  1. Industrial accident at the red dye factory: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toyota-hiace-super-custom/133043036593?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Dadeab871efbe436ca747ef49e7213954%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D332694583174%26itm%3D133043036593&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A9be31775-7f90-11e9-93d3-74dbd1807f62|parentrq%3Af343cc3c16a0a99c668891adfff574fc|iid%3A1
  2. PN17 HNT on a Greene King lorry yesterday - to me it said PINT.
  3. Straight outta Marrakesh https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1983-Mercedes-Benz-280E-300D-Engine-W123-OM617-Green-Olive-Velour-Interior/333197444475?hash=item4d941d857b:g:YnsAAOSwEfVcEP6L
  4. Can't seem to find the original post but it's not just scene kidz this affects. A team in last year's Mongol Rally managed to get all the way to Siberia... and back! before the Salzburg Polizei stopped them for driving a car with no windscreen and held together with sticky tape etc. They launched a media campaign and some noble Frenchman came to trailer them home. Far cooler car though: This link might work to FB
  5. Just because your car has an MOT doesn't mean it's legal. If a problem emerges after the test then a driver can still have his vehicle impounded for being unsafe - headlights not working is a fairly easy example to enforce because it's readily observable. At the end of the day, these vehicles most likely had 'dodgy MOTs' - I once accidentally did one with a motorbike taking it to a 'garage' that a friend recommended. He wheeled it into a side room, read the paper for twenty minutes then gave me a certificate. More realistically though I think these are actually the German fashion police as at the end of the day the modification all look very very stupid.

  7. There's a specific ebay section just for Rovers?
  8. Interesting use of a disabled bay(s)
  9. Ok Erm https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rare-86-honda-civic-b18-forged-turbo-200-mph-modified-retro-weapon-type-R-vtec/264312152286?hash=item3d8a3b60de:g:WsUAAOSwDKBc0ETp
  10. Not many photos of it yet but there is a new Brexit bus, which I think is the Leave Means Leave bus with a new lick of paint. The original was widely lambasted for being made in Germany and Poland - the new one is a B7TL. Weren't the first of these made in Irvine before it shut then the remainder made in Sweden? Looks a lot the like NX Coventry livery to me!
  11. Wow, I didn't know Ian was an 'influencer'! I remember almost ten years ago on the BX Forum or maybe here when you were discussing trying to break into indy-journalism, looks like it's worked out. Top job. In more boring news I think Reading have de-hybridised some of their Dennis doublet deckers as they've removed all the fancy green branding and they sound very different. In the BAE system I think it's a fairly simple job, as their hybridrive was packaged as a gearbox anyway, so kept the angle drive to the axle etc.
