  1. I'm sure it will have taken him a while to recover. I was probably down playing it a bit when I said she said there was 'nothing wrong with him' (they were the words I remember her using mind you but it was probably relative to the people she normally dealt with) as he still had been in a pretty big crash and irrespective of whether there was anything seriously wrong there will still have been some injuries from such a big bang. She was adamant though that all the stuff we were reading in the press was absolute bollocks though and was quite annoyed with it all TBH.
  2. Meh, its like getting a dent in the washing machine 'innit. Just white goods the Mazda. But red.
  3. I noticed that the handbrake was on in the Visa today, Imp Jr must've pulled it up at some point. I let it off and the car was stuck solid as has been sat for over a year. Oh well. I wandered off to do something else and came back to find it had rolled backwards about 3ftinto the bins behind it, so obviously wasn't as stuck as I thought. You can see the brick that was supposedly chocking the rear wheel on the floor under the car..... In the plus side, we've found that missing shoe. Glad the bins were there, otherwise it'd have rolled into the Nissan. We then went and saw the Flying Scotsman when it came through Shipley. And someone drove into the back of the Mazda on the way home. Said we'd see if its a cheap repair locally but suspect it'll be going through insurance that. Fun fun fun.
  4. Spotted this yesterday. When we were getting back in the car after looking at it, we saw these were in a unit nearby.
  5. Yeah, it won't necessarily show up so thats why they just kept him under observation to ensure he didn't show any signs of anything. They then transferred him to somewhere else a few days later once the period where symptoms of something serous would be expected to have shown themselves had passed. Where did you get 6 months in hospital from? I did google it and couldn't find anything but saw that in 2022 he's now saying he was in a coma for 2 weeks. 🤣 There are articles showing him walking about just a few days afterwards. Maybe it did damage to his brain after all. 😂
  6. I'd be wary of reading too much into this though. When Richard Hammond had his crash years ago, my housemate Laura was one of his nurses on the ICU at the hospital he was flown to in Leeds. The only reason he was in there was due to the nature of the crash and in case there were any unseen injuries that needed urgent medical attention in the next 48 hours. As it was, there wasn't and she said there was absolutely nothing wrong with him and there was a load of fuss over nothing, so all the hype and stories were just basically free advertising for the show. This could be the same. It might not be, could all be genuine but after the Hammond crash years ago I'm slightly sceptical.
  7. When I had my red one, my dad got in it and couldn't get back out because of the position of the seats and how low it was. He'd have only been 3 years older than I am now too. 🤣
  8. £3k. Its fine, I wasn't in a headspace to fix it at the time and got what I wanted for it. I might be wrong but I suspect he's painted it in whatever colour he had lying around to hide all the grot. However, I'm not sure on prices, it might be good money now? Hopefully it'll sell and get done properly. I can then buy it back when I've won the lottery. 🤣
  9. I don't think the grot at the top of the windscreen has been done Which means the a pillar is likely wobbed as if you had the windscreen out you'd do both wouldn't you. I remember looking at that hole at the back in the floor and thinking 'Not sure where to even start with that' which was pretty much where I gave up with it. Its got me quite giddy seeing this though. Thanks for spotting it.
  10. I like the fact it 'appears to be brush painted'. It wasn't brush painted when I sold it to ya. 🤣 It was a George in York that I sold it to, so assume its the same guy.
  11. Its not available now. Not sure if its sold or just been withdrawn.
  12. Is every racist thinking its okay to publicly be racist these days? I was down the pub tonight having a couple of pints and chatting to a couple of blokes at the bar and within 5 minutes they're complaining about Muslims and Pakis. I called them out on it and they genuinely looked surprised. I'm sure it never used to be like that. Like my mate said, they probably thought I was a fucking massive racist being white, bald, overweight and dressed like a chav. However I'm a gammon in disguise. Ch-ch-ch-cha-cha-cha-cha But 10 yrs ago I could talk to people in the pub without them banging on about how much of a cunt they are. Even if they were racist they knew it was unacceptable to be a racist so kept quiet. But now its full on all 'muslims are scroungers' right to your face. Its fucking Facebook echo chambers etc making people think they have a legitimate point of view isn't it. Its probably because 90% of normal people don't post their shit on Facebook 'news' articles so the balance ofvl the cunts that do makes it look like every cunt is racist and they think its okay.
  13. On the BBC news website this morning I was left perplexed by this headline for a bit: There's a Chinese Doctor Who? I then tried reading the rest of the headline and it made no sense to me. John Barrowman isn't Chinese either, so it can't be him getting his todger out again. So 'Dr Who' exposed what, whats a 'crisis dies'? Are the words missing........oh hang on. Its a normal doctor that exposed the Sars virus.
  14. Could adjust the spacing and sell that as a personalised plate to someone who's a fan of blow jobs, Citroën BXs & KP nuts . Actually, that describes me. How much do you want for it?
  15. Yeah, I'm not trying to drive anywhere today. Gonna go sledging though. This was yesterday afternoon, will be loads more today. The field we normally slege in has been sold recently. The new owner came up telling us to leave as we were 'worrying his sheep' (there were no sheep). I started arguing with him and was making a few good well thought out points, as to why he should fuck off and leave us to it, when I suddenly slipped and fell about 6ft down the hill. Smooooth.

Just over 30, I actually thought it was more than that. Maybe missed a few but not many more. *Years are approximate.
  17. Thats a mental amount of work to then just smash up in a few minutes isn't it? If it makes him happy, thats good but I'd just buy a Mondeo. Impressive stuff though.
  18. What I found interesting about that is its a RHD car but in order to make it look like LE FRONCH MOTER CAIR they've lobbed some back to front plates on it.
  19. Neither did I. It looks like it depends on the car though.
  20. Someone on the Facebook thread has pointed out the advisories on the 2018 MOT. Gotta make sure those pedal rubbers are in good nick.
  21. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/596312139012813/ First car I drove on the road after passing my test was a red GTS-x Chamade. Also the first car I crashed, first car I fled from the scene of an accident in, first car I did over 100 in, first car I shagged a bird in, first car I got pulled over in. All in all, was a very eventful first day driving.
