    hairymel reacted to HMC in Buying a working, legal, partially presentable car for under a ton?   
    If it’s aimed at the general reader (ie not we that consider that quite normal if you look) the notion of a £200 usable car is quite something; doubling your budget will fill out the field and give you more chance of ticking more of your boxes.

    Would anyone be intrested in a thread about the trials and tribulations of a plumber/gasman on the open site?
    I've been plumbing for 30 years and working self employed for 16 of those.

    Be good to go on a transexual forum and then start a thread about Maestros. That would baffle them.

    Thanks for that
    I was a bit blinkered as all the ones I have came from the factory in Finland - our boss would drive up there and buy for the whole firm - 1,000 mile round trip but he did have other places to go on the way.

    £73, 7 hours and 2 trains. It sounds miserable.
     
    It'd be a hell of a ride home though.

    And it's finished. We made it! There'll be a mahoosive post in the next few weeks when I get home, but for now here's a taster photo from last night's camp:


     
    Now a test post...

    I have just completed the 2018 Mongol Rally and following a brief and poorly maintained preparation/introduction thread here I have written a full narrative of the event. Hopefully the rest of the 10,000 or so adverb-heavy words below will be more intriguing, amusing and maybe even arousing than that very dull opening sentence. That’s a word per mile that we drove so consider it value for money.

    Marked on this map are the locations of every of my overnight stays with the exception of that on the Caspian Sea ferry. It took exactly six weeks from departing England to arriving at Ulan-Ude in Siberia.
     
    I took my ‘big camera’ but after a fairly boring first week I only used it for about five photos, so the overwhelming majority of these are just from my phone as we quickly realised that situational photography best captured what we were doing. Other teams came armed with tripods and drones and have produced incredible photo blogs of their travels. We dicked around taking selfies, so a lot of my pictures break the golden rule of bulletin boards. Most of the photos here are mine with the Carphone Warehouse’s ch

    BMC Farinas had their window winder about as far down the driver's door nearest the footwell as possible.   Impossible to reach in static seat belts.   Most latter-day owners got round this by kicking all the glass out of the car and fitting a harness.

    hairymel reacted to Stanky in Forum Funding - Statement of account UPDATED 01/07/2019   
    Thanks for your patience folks, having spoken to Dave's family via Tayne they have expressed their huge gratitude to the forum for the kind words and generous donations in memory of Dave.
     
    A letter from the family is being prepared to express their thoughts, but in advance of this Dave's family have asked that the money raised be split three ways. Having seen Dave's enjoyment of AS through his posts, they would like £200 to go to the forum funds. The remaining £1287.72 be split two ways between Alzheimers Scotland and Macmillan. Both causes have affected the family in the past and the money will be put to good use.
     
    I will make the donations later this evening.
