    I love the Yank's functional names for their cars. Almost as good as "Town Car". Using the same logic, do you have Hair de Top Lip?

    That face when two Safrane's appear for sale at once yet you only have the money for one roffle ticket.

    Trust me, you will be far from alone. I need this as much as toothache - I bought another car last Sunday.

    I just wanted to say a big thanks to those that offered collection and storage assistance, to Rob for being a true gent, to the new new owner for being a pleasure to deal with, and to Cavcraft and Jim Bell and Moog for gifting me tickets.
    The biggest surprise was that it was the one ticket I bought myself that won, having never won a roffle (or anything else really) before. I would have dearly loved to collect the car myself before keeping it or selling it on but common sense has to prevail every now and again I guess, so I'm remaining where I am and putting the (much needed and appreciated) money towards keeping my travels going on as long as possible.
    It's safe to say I'm the happiest of bunnies, and I promise that if I'm ever lucky enough to win another roffle I will absonitely defolutely collect the thing. Wherever in the world I am.

    I'll always upvote a good Laguna 1. Can't understand why so many dislike these.

    I for one do not enjoy the sensory overload from modern car dashboards. When I had an office job which was a pretty horrible, oppressive experience, I had a Nissan company car (well, a Nissan press fleet car, but it did amount to the same thing in practice) but most of the time I commuted in my own 800 Sterling. Because what did I want after a day of staring at screens and having notifications pop up at me? Certainly not more of the same on my drive home, and I certainly didn't want that polluting the little snippet of time I had to myself in the drive in. I'd take the Rover's walnut dash and T-Series burble any day - probably made me old fashioned, but isn't that why most of us are here?
    The place I wrote for very corporate and discouraged pretty much anything other than bland. On the eve of the day when I handed my notice in, I had to drive to Cromer to interview the CEO of a company that made curtain-side trailers. What I should have done was put my Fred and Florence suit on and drove across in the Nissan. Instead, as a big F.U to the Arsehole and Arsehole Media (and if I'm honest, the whole of society which I was feeling alienated and confused by) I took the Sterling and donned my blazer and chinos, and put on the most '90s tie that I owned, and departed from said CEO with a Gareth Cheeseman style handshake standing next to the Rover. It was worth taking the job just to be able to do that.
     
    Back on topic: Mrs_Partridge, who works in design thinks that these iPads on dashboards are partly driven by ease of repair and ease of updating. It's probably much easier to whip out one of the iPad, than it is to faff about trying to take apart a modern car dash, with it's six thousand airbags and miles of wiring, should a speedo pack up or something else has a spazz fit. It's a hard enough job to do in a Peugeot 405, let alone a 2018 A-Class. I imagine modern digi dashes are more accurate, too. Probably a good thing in a country that has god knows how many average speed cameras waiting for you when you drive into work...

    The Golf MK3 was one of the worst atrocities of the '90s. Needless to say, I like them. Do you have any pictures? I don't have any interest in buying a car, I'm just morbidly curious.

    Pug 106 et al don't have temp indication just a fault light which illuminates when you've melted the engine and all is and is up-g-fucked but for one a half of your British Pounds you can get one of these things below from China which run on 12v and stick the sensor some where suitable, can prog the board to operate the relay at a preset temp if you want to  -say - a fan to start.
