Autoshite dreams?

I saw a Maestro here in Belgrade a while back (the original, not one of the Bulgarian ones). Very, very rare sight. A bit run down, but looked like it was capable of moving under its own power.

 

Looking up Maestros and Montegos that evening, I found this:

 

 

That night, I dreamt dreams most strange...

 

There was also a C32 Nissan Laurel parked a few hundred meters from the Maestro. I like to think the same person owned both.

 

Should have left a note.

Had a dream Richard from Keeping Up Appearances was showing me the 'beauty' of the mechanism of an old 80's metallic red Rover/Jaguar door lock mechanism. The car was parked outside the shops on the pavement outside the shops near me. (right in the centre here)

I was lying on top of the car (on the roof), and I remember Richard had the key in the lock turning it but it was stiff. He was saying 'Listen to how beautiful this locking mechanism sounds'. As I was lying down I put my ear to the corner of the roof to hear it reverberate and it make this heinously bad crunching sound that sounded like a seized locking mechanism breaking. He loved it though, and I was pretending to agree it was really nice.

Just awoken from a dream, where I'd bought a beige Talbot Samba, with a lovely orange interior. Having driven it to work I took a friend for a quick spin and parked back up only to notice a trickle of liquid. Yep it had spat all its coolant out! So I locked it and the key snapped in the lock...

 

I woke up annoyed at the Samba... Then realised I don't really have a Samba...

 

Not sure if it was a dream or a nightmare!! Definitely shitey tho!!

Just woke from one where I was on a ferry to Riga, Latvia with the intention of collecting a Peugeot 504 that'd been off the road a while. I had no idea how to get to it once ashore, no breakdown cover and a vague notion of the way back (aiming for Calais to give the car a run). Hopefully one day it comes true

I seem to be dreaming about scrapyards lately. One dream involved Eddy Ramrod trying to remove the wire wheel hubcaps from a Cadillac.

That coach for sale thread must have resonated more than I thought.

 

Dreamt that I had 'the' coach and was planning to take a bunch of work colleagues out one night for a paranormal tour/ghost hunting experience. My colleagues were all dressed up in Halloween costumes at that point too.

 

I remember being very impressed with the sunken toilet. I also remember thinking that I really must figure out how to drive it and was wondering how much space it would take up in the road when I parked up at home.

 

I obviously need an old coach in my life.

Third time I've had this dream - find myself in my ex's house, usually in the loft and always taking stuff that belongs to me, but not stealing, but shouldn't be there. Hear her coming up the path and frantically leave through the back door, and escape along the side of the street. Never been caught but last nights dream I hear her says she's spotted me repeatedly and I scarper up the street, and then I woke myself up.

No idea why I'm having the same dream over and over again - there's nothing in the house that I want back.

Have Pinewood Studios talked to you about the rights for that one?

 

Carry On AutoShite.

 

Babs is still alive.  I'm sure we could get some sort of plot together.

 

Something about A-framing a Renault 20TX through the Chunnel with an Austin Maxi Diesel.

 

And welding.  Lots of welding.

In my garage, and I'm under instruction from Quincy ME that he needs to be smuggled out of my garage in the boot of an old early 90s Ford Mustang. I see Aston across the road in a Mondeo with tinted windows, he's checking on Quincy.

It was metallic red with a white convertible roof and white leather inside. There's a digital display relating to the air con on the centre console, I'm switching through, there's about one hundred or more settings to the LCD, there's countless settings and it takes me ages to go through them. One says 'Frozen', 'warm', 'outside', several are strange hyroglyphs and symbols, and one setting is named 'bollocks'. Behind the buttons is a small glovebox, inside is a piece of formed foam, I realise this glovebox is used to store this foam.

 

I'm backing the mustang into my garage and realise Quincy and his assistant Sam are loading medical equipment into a scrap BMW 5 series which belongs to the fellow over the road. It has been banger raced prepped, Quincy then climbs into the boot and Sam shuts it behind him. I wonder what's going on at this point. My mum appears and says 'ooh it's lovely isn't it' and asks if it's a Lancaster Bomber and I say no it's a Ford Mustang. (Roll eyes, women!)

I dreamt I was watching the footie last night but the pitch was covered in a foot of snow and they were struggling to boot the ball more than a couple of feet. I found this hilarious, must of gone on for ages. Utterly pointless dream.

I can still vividly recall a dream I had on the Friday night of Shitefest. It involved the holy grey grille Sierra, which is logical enough as I had just seen it for the first time that afternoon. For some reason I had the keys for said car and I gave them to my unrequited love Jodie and told her it was the most sacred thing in the world so it was a matter of national importance that she looked after it, but I can't remember her reaction. We were at a run-down car auction where bidders were given a slip of paper to represent each car they had bought and I had hundreds of them in my hands. I then tripped down the stairs and dropped them all so Jodie had to help me pick them up. She asked me why I had bought so many cars and what I was going to do with them but I didn't have an answer.

 

Maybe it means she'll fall in love with me if I give her a Sierra?

Had a dream I was snorting cocaine with Brad from Neighbours. When I say snorting cocaine, I mean burying my head in a small hill of cocaine and having my entire face covered in it.

For a while, I used to have a recurring dream in which I would become aware of the fact that I owned a second car I didn't previously know about (or maybe had forgotten about). Different car every time, but always something old and unremarkable, like an Escort Mk.4. Not sure what Dr Freud would have made of that...

I get this!   Usually with me its something crumbling from the Sixties and I wake up in a blind panic because I haven't been up to the garages to run it up for months.    

 

I had an car-related dream last night involving a mate who had bought a Chevy Nova with a full house Keith Black engine and we were debating where we could run it flat out in a straight line.  For some reason Kemble Airfield was suggested and we were figuring out a way to get it past security when I woke up. 

 

Perhaps I shouldn't be reading American Hot Rod magazines in bed.....

There was a brief discussion on here a week or so ago about Citroen C5s, which migrated to my subconscious and turned up in a dream where someone had bought a shonky blue C5 saloon and was worried by the blue puddle by a rear wheel. I had a look and found the end of the suspension unit was not attached to the suspension arm and had been beaten over with a hammer to keep the blue fluid (mostly) in.

I explained cheerfully that it didn't matter because Citroens were self levelling and can easily accommodate a rear wheel missing! "Just keep topping up the fluid" I say cheerily, and wake up, leaving the poor sod to it.

 I had a shite dream within a dream  :D I was at the mot place to pick up a sierra or something can’t make out what it was from memory.
But to get that home i had to reverse up my e39 onto a bit huge bit of wasteland near the test centre, I got in and started it but as i was reversing i had that helpless feeling that you get in a dream sometimes and as i was reversing and my legs just flailed aimlessly as the car got nearer to a wall... CRUNCH

So i climbed outside and checked the bootlid. It had less dents in the dream than in real life haha.

I then left my car there just dumped on the waste ground which is odd because I don’t like leaving it in spots like that (even though the garage I use backs onto waste land this was a bit in another part of town).

 

So woke up from that inside my dream by a ringing phone.
It was someone claiming to be a mate but they wouldn’t tell me who (because I’ve got a few absent friends these days?), and they moaned that the call was costing 9 quid. I put the phone down.

Que some dream haziness then it rings again. It’s not my mate it’s a daft woman and she’s asking my name, And offering to make me rich and saying she has business opportunities..

I tell her to fuck off as I don’t want to play any part in her pyramid scheme.

 

 

There’s a lad who lives down my street who’s about my age he works at a fiat main dealer and has had track prepped fiat coupes and a few uno’s he always drives a v70 now though and has a habit of parking it badly! So this kid had come round mine to fix a bit of his car think it was brake related but looked like a gas bottle regulator and gauge but 3 times usual size. Was all red with ‘’BOC’’ on it what the fuck?!

He had a volvo v70 estate commercial 2 door in faded blue(I know these do not exist but try picture one and no back windows could be seen so yeah), My brother was sticking his neck in too yet he knows nothing about cars doesn’t care about them either.

He had mangled a few of the brass fittings like completely rounded them off (which is unlikely as he's a competent mechanic) I was adamant he needed a 14mm spanner but could not find one in the dream.
This is odd as between me and my old boy we must have about 20 as we hoard hand tools!!

I have had the same dream a couple of times about my first car still being in the garage and I'd just forgotten about it being there. When I find it I want to get it ready for an MOT but I just can't get it out of the garage because all my current cars are blocking it in.

 

I also have a recurring dream about my Grandma, she's been dead for almost 20 years, but she used to live 2 minutes down the road from us on the way to the local park, I'd regularly pop in to see her as I was riding past on my bike. My dream its set in the present day and I suddenly realise that my Grandma is still alive and still living there, I just haven't been round for 20 years. I go round and everything is exactly as it was, and then I am filled with regret for the 20 years I hadn't been to see her

 

I thought it could be some latent anguish over the death of my Grandad, who had a stroke and was in hospital for many weeks before he died, I only ever went to see him once and it was a harrowing experience. I struggled with that guilt for a while after he died, but I was young, he was the youngest and fittest of all my grandparents and there was never any question in my mind that he'd recover. My Grandma also had a stroke, so, still somewhat haunted by the experience with my Grandad, I was at the hospital every night. Unfortunately the outcome was still the same.

 

Not sure why the dream is about her though, so probably nothing to do with any of that.

 

Also had a weird dream last night about the rancho purchase currently being documented on here. I'd put a post on a Facebook group about it being an epic shite collection, but none of my mates were seeing it the way I did and just thought it was a pile of junk. That is actually probably more of a premonition though, I just haven't made the post yet.

Griefs a weird thing i walked past my grandads front room window from a distance the night before he passed and was toying with popping in to chat to him for a bit.. I didnt next day he was gone.

 

So oddly thats the last image ive got of him, Sat in his front room watching a western probably.. He had a few strokes and a bypass and he wasnt getting any better, I think he just chose his time to go.. Was an ex pit mechanical fitter, if i could be a tenth as good on the tools one day id be happy.

 

He was always asking why i wasnt doing the mechanical work on my cars ''Your a fitter its only bushes piece of piss'' Etc.

I think he left me some of his shovel handed expertise behind cause ive got a lot more patient working on cars.

I've had a proper drought on the dream front. I think I'm having them but not remembering them.

I wish I didn't have this one last night.

Outside mums house. There's a very big (6 inches) daddy long legs spider next to front door. It didn't bother me as DLL don't have the scary legs and massive body.

Pointed out another spider to my brother which had a weird round body. He somehow collected it up in a glass and put it into a glass tank in the driveway which had gerbils in.

By this time the spider is about ten inches wide. Gerbils are unhappy with their new lodger, they're going mad, trying to jump out. This is upsetting horrible large spider, which then starts flinging itself around the tank. The whole tank is moving because it's so big.

I move away from the tank, and the frigging thing jumps out and lands on my shoulder.

I say to my nephew 'it's on my shoulder isn't it?' I'm trying to brush it off but it's clinging onto me.

 

I wake up sweating and start hitting my shoulder!! Horrible!

In the early hours of this morning I had a dream about some weird classic car rally. Entrants included a Datsun Laurel (like Spottedlaurel's but blue), a Lamborghini Espada, a Saab 900 cabrio and a Swedish-registered Fiat X1/9 but the star was a Maxi saloon. It was Tara Green and looked just like a normal Maxi up to the C-pillars but had a long boot like a Jag XJ and the back end styling of an Aston DB5. I blame all those photoshopped Maxis that have been appearing here.

I had this a while ago and it was horrible.

My ex was helping me fix my car - she was standing infront and I was revving the car, I was asking her what it was doing and she would tell me in that low level of knowledge that girls have. The car then lurched forward and crushed her to death! It was a properly harrowing dream that one.

Glad I've never had anything upsetting like that but the shite dreams are getting more frequent and the level of detail is amazing. Last night's starred a black Ford Taurus station wagon that was abandoned and partially covered with a tarpaulin on a driveway in a town called 'Dothalmongs'. I can even remember the reg: it was G426SDL, which doesn't seem to exist in reality.
