I might buy the flange some parking sensors, once I've fixed the damage she caused the other day by backing into a post, need to learn how to spray paint next year!

 

Anyone know if this sort of thing will be ok or shit?

MrSavvy has reversing bleeps.... GR9+! However, I would prefer them to be 'ON' when it is parked in my street - with a MAHOOSIVE Klaxon - for when my neighbour reverses into it!!

 

Grrrr......

Rung up North Hants tyres to try and talk them into a bit of discount on some whitewall tyres......their eBay price is £440 and my budget is £400.

 

Answer machine message says they now closed for Christmas.......then continues to say enter code 'snowman' on our website for a 15% discount. Went on site and did that and even with carriage total was £396.

 

Happy Christmas me!

Just booked my car in to a very well regarded (by my 'not a girl friend' and she's a monumental fussy fucker!) body shop to get my bumper sorted out. Obviously not taking it back tot he two twats that did the last lot as every time I polish or clean the sod I find more faults in the paint! Just had to polish a patch under the doors they colour sanded and then forgotten about!

 

Can someone remind me on the 4th 'cos I AIN'T GOT A FUCKING CALENDAR!!!!!   :)

..................  so I said to the Elf

 

" I seem to have bought some old car from someone I don't know and some else I don't know is going to bring it to me, but my job is at risk and may be finished soon and I want to go fishing but the river runs out the Atlas mountains down to the sea and I had to sell my shed in Portugal so my orange trees where Mr Orange and his family were born now belongs to someone else so I can't sling my hammock between the trees and pick fruit in the sunshine anymore.

 

The Elf said "emmmmm"

 

 

I went on

 

"My redundancy won't be much and my pension will be buggered, I have my ole dads fishing rod he made himself but didn't get to use. My motorbike won't start and there's holes in the driveway, my socks smell.  I've baked a cake.

 

 

The Elf said "emmmm"

 

 

 

 

I carried on

 

"I really don't know what to do, should I get another derelict shed in Portugal with my redundancy then drive some old car i don't know anything about to the Atlas mountains and spend my time fishing with my old dad's fishing rod?"

 

 

The Elf, pointing,  said " That way lies Chaos"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And indeed it does

They've announced the potential line-up for new Top Gear;

 

Chris Evans, Sabine Schmit, Chris Harris.

 

Has the potential to make it a program about car reviews rather than glorified public school boys own annals, I hope.

Chris Harris is great, no trace of ego and a genuine love for all things car, and I reckon Chris Evans will be bearable. Much better than the other three who were unwatchable. Might actually watch it!

 

Look how down to earth and amazed by old crap cars he is:

There is a thread for eBay dreamers but this is in a class of its own, so it's here instead....

 

Bloke on the Bentley forum (bloody foreigner ) has a car identical to mine, same colour, year, spec everything and wants, wait for it......

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

110,000 euros for it!!!

 

Blimey, that's about three quid in real money!

as i remember, vauxhall, generally and john cleleand especially whinged the most about alfa romeo reading the rule book twice, carefully and then asking a lawyer what they thought, so that they could sell the 155 silverstone with the extra bits for the front splitter and back spoiler, in the boot, under the spare wheel.

 

and then complaining even more when aldi went and did the same thing with their A4 quattro.....

 

scottish twat.

 

that should really be in the grumpy thread, sorry!

The last interesting thing to happen in motorsport! I watched live and it was amazing, especially as a fan of Cavalier GSi.

I'm tempted to try and organise some sort of AS Forza race, but don't know if it'll fall flat on its face when it turns out there's more Megadrive owners than Xbox owners on here.

There's some class old chod in there though. I got a screenshot with the X1/9, a Volvo Amazon and a Fiat Panda or something.

Finally the internet proper is installed and crikey Fibre is fast!  Been lurching along on basic internet with an ancient computer for so long I hadn't realised how crap it was (much like my car history, really).  As a nice little Christmas bonus, Open Reach technician who came out was remarkably easy on the eye and not at all patronising when I couldn't work out how to make the new modemyrouterthingy appear on my new computer.  So I am in a good mood.  Also, Carmageddon:Reincarnation which was bought for me in March of 2014 is currently downloading so I can play that after a very, very long wait!  It's the first time I've had a competent enough computer to play it so I missed out on all the beta testing but hopefully also missed out on the worst of the bugs.
