  1. Nothing Handles Like A Rental Car

    I hope you get a paper cut on your starfish x
  2. Caterham 160 - winter daily driver

    It can be done*. Here's how http://www.motorpunk.co.uk/articles/daring-daily-drivers-caterham-160/ *If you don't mind getting a shitty arse now and then.
  3. Nothing Handles Like A Rental Car

    Just be honest!
  4. Haynes motor museum

    Nice. It reminded me how pretty the Gordon Keeble is. https://s3.amazonaws.com/images.hagerty.com/vehicle/web/1966_Gordon_Keeble.JPG
  5. Has anyone had a Mini Cooper D?

    And a 1.4 litre engine instead of the 2 litre. No experience with Mini diesels, Mook, but I find the seats a bit short for leg support in Minis and can't really get comfortable in them on long journeys.
  6. Help! Shit! Car Insurance, two cars...

    Adrian Flux are morons. Anyway, FWIW, I just had a quote on what will (hopefully, I'm going to look at it tomorrow) be my new vehicle. £124 fully comp. I love classic car insurance.
  7. Nothing Handles Like A Rental Car

    Well, after many years of doing some hairy things in often mundane cars, my book is now on Amazon. There's a mention of a couple of TyreSmokers, too. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1542376882/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490804607&sr=8-1&keywords=nothing+handles+like I wonder what the first review will say...
  8. What's your favourite car currently in production?

    I love all of the above. I know it's a little flawed, but this QP GTS (Twin turbo V8) was bloody brilliant and exactly my kind of car; I really, really liked this too (but in BRG, please);
  9. Crash & Burn - Tommy Byrne

    Watched on iPlayer - what a brilliant little documentary from the BBC. I would love to know what he got up to, particularly with women, booze and drugs but suspect they didn't cover that out of respect to him and his family. He must have been a right party animal to have not been given a drive at McLaren considering his test drive times! I'd rather have a night on the lash with Tommy than James Hunt
  10. Wheeler Dealers on Discovery

    Fuzz - he's brilliant. Remember that mad house music outfit called Bentley's Rhythm Ace? He was their drummer.
  11. UK to USA £69 one-way, or £129 Return!

    Connecticut is quite nice, from what I remember (20 years ago...)
  12. Football results today

    That's fantastic, Andy! Does he live round your way? What a gent! Rob Kelly (remember him?) lived near me when he briefly managed Leicester. I might have mentioned I saw Vardeh [sic] in Melton not too long ago, I mistook him for a burglar, he was off for a jog in the park but looked so shadey outside the nice houses on Burton Road that I nearly called the rozzers!
  13. Wopps 918

    I saw him, and it, at Goodwood. Never met him before, a really nice chap and the car is magnificent.
  14. Venice....any inputs?

    Brum. Urgh. Yes, I've been. Often and everywhere. Urgh.
  15. Audi A3 e-tron first impressions

    Bloody name-dropper. (Great review, by the way)
