. It looked like he did it with crayon. He's working as a sprayer at the new Aston Martin factory in St. Athan now. Avoid buying a brown one and you'll be alright
  5. Stick it in a water pistol and it'll save you the bother of buying a mig welder too
  6. Ah, my dad had a chip van and bought me an Austin Metro. We're virtually the same ish
  7. I've been watching some of this fella. Somehow he's managed to get himself a massive house full of luxury cars just by appearing on YouTube. Ian Hubnut is either missing a trick or has a very comfortable bank balance....
  8. She didn't climb in through the windows, unfortunately
  9. Spotted this beauty around the back of an industrial unit in Troyes, France, last week.
  10. My last night in France, trying to negotiate my way into a tiny parking spot in a minute car park. Reversed in, literally 6 feet away from another hotel guest who didn't see fit to warn me of the hidden post behind me, as that would have required him to remove the joint from his scrawny gob.
  11. I'd love a moped like that, but my "significant other" says I'm not allowed. I've no hankering for any sort of bigger bike - they're just excuses for perverts to dress in leather baby grows - but I could make real use of one of those. Particularly if it's orange
  12. My brother bought one of those new when he worked for Ford, when they used to do proper staff discounts, although his is a 1.25 petrol engined one (designed by yamaha, he reckons). Despite having a load of other things in the meantime he's always kept hold of it as it's got a towbar (along with a number of freebie 'extras' it gained from the dealer's back yard along the way - he never paid for a tyre the whole time he worked there apparently). The only trouble it ever gave was with coil packs - he carries a spare with him as they can give up without notice. A colleague of mine had a similar one which she sold to a "we buy any car" place in Swansea for £175, as it had 175k on the clock. Nothing much wrong with it, but she got bored and bought a lightly used Corsa from a colleague instead, which almost immediately needed a ton of work. A bit of an atmosphere in the office that day...
