    Britain's worst driven car? Nominations welcome

    I wouldn't say the Irish were the worst drivers I've known....... But they were definitely the drunkest

    Britain's worst driven car? Nominations welcome

    Having lived in Ireland myself, the first thing I noticed there was that red lights were advisory only

    Marshall Maserati Peterborough

    The f-wittedness of some in senior positions often amazes me

    Britain's worst driven car? Nominations welcome

    Used to be generally regarded as RS Audis. But now so ubiquitous hard to differentiate. Recently I've noticed a serious pretender to the throne - the Ford Ranger. These pointless and vile yank boxes seem to be perpetually driven by colossal bell ends. Pulling out in front of you then crawling...

    The Royale returns

    Wow. Didn’t know about the picnic tables. Respect for ripping off the Allegro Vanden Plas! Although if they were in the doors, not in the back of the front seats, that makes it all ok, and no patent infringements! (Fun fact: I once knew a lad who bought a Allegro VDP purely for those tables. He...

    I think you’ll find they were pewter!

    Shares to watch

    Aston has surely bottomed? Ditto Boeing? Greggs topped out for a while? (These are more questions for the more clued up than recommendations....) Opinions please

    Is it worth it

    Keep the GT and supercharge it. It will go like a modern Ferrari 4 seater. Pocket the change

    Apocalypse Cow: How Meat Killed the Planet

    By the way, if anyone’s interested in this stuff, there’s another doc I saw a while back, called Food Inc, it was on Netflix. About US food industry and GM food. Terrifying. Especially if post Brexit we go in that direction...

    Apocalypse Cow: How Meat Killed the Planet

    Which crops? You don’t need fertiliser for trees. The remaining crops, you would have less of, due to not having to grow animal feed, as demonstrated. And I don’t see why you’d need chemicals to fertilise them?

    Apocalypse Cow: How Meat Killed the Planet

    Sounds nice, but most of that doesn’t bear up to any scrutiny. I was there in the 70s and 80s and there were plenty of plastic bottles appearing. Rola cola anyone? Tetra packs were everywhere ( composites with plastics) Glass pop bottles taken back to shop were a minority of glass bottles...

    Ooooh.....you could spend a lot of money in one place here!

    I’d never buy one myself, but 26k for a 4 year old M4 sounds ludicrously cheap? Holding value worse than a Giulia Q.V.? Don’t know whether to be happy or sad about that...

    Apocalypse Cow: How Meat Killed the Planet

    Though this thread has suffered the expected drift, ( subtexts being, man eat meat, I’m a man, more meat I eat more manly I am, only puffs eat vegetables, etc etc).. I just watched the program in question, it was really good. I’d never heard of monrobot before but he put his case well. Some real...

    Good deal?

    A depressingly good price... For those of us already owning a 4200 or GS. Would have been 30 grand 18 months ago. Also love the interior. It’s Bordeaux, not bright red, which is more of a burgundy type shade, but digital photos always make it look much brighter. I’d be on this quick time if I...

    The battery

    You might be onto something here - I might not have locked it. Car is in a locked garage, and I’m not strict about locking it, it might have been unlocked. Would this cause a drain? Also: I charged the battery on a trickle charger this afternoon, and it only took 3 hours before the charger said...

    The battery

    I know that the battery has a reputation for being ****... However. I last drove the car on 30th Dec. It was a 250 mile journey. Car has been in the garage until today, when I try and start it, and its flat. Surely they arent meant to be that bad, and its new battery time? While on the...

    New GTV and 8C binned

    What I cannot understand with all this, is why not just make the GTV? Surely it’s just a chopped down Giulia which has already had the billions in developement spent on it? Cheap fix, surely? If they haven’t got the money for this they really must be skint...
