  1. Got mine this am from WHS in Yeovil. They still have 3x copies left so not sure if they've sold any. Felt sorry for the assistant in there as they did not have any air-con. I was only in there 2 minutes and was sweating like a pig. Must be hell to be in there all day.
  2. Mother is in her 70's and has arthritis. Even with the suspension low she struggles to get in and out. Strangely she seems to be o.k with her Freelander -not recommending any LR product as we all know they are the most 'needy' vehicle you can get!
  3. Nice car. Quite fancy one of these next. What's the collectives view with Seville marmalade on crumpets?
  4. I generally don't get attached to motors. They are just a money pit disguised as a lump of metal. I try to average £600 per year ( purchase and parts) which in my mind is 3 months payment on the BMW/Audi you'll never own. If the mot failure is consumables tyres, brakes etc it'll get done otherwise here comes the bridge! This system seems to have worked for me for the last 8 or so years. If it was mine I'd get shot of it.
  5. Isn't he the man on the Clapham omnibus?! ( I'm sure this is what the ordinary man is described as in law-could be making this up though!)
  6. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/94-VAUXHALL-ASTRA-ESTATE-1-6-GLSi-MOT-27-6-19-LOAD-OF-HISTORY-RETRO-CLASSIC-RARE/153335427558?hash=item23b380f1e6:g:rNgAAOSwgadcN45Q Apparently this is in good condition. Owned by husband and wife, neither of whom cared for the car!
  7. Is it me or does this side view look like a RR Silver Shadow? https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/51014215_10218268012956978_1538240862025154560_n.jpg?_nc_cat=110&_nc_ht=scontent-lhr3-1.xx&oh=0648ea35dcb9761e24a1a7205a2b6522&oe=5CB93447#

    60MPH

    The P38 likes to sit between 55 and 60. Usuall get about 24.4 mpgs. So not efficient, it's a P38 and it has a big boot. 33% success rate isn't too bad!
  9. Were the photos taken at Beer head carpark? I grew up in Seaton and the parents still live there. I'm not surprised you spent along time there shooting for the town guide as it must have been a struggle to find stuff -there is fxxk all there (Tram,beach Jurassic centre, jubilee gardens- can't think of anything else)!
  10. How about a Picarsole bought off of Arsebook and still full of maccy d's kids meal boxes?
  11. The current millstone has one. In the 3 years she's had it not washed or hoovered once. Then she moaned at me for getting the interior dirty when I took some garden waste to the tip!
  12. I play this game aswell. My 2001 Range Rover is usually the oldest car we see and we potter around farming country in Devon and Somerset. These used to be prime chod spotting areas.
  13. Jag XJ series 3 or an XJ40. They were everywhere and you could pick them up for less than a bag. Decent ones are on the shelf next to the rocking horse poo!
  14. Sorry for the lateness of the message but seasonal greetings to you all!
  15. Big executive cars with tax efficient engines always seemed poor to me. The 1.8 Grandadas and Carltons always seemed to have aspirations above their station.
