The Switchback is a challenging bit of road sober, easy to understand how that'd happen after a few sherbets!

Number pl8 reads 'AFRO' to me.
Gotcha :lol: Didn't occur to me as I'd noticed it was very similar to my old Carlton. A481RRO, loved that old thing, bought at auction in Mosely in about 1991 and it did me proud!

Rarely seen with all of the tail lights working. Is it owned by a coloured person?
Very odd you say that. He's white but called Delbert, in his seventies but still doing his bit. With a name like that I always assumed he was black.

Re: Wobland Spottage

Ha4d to believe how many of these used to be around and now you barely see one. It's in really good nick, including the back bumper. He's had it for years and has no intention of replacing it. Edit. Was it just the early ones the bumpers suffered on? tmp-cam-135125008.jpg tmp-cam-1617360300.jpg tmp-...

Re: Dangel 504 Pickup bits needed. Page 13

I've just checked the how many left site and it looks like the 405 is the only one registered on the road in 2020, there are 19 others left on SORN. Must get the photos sorted. I bought some Bilt Hamber Speed Wax which seems to be doing the job and is lasting well so it should only need a good rinse...

Re: Wobland Spottage

This was in Newport the other day parked just round the corner from where I was working. I can't say I've seen one before.

Re: Dangel 504 Pickup bits needed. Page 13

Still not got the second half of the bed so the 504 is still on hold.

In other news I just got insurance sorted for the 405. 3K mile policy and I've paid a bit extra to get an agreed value of 3K on it. I didn't think 136 quid was too bad?

Ahh the carefully designed in foam to trap the water, along with service departments that pretend the cars have had bodywork & refuse to do it under warranty.
That's the badger...

In Newport at the mo. Spotted this marvellous piece of handy work outside when the street was blocked. That's a quality gaffer tape bodge. As ever with that age of Golf the rest of it seemed to be in ok nick.
