What makes you grin? Antidote to grumpy thread

Recommended Posts

My van was in at a local bodyshop for the tailgate painting and a few touchups before I sell it. As usual it took them three times longer than they said and it's not a particularly fantastic job.

I picked it up yesterday lunchtime, drove straight down the M1 back to work. Home from work after, and there and back today.

A bit after I got home I went upstairs to the bog and looked out of the window - there's a flipping roll of masking tape left on the roof!

It's been there for two days and about 80 miles!

I'm thrilled about that. It appeared on Ebay a few years back, looking quite rotten and a bit sad. Still shows as 2660cc because some idiot (perhaps when it was plate raped) put the previous four-cylinder A90 engine size.

Your wife won't have forgot how many cars. When she wants a new kitchen and you say you have no money. She will list all your cars and how much you have spent on them. For instance . If you have twenty pounds and your wife has five pounds. How much does your wife have??

No wrong answer. She has £25.00.  Weaker sex my arse. Happy anniversary.

Website where you can view some obscure car brochures. Go into 'Archive Cars'.

Don't blame me if you get no work done tomorrow. :-)

Enough material in there to keep the 'One Shite Pic Per Post' thread going for years.

On my driving lessons in 1997 I used to pass a rural bungalow with a black FD Victor on the driveway which never seemed to move. Went along that stretch of road for the first time in some years about six months ago and remembered it, long gone of course and the bungalow now smartened up almost beyond recognition. Today I went to a local show (maybe four miles away) and just look what was there. Had a lovely chat with the owner who seemed pleased someone remembered it. I'm over the moon to actually see the thing properly after all this time. Full history from new, and it's had those wheels and seat covers since 1973!

Tidying up the garden yesterday I found 4 Passat alloys , that I'd forgotten about. I bought some 17" R ones for my estate last September for £130. I did try to sell the 16"s on Gumtree at the time for £100, got lots of offers of £40 so kept them.

Yesterday I washed them and put them on Gumtree for £130, a guy just picked them up , paid £130 didn't even try to knock me down.

if I live to be a thousand I'll never understand women or buying and selling old cars and parts- no logic involved in either.
