    I got on this train,

    And then I drove home in a December 2003, turbocharged, six speed manual motor car with plastic front wings and tailgate, aluminium doors and a spectacularly nice dash.

    Just to clarify, this is not me being clever with fill in flash, this is what happens when you open a door.

    And the clock is not photoshopped, it really does light up in lilac.

  13. I like it well worth a fiver, but I'm a bit concerned about the pies, Chicken Balti with a use by date of 10th of November "Perfect for Santa", that 'ill teach him, I asked for NOS not Klokker panels ;)
     
  14. Only a bit concerned?

  17. Your German cars in close proximity may cause it to go permanently into reverse;) Park it beside the Jag it'll feel safer.
