Perhaps it could be the start of flexible pricing.

Prices go UP a few percentage points at busy times.

Boris. Am I the only person who sees Boris flit from one disaster to another but come out smelling of roses,  just about.?

To the long list you could add Northern Ireland and Gibraltar.

What next , no potatoes or bread?

OMG don’t let the old fat bald turbo one from Wales see that. He will blow a gasket.

General Car Chat / Pikes Peak a la Ken Block
« on: 17 May 2022, 19:37:35 »
“ Introducing: the Hoonipigasus! This is the hill climb beast that I’ll be racing at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. It’s a Porsche 911 SVSR, built by BBi Autosport in partnership with Mobil 1, and it’s a one-of-a-kind, mid-engine, twin-turbo, 1400hp, AWD, 1000kg, weapon. This meth-fueled monster is intended to be the world’s ultimate Porsche race car build with the sole purpose of trying to win the top class in the 100th running of the legendary PPIHC race. We’ve also teamed up with former pro snowboarder, musician, and internationally acclaimed street artist Trouble (Trevor) Andrew, a.k.a. Gucci Ghost, to launch this incredible new livery on this build. The livery, color, and name pays homage to the infamous 1971 Porsche 917/20 “Pink Pig”. Lots of work and planning went into this, and this project is just incredible!“

Do a google for photos.

Now that sounds like a serious contemnder!

Only in a democracy. You get a vote and then complain about the incumbent you voted in. . It really isnt fair. You could have been given Franco, Putin or Xi!

We wont.We could ressurect the Beatles and send them over there, and they still wouldnt win.
We will probably still come close to last.
It has been a political point scoring exercise for a long time now, and indicates that most European dont like the British, apart from when we are in their countries either spending our money, or defending them from invaders.

Not to worry. Macron has a plan to change all that. A two tier Europe. Normal/Proper countries then Albania, Britain etc. at tier 2. Then we would get a few more points.

I’d love to see a spoof auctioneer run this through auction.

So, we have before us a really old Ford Escort MK1. Not a particularly desirable car when new so it will feel really dated now. But, hold on, this is not an ordinary Escort MK1. This is an RS, a BDA/AVO model, which means nothing other than you’ll pay more for it than a meagre GT.
Not only is it an RS, it’s a very recently resprayed RS, so you can’t see what’s lurking underneath. The front indicators should have been removed for the respray but the seller decided to hand paint around them in case the rust behind them made it difficult to get them back in.
Right then folks, it’s your money to spend so let the bidding commence. Shall we start at a sensible £1K, do I hear £1.5K.

 ;D ;D

Won’t be long before someone says good Omegas will command high prices. Oops I just have!

When everyone is driving economical, ele tric cars that are speed governed, old luxurious gas guzzlers will be highly sought after. The only problem might be living long enough to see it happen. Our children will though.

Mostof the world against them ?

I think there are three camps .

The West who , perhaps understandably, believe they have right on their side

China, India, Pakistan and quite a few other countries that see Russia as a natural ally and trading partner. India buys a shed load of military hardware from Russia  and Russia opens up trade routes to the North of India.

The rest probably sit on the fence. Argentina as an example wouldn”t rush to help Britain when/if it is taken in a surprise coup using surprise weapons . There are many other countries that sit on the fence  too.

So maybe most of the world isnt actually against Russia……..

Good thing to have Finland and Sweden in NATO?

Finland have 200,000 soldiers. That is quite a lot compared with say Britain.
Putin won’t be happy. Exactly what he said he didn’t want is happening.
