Recommended Posts

Seeing a ratted matt black 'n stickers Pisshat estate just like the one in the Ebay Bargains thread being carted off for scrap on the back of a hiab lorry earlier made made me grin enormously :D

This Chinese bus makes me grin. Living the Autoshite dream!!

While this looks interesting and very autoshite, it just goes to show how out-of-touch the Juan Kerrs at the BBC are with the world. If we are to believe the video, there were no passengers onboard, just the driver taking it to the repair place. They should go to Africa and have a look at some of the Estafettes that are estuffed to the gills with people risking their lives trying to get from one town to the next.

Dealing with a "difficult" customer..... hauled my ass to North Yorkshire with a few Acer spares and a selection of screwdrivers, lovely lady with a genuine problem and I spent two hours rebuilding her laptop on the dining room table being fed coffee and offers of cake and chips (not together). Difficult my ass, she just appreciated someone taking a bit of time.

And I got a nice drive out in the sun, on overtime rates :D

I demand a "Prize for the Best Dressed Person" award at the next Autoshite event.

To be honest, I think that is an award you could win quite easily just by not wearing greasy jeans and a holey old jumper.

 

At our next meet I'm wearing a longish jumper under a short PVC jacket. Classy!

Perhaps we could make it into a "Worst Dressed" award? Special points given for unmanageable hair, poor hygiene, etc.

I'm grinning because in the past two days, I have spotted two bits of early 80s BL shite on local numberplates, and one was even wearing a Leycare sticker in the window.

I spotted a number plate on Thursday evening, attached to a '90s Audi, '14 LOL'

 

Best bit - the rear one was a crusty, pressed metal Serck :D Photo in my spotted thread some time I expect.

Anyway "on topic"

What makes me grin is the thought of fixing the artheritic donkey*, at the weekend AND hopefully doing some lovely Tig Welding.

 

 

 

*Artheritic Donkey does not exist, it is mearly the 309

None of you would have a chance in the 'best dressed man' if I showed up.

 

Mark, keep that welding work going, your services will be required as discussed at Cockonmondaydillydally Castle t'other week.

Looking forward to the pics Trig!

 

I'm grinning because I actually managed to get off my arse this morning and have been cruising around in the sunshine, Austin Cambridge style, taking photos of shite to post in my spotted thread. Managed to photograph some pretty cool stuff which I'd been after for ages. :D
