    telly adverts

    Is it just me being a miserable old sod ,but some of the ads,especially the one for the card machine with all the oooooing makes me turn the telly off and miss the rest of what I have been watching,mind you the programmes are such drivel that we don,t bother switching it on most nights
  4. wait till lane assist and self park systems need repair and reset £400 for reset ,around £10000 to purchase the kit and training to use it,
  5. what do nottstalgians think of e scooters? I personally like them but it seems unfair that you can whiz round town on a rented on but not one of your own, perhaps they ought to be made legal and regulated in some way i.e. insurance cover and some sort of i.d.
  6. lots of simpson pics on google,there was also Challands and Ross off highbury road Challoss motor bodies
  7. I had aa Austin Sheerline Hearse years ago ,built by Simpson and Slaters lovely car, I sold it to an american airman who was based at Alconbury ,I wonder if he managed to get it to the USA ,strangely enough his name was Mayhew and the reg number MAU
  8. I was talked into selling both my Rover P4,s and now regret not keeping one,I needed the lucre to rebuild my model T project, I will have another one when I can ,I never rated them until I rebuilt my first one , I think they are the best made classic car of the lot

  14. Sorry to hear that Benjamin ,I just had six weeks off with flu or covid getting over it all now though ,lets hope 2021 is an improvment
  15. well our oven croaked today ,so Lovelace put the joint in her new pressure cooker ,it came out superb,I don,t know whether to fix the oven now, oh and for cooking types she put some stuff in with it including oranges!

      The Pianoman

      Hello Swe.  No, both the rear hubcaps are off because the wheels kept getting taken off for one reason or another. One day I shall do something with that car - or let it go.

  17. I have aquired a new project my rovers are finished and on the road, I fell out with the Armstrong Siddeley, it didn,t do anything for me so I sold it, so the new toy is a 1923/4 model T ford in bits I bought a chassis from a guy in Somerset with a couple of wings ,and by chance my pal Pete imported a 1926 doctors coupe to build a hotrod and sold me the running gear,I just wondered if any petrol heads on here had any bits for sale ?

  20. Ian Barker was one of my big mates,he died about 3 years ago,we always reckoned that our generations late 40 s to the late 60s had the best times of any other s in the history of the world ,never enslaved ,reasonably out of wars and pretty much free not like the kids of today with cameras watching every move and having to have an adult around all the while
