  1. Right let’s give this a go 1. MK 2 Escort in beige with dog tooth seats 13L I think 2. MG Midget which I built with the old man, steel cranked 1380 engine, full fibreglass front end it was a replica of the “Safety Fast” race car, crashed into a bus stop after running out of talent, rebuilt again would love to get that back but can’t find it 3. Rover SDI Vitesse Moonraker Blue if I remember correctly with velour interior 4. 309 GTI I actually backed this into the Vitesse and damaged both 5. 205 GTI 1.6 6. 205 GTI 1.9 7. BMW 325 with full Hartage conversion brilliant car, mate put it through a fence then into the side of a house so that was the end of that 8. Holden 202 (I think) station wagon in Australia bought in Sydney drove up the East Coast to Cape Tribulation then back down to Townsville across, then up to Darwin, back down the centre to Adelaide and Canberra (the worlds most boring city) across the Nullarbor Plain to Perth then up the West Coast to Kimberley then back to Perth where I sold it for 500 AUD more than I bought it for. Water pump went about 50k from Ayers Rock we had water but run out about 10k out so we just carried on it got so hot the paint on the bonnet started bubbling. Thought it was buggered found a local mechanic and he was like it will be fine pick it up in the morning and it was. Amazing car 3 speed column change. 9. Back to the UK a other 205 GTI 1.6 10. First flat purchase so a £350 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 GL possibly, with a dent up the arse bought at auction 11. 1000mile Renault 1.9 16v the single most unreliable car I have ever owned absolute piece of shit 12. New 106 GTI brilliant car so quick and handled like nothing else. 13. Merc W123 280CE coupe still want another one of them 14. New 2000 S1 Elise funnily enough that had 2 new front clam shells after it twice got backed into at the station also done its head gasket 15. Merc E280 petrol Saloon 16. Merc E350 petrol saloon 17. Merc C220 saloon 18. 1989 300SL it was mint Black with grey leather shouldn’t have sold that 19. C350 Estate sport amazing car I was commuting to Hertfordshire 4 days a week 122Mile round trip never missed a beat and was so comfortable and fast whilst doing 45mpg 20. E63 with performance pack so 550bhp loved it but petrol consumption was a joke and wife hated it 21. BMW 330d it was just a car nothing else 22. 1981 Dry Sump Esprit 23. BMW 335i grand coupe 24. Lotus Elan M100 oh and a bundle of Merc Vito vans not sure how many still have a few but they’re owned by the company so don’t really count and I had an Audi at some point but it was so boring I can’t even remember what model it was but it was definitely red probs missed a few
  2. Doesnt apply to me to be honest but I don’t think that is helping keeping people at home
  3. Yes me to please ta
  4. The way I understand it is if you’re self employed you can work and claim your 2.5k a Month from the Gov, I might be wrong on that but that is my understanding
  5. Hi David it is currently with @Sparky then going to @JayTwo so if you PM Jay then it can come to you next as I say all I ask is to get it back at some point, would like it to do the rounds, enjoy
  6. Nice, whoever parked the Fiat appears to have missed the drive by quite some margin
  7. Nice one Colin might order that
  8. @C8RKH stick him on the list then and ask @JayTwo to send on when he is done, if he liked that then he will love this
  9. Jay no it didn’t take off but you’re more than welcome to it, I sent it via UPS to @Sparky on Wed for £7.95 they picked it up from my doorstep and delivered to him by 11am Thursday. Don’t confuse this with Lego of old it’s pretty complicated and enjoyable. PM Sparkles with your address I am sure once he has done it he will be happy to send on, warning the strip down is as taxing as the construction as you need to get all the right parts in the right bags. All I ask is for it back at some point and the offer is there to anyone who fancies it. I found it really relaxing took about two and half weeks doing a bit every day 01BBF30E-4BAF-44AD-8563-A3EA3215977C.MOV
  10. Totally agree @Bibsif everyone on TLF put in £10 in the next 24hrs how much would it be? All sign it from TLF, I haven’t donated yet but will maybe new thread and everyone put from The Lotus Forums
  11. This is and I am not making it up, the guy round here house who owns a few care homes! Thats not flats it is one house!! Bit disappointing if we are funding his care homes, maybe he could add to his considerable car collection

    The Donald.

    He is such a complete and utter twunt-ox!! 1st May, really that's gonna work and what a completely appropriate time to cut the WHO funding!

    Did they all stay in for 3 months?
  14. Got a belated 50th present today, so chuffed
  15. @PhilW I don’t think I have ever been annoyed about anything on TLF but this has wound me up a bit! So we are looking after my 90 year old mother in law, we are purposely only going shopping once a week for us (one of us) and every two weeks for the MIL so that as you can imagine is a lot, so we combined it.
  16. Phil two trollies as had to do the mother in laws shopping at the same time
  17. So I went with my wife to Tesco’s today as we need to buy the MIL’s stuff as well, they have arrows on the floor so you walk that way, not to difficult really, lines on the floor so you can keep the 2m I reckon 60% of people got it the other 40% not a chance! I was going to get some bacon and a women came the wrong way down then leaned in front of me and I am talking centimetres and took the last dry cured bacon, tutted and fucked off. Same women at the beer section down the same to my wife. I just watched on the news a policeman pulling someone over with a canoe on the roof of their car, he stuck it in the APNR and they had driven 80 miles to go canoeing FFS!
  18. No we use one based in the Amazon Rain Forest, we were the first to discover them, they are brilliant at making canoes which I thought was important! I am thinking in these times of trouble setting up a Lego charity as the reaction to this thread has been overwhelming
  19. To be honest our complaints dept has never been so quiet!
  20. That’s good I have been on duty for 96 hours so far and not heard a thing
  21. That’s an iPhone 7 I think is that a bit dated then? I have zero interest in phones only Lego now
  22. I am at this point at the moment, phone gives you some idea of the scale of this thing
  23. So all on Sparkles recommendation I bought the Lego Bugatti Chiron, haven’t done Lego for years I have been doing it off and on for about a week it is a serious bit of kit, I am currently not even finished the 2nd box of 5 boxes. It has a working V16, 8 speed gearbox and full four wheel drive. I haven’t even finished the first 357 Page manual. you need to concentrate as I found when I thought I had completed the engine top end and had one thing in the wrong place so had to carry out a bit of reverse engineering, I managed it and all without calling @CHANGES . so how is this for a plan, once finished and I have looked at it for a while I am going to Strip down and post up to Sparkles (this will now be even more complicated as I won’t remember how to break it down into the original bags of bits). So this got me thinking why not then get aforementioned Sparkles to send on to the next person, etc, etc with each person covering the postage onwards. eventually I would like it back but let’s see how far it can go, I only ask please try not to lose any bits and let’s say max of a two weekish build and honestly this is not your average Lego you had back in the day it is really an amazing bit of kit so the list 1. @Sparky
