#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?

Further to my question on what Clive would do if he was given an Astra van for work, I came across this.


A small box trailer behind it and you'd be sorted  :)



#385642 How Can Washing A Car Be So Hard?!

Don't wash your car on warm, sunny days. The water dries before you get a chance to chamois/microfibre it off right  ;)

#383243 Hire Car - Not A Focus!

Posted by Turvey on 07 July 2014 - 07:56 PM

In our local gardai station theres a fiesta & focus estate, unmarked cars are usually mondeos.

Clive quick question. ..our area would be semi rural, why estate cars? I can undetstand for carrying dogs but surely on back roads estates would be nightmare, I drove my dad's Nissan primara estate thing was like a bus



Estates are generally used to allow for carriage of more kit in the back.
Personal kit bags plus road cones, signs and lights take up a lot of space.
Also estates tend to have tougher suspension to compensate for heavy loads which is useful.

And being Ireland, they can throw more drunks in the back to take them home!!!  ;)  :D  :D  :D

#381495 Cat D Focus R S On Ebay

Posted by Turvey on 02 July 2014 - 08:59 PM

Thought this might interest someone...




Two things stuck out about this ad(nothing actually about the car though) 


1. Why do people insist on taking pictures with some fancy automatically applied photoshop type effect on it? Makes it look like they've got something to hide.


2. The person selling this car has covered up the rear number plate BUT has left the front one clear!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Cheers mate  :)


I actually cheated and originally came across this website which used to have an ambigram generator http://www.wowtattoos.com/.  This seems to be off-line so I've found this one to play around with  http://www.flipscript.com/ambigram-generator.aspx

The unlucky fella will be done for poaching next. ;)




I'm sure you'll know this pointless fact but he wouldn't be legally be able to take the deer home and eat it, however any car following(or anyone else for that matter) would be able to  :)
