    That Australian bloke,that was always f.ckin' about with dangerous animals thought a pic with a stingray would help him pull too! Big spiky stingy thing in the chest changed his mind! (Not sure if it was a Corvette Stingray or not!)

    Always wanted one mate but I just could never justify it. The insurance in 1995 was 2000 a year God knows what it is now. They drop off in price in the first three years so you don't fork out so much but still its a useless car really. The original fanny rats tool. No good for a family man with kids and you cant get much sand cement and brick in it lol. If you are sports car minded though and can sport a few quid, they have to be the best bang per quid out there. They call that fooker the Ferrari Killer

    Big money here now a Lotus in good nick John. TR3....4....and 6 as well, Up to forty grand in show condition

    If you wanted I can track you down a California Corvette here and put it on a boat. Not one spot of rust on these Calif cars. You would need your own private petrol tanker following you though. Plus a Yank minded mechanic. Probably not worth it on second thoughts. There are some great deals here in Corvettes. Be a left hooker though

    Just thought of that Tony, when the time of the walking dead ever comes about, looking for a tanker for fuel.

    I really don't get it with sports cars or so called muscle cars. To me they're just metal (or fibre glass) boxes to get from 'a' to 'b'. I def don't get these fukkers that waste their lives washing and bulling them up, my pet hate.

    I really don't get guys in their 50's like a few colleagues where I worked who got promoted into the serious wedge range. The three of them bought themselves little sports cars. I couldn't even get into one of them it was so low.

    At the opposite end you get the boy racers. I remember two of the bragging about what they had, e.g. 1.2 ltr this, 1,6, ltr that. I pointed out I had a bigger bottle of milk in the fridge.

    I'll stick with my good old 17yr old puggy estate, I would never buy a new car and I certainly couldn't justify it, only did 2702mls between the last two MOT's. My mate reckons he did about 600 of those.

    Got 2 Land Rovers,both falling to bits,and a couple of bikes.Never had a car capable of doing 100 mph,and never had the desire.As you say Don,it's just a box on wheels to get from A-B,and could never understand the little sports cars,if you cant get 6 of yer mates in it to go on the piss,it aint worth having!

    A lot of people get it though Don. Some people its their hobby. Some its their business. Some its there very LIFE. I know a bloke here, met him once hes got a collection of 42 Ferrari's. People collect them. Trade them, make a living out of them. Join Car clubs. Swap ideas and info. They are into it big time. I just did a foundation on a blokes house and then his driveway, he is the President of the Corvette Club of America. Guy by the name of Mike Vietro. Also known as Corvette Mike. Took his passion for cars and ran with it.

    The blokes that can walk in a dealership and make a cheque out for ninety to a hundred and ninety grand for a car, ain't struggling by any means....and don't care about money. Its no problem for them they just do it. I got a mate who pushes dirt for a living, he was taking in a couple of hundred grand a month out of bulldozers. He likes 4 wheel drive all terrain vehicles and is into Desert Racing. At his height him and his brothers/mates probably had half a million in a Desert racing set up. Google the Baja 500. Or the Baja 1000. Its big biz.

    I just went with Mike Vietro about a year ago to view and appraise a Classic 1964 Corvette some body was going to put up for sale for a couple of hundred grand. They needed his expert advice. Turned out it was "only worth" a hundred and fifty. "Oh dear" said the bloke. "Maybe I will just keep it. Wait for an upswing in the market."

    Now it ain't my cup of tea. I would never buy a new car. I am a bit of a shylock. I have to get a deal before I let the ackers go....but not everybody is like me. What makes no sense to us makes perfect sense to them. In fact it is their LIFE

    Re: If you have a liitle dick like me....

    Biggest mistake I made was a 75 BMW 530 i in 1982 and a 98 Jaguar xj8.in 2003 After 50 000 mile of local non Jag mechanics the Jag was dead faulty. In the end I sold it broke down for 1800 bucks just to get rid of it. It was beautiful as well. Black on black leather. Stunning car but it 500 dollared me to death. It had 106 000 miles on it when I told the bloke he needed to have it towed. "I think I will be alright," he said. He opted to drive it and fooked the engine up on the free way. Daft kunnt.

    Had a VW Beetle at Abingdon Dave used to get 8 lads in it to go down town for a wet, it spluttered and farted with smoke belching out of something at the back, totally reliable, I usd to dare it to break down. Got a vauxhall Astra, had it 7 years, never any problems, anything makes me move seats in the pub is if some prick starts talking about his 'drop head cam shaft dingleberger' not a f***in clue what the f**k they are talking about. Turn ignition key car starts = happy, turn ignition key car does not start = sad, as Mr McCawber may have said

    Yep bugger unreliable cars. I am same as Wig. I just want to pump the smelly stuff in the hole on the side and turn the key and travel..... Other than sussing the water and oil I never lift the bonnet. I changed a starter motor once....with a lump hammer and bolster chisel...

    I had a 71 saffron yellow Triumph TR6. Nice looking but had all the sophistication of a farm tractor. Plus I needed me own personal tow truck following me. Tell you what though Dave for all their mechanical detractions that Triumph 2000, Vitesse and Stag were lovely lookin' motors.
