  1. Looks like an Aardman Animations plasticene recreation for Shaun the Sheep!
  2. Birthday is actually in the week, but convenient today. Mum made the cake- she says she won’t take commissions but has taken lots of pics for people to make their own. And the original...
  3. Pretty sure the Ford Falcon was an N reg.
  4. Just back from Beaulieu autojumble. Not been for several years and it was a lot quieter with perhaps 1/3 of traders spaces empty. Not much for sale in the arena I liked either. Mason’s black silver shadow was smart though. some oddities spotted, one with hubnut @dollywobblersticker. big Saab display @Saabnuttoo.
  5. Watching Mona Lisa (again). The white jag I’ve just looked up says it hasn’t had its first mot.
  6. It’s surely old enough not to need a plate with bs markings? The 2cv doesn’t have one.
  7. Also no rust warnings so yeah!
  8. A bit like shangrila, the mystical city no one can find.
  9. Can you retrofit knock off to spin off?
  10. Wrexham car probably from Brooklands garage. My 2cv was STU and my CX RTU. TU was the area code.
  11. I’m going to Beaulieu on Saturday and possibly my birthday family visit on Sunday. Have a good weekend. if you need anything from the spring autojumble let me know. I like something to look for in the stalls.
  12. Lots of movement at work site this week with many Nigel mansell cars off to Monaco. Plus this 1970 Alfa Romeo Le Mans car which was also in the film with Steve McQueen . Recent £700,000 of invoices! https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mc22/monaco/lots/r0001-1969-alfa-romeo-tipo-333-sports-racer/1189668
  13. I can’t help thinking that it could well be a better selection tool. Douglas Adams was right - those seeking election should automatically be disbarred.
  14. Booked a ticket for Beaulieu next weekend for the autojumble. Is anyone going?
  15. My cousin’s wife has just won local election in new broughton wrexham as in independent. Didn’t know she was standing, and my cousin is in North Carolina at the moment for his son’s graduation.
  16. Serious crash on the m3 this afternoon . Motorway closed in both directions for an hour or two. Usual traffic chaos.
  17. Blue porcelain? I’ve just been reading John Le carre’s last novel where it plays a role. Not his best but he was on his way out I suppose.
  18. Who knows. Because French! They actually started this practice within the legal requirement of keeping parts supply for ten years from the last build date.
  19. The smell or that you can’t smoke wine?
  20. From watching hoovies garage on you tube his recent Maserati smells of cat piss. Apparently it’s crystal meth. Other than that it’s Sauvignon blanc, but you can’t smoke that.
