General Car Chat / Putins new limo
« on: Yesterday at 20:26:22 »
Just been reading a few bits about this,as far as is known.Apparently developed with assistance of Porsche and with an engine from them.A 9 speed gearbox developed by the Russians themselves and going from the pictures styling by[cloning]Rolls Royce-as near as dammit anyway.Will be a formidable piece of kit though.They speculate he'll be using it for his inauguration.

General Discussion Area / Engine recall
« on: 16 April 2018, 20:30:21 »
Ford have issued a recall on Focus ST and RS models-presumably engine number span to determine the affected cars-which involves holding the cooling system under pressure for 5hrs :o then depending on pressure loss over this time it's determined whether the engine "just" requires a new head gasket or a complete new head.Should this state of affairs really exist[from any manufacturer]in this day and age?

General Discussion Area / Can't do links

But has anyone else seen the footage of the two muppets who robbed a travel agents[I think]and then lost most if not all their loot when the wind blew it all up the street as they were legging it?

On this date 1918 the R.A.F. came into being and became the first air force in the world to become independent of control by the other services.

General Discussion Area / Historic?
« on: 25 March 2018, 13:09:39 »
I see the first non-stop passenger flight from Australia to England has just been done.Apparently it landed a few minutes ahead of the estimated time and doing the journey in one go shaves something like 3hrs off the usual time taken when stopping in the middle east for fuel/change of aircraft.

General Car Chat / Long time no see
« on: 22 March 2018, 07:59:05 »
Was in a Mustang[5L]yesterday and between speedo and rev counter it was displaying a vacuum gauge.Presumably this is a selectable display?Such a long time since I've seen the likes of this.I remember way back when that no self respecting boy racer would have been without such a gauge bought from local car accessory shop and mounted somewhere on the dash or screen "A" pillar.

General Car Chat / Selling points
« on: 17 March 2018, 18:30:43 »
For the Vignale spec Fords
Leather seats are buffed with ostrich feathers.......how would you know the difference?
Premium body colour paint...................what do the rest get?
Each one inspected by hand at a separate facility to ensure they meet the exacting standards of the Vignale spec......are the rest just thrown together and pushed out the factory doors?

General Discussion Area / Bridge collapse
« on: 16 March 2018, 19:30:50 »
The Americans were installing a pedestrian bridge over a roadway[can't recall where they said it was]from the pictures it looked like they'd got the over road bit in place but not the ramps/steps up to it.This bridge was allegedly designed to last 100+yrs and to withstand earthquakes and all sorts of other natural phenomena and the day after they'd installed it it collapsed onto the road beneath.Now I'd have found that hilarious if not for the fact that it crushed several vehicles when it did so and the last I heard was 8 fatalities from those vehicles-the death toll may have risen since then.

General Discussion Area / Clever
« on: 13 March 2018, 07:49:48 »
A report out suggests that the gene that makes you clever can also mean you live longer.So that's me well screwed as I'm thick as two short planks* :D




*No offence to planks intended ::)

Omega General Help / Bonnet struts
« on: 11 March 2018, 13:36:12 »
The gas[or whatever they are]that hold the bonnet open worth buying good used?The ones on mine won't hold the bonnet when it's cold[they seem fine at the present when the weather's warm.Are they the same for F/L as for earlier cars or did they change?

General Discussion Area / Might be interesting
« on: 24 February 2018, 19:22:36 »
Monday night on Channel 5 at 9pm the first of a two part documentary charting the history of the Flying Scotsman and exploring why this particular engine inspires such affection amongst steam fans.

General Discussion Area / earthquake
« on: 17 February 2018, 19:34:23 »
An earthquake measuring 4.4 has hit South Wales today.Apparently the effects were felt up to 200mls away.Not seen any reports of fatalities so hopefully no-one has died due to this.

General Discussion Area / Time traveller
« on: 15 February 2018, 08:04:59 »
It seems that some bloke has travelled back from the year 2030 and has made a variety of statements-such as Trump gaining a second term as president-as to what will happen between the present day and 2030.As he's passed a lie detector test this must obviously be true :-X

General Car Chat / What kind of job?
« on: 12 February 2018, 19:46:01 »
Saw a van today all logo'd up with company name below which it proclaimed "Global Automotive Surveyor" What kind of job is that?What is it that they do?

General Car Chat / Curiosity question
« on: 10 February 2018, 21:10:01 »
I've seen/heard much discussion of late about this idea of zero tolerance on speeding and the use of cruise control to make sure of not falling foul of speed cameras etc. Given that speedometers are not truly accurate where does the cruise take its cue from?Or are cruise speeds just a best guess also?Just curious really as to what tells the system you've hit the speed you've selected.Must admit I've never yet used cruise on any car I've driven with it fitted it's just another useless piece of kit I don't particularly want or need.
