Brill!That Micromen thing inspired me a bit. Im going round me dads tomorrow to dig out my old C64 and zx81.I am also trawling the net to buy an Acorn Archimedes A3000. Don't suppose anyone has one they want rid of?!
YES! It's very exciting, except it isn't, because nobody turns up to my sodding lot for days.
Well dear, how about this sporty Estelle?
Sod you then. More days of silence follow.....
Except from this tosser. Go away!
Another low-rent punter appears, let's have another crack at that Estelle.
GET THE HELL OFF MY PITCH
Spectacular. You remember when I asked you to do me a copy of that Spectrum emulator? Well do you fancy getting a move on with it?
Is this downloadable from anywhere? Preferably without an emulator.
I'd love to play that game!, Still not as cool as Andy Capp though.
Decided to head down to the auctions and picked up a tidy Volvo 343 and a rough Fiat 126. I've only got a 5-car pitch, but there was a little beauty I couldn't resist adding to my trade stock.....
Hey hey! Time to head back to the lot.
A sale at last! C U L8R bodged-up Cortina!
Approached by a punter. Bidded him on it. He wanted too much. Was only some rubbish ex-rep car by the sounds of it. Still, I always go to the auctions on Wednesday - let's replace the gap the Cortina has left.
Time to increase my J-tin portfolio with this Civic. 82K on a 5-year-old car could be a problem.
Unless you're Quentin Wilson. Let's adjust those figures a bit.
There we go!
Mint Sunny and cash for a rough 126? Yeah alright then!
Into the next month, giving me an opportunity to knock a few prices down - see if I can shift that sodding Estelle.
But here we are, someone who fancies the Sunny, knocked a bit off the price - we got there in the end!
Might update this more tomorrow. This is quality! Anyone else who fancies it, it's over here: http://www.worldofspectrum.org/infoseek ... id=0003396
(I recommend using the "Fuse" emulator, it's on the Internet somewhere)
That is exellent, It be even better if i understood how to download it all though!
Surely it wouldn't be too hard to knock up a server-based version of this game? A bit like all the 'RollercoasterFarmMafiaBrothelVilleWorldHell' shite on Facebook, maybe with some stunningly pixelated isometric graphics to add a touch more realism.We'd each start off with a plot, a mould-covered Sprite and a couple of hundred quid - the object of the game would be to rip each other off repeatedly until a lucky few had amassed enough wealth to build a concrete forecourt and spanking new Portakabin with toilets.Other options could include hiring a scatily-clad Albanian immigrant to wax the cars at weekends, or entering into business with some local travelling Irish businessmen.
How about this:

Gutted, Been playing Hirsts game for a whole month (40 mins in real time) and then it goes and crashes, just likes spectrum!
Good work Hirst! I will be downloading and playing this one later on.
I used to enjoy this one a few years ago, might not be a favourite of everyone in the Autoshite community but hey! Those Mk2 Granadas are only (very badly) pixellated.
It's quite addictive, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of skill involved to be honest.

I would deffo enjoy that!
GENIUS.I've been looking for an idea for a game to write. This is it.
I did get partway through a Top-Trumps game based on Autotrader.... mainly because the old website just numbered cars sequentially, so if you clicked on a random car the address was something like autotrader.co.uk/cars/6859494.html. Add one to the number and you get another entirely random car. Add another one, get another random car. I was looking into how to get the specs from parkers.co.uk when Autotrader changed their entire website and broke my cool system

The filth! February wasn't a great month for "Clappers", but it was a busy one. Lots of part exchanges! One of the better ones being a tidy Audi 100, which sold nearly straight away - sadly had to take a part-ex against that too - another ropey Estelle but at least this time I only had to fork out Ã‚Â£100. Dumped it into the trade stock - some wag offered -Ã‚Â£25 for it. Clear off!
He's dreaming if he thinks I can fork out for an XR4i. Out of it!
But March saw the first operating profit - wahey!
Here's my retail stock now. Pog's Maxi is RUBBISH compared to mine.
And my trade stock. I've sold on the Civic so I'm deciding what will fill that gap. Not putting the Estelle on, took enough time to sell the last sodding one.
Astounded at how well-balanced and in-depth this game is, there's loads of cars available at the auctions. Missed out on an MG Metro last time.
Hey Hirst - is this game for real or just something you've created?I see the upper middle class family on Electric Dreams conformed to the the appropriate stereotype and got a BBC micro rather than a working class Spectrum ' they're just toys really'.Points to the father for buying 'Weekend at Bernies' as one of the under the counter VHS tapes though!
It's for real - I've been playing it all morning, it's ridiculously addictive. Good job I'm not at work as I'd have ended up smuggling it in somehow. Into July now, loads of deals, got a Princess in stock! Also took a high-mileage Fiat 127 in part-ex for an Escort Ghia, knocked about 40K off it and awaited a sale. Shortly after.....
Why did I listen to you, Quentin?!
After playing this game until 3.30 this morning and also for the last hour today I've come to the conclusion that i hate working with the public.
Fantastic game, my lunchbreak was spent on it.Is there a way of saving progress?
If you download it and play it through an emulator you'll be able to save it.Some woman came onto the pitch asking for a Stanza! Astounding. Haven't even seen one for sale, soz love!

In that, it's File, Save Snapshot. Don't bother using the in-game save options.Want to swap it for a Renault 14? Low on miles.....
I've just been offered a 1979 Ford Escort RS2000 with 55k for Ã‚Â£1400, I'm thinking about biting the traders arm off...
Trigger, It's not a real one!
