  1. I especially like the Dymo-tape "mph" label on the obviously km/h speedometer
  2. Looks a good deal safer than the Mario Kart Experience you can do in Tokyo:
  3. Given the Nintendo stickers all over it, I suspect a reference to the ghost vacuuming machine in Luigi's Mansion:
  4. I'd be more worried about the stuff you can't see, underneath. There's going to be a reason for all those props...
  5. Even has the American Racing Vector rims, a la Dukes of Hazzard. Looks pretty fuckered to me though
  6. Says test until November? MOT history shows last tested May 2019, so it's on a Boris MOT. At least one of those tyres looks fooked to me, not trusting my life to cracked old rubber. That wheelarch is rotted through, that's not really "a small rust patch". MOT history shows it's been stood for much of its life, only 10k miles in the last 13 years. Some of the fail->pass looks like a pretty lenient testing station to me, might get a nasty shock if you took it to a strict one. Caveat emptor, as always.
  7. Yep, and that one's been in their showroom a year or more, dropped a grand in price in that time as well.
  8. Neither. SUVs whether full size, mini, or crossover, are all the spawn of the devil as far as I'm concerned.
  9. I'll take the Pontiac (Chieftain?) please. You can mail it to: Wish I had a drive big enough, Bet it gets more looks than any of the others, Jelly-town, UK
  10. Seriously? These fuckwits need to learn some chemistry; metallic lead isn't soluble in petrol, it has to be processed into tetraethyl lead before being added. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetraethyllead
  11. Seems to share some styling cues, maybe even parts (windscreen?) with the Beetle based Nova kit car. Wonder if the same people were involved? https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C134624
  12. I remember a mad bugger called Andy Saunders regularly having his modified cars featured in Street Machine in the 80s and 90s. This CX low loader stuck in my mind: Here's his take on a 2CV, nobody better show this to DollyWobbler, he might faint...
  13. DVLA don't always have that correct, as we know. Many a muppet has put a bigger motor in a car without notifying them, nvm that it invalidates their insurance etc. I like sleepers, but this one is positively comatose, if that's the intention. And yes, the door repair is a 3D sculpture! ?
