Hey. Just a quick one to any of the Jalops that helped last week with my decision on which classic racing livery to go with for my Le Mans scooter for next year. Consensus was Porsche "Pink Pig" 917 and that's what it's being painted. Before the special order transfers get here, I'm a little concerned I've painted the…
So I've bought a knock-off 50cc go-ped to get around Le Mans next year. Jalop input required:
I've just realised that I really lust after a BMW M1
Metro 6R4 for sale in Uk. Here's the kicker though, no chassis number, no papers, £50k ($75k)
Here's the Rover BRM for #TurbineTuesday
Working in the ICAO (UN) building in Montreal this week. Just been buzzed by two FA-18s at 1,000ft flying in formation.
So opponauts. I'm headed to Montreal for a fortnight on my own, a long way from home in the UK, and I need your help.

NO SARCASM - seriously.
In the spirit of Gawker crossposts, can we have this please?
A co-worker has just bought the complete F1 driver encyclopedia. I asked if I could see the page about Taki Inoue. Photo shows his "results" grid.
Ladies and Germans. Jalopnik comments now work with IE and I no longer need to keep my iPad around just so I can comment on stuff. Congrats to the Gawker IT guys and whomever kicked them into fixing it.
Anyone know any Solidworks? My chassis goes from full and proper to pretzel every time I mesh the damn thing so I can run it. I'm new to this and really struggling.
You outside the UK may not know but we've got a politician over here we actually like (just the one). He's Boris Johnson, mayor of London and he's a bit of a legend. He manages to be completely bird-brained, full of common sense and generally get everything right all with a veneer of bumbling idiocy that makes his…
