... those who never asked. (The right questions at school) 😂😂😂😂🍺🍺🍺🍺👍🧐🧐🧐

I take it you never asked the basic politeness questions at school... because frankly  that’s just rude and shows a lack of understanding.

Ive had it reported, but to be honest I’m not removing it because I think it shows everyone exactly what sort of person you are.

@antony denman you keep posting fella.

Hi Anthony, having experienced similar shit at school, I totally get where you are coming from. 

As regards the Translation* I'm reminded of a phrase my friend uses:

"Other people's opinion of you have nothing to do with you" 

Please keep up the good work in the garage, looking forward to reading more about your projects! 

Kind regards, Stu 👍 😎

Hmmm.

Looked at Antony Denman's post: thought "chap's dyslexic" - and properly dyslexic, not the appropriated label nice middle-class parents use to conceal their disappointment that their spawn is actually thick.

Looked at New POD's post: thought "Hmmm... the Dunning-Kruger is strong here."

As someone else has said - Antony, you keep posting. I understood your post.

please tell when next lesson is am falling behind

I am a twat. Sorry.  It's not like I don't have family who are dyslexic either. Which makes it worse. 

There's me thinking I'm funny, when in fact I'm not.

Don't beat yourself up too much, we've all said things at some time that we regret

The Cortina is an interesting one. Silver Lotus? Of course the reg isn't shown so what's the deal?

Don't know if they had specific chassis numbers/strengthened shells like the Escort Mexico

Yes, seems to be the answer to those questions.

http://www.lotuscortinainfo.com/?page_id=24

Export Heavy Duty GT shell. Battery in boot plus mountings for anti tramp bars. All Lotus chassis numbers start BA91.

I suspect at sometime in the past somebody typed “ Lotus” after the word Cortina on a logbook and it came back as such from Swansea, remember Mark2’s were Ford Cortina Lotus not Lotus Cortina like the MK1. Also it was very easy to change what the DVLA recorded on logbooks, either through local offices or just Swansea’s laziness.

I though the Mk2 Cortina Lotus (A car I prefer to the more popular Mk1) was offered in a variety of colours?

Bugger, them ol' Reddit speculators must have got wind of this one. Expect prices of completely fucked Simca vans to reach £6,000 by tomorrow night, £170,000 by Wednesday, £5.3 million by Friday lunchtime (when Elon Musk announces his revolutionary new iFucked eSimca), then back to £255 by this time next week.

Way of the world, innit.

Are we allowing runway* finds? £750 gets you:

Cessna 150 Shell For sale Would make a great garden feature or project of some sort *Other parts for this plane are available at extra cost* Sold as seen

With a bit of tlc I'm sure it would crash land again.
