Think most footballers are overpaid posers, but having said that if the clubs are stupid enough to pay that money good luck to the individual.

New ones appearing every day in Lincolnshire, just got in from walking the dog & spotted another one that's opening up, the trouble is none of them are repaired properly.

Personally, I am more worried about cars over 40 years old being excempt from an MOT.

Can't agree with that most cars over 40 years old or older would be owned by enthusiasts probably owner club members & take pride in their chosen classic, I have a friend who owns a 1973  MG Midget & a 1975 MGB GT V8 cover very few miles annually but are still serviced & tested every year. My concern would be more with the local hooligan in the 3 series BMW who cannot really afford to maintain it properly & who drives with no regard to other motorists.

Certainly seem to be going nowhere fast.

Will no doubt drive some poorly maintained cars off the road but that's a good thing responsible owners who maintain their cars properly & deal with problems as they arise  should be okay, always amazes me when vehicles fail on tyre tread depth or poor wipers bulbs etc these are just basics.

No, but 70% of my motoring will be in the cooking oil car so I can afford a V8 for the other 30%. Same as now but a V6 rather than a V8 at the moment.  :y

I knew that there were real "petrolheads" on here
V8S are the way forward , forget eco nonsense.😀

When I bought my one owner 2001 Omega in 2010, it was for sale in my local main dealers showroom, it had been reduced from 2995 to 1995 and looked absolutely immaculate & totally out of place with the other run of the mill Vauxhalls on offer.

Boris can build his bridge if he wants, but that the chunnel or any other means of transport will never tempt me to go to France.
I have never set foot in the place and I never will.  :)

Quite agree got no inclination to ever go there.

Been to the museum a couple of times definitely worth a visit, some beautiful Jags upstairs.

I've had 2 a 2.6 CDX manual saloon & a 2.2 CDX auto estate , the saloon was up till now the best car I have owned bought it with 50,000 miles kept it 5 years and put another 50,000 miles on it never had any problems at all.
The estate was okay reliability wise but definitely underpowered. Now replaced with the Merc , Jeep & Subaru Forester.

My daughter loves her Forester, 2011 I think, recommended by an OOF member, thanks for that. She has had it 5 years, and I doubt will get rid until it gives up, even though she could afford a Ferrari! :y

Second Forester we've had they are superb.

Used to think  Peter Wyngarde was cool back in the seventies until I read about his liking for Gents lavatories.

Yep, he loved himself alright and he portrayed that in his characters.  He was a heartthrob in his day, but you could always tell he was gay!

RIP though :'( :'(
  :y Groovy dress sense though ;)

Got to agree with that those suits shirts & ties were fabulous in the seventies.😎

Unmarked Plod got me a few years back on the M3 , clocked at107 MPH: they said it would be an automatic court appearence for anything 100 MPH or higher.
They kindly looked after mu licence for me for 6 months.  >:( :(


I must admit I have driven at some ungodly speeds. I try to be aware of unmarked cars but you can never be totally sure. :).

You and me both Opti, nowadays I do try my best to stay within the legal limits hard sometimes though.
