#390136 Close To Disaster? Confessions!

Posted by Philf1 on 25 July 2014 - 09:37 PM

Father forgive me I have sinned twice and in my defence I was a lot younger haha.

First set off in my MG metro to knebworth for a queen concert with my mate. After a few miles oil starts spilling out onto the windscreen so pulled over. I'd forgot to replace the filler cap after filling oil up day before. Rest of journey done with a cloth stuck in top lucky it didn't catch onto the engine.

Second in the MGB GT on a Sunday morning on the way to a friends daughters christening, we are to be god parents, driving down road when near side rear wheel comes off and overtakes car like a bouncing bomb. Car falls onto axle and grinds to a halt wheel bounces down road into a bus shelter. Lucky it was Sunday and no buses or someone would probably have been killed.

Funny now looking back but at the time it was pretty scary.

#390117 Non Ford Owners Opinions Of Fiesta St's

Posted by Philf1 on 25 July 2014 - 09:16 PM

At the end of the day I'm happy with mine so I don't care what the smug German car owners think. Most if them are company cars anyway and are purely a prestige symbol.

Better to be individual and not a keep up with the jones type

Don't think we have any of those signs around here.

 

Clive a guy on our street painted a white line at the end of his drive, surprisingly he's now known as "white line man" original eh? Trouble is it's !Removed! everyone off because he parks on it rather than his drive now. Selfish b*******d! It is coming to something though when you have to pay to park outside your own house and then can't even do that like we don't pay enough to drive we now can't afford to stop.

Guys just remember that there are about 20 miles of average speed 50mph road works south of Sheffield so make sure you leave a little extra for that.
