It'll be painted as a victim of BREXIT, but isn't the cost of EU carbon credits also a factor?  ???

If so, given that we have one of the cleanest economies in the world, where's the sense in letting it fail and then importing steel from dirty economies like China etc?  :-\  ???

Also as Varche points out, it's a strategic industry so should be helped out, but wait that's against EU law!  :o  and as we're destined to become a province of the USE there is no need for steel production in the UK as the state planners have already decreed that the USE's steel production will take place in Romania.  ;)

I've been meaning to post an update as I'm almost exacty2 months and 5000miles into my ownership.

.......

So, in summary,  :y

I was listening Jimmy!  :y  ;D

Sounds great and I'm quite into the idea of an EV!  :y 

I wonder what the values of the G-Whizz are like these days?  :D  ;D

Big Griff's new car!  :)
I really fancy a bonkers old Saab like that. :D

In a similar vein, I've always thought this 96 project was one of the coolest cars I've seen in a long time... 8)

we have a Landrover camper, ex ambulance converted to camper,
it means we can get off the beaten track,
3 weeks last year up to the artic circle we spent 4 nights on campsites, the rest of the time, we stayed in woodland clearings and out of the way places.

That sounds awesome!  8)  :y

That might be a bargain Terry, but I'd go and see it before you buy it.  :y

It's got 3 days left and Martock is just down the road.  :)

Having said that I bought my V70 blind and went to Canterbury to collect it.  ::)

The estates were quite popular,I nearly bought one back in the '80s even though it had that awful Ford V4 engine in it.

I always thought that the V4 was part of the charm?  ;D

That looks nice!  :y  But I've always thought the RR Sport is a bit of a Footballer/Hairdresser type thing.  :-\

It's a gorgeous colour .. I spoke to the seller today and didn't get the warm fuzzies; it's been transferred into a company name recently and, despite being listed as a private sale, seller asked if I wanted to part ex anything..

When my mate lived in Houston, he had a new shape RR Sport with the supercharged 3ltr V6 petrol engine and it was a lovely car!  :y

But... We went camping and struggled to get 2 blokes and stuff, a labrador and her stuff, camping gear, 2 boogie boards, and an ice box in it!  :o  And that was with the back seats down as well...  :-\

Its a Ford part, as used on some of their US tat, quite common to source from Ford s they are cheaper.  >:( :(

Hopefully I won't need it - I ran away from that one faster than I arrived ;D ;D

That said, this one is tempting: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201905147940145

Later 5.0 V8s go for a lot more money than the earlier 4.2.. which is a shame, as the facelifted cars are much nicer inside.

Although the full fat Rangie is also a posers car, you do get the feeling that you could drive it across the Serengeti in the wet season and get through!  :y

Big cars for people with big fat wallets!  :P  :)


And small ????, Well that's what they say,. Big wallet, small --- :D ;D :)..

My wallet is empty  :o

That's Lord Opti's line!  ;D

Have you compared that with other warranties available M'lud?  ???

Warrantywize etc?  :-\

Which is the one promoted by Quentin Wilson?  ???  I'm sure that would be fine.  ::)

Much like pet insurance. They will either run a mile or charge the Earth if you ask them to insure a shagged-out 10 year old mutt.

I can't say I blame them for not wanting to insure your dog if you have been having sex with it!  ::)  ;D

It seems to have spent more time in the Jaguar workshops having warranty work than sat on your crunchy drive M'lud?  :-\

TV, in general, is, and always has been, a dangerous tool. Climate change, menstruation, mental health are just three of the subjects that focus groups are urging the people who write the storylines for soaps and dramas to include. Whilst these are noble causes, I don't think the general soap-watching public should be brainwashed by the likes of Eastenders, Corrie, etc. As Jaime says, we've seen the effect that trash tv has had on the people that watch it and, if you can change people's behaviour towards the three subjects I mentioned above, then you can do it in much more sinister ways.

Yes indeed.  Just imagine how Goebbels could have used television and in particular the soaps :o :o :o :-X

Ah yes silly me,  the untermenge need protecting from themselves.  ::)

To drive such a car Henry will need to be .......

A liberal-minded gay love teacher or philosopher from  Helsinki or.....

A suicidal depressed detective from the north of Sweden.

......and thin wire-rimmed spectacles must be worn at all times.

Don't forget the roll necked sweater!  ;D

That's a nice looking car Henry and I hope it serves you well!  :y
