  1. Brilliant band, an acquired taste for some people! Loved the new stuff with Billynomates and Amy from Amyl and the sniffers. The wife and I watched the film "The festival" a while back. It's not a film that will educate you , but I said "that's Jason from Sleaford mods!". Who? said the wife, so I get out my phone and search Sleaford mods on Instagram to show her.... First post was Jason doing "baking daddy",put it this way, his Easter one said "it's going to offend you or arouse you" Definitely NSFW or in front of your loved ones!
  2. I'm being pulled towards building a Sand Scorcher(|re-re), my reawakening into air-cooled dubs must be to blame. I have no idea if they are any good, it is the first time I'm considering a car purely as a shelfer.
  3. I love rally cars, years ago I bought this book from waterstones for £20, it's obscene money now, lots of amazing photos. It doesn't mention the Lada though, every day is a school day!
  4. I do like the red interior with that paint colour, nice. Nice pics, I wish I had photos of my old bugs. I'm a bit different, a proper 70's beetle fan, most in the UK only like them if they've got 5 wheel lugs.
  5. What with Covid and other stuff I've not spent much time here. During that time the good lady wife agreed that our Golf GTi cab could be moved on and we could go back to air-cooled. Nice, but not feeling it anymore. Spent a while getting it back on the road & shining again. Sold on and swiftly replaced by this. A 1998 Mexican Beetle, no rust(I am in the UK so that is an issue normally!), modern fuel injection etc. Just enough jobs for me to tinker with it, without having to break out the welder! Now more time in general.
  6. I bought this earlier in the week, it's actually pretty good.
  7. Facebook can be a pain but as others have said use it with your rules and it's a useful platform. Instagram is the way forward for me, interesting hashtags to follow, people generally put up good photos and the comments are unobtrusive.
  8. "Man's best friend" is the term usually used by us Brits, so I guess "A dog is man's best friend" would read slightly better?
  9. I spent many happy hours at Wheels, it's all gone now, just like my local track Cocksmoors Woods. Where was the track by you, Wordsley?
  10. Today I built this, a 2020 S&M Steel Panther. A hand built USA made BMX frame I've ridden BMX since the early 80's and have a collection of bikes from then to present day. As nice as the old ones are they don't ride well when you're an adult carrying a few pounds, admittedly my days of big ballsy jumps are over but I wanted a nice bike that will probably see me out!
  11. My aim was for 3 runners, 4wd buggy, 2wd buggy & a 4wd touring car. I ended up with a TT02B, DN01 & TA03f. They buggies are cars I can run (crash) & not be to bothered about, the TA03 I'm not so sure about abusing it now so will probably look for something else. There are a couple of shelfers which I just like looking at but they have all run at some point.
