  1. Spotted this today. Had a full set if Uniroyal Rainsports all round and give an overall impression of being reasonably well cared for.
  2. Always had a soft spot for the wacky Lagonda, but that DB7 is very interesting.
  3. Turns out my local convenience store is a great place to get some - My verdict? Stimulating and surprisingly palatable. The possible advertising slogans write themselves...
  4. Whenever I replace my Jazz, I'm seriously considering getting a white car. My Jazz is silver, so pretty good at reflecting the heat though.
  5. No idea how long this has been here, but obviously quite some time. Didn't do much for me, but might give some the
  6. Spotted these two in Devon (Postbridge to be precise). I Googled how to decipher German numberplates and wonder if they might be examples of German vanity plates, which are apparently available for a small fee. Seems a coincidence that the 350SL has the same number on the plate and the silver one has 560. However, if the silver car is a 560SL then it's an import as the 560 was apparently only sold in the USA, Canada, Japan and Australia.
  7. My mate sent me this. Looks alright for a grand, apart from the paintwork. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202206217018946
  8. Forward visibility on that looks... interesting.
  9. I'm sure it's been said here before, but there's more than a few chancers about who seem to think that rarity equals desirability.
  10. My mate just sent me this. We're both wishing we had the space for it. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/310802240966564/?ref=facebook_story_share
  11. I presume they always ask 'You want flies with that?' but you get them anyway regardless!
  12. It's not every day you encounter the phrase 'faeces-eating cult' 😲 https://www.thaienquirer.com/39988/leader-of-feces-eating-cult-arrested-after-11-dead-bodies-discovered-during-raid/
  13. FTFY, because it's a Maserati.
  14. There are few things more irritating than having a leaky car.
  15. That's spectacularly rare. I can't recall ever seeing one on the road.
  16. My 2012 Jazz 1.4ES has averaged 46.5 MPG since I bought it nearly five years ago. The best I've ever seen from a tankful is 51. I've run it mostly on Shell VPower, but switched to Tesco 99 more recently, with the odd tank of E10 here and there. Wife's 2017 Picanto 1.2 auto averages about 37 MPG, which increases to around 40-42 on a long run.
  17. In my office, we were told about three weeks ago that customers must sign for items, so the postie at the other end should be getting a proper signature unless the customer refuses due to covid. If they refuse to sign for an item, but still accept it, we're supposed to put 'MAR' on the screen for Marked As Received.
  18. A couple I spotted on delivery recently. Rotary enthusiast and a crusty work in progress.
  19. I recognise that house. Thatcham by any chance?
  20. This is lovely. Really liking the green body/white roof/grey bumper look.
  21. I saw someone recently who was using a Focus CC to deliver parcels for Yodel. Possibly the least appropriate parcel delivery vehicle you can think of.
  22. Given the experience I had with my old 52 reg Focus, it's headlamp bulbs too.
  23. My local IKEA yesterday. When I sent this picture to my wife she said 'go for the biggest one'.
