  1. We are an embarrassment. I've just spent 3 weeks in Sydney - not a single dog egg on any street anywhere. I walked for miles in the 3 weeks there. Not immaculate by any means but hardly any litter scattered about the place either. Fuck, even the public/ shopping centre bogs were all pretty clean instead of literal shite thrown up walls and pish on every surface like this shit hole. I was back one day in Glasgow and I've already stepped on a turd right outside my brother in laws driveway in Craigton. Brilliant. I can't help you with local trades I'm afraid as my decent (although still absolutely hopeless at timekeeping) plumber has retired. I've got some contacts for leccy and plastering, but they aren't without fault either (again timekeeping mostly). Half the problem I think is that most are all swimming in work, so it doesn't matter to them if they treat customers like shit.
  2. Man, I'd tell the pair of them to sook a shite. Your sister sounds like a piece of work and your mum should really know better than to volunteer you for stuff. Knock that shit on the head. If your sister wants to act like a dangerous tit, then that's completely on her and not you.
  3. My view for the next few weeks. Some spots in the car park
  4. Am offski. 21 hours in two tin cans await...Joy!
  5. Well done that man, looks a beaut! Safe travels 🙂
  6. I'm guessing it's either then purple V8 monster or Green Viking Tug and @davehedgehog31 is at it!
  7. Absolute bargain! You'll struggle to even get a council lockup roundabout that price.
  8. Looooooong car….teeny tiny description!
  9. I’ve been using my dads Hyundai IX35 the past few days and it has a front wiper de-frost function. Well posh!
  10. I spent ages last weekend and now today footering with the rear brakes on the Cav. What was supposed to be just drums ended up being shoes, fitting kit and the handbrake cables as the shoes fell to bits. With new shoes on I couldn't get a handbrake(Cable had no adjustment left). Cylinders fine so I left them. Never done drum brakes before. Don't think I want to again. What a palava. I had to mess about something awful with them to get the auto adjusters to play ball. I must have had them off about 4 times each side (including taking them off again to do the handbrake cables). Discs, pads and calipers for me please!
  11. Bloody cars! Sounds like you had a frustrating Saturday like me.
  12. Mate, please don't do anything you might regret. Please don't cut out any medication you are on. Please speak to your GP before you do anything in haste. I'm no expert AT ALL, but there is never a bad time to make changes for the sake of your health. I don't think it's ever going to be easy to swap a "bad diet" for a "healthy" one. Your body will be craving it's dopamine kick from the sugary carbs. You've already taken some positive steps to improving your health if you've been cutting out a lot of the stodge 👍. Do you try and vary what you put on your plate? Shaking up what you put on your plate (even just a little colour) and stepping away from "beige" foods will help. You'll quickly get fed up if you just eat the same 2 or 3 meals on repeat.
  13. I think for my budget it'll be a slightly dog-eared RX-8 😆.
  14. I must try harder to experience more cars. Sell the Blue Mx-5 (it will be MOTd and sold in spring) Sell the Cav (it's going up for sale in a few weeks once I've finished the rear brakes) Then get at least two from below that I haven't owned: Straight 6 V6 Wankel Boxer V12 Accepted wildcard will be another V8 (already had one but I would like another because burble)
  15. Fake listing I think. For sale on FB in Paisley, with a couple more photos at £2300
  16. These were in the box with my old Scalextric set. I don't even remember buying them but I must have . 🤣.
  17. Wasn't a fan of the pre-facelift but I really do think the facelift Vectra C is a smart looking thing. I know it was probably done to give it the same face as the Astra H, but I like it.
  18. I was slightly perplexed by the age restriction warning on the box but what a nice surprise, thank you very much Secret Santa! I shall enjoy skelpin' this at Hogmanay:
  19. I was in a funeral car this afternoon, directly behind the hearse. We were in the outside lane going through town (as the inside lane was blocked ahead with parked cars) and this absolute boot in a white "m-sport" 5 series came flying up the inside and tried to force herself in between our car and the hearse, causing our driver to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting her. If there is such a thing as karma I hope she gets her comeuppance the disrespectful CUNT.
  20. My neighbour has recently starting parking their other motor outside my house. I couldn't give two shits as it's a free country but they keep bumping their car up onto the kerb. A lot of occasions they misjudge it and gobble up most of the width of the pavement which means I have to side step shuffle past their car each time I want to walk up my own front steps/path. There is plenty of space to the side of my steps (and plenty of parking roundabout without having to resort to bumping up on pavements). It's a trivial matter and maybe I shouldn't complain too much but ffs engage your brain a bit. I might just borrow my mates tiny trailer and park it on the road right outside my steps and leave it for a month just to be a passive aggressive tosser.
  21. When I was 15 I couldn't walk to school without hearing some wee bam in his Nova, Astra or Cavalier with a cherry bomb fly past. I shouldn't have, but I always liked the sound. My turn: I've still got a mid silencer in place and another small mid box (from the Mx-5) directly behind the Kraken exhaust to keep the noise levels sensible. Wee bit more footering required, but at least the exhaust isn't rattling on the boot floor unlike before. I've still got a full standard exhaust in the rafters, so can put back to normal if it does my head in.
  22. It's a keeper.... although I keep saying that about the blue 😂. It's a classic red 1.8 NA base. No frills whatsoever. It's my perfect spec!
