  1. Not a 'peoples' reaction', rather a piece of roadside furniture's reaction. Driving along today when suddenly a warning sign lights up its flashing amber lights and displays the message "Overheight Vehicle - Turn Back". As I was the only vehicle on that stretch of road at the time, it was a bit of a worry - I was half-expecting to disappear down a rabbit burrow any second, .
  2. This one has been arrested several times and doesn't even get interviewed before being 'released without charge' to go straight back and (in her words) "unleash hell" on drivers, . Considering her husband's position (from which he has just resigned as it happens) you have to wonder if old 'Sadsac' had any influence on her multiple releases, .

    I'd like to know which of them is going to admit to a bit of low-flying and now has the tip of a pyramid rammed up his engine intake?
  4. @ChillidoggyI think you've just found me a new top-of-the-list contender. The perfect balance of understated elegance and easy accessibility and as for the colour scheme - . As a bonus, it'll be no problem locating it in a car-park - just follow the trail , .
  5. @Bibs I did have this a few years back as our dog-mobile Maybe I should have held onto it, or would it being the MG version rule it out as being too sporty?
  6. Now that I'm entitled to draw my State Pension, I think that I really need to give my image a compatible makeover. The flashy sportscar is all well and good for the young, rakish, lad about town but I'm not sure how it sits with my newly-acquired OAP status, . Based on observations of some of my local contemporaries, I've narrowed down the possible replacements for the Evora to a shortlist of 3. Decision, decisions, decisions. I suppose at the end of the day, the final choice will be based on its availability in the obligatory hearing-aid beige colour scheme inside and out, and of course the ability of its rear parcel shelf to accommodate the required 'badges of office' identifying my man of leisure position, i.e. the Panama hat, box of paper tissues, and a couple of scatter cushions, . If it were your choice, which of these 3 beauties would you go for?
  7. Deferred. I'm still going to be working for a bit yet and I'm already getting an RAF pension, with a further personal plan kicking in next week so I'll leave the State one until I need some extra petrol money, . Getting the thread back 'on topic', I was down in a nearby retail park today and attracted the attention of a group of car-culture youths who were really interested in hearing all about the Evora. While they were giving it a good look-over, a shopper strolled past and made some comment along the lines of "Why would you want to run around in something like that?", , before jumping into their Nissan Puke, .
  8. Oi! I qualify for my State Pension, sorry, pocket money a week today and I certainly don't regard myself as ancient, well not yet anyway, .
  9. @ChrisJ Can't really 'cone-done' that sort of action, . After all, we (the taxpayer) paid for that vital piece of traffic management equipment which could have been damaged by her skull, .
  10. I don't know what has made me more unhappy, the failure of the side repeater light as 'reported' a couple of posts above or, having spent £60 on a replacement (and let's not forget another £3 or so for the 'Evora' stickers as the new one only has a blank space), that when I went to fit it this morning I discover that the old unit is functioning perfectly again, . It would appear that, in common with the front sidelights, the LEDs in these units can also self-heal, . Since I've got the arch-liner out already, I might as well crack on and install the new light anyway. Maybe I should have ordered two as the 'shock' to the system of the the new one will undoubtedly cause the one on the other side to fail now.
  11. This explains part of the problem.................
  12. Following on from my response in this thread yesterday to the rumoured Christmas tree shortage, it just so happens that my return load each night will be for a certain Irish-based nationwide toy retailer. Happy to be doing my bit towards mitigating these potential domestic crises, .
  13. Starting in about 4 weeks time, 5 nights each week for the following 8 weeks or so, I'll be trucking a trailer-load of trees (freshly cut in the Scottish Highlands) down to our satellite depot in Stoke-on-Trent for onward shipment to various locations 'darn sarth' - I'll let you know where if you want to beat the queues?
