Re: Capri half life

If I own mine for as long again as I have already.....94. Better start taking care of myself...

Seriously, I stopped working out anything like that, it`s way too depressing.)

As you seem to think you have the moral high ground here and I am obviously some hard - hearted fascistic bigot with no time for the lame or sick, look what I found in the boot: . . http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj598/stevem56/DSCF1887_zpsz3cus6lp.jpg . .

Re: is it just me

No, I was talking about disabled people in an electrically powered vehicle, where there is no training, no effort and no exertion involved. That seems an insult to people who struggle to complete the course? If you notice, I did say that I thought wheelchairs were fine, it`s just electrically powere...

Re: Valves on last thread

Thanks for the follow up, it`s always good to follow to a conclusion. As Peter says, pics would be interesting. Do you think the rockers could be off a completely different engine, quite a few makes in the 80s used finger type followers (IIRC Lada ones look almost identical)?

Re: Car SOS New Series

watching 3 blokes tearing around in Supercars I could never afford (Even if i wanted one) is of no interest to me. In a nutshell! They`d have to come right back down to earth (i.e. dump the Astons/Lambos) and I don`t think that`ll happen. Shame `cos once it was like TOTP, something you had to watch.

Re: is it just me

You see, this is thing, I had this image of some poor sweat drenched guy with heat-stroke, collapsed by the side of the road in a pool of vomit, looks up to see a smiling woman whizzing past in her wheelchair.... Now it seems even Kenyan athletes would be left for dust.

Re: is it just me

I doubt even the electric wheelchair users themselves will feel a sense of achievement Oh no, it seems they`ve been campaigning to be included.... I can understand someone in a manually propelled chair wanting to take part and would wholeheartedly support them, as that would be a real challenge - a...

is it just me

Reading the local paper before (something I do less and less nowadays, I really don`t like the obsession with vacuous celebrities) and it seems there is to be a 10k run at the end of May. In the interests of inclusion and `differently abled awareness`, electric wheelchairs will be allowed to compete...

Re: Edd China talks of his retirement from Wheeler Dealers

Fair play to him for actually making a stand, I think the thing that differentiates WD from so many other shows is that it does spend time on the actual work involved, not just arsing about with contrived `dramas`. Quite sad to see him go.
