    Jasmine's VAGSHITE hat gestern abend der turboanlager noch einmal gescheisst. Sehr viel nebel von der auspuffer heute morgen. Noch einmal nach der Volkswagendealerwerkstatte um reparieren zu warden. Mit ein grossen twattenstick, hofflich.
     
    And when she gets the car back, it's getting chopped in for a Hyundai. Good warranty, and a dealer 2 miles away. In the meantime, she's driving the 14 year old Fiat Punto I got at the auction for 300 bills.
     
    There's a lesson in there somewhere, I'm sure.

    On I player there is madness in the desert about the Paris Dakar and full throttle about British bikes, both a good watch both on bbc4 last night. I think there repeats but worth a watch.

    Suggestion Friday is cancelled this week, as it was last week, due to workload.  But here's the one that was due last from last time and it was a very, very difficult decision to make given the high quality of suggestions offered.
     
     
    Alvis Stalwart - SOLD
     

     
    Tried a slightly different inking style, something a bit looser and more comic book.  WOOP WOOP WOOP, that's the sound the Stalwart police riot amphithingy makes.

    I'd have left it the usual way up and saved the £100 personally.
     
    Did you get the street inversion thrown in for the same price?

    Today is my Acclaims 30th birthday so I've treated it to a good polish and clean, It looks pretty tidy now considering, it's now got a new second hand set of tyres fitted too so it should all be ready for Shitefest next month.

    The Martin Kemp debacle was destroyed at a VW bash at Santa Pod - Big Bang
    It was bought specifically to be destroyed to raise money for charity.
     
    A bit of an aside, there were a number of complete VW fucktards there, who tipped it onto its roof before the fluids had been drained
    and before the crowds had gathered and before it was in the Monster Truck arena.
    I understand that when they were grassed up, located and questioned about it later on during the weekend,
    They donated much, much more money than they had been planning or expecting to give.

    Had a day out a the seaside (Southport) yesterday with the tribe. First long run in the camper since we bought it just after Christmas. It's slow, I'm not used to getting constantly overtaken! Never missed a beat though to be fair and the kids loved it. No pineapples involved I promise.

    morris_ital_lover reacted to dollywobbler in Dollywobbler's Daihatsu - MOT of fail   
    Scary isn't it? I have vowed never to drive it long distance ever again, due to the incredible lack of suspension (made all the worse when you also own two Citroens) but it's just such a hoot to drive around here. The MOT (July) is the car's next big challenge. Sills need plenty of work.
     
    Even scarier is that Mrs Wobbler is quite happy to drive all three cars on the fleet. This is pretty much unprecedented.

    The future of the Nazi Staff Car is still uncertain...I'm fed up with the Fraud Fester Courtsey car, so when I saw this for £200, up for sale on a noticeboard in the chippy it would be rude not to. Comes with towels on the back seats as a bonus! Pennies to insure thanks to being dizzer I really wanted Breadvan's but was skinto at the time, so I'm dead pleased with this.



    It's what Mike Brewer would call a "good honest motor", or as I would put it "very dirty".


    I dare say it's rust free. (taps wooden table)
    Needs tidying up here and there, and it looks like it's not seen a rattle can since the new millenium. This looks cack and will replaced.

     
    It does need though:
     
    New steering bushes (as adviced by the seller, and it does feel a touch woolly)
    New backbox (this one is slightly blowey)
    The starter motor and glow plugs are knackered.
     
    I'll get that sorted and be ONTO A WINNAH.
