Re: padstow

There is a layby at the top of Padstow above the main car park (not the one by the harbour), its more of an old bit of disused road, its where the locals who don't want to pay car parking go. There is space for about 10-20 cars along it and where you can still squeze in at Mayday.

Re: Giving your bus a human name

Naming your cars with "fluffy# human nic names is just another way of announcing to the world that you have a vagina and are very proud of it !

Re: brazilian splitsceen v german

I know you wanted Experts and I am certainly not one, but as I have a fleetline I can add something. I've heard all the arguments about Brazilian (and I will lump South African Fleetlines in there) and German, Now I expect that if you had a time-machine car loader and you got brand new 67 German mad...

Re: Taking someone to court

I am planning to write a guide on how to go through the process as there are many many pitfalls, and stalling tactics used, with the only intention to discredit you and to get off with illegal consumer practices. I could have done with an idiots guide on how to do this.

Re: ICE Breaker - converting a 1967 split to electric drive

Great post surely the future for so many ways.

Re: Hmm. It's just not the same.....

I had my splitty project parked outside my place overnight and someone had placed a pair of clean (i sniffed em) racy lacy panties on the front seat. Now would that happen in a T5. I think not !
