It doesn't really make me grin but fuck me how thick can someone be 

Car boot sale , I got there just as a lad was leathering one of the traders , somebody pulled him off .

Turned out the lad had a storage unit , numbnuts trader had broken into it, stole a load of gear , caught on cctv  , 100% him , then he tried selling it 100m from where he'd nicked it from which had consequences he wasn't expecting.

Not very Autoshite but i drove my mate's GT4 at the weekend.  Christ almighty it is some machine, not my thing but the speed and especially the ceramic brakes were something else.

ST205, 185? I hope you're referring to a Celica too lol.

My sister’s come to visit and have her 2001 C5 MOTd while down here. Its on 201,000 miles, has blasted 250 miles down the motorway to us, has had zero prep and has passed after a new ball joint and presumably some work on the rear earths to get the bulbs to stop interfering with one another. 
 

I enjoyed its 45 minute trip to the garage early this morning— the 2.2 pulls really well. I nailed it up to three figures— as I’m not used to turbo diesels it felt great!
 

I’m quite pleased with that considering I can’t even get her to check the tyre pressures! 
 

Uncovered that under her toddler’s seat is a bio hazard. 🤮

First there was the 11'-8" bridge then there was Milwaukie Roundabout.

Now we have Speed Bump Olympics.

 

Is there an absence of signage here or just a lot of mouthbreathers?

Plumbase have just rang. It's plate day at Newcastle racecourse on the 25th of June and they have a marquee.
I and partner have been invited for a four course meal, free drink all day and night, afternoon tea and Pete Tong on in the tent at night.
Just so happens I'm fifty on the 25th too. Canny birthday treat.

25 limit, people going 50+

Local contractor got upset and built the two humps back to back. No signage.

Result, people go flying

That article is dated 2013. Have those ones in the video been there that long?

In the comments (in one video) it says that there is a 25MPH limit on the road. This is sign posted. About 100 yds from the bumps the posted speed is reduced to 10MPH.  These certainly do not fit in with any of the recommendations which are published from various bodies. Twin speed bumps so close together are not acceptable because of the risks you see. Both to the damaging of the  vehicles and to possible loss control.

Nah, if you hit the first one fast enough  you land nicely on the down side of the second :)

Whilst waiting at the lights I noticed that the blue BMW alongside had an incredible dose of BL orange peel paint finish. I was even more surprised when it pulled away and I could see it was a 22 plate. Are they coming out of the factory like that ?

It made me laugh that the driver was obviously ignorant of the passenger side's paintwork or just thought that it was acceptable on a new car.
