Tip for all the Audi gang if you move your seat forward more you could get even closer to my bumper.

Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear always derides Audi drivers as being the most arrogant, rude, inconsiderate and overrated on the roads today. I agree entirely. I detest BMWs as I reckon most drivers ar

I can remember petrol rationing in 1956 . I recall that just after that one petrol station ,maybe ESSO, gave away dinky cars, if you collected enough cards, which were stuck into an album, and exchanged for a great model car.

On exchange, they stamped the back of the book and gave you a new one.Back at the car , I took the cover off the new book and fastened it to the old book having removed the cover from the old one.

We drove to the next ESSO garage and repeated the same move.

I think I got about 8 models before they got wise !!!

My first car was a 1936 Austin Ruby. A couple of us bought two for £25.oo when I was in the Navy up in Lossiemouth, Morayshire. We made one good one out of the two. Went well until you had to go up a steep hill with not much fuel in the tank. Then, because it was a gravity feed fuel system you had to go up in reverse.

Swapped it later for a cine camera to the Chief Pilot of 738 Squadron who then had it painted in the Squadron colours and was used by the pilots to get from the mess to the dispersal area.
