A mate who was a real rally driver - had a mini clubman and raced it around the narrow country roads at night in organised rallies said once "haha I suppose those are Hella spots" and they were!! cost me 5 quid each.

I got towed once when it wouldn't start by the skipper of the boat I sailed, he was a salesman and his driving was either stop or full throttle, hairiest twenty minutes I've ever done - very very hard to stay in behind him!


Hooters? Headlights?? We are still talking about your car, right?

Whatever it was it was probably not in the "jelly mould" style. :wink:

Fritz, you've come in late! it was a Noble made by Bristol cars I think who in turn were made by the same factory as the Beaufort bomber - seemed like a bit of a trend started by the Messchersmidt three wheeler which I'd have preferred although you couldn't get up to any hanky panky in a Mess whereas you could in the Noble (and ahem, I did manage to)

And the appendages were twin horns.

Ian, my second car was a Ford Ecort, boring as whatsit, however my fifth car was an escort XR3 which was quite a bit of fun although I hardly drove it, Janice used it as a pram, we had three kids by then.

My first car was a mini van. Had previously been owned by Kodak so it was bright Kodak yellow. I polished the thing once too often and the "Kodak" sign along the side started to show through.

Fourth car was another mini - a Moke this time, also yellow as it turned out. That was a lot of fun, especially since someone had put proper racing style bucket seats in it, along with tiny flared guards, Sunraysia mags and wide tyres. There was never chance of hanky panky in a moke. Not that it mattered - married by that stage. Only sold it because Marian was expecting our first boy and there was no back seat (or anything else!) to strap a baby chair onto.

.. looking back on this string .. I forgot to tell you who won the prize for the best caption. I was the sole judge and please note that the judge's decision was final etc.
The winner was (drumroll) me!

... and I drank the Dan Murphy $2.99 motor mower fuel some time ago but my lips are still numb!
