1959 was a vintage year.  :) ::)

Issigonniss launched the Austin Mini Seven, and in great British tradition, it was under *developed, poorly engineered and still a great success for 40 years. 

*My dad had one that leaked from the floor when it rained and had 3 gearboxes under warranty.

I remember seeing one or two early Mini badged as Austin Seven.

There was a Morris Mini Seven and an Austin Mini Seven, and later a BLMC mini and a leyland mini, and eventually a Rover mini. all as shite as the last. (Says the man who despite his father's advice owned 4 at different times. (2 at once)

Do not forget also the Riley Elf and the Wolsey Hornet, one of the latter, a 1968 Hornet III we had in our car collection for 6 years. :D ;)

Horrible things.

The genetic mutations of the car world. :D

This Riley Elf looks like fun!  :)

they are being paid by the government to stay at home

somewhere is a scouser with a lamp and one more wish

 I always thought all Scouser were paid to stay at home, it's called "Benefits"  or for us not quite as old as Opti, Unemployment dole.

Fixed that for you BG!  :)

Well I need a rest when I die so if it involves being busy Iíll just stay alive >:(

Well if reincarnation is true Rae, then I expect it's like going through the door of the room you've just plastered, into the next room that you have to plaster.  :)

Well,  he could be busy being dead💀

As the old saying're certainly a long time dead.

At some point in the future I will be longer dead than alive. :y

You've obviously had a very hard life M'lud, and I hope that your long rest is very peaceful.  :y

Maybe you're looking forward to it?  ???  :)

I concur about squeezing into a metal tube with hundreds of others in order to get somewhere, but I will suffer it once in a while if I really have to.
A cruise on the other hand is my idea of hell on earth. I would rather jump off the side of a cruise ship than have to spend weeks sailing around on one.
As for driving to places from Calais ! You do know its in French France, which is full of French people dont you ?  :o  ;D

Ive done a fair bit of foreign travel in the past, but I cant see much, if any of it on the horizon in the future. Just cant be arsed with it tbh.
I havent even bothered going back to Norn Irn in the five years since I went over for 12 hours to attend my Dads funeral.

I used to say that until I tried one many years ago. Love to cruise now though, only 10- 14 days, and only luxury ones. Made some very good friends over the years.:y
I would not cruise now with C-19.

I'd have thought cruise liners are giant floating petri dishes at the best of times.  ::)

General Car Chat / Selling A Car In Covid Times
« on: 07 July 2020, 13:55:34 »
My friend has asked me to help sell his 90 year old mothers Renault C.l.i.o. and I'm happy to help if I can.  :y

But what do you guys think about selling a car and social distancing, as I'm not sure I fancy getting in a car with a stranger for a test drive at the moment.  :-\

I was thinking along the lines of agreeing the price, taking the cash and letting them take the car for a test drive on the understanding that if they bring it back in the same condition and with less than 5 miles on the clock, but they don't want it for whatever reason, they can have their cash back.  :-\

There are all sorts of snags and pitfalls with that though...  ::)

Maybe I should just man up and get on with it!  :)

I think Lord Opti was getting excited at the thought of a cheap Astra for sale in Barnsley!  :)

I suppose it is entirely possible the old boy has had a meeting with the grim reaper.

The stats say that Uncle STEMO was last active at 06:46 on the 1st July.  :-\

You can draw your own conclusions as to the definition of last active;)
