Re: What was your first crash in?

I hated my Volvo 340 1.4, it had no redeeming features whatsoever. Couldn't get it to run right, it was thirsty and slow. Handled badly but not even in a fun way. Ragged it round for a bit but something broke and it lost drive. Someone told me it was probably the aluminium propshaft but I didn't loo...

Re: What did you do today?

I put a 2009 Mondeo on my trailer today. A surprisingly big car, way bigger than the early ones but under the plastic engine cover was the same old diesel engine they have been using for years! It looked just like the one in my old 1989 Escort apart from loads of crap stuck on it

It's very nice. I've already made a mental note to keep away from country lanes with dry stone walls,bad weather and low flying bmws

Went to the car auctions tonight. Porsche Cayenne £1800. Hand was twitching. Ugly things but big V8 cancels that out.

What is the gayest car anyway? I reckon Nissan Figaro or Daihatsu Copen.

Re: My new daily roundabout!

Definitely not Renault,thars a facelift xantia is that. Low redline says 2.0 hdi. Fair play bub you have nailed it. Your knowledge of Xantias is more anal than a bucketfull of bumholes. Easy to narrow down. Binnacle is xantia,5k redline says diesel,digital odometer is only on facelift and the only ...

Re: My new daily roundabout!

Original dealer plate and sticker porn! IMG_20200212_121921.jpg So to sum up, what a bargain. This car has been looked after well by the previous owner. It's just had an MoT , oh and did I mention it owes me £200?? Well, more like £280 after buying train tickets, diesel and lunch but I'm my book tha...

Re: My new daily roundabout!

IMG_20200212_121757.jpg ok maybe twenty. Some dents IMG_20200212_121943.jpg and some rust IMG_20200212_121845.jpg some dodgy body rep...

Incidentally, Reigate has the best fish and chips I've ever tasted inland.
Which one did you go to? The one literally on the level crossing?
Yes that's the one!
