I happened to be driving through Filton this afternoon, saw lots of people hanging around and thought 'VULCAN!' So I'm sat in a side road waiting to see it...... :)

I was looking around the forums for some info on Triple QX oils, which I think is made by Petronas...  :-\  and saw a reference to National Tyres  doing a promo on oil and filter change.  The promo has ended but I phoned them up for a quote on The Merc and it'll be 44.70!!  :)

When in 'D' the gearbox automatically holds the car back on a hill, so no need to shift....  :P

Whats 1 2 3 for   .....

so that you can slow your car on the gearbox when going down hill with a caravan on the back ...... helps to prevent frying your brakes.  :y

Brakepads are a lot cheaper than gearboxes!!  ;)

Gearboxes don't fade. ;)

Maybe not, think I'm fading though..  ;D

What the hell do you guys put in your caravans!?  ??? Brake fade?? It's a family car not a fully loaded artic!  ::)  ;D

Little Grey Fergie tractor.  :)

I was about 9 or 10 years old in the field and once my Dad felt that I'd got the hang of it, off he went for a cuppa leaving strict instructions ringing in my ears about letting the clutch go gently and not to much throttle.  ::)  So of course once he'd gone, just  to see what happens, I did the complete opposite, opened the throttle wide, dropped the clutch and pulled a wheelie!! :o Only a small one, but enough to make me kak myself!!! (not literally)  :-[  ;D

A good progression would be a new shaped Kia. They're similar to Vx in that they dont have a single bad looking car and are much better than what they used to be imo

They have that 7 year warranty! So if you buy a 4 year old Kia, and provided it's been looked after and has service history etc, you still have 3 years manufacturers warranty!!  8)  and as said they are much better than they were!  ;)

You have to put the promo code 'bigdeal31' in the box at the bottom of the checkout page. It dropped my price from 66 to 41 !!!  :y  I didn't buy, but I'll go through it again with better quality oil!  :)

If its parked on the road and has wheels on, I believe it has to be insured  :-\
Also if its a main road, it might be a idea to stick a red cycle light on the back corner at night time.

Other then that, I can't see a problem  :y

Not sure that it does need insurance to be parked up. I can think of a couple of caravans locally that have been parked up on the road side ...... can't see main road or side road making a difference to the legalities of it.  :-\ :-\ As long as it's not causing an obstruction.

The light might not be a bad idea though ....... shouldn't be too difficult to frig the caravan's battery to light a light on one side.  ;)


Not really sure tbh  :-\

Maybe one of our off duty rozzers could clarify this because i've been tempted to drag my sack o' shite back home and give it a good service.  Its not had one in the 8 years that i've had it  :-[ :-[
Not that I drag it far.  Its only 2.5 miles from the storage place to the site I use
  ::)

Blimey!! What a way to treat your wife!!!  :-\  Talk about treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen!!!  :D ;D

This has nothing to do with racing cars and everything to do with money, merchandising and image rights!!  ::)  As Albs has pointed out Simon Fuller is Hamilton's manager... Nuff said!!  ::)

That wise old sage Joey Barton has weighed in....  ::)

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/19749030

...and I think he has a point. 12 game ban for violent conduct ( or tickling as he puts it!  ;D ), 4 game ban for racial abuse, which as Lineker pointed out is just one game more that a regular red card!  :-\ Suarez got an 8 game ban/40,000 fine last year.  Not a lot of consistency at the FA....  ::)

To mere mortals like me, 220,000 is a lot of dosh!! What happens to it? Charity? or the FA Directors Christmas party fund?  Can/Does the Treasury get a cut? (Unearned income/Capital gains ::)???

Er..... Hello Mr Walesa.....  :-\

An interesting and memorable experience I'm sure!  :)
