We're off to see the Skizzer, PT 2.

Recommended Posts

Today is the 10th anniversary of the Burd and I's first date. She appears to be a keeper!

 

We're currently in the £150 Audi, boot loaded thusly:

We're off on a quasi "Anniversary trip/kullekshun mission". This will be a slow burner - don't expect instant payoff, but hopefully it'll ultimately be worthwhile..

 

Next stop Tebay..

Chodspeed geezer. 

 

Glad to see old faithful toolbox still doing good service. It put a crease in the nearside wing of my MX5 when I achieved opposite lock on the roundabout near Dunblane forgetting it was in the boot.

That's some amount o' beans man. 

 

Looks magic, only criticism would be distance between the hash brown and beans, should have used the sausage as a breakwater.

Is that a Gunson easibleed i see? Anticipating bleeding the brakes at the roadside, now that’s being prepared!

 

“This ones for helping old people across the road, this ones for raising money for charity, that one there is for changing a Fiesta Zetec cambelt in the rain, and this ones for hammering smaller sockets over larger items”

 

Maybe we should have Autoshite badges? This ones for evading ISIS in order to buy a Renault 20 in Paris, one for removing 20p from a handbrake, that sort of thing?

This one's for changing a head gasket on a K series rather than putting K-Seal in it

This one's for going all the way to Romania for a car nobody wants even there

This one's for going all the way to Finland for a car everybody wants but nobody knows what it is

This one's for honouring an eBay bid you made while drunk for a badly described car with only one blurry photograph

This one's for driving that car home afterwards while hungover and fuelled only by a soggy train station sandwich

This one is for entering and losing 7 raffles in a row

This ones for buying all the vegetable oil in Costco

 

This ones for rescuing something nobody has ever heard of and fixing it to concours standard in an afternoon (aka Bollox Badge)

 

This ones not for anything in particular, it says “Vauxhall” and above it I have written “all” and underneath it I have scrawled “r shit” in biro. Because....

 

This one is for posting pictures of breakfast consisting of 20 Silk Cut, a lighter, and a coffee

This ones for topping up the coolant on a MGF with HGF using sparkling raspberry flavoured water because it's all you have to hand.

This ones for navigating your way to Shitefest following a trail of LHM. 

This ones for tying up an exhaust with the laces out your boots. 

This ones for jimmying up a drivers window with half a clothes peg.

Didn’t Skiz have a Dedra at one point? Or am I imagining that?

I already swapped the Dedra for a cheese and ham toastie. It’s still in the AS family though - new owner Dermist has nearly finished restoring it now.
