    Went to the jewel* of the north Cleethorpes. Spent best part of an hour looking for a parking space same as eleventy million people. Too late, here comes the vulcan.
    Everyone just got out of their cars, and for five minutes just watched awestruck. It was a shared group experience. Then we all got back in our cars and started being cnuts to each other again.

    That Ovlov's well lush at that price and condition, that mileage wouldn't put me off.
    156 has the super grippy velour seats, ribbed for extra comfort. Way better than the slidey leather ones that everyone wants.

    Well you've seen the flats I live in...
    All the same I don't know why the neighbours have to step outside their flat into the car park to shout and scream at each other.
    I can only conclude they are actively seeking to live up to the stereotype.

    My theory is that the motor industry was f*cked once the people who built their companies up from nothing - William Morris, William Lyons, Herbert Austin etc - started handing their companies over to others. Leonard Lord ended up running Austin, but he'd fallen out with Morris, so when the two were merged, he spent most of his time shitting all over Morris and its brands. The endless mergers failed to create a Ford rival, because all the separate companies had their own identities and factories. And a right mish-mash of unions. Confused, weak, pointless management allowed a union monster to grow and on top of that, Issigonis was given free rein to create hopeless designs. The Maxi was the final straw and he was finally retired.
    So as has been said, lots of people were to blame. (and I think Robbo was a twat).

    This is always an interesting debate. Unfortunately if unions are to blame for the collapse of the motor industry in the UK, then weak and gullible management are to blame for letting them go out of control. Then the government is to blame for forcing factories in places like Linwood onto manufacturers in exchange for needed capital and idiotic mergers.
    Overconfidence can be blamed for half baked product, as can a million other reasons.
    There's no one reason why it all went wrong.

    Save money on expensive personalised car number plates by simply changing your name to match your existing plate - Mr PU51 DRY
    MOTORISTS. Pressing your 'fog lights' switch a second time after the fog has cleared will actually turn your fog lights off.
    Save time when crossing a one-way street by only looking in the direction of oncoming traffic. - D. Rogers, Hemel Hempstead
    A next door neighbour's car aerial, carefully folded, makes an ideal coat hanger in an emergency.
    HGV drivers. When climbing a long hill at 20 mph, the lane to drive in is the LEFT fucking one.
    FOOL other drivers into thinking you have an expensive car phone by holding an old TV or video remote control up to your ear and occasionally swerving across the road and mounting the kerb.
    When crossing a one-way street always look in BOTH directions in case a large blue furniture removal lorry is reversing the wrong way up the road. - D. Rogers, Hemel Hempstead General Infirmary
    AVOID parking tickets by leaving your windscreen wipers turned to 'fast wipe' whenever you leave your car parked illegally.
    A TEASPOON placed in a glass on the back seat of your car makes a handy audible gauge for road bump severity.
    BUS DRIVERS. Pretend you're an airline pilot by wedging your accelerator pedal down with a heavy book, securing the steering wheel with some old rope, and then strolling back along the bus chatting casually to the passengers.
    SAVE petrol by pushing your car to your destination. Invariably passers-by will think you've broken down and help.
    AVOID being wheel-clamped by jacking your car up, removing the wheels and locking them safely in the boot until you return.
    TAXI drivers. Why not pop into the garage and ask them to fix your indicators lights for you so that other motorists know where the heck you're going.
    Make people think you have an expensive car phone by calling them, asking them to repeat everything they say and then hanging up half way through their reply.
