  1. When I was out in California ove the summer there was plenty of uber rare British cars out and about with British plates on that had been shipped over for the Pebble Beach concours event but I don't think they really count as being 'proper' wandering cars seeing as half of them would have been put on a plane and back in blighty before I was! As for foreign cars in the UK, there's a chancer one road over from the 'rents who has a Holden Monaro on Queensland plates and has done for a couple of years, I doubt he'll get challenged as Thames Valley Police never challenged the lad driving a Honda Civic on Arab plates that spent nearly ten years going around North Oxford.
  2. I can remember being a right old useless little shit on the internet back in the day but it certainly has got worse. Now I've grown up and I am selling models on ebay and elsewhere I find myself inundated with stupid messages clearly written by kids, the last one on ebay wanted me to hold the item for a month after he had won it on ebay so he could pay for it. Unsurprisingly he had plenty of negative feedback from sellers who he had never paid but luckily he never bid which saved me the grief. I think the essential problem is that the age of people using the internet is getting lower and lower with predictable consequences.
  3. Ah right, that is fair enough and a shame to lose a RHD one, I thought it had been the Russian car. I doubt May had much of an impact on the stunt at all.. Just a token bit of childish antics thrown in at the end.
  4. I really liked the show, it was pretty informative and funny... As for the Riva, it was a bit of a shame but its not like Russia is short of late model LHD Rivas.
  5. The owner of that espace must be a French Colin Furze...
  6. Unfortunately true on both accounts. The PSNI are relatively crap at community policing but after watching them dealing with the flag protests as well as the constant background bullshit from every shade of dissidents and big mouths over the last 18 months I've nothing but respect for what the average peeler out here. Speaking of NI, this weekend I finally leave the place... It's been an amazing experience and the people I've met have been absolutely smashing but I was made an offer I couldn't refuse so now I'll go home and never be referred to as 'that english one' ever again. p.s. I'm pretty sure I saw the SauceDoctor Rover in the city centre a while ago, that things spectacular and must be one of the best 25s left, keep up the good work!
  7. Probably worth adding that this'll be the reason for the grin... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-26984920 Seeing as he was one of the ones who lost the civil case over the bomb, his chances of being released aren't looking too good. The only shame will be when pig-shit thick idiots start calling for his release from 'internment'. Together with the recent arrests over the Jean McConville murder, its good to see the PSNI nicking some of the bastards who must have thought they'd got away with it by now.
  8. Oooh, those looks lovely. I just bagged a 1/32 kit of a Mazda Savanna GT the other day, it is winging its way over to me right now...
  9. I started browsing autoshite about 7-8 years ago... Back then we were lusting and the 70s motors and looking at the 80s cars as potential classics etc. Fast forward nearly a decade and we've essentially handed over the 70s cars to the 'classics crowd', the 80s cars are well established and are becoming 'classics' and the 90s cars are next on our radar. 90s motors are about a decade away from being truly regarded as being classics but the high profile cars such as the GTIs, Cosworths Vauxhall Lotus Carltons etc will start to attract a lot of interest in the next couple of years. Everything has its time and it is inevitable that us lot will be at the vanguard shepherding the shit cars into safety and onto classicdom, that is what Autoshite does best!
  10. From what I was told the air cooled engines were incredibly reliable and very easy to fix if something went wrong... The guy who told me that though did make it onto the front cover of a Maggie catalogue though (which I'd love to see again but is unlikely as I've lost contact with him). Seeing as so few have been preserved I presume they all ended up being exported.
  11. Iveco took over Magirus-Deutz back in the day and eventually rebadged them and put their engines in them... So I was told by a bloke who used to run a fleet of Magiruses back in the day, he switched to other manufacturers after his first experience of the Ivecos.
  12. The German firms pump out some right dodgy gear for the railways, highlights also include rocking caravans and people tied to beds...
  13. Tis because the link is to reply to the thread, not the thread itself Here it is http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=47&t=1390990&mid=271828&nmt=Pub+Purchased+Series+3+Landrover
  14. Shiters are to attend without automobiles, purchase a Hindustan Contessa, Ambassador Sipani Dolphin or Premier Padmini* and drive it back. Literally nothing could go wrong, at all.** *Other Indian continuation shite is availible.
  15. I was just browsing the interwebz and I stumbled on an Indian classic car forum thingy... http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintage-cars-classics-india/ They're lusting after Standard Heralds and Ambassadors, it makes for some interesting reading.
