Go faster stripes don't work on a Nissan Rich
A bit of drainpipe on the exhaust might enhance
the Street Cred  {:-{

He has 1.9litres of unleashed fury under his right trainer, Ned...he won't be needing drainpipe exhausts.

I fancy getting a Mercedes F1-W06.  It appears to have a 1.55 metre wide model boat carrying shelf at the very front, and can probably get to the lake a lot quicker than my baby Vauxhall.

Ian,
That's what I mean.
I wonder how the boy racers we have on the seafront here can afford
the insurance.
How can youngsters progress as drivers when the odds are stacked
against them?

I know, It's a rip off poor kids, well they are poor once they go down the owning a motor route.


His Plan is once he passes he going to sale the car, his work have told him they want him to pass in a year. I think he thinks he will be driving for them.


 I'm off out tonight to see Mike and the mechanics. Hope they haven't lost it and can still sing/play.

Lord knows what the insurance would have been on a Superbird... could have been insured on a classic car policy, albeit with mileage restrictions, I guess, but the bloke at Churchill laughed his socks off when he asked what car I wanted to insure, and I told him.


Mind you, I'd have needed a substantial lottery win to have bought one in the first place...  :embarrassed:
