eBay tat volume 3.

Recommended Posts

Can't quite imagine anyone penning anything about a TDCi/S-Line/Bluemotion can you...? Unless it was some waffly softly sung version of an 80s hit, used simply to sell more of the things...

YES. On the same page.

It probably took more time to write 'have we had this yet' than to check the previous few posts..

And whilst I'm in an uncharacteristically arsey mood, can people please stop all the posts that are quoting previous ones, complete with all the pictures and text, just to say some inane drivel that no-one cares about like 'ooh yes' or 'I like that'. That's what the 'like' button is for. This once fine thread is already clogged up with countless pearoasts and suchlike.

 

Aaaaaand relax.

Are you a bored, lonely loser with the mental agility of an egg mayonnaise sandwich?

Why don't you find something French (or in this case BulgaFranco) for sale abroad, join a forum, pretend you're going to collect it and wait for the warm welcomes and congratulations from your new friends to flood in.

Or you could just spend the evening like any other, sobbing into your wanksock because Mum gave you spaghetti hoops instead of alphabetti spaghetti with your fish fingers for tea.

You know when some random, toothless smpleton is pissed and wants to fight you, but they're so hammered they can't look at you straight?

I could do with borrowing this seller's calculator, as some how an £80 car with £250's worth of damage and no MOT is £245.

this one intrigues me, not the car (although they don't come up often and the description is good) It's that the photographs make it look like it's in a back yard, when you look at all of them there appears to be no way out, has it been walled in?

There must be a reason someone would want to weld the skeleton of a portacabin onto the back of an American pick-up truck, but I'm f*cked if I ever met anyone pissed enough to consider it

'have the back  bed as a log carrier for the cool look'

 

Cool look? That's actually less 'cool' than me taking my kids to town playing Neil Diamond cassettes and singing along with the windows down in a car that sounds like it's about to explode any minute.

I could understand that look if he'd just come home with it, but apparently you've had it from new
