#417274 What Do We All Work At

Posted by Turvey on 07 October 2014 - 09:03 PM

hgv class one driver.not seen many on here  :blink:


Another one here although I haven't actually driven a 'bendy' truck in 18 years! 


I work for our local authority(council) mainly driving a hook-lift lorry servicing our local amenity sites, taking the full skips to the waste transfer station and taking containers full of baled waste to the shipping company for shipping up to Shetland to let them burn it! 


Here's my normal daily driver...






And the best thing about HGV driving up here?  ;)  :)

#412658 I've Got 'guide Me Home' Lights!!!

Posted by Turvey on 23 September 2014 - 09:30 PM

Had the car for 18 months and I only discovered it(by accident) tonight!  :oops:


Very handy as we've just shifted into rented accomodation with off-road parking at the back of the house where no street lights shine. 


Just saying  :)  :)  :)

#401004 Vectra For Sale On Ebay!!!

Posted by Turvey on 23 August 2014 - 04:45 PM

Well, that's embarrassing! :unsure: 


The original picture was of a boy and a dog sitting on a sofa but the seller has obviously noticed his mistake and changed it :rolleyes: 


Mind you, he's also noticed his mistake and is selling the Vectra! Bu-dum tish!   :)

Fishing rods? What kind of fish? Tiddlers? :)

#398958 Stubby Aerial?

Well I am anyway! Not sure what you're thinking about :)

#398880 Stubby Aerial?

Posted by Turvey on 18 August 2014 - 10:36 AM


Ah brilliant, is it quite a bit shorter than the originals? I'm on a tight budget at the moment anyway, so it's definitely a good price. I don't want to leave the aerial bit exposed to the elements but I just can't have the standard aerial on there. Plus also the original is a bit broken up around the base too, so it needs replacing.



Don't know what the original one measures as there wasn't one on the car when we got it but this one is 11 inches long. Flexible enough too so you can bend it under the roofbox etc  ;)

Anyone who pays £250 to use that as a wedding car needs their head examined............ in my opinion :)

#396284 My New Mobius Dashcam

Posted by Turvey on 10 August 2014 - 10:44 PM

Going to get me one of these shortly, especially after an incident on Friday. Approaching a slight right hand bend and could see a cyclist coming the other way with a car behind him. The car driver only started to overtake him didn't he? I saw that it was going to be a close thing so foot off throttle and covered brake, applied brake when I figured out he wasn't going to get in front of cyclist safely. He 'just' managed to get in without causing a collision! 


How he didn't see me coming I don't know. I was driving a 2.5 metre tall BRIGHT ORANGE Renault truck at the time!!! A quick blast on the airhorns made sure he knew I was there  :)


So a quick question about the Mobius, I have read all/most of the 18 pages so might have missed it, but is there a button to press to save a segment of recording?
