#305193 Be Aware Good People Out There !

There was one I saw today, a letter issued by the apparent Chubb Security company.

It was instructing folk NOT to give a courtesy flash to cars with no lights on in the night. Their reasoning being that the car with no lights on was loaded with gang members, apparently it is a gang initiation whereby they target the first person to flash them.


#302970 Ford Vs Vaux**ll.... (Sorry About The Swearing)

Posted by Stogies on 06 November 2013 - 10:20 PM

I have had 4 Astra Estates (07+), found them to be very compact and timid. The front section used to do my head in, barely any room and both driver and passenger seat were on top of one another. I like my space and I like an arm rest.

Have also spent time in a '07 Vectra, space was the only pro for me. The nail in the coffin was when crossing a busy junction in rush hour, with customers, the steering wheel locked and caused me to mount a kerb. It only had 60thou on the clock and was regularly serviced.

Funnily enough this evening I had a run in with a young lad in a new shape Corsa. When entering the tunnel he flew up my backside, then he would repeatedly drop off and fly up behind me again. After I shown him my break lights, he undertook and decided to do it to a tranny van, only this time revving his engine to show off his loud exhaust.

Needless to say I gave him a w***** hand gesture at the toll.

I've owned my Mondeo 11 month's and last night it finally popped its cherry: image.jpg I was more surprised by how calm and quiet the lad was about it. 'By the way I've thrown up down the side of the car' Usually you hear them grunt, complain and sometimes cry. Unfortunately he left some undesirable chunks inside too. Needless to say I can't wait to find a new job.. :P

Sorry to hear about that bud, I imagine you have a lot of anger and upset building up!

I'm in the Liverpool area, but all the same will keep an eye out. You never know!

Fingers crossed it's spotted.

If I had the funds, I would probably pick up a Skoda Superb or a Ford Galaxy! Boring I know, but I've always liked the look of them.

Unfortunately I've always had your 'everyday type' of car which is probably why I'm into the above. Most of my 5year driving has been spent in between Vauxhalls, a few '07 astra estates and an '08 vectra. Going off that experience, Vauxhall definitely wasn't on my list when shopping for a car.

I bet the couple were somewhat relieved when you passed over the information, given the circs. It's reassuring to know there are still honest people left walking this planet.
