    That's not a Nazi plane... it's a Slepcev Storch, a modern Serbian 3/4 scale ultralight recreation of the WWII-era German Fieseler Fi-156 Storch.
     
    Here's a full pic of it:

    John F got a reaction from LightBulbFun in Cars with the model number in the registration plate   
    I saw an Audi of some sort earlier on with the number S55 SSS.
     
    Perhaps it had a slow puncture?

    I like to think there's an Audi or BMW out there with BE11 END as its number.

    It's got a bit of Sunbeam Alpine to it, but the front end and the rear side bits where the windows should be are wrong.
     
    Did someone do a kit version?

    ^ I did a similar route to that last summer, visiting the D-Day invasion beaches. And drinking unwise quantities of cidre and Calvados.
     
    Recommended, especially the area around Sainte-Mère-Église / Utah beach which is a national park.

    I've only ever used rear fog lights when visibility was so bad there was a real risk of someone driving into the back of me.
     
    I've never used front "fog lights" because they're virtually useless in fog or heavy snow, and only dazzle or antagonise other drivers when they're inevitably left on.
     
    As for people that keep their front fog lights on all the time deliberately, I was once dazzled so badly on a country road bend by an inconsiderate cunt with their fogs on that I hit a rock at the side of the road & wrote off my Mk 1 Astra 1200 S.
     
    Luckily nobody in my car was injured, but things could easily have been much worse, all because some WANKER wanted to "look good" (hint: you actually just look like wankers).

    Citroen Xsara Picasso - goppingly awful bloated bastard carrier, driven by grunting mongs and their enormous scowling wives to transport their revolting sticky children from one McDonald's to the next. Or a baked potato-shaped MPV for the masses, if you're being charitable.

    I can't help thinking that "Cresta van Licking" would be a great name for a Dutch lesbian porn star...

    What sort of action is going to be taken to sort out the problems which resulted in the moderating confusion and lack of logic over compromised member accounts?
     
    After all, that's the reason all this is happening isn't it?

    I don’t see how this is contributing to the debate, nor do I feel assured the spirit of the thread and the dialogue between mods and members is being held by all mods if one of them “ likes” this post.

    My grump is that Louise2cv has just asked to have her Autoshite account deleted, after being a member here for 10 years.
     
    See page 45 of the Autoshite moderator election thread for her "resignation letter" if you're interested in why she left.
