Not the four letter word I was thinking of...  :-X

I think Jonathan Pie nailed that one. "The turd that won't flush".  ;D

GM Europe went as far as building a prototype V8, but decided against it. The excuse given was that cooling was too marginal, but it seems more likely that the powers that be stopped it as GM Europe (along with Ford) had already decided to pull out of the big car market.

This hasn't stopped a member here doing it, however.  ;)

You can tell he's a footballist. No one in their right minds would post their NI number on the internet. I suspect his account is slightly less full at the moment.

Thereby lies the snag with getting a "normal job" for the other 30 years of their life. ;)

Surely the same thing can be said of electric vehicles?
No, no! The energy you use for an EV comes from thin air. It's magic, you see. Ask any vegan.

Yep, in the same way that living on beans and pulses cuts your greenhouse gas emissions. ;D

Is this a Jagdeo or Monguar?  :-\

Ah! a Banham. Kit car by angle grinder. ;D

A potential donor vehicle for a proper one perhaps? ;)

I've used both on LPG and found little difference. If there's a misfire occasionally, then I'd look elsewhere for issues, to be honest.

Those NGK plugs will be fine on LPG and you can get them for sensible money. :y I used to run them for 40k on LPG and change them at cam belt time. They came out still looking new.

Another friend runs an NSX as his daily,

A truly rare car - I base that only on the fact that I've seen maybe 2 on the public road moving under their own power in 20+ years of driving.. fair play for running one as a daily! It'll probably be in much better nick than all the ones that are sat, slowly rotting, in 'climate controlled storage' as part of an investment scheme.

A mate of mine had one, then replaced it and had a string of pretty tasty cars since. He still wishes he'd kept it.

I was seriously tempted to treat myself to a 3D printer for Christmas as there are loads of random bits and pieces I'd like to print out.

The last thing I need is another project / rabbit hole of hours of tweaking and fettling to dive into, however, so maybe I'll give it a miss for now...  ;D

The result?  Its noticeably worse ;D

Perfect! Objective achieved  ;D

I added a Y tensioner .. and now the bearing clicks. ;D

Printed this last night, though I haven't inspected it yet (it's still welded to the bed - I do not have any bed adhesion problems .. in fact, half the time I struggle to get the PLA off it! ;D):

It's an exhaust header flange with snap fitting to mate to the snap-together exhaust manifold template sections

I think it's going to melt.  ;)

I wouldn't mind one as a hearse for my final journey 🙂

I'd ruddy well want mine to be in a car with the right wheels connected to the engine. All those rear wheels and still FWD. ::)

In anyone is into greasy stringy chicken nobody does it better than KFC.
Agreed  :y
I tried KFC a couple of times  :( it was fowl foul

Last time I went there they didn't even get my order right despite taking about 45 minutes to think about it.

Still, at least it didn't result in me spending the evening on the potty. :-X

Does anyone else think TB's 'potty problems' are related to a less than healthy diet.
30mins ago, I was sat on the potty...

...Mrs TB came up with a cuppa, and a slice of chocolate log cake.


So I have had a Yule Tide Log which having a Yule Tide Log.

Should have had a Ken fukeee. You'd not have had time to breathe let alone tea and cake. ;D

Saw one of these on the M25 today:



Occupies about the opposite end of the automotive spectrum from anything I'd want to find myself driving, but a rare sight nonetheless.

The Channel would be a start :-X

Good point   ;D me & the pooch jogged around the hill early this morning  & both carriers  are still firmly tied up in harbor

Not a lot of point in even putting diesel in them seeing as there's nothing to fly off them, nor anything to protect them!  ::)

An F35 took off from one of them a couple of weeks back and flew straight over our office. Stealthy it may be in radar terms, but, acoustically, it announced itself pretty effectively. :o

I see you've been to the Gatwick one as well...  ;D

Whomever thought that a drive through KFC was a good idea should be forced to pay the losses...

Nope quite the opposite. They managed this level of incompetence in the middle of nowhere in the fens - on the Ely bypass, IIRC. ::)
