  1. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224635758975 Says he only sold 2 and says it was pulled for "other reasons". I wonder if copyright was an issue. Might be worth contacting the seller. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003463554668.html https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003468896947.html These appear to be the same ones.
  2. Well how about this then? Cheap chinese tat which cost me around £8.66. It has several advantages over the rather expensive Minichamp one. It's got orange repeaters and the doorhandles are painted. But most importantly, it's right hand drive!
  3. Just put it in the advert. Then you can take the piss out of them.
  4. Can you not just use some fake details? Most profiles on there don’t appear to be people’s real names.
  5. Worth it for the 2JZ engine alone
  6. Ok, I have news for you 😆 firstly, Honda are no longer in F1. They pulled out a couple of years back, but were contracted to supply to Red Bull. That’s come to an end. secondly, the US has realised that F1 is the future. The Austin GP could now sell out several times over, so they’re having a race in Miami this year and possibly adding New York next year. Plus the Canadian and Mexican GPs are popular too - we met a lot of Americans in Montreal.
  7. What's wrong with Bognor? We're looking at a house in Pagham.
  8. Oof. And in polished turd too. Does the bonnet actually shut?
  9. I have a friend who does this. Actually, she's a manager now, but still very much hands on. Sounds like a really interesting job. Certainly much more interesting than being a 9-5 office drone.
  10. There are quite a lot of MR02 Roadsters out there. And TRD based stuff.
  11. Fat spaniel 😁 It wasn't expensive, because it's got starship miles.
  12. One of the guys in the MR2 Roadsters group has WH05TWO I think it's a great plate.
  13. sorry, took no pictures today, but had an awesome day out (as always) at Sunday Scramble, Bicester Heritage. Never fails to amaze me how many new units open every time we go. The car decided to play up, however. Either a faulty (or dirty) ICV or a vacuum leak. Keeps revving under idle.
  14. I love me a 300ZX, but that's just plain horrid. Horrid bumper, horrid spoiler, wheels are shite. I'm also very wary of people who lie. Says 80k unmodified. That's clearly modified and the last MOT has it down as 121k. I think they think they can get £10k for that. The fact that it doesn't mention it says that it's probably a NA import which isn't the one everyone wants anyway.
  15. A quick look at the MOT due in the next 6 weeks suggests it might need new rear tyres, a new exhaust and possibly a ball joint. If you have the facilities to fix them yourself, could well be an excellent runabout.
  16. I had a Prius company car. I hated it. Every time I looked at it, it filled me with anger. BUT, for all its faults (the exterior and the interior), it actually drove quite well and had a fair bit of poke. It also did great MPG. Not to mention it was actually more practical than the Vectra it replaced.
  17. Honda Jazz. Invariably driven by old arthritic old codgers that really shouldn't be on the road. I was with a mate last year, following one driving at 30mph down some A road that didn't have any bits quite straight enough to overtake. I joked "I bet she's off to church or something" and literally a minute later, she pulled into the church hall fete. Weirdly, I have a mate who has a particularly hot Honda Euro Type R with all the mods. His daily is a baSE Jazz. I cannot even start to understand how this happened. I regularly rip the piss for this.
  18. OK, let me hit you up with FREE stuff! First one, as someone mentioned above..... Azure exams. Doesn't matter what you do, cloud is God. Developer, support tech, even service desk. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/events/training-days/ Azure Fundamentals. Not only do you get the 2 days training course, they let you sit the exam for FREE! IT Security (SOC) - it's the big in-thing now. I joke not, we can't hold onto our SOC (security operations centre) employees. It's relatively hard to get into, although you might be able to get onto an apprenticeship (open to all btw - some of my apprentices were in their 30s when I was hiring them) You could do a lot worse than doing this course (it's free- simply write to them, explain you're out of work and want to get in the business and they'll send you a free login - promise!) https://www.antisyphontraining.com/pay-what-you-can/ Do all 3 of John's courses. They're all 5-9 at night or 6-10 in the summer. I did mine whilst working full-time. Open University do free IT Courses too https://www.open.edu/openlearn/free-courses Thing with all the above is that you don't necessarily need to take exams. But they all look good on your CV. As does volunteering. If you can't get a job in IT, have a look at IT volunteering opportunities - a local charity might want help. Put an offer out on NextDoor or your local Facebook group to help Silver Surfers.
  19. ,Well, 2 weeks after expiring, my Missus car still hasn't been booked in for an MOT. Definitely under 100 miles. Still not going to beat 2017 and 2020. 3 miles both times.
  20. In the UK, your car will always have its own registration plate and I've never heard of it being given to another. So when you want your private plate back, you write to DVLA who then tell you to use the old one. So wise friends, if you ever buy a private plate, don't throw away the old one. Put it back on when you sell the car 😃 What gets me is that if they get pulled by the Police, the DVLA could literally scrap it, particularly if they've got previous (which you know they almost certainly have).
