It’s our own stupid fault that we can’t have these any more.
I’ve just been to a job interview in Tauranga, a town a few hours south of where I live. One of the supposed attractions of living there is “get away from big city traffic”.
I know the FP already picked this up, but nonetheless....
The wheel bolt. I mean seriously, what’s wrong with studs? They make it so much easier to put and take a wheel.
Clifford is due for his annual inspection this week, so he just got his annual wash. In fairness, he’s only done a thousand miles or so this year so he wasn’t too grubby (apart from the interior, which was a dump).

The heater blower for the Mitsubishi NP Pajero/Montero/Shogun is handed. LHD & RHD ones rotate in the same direction but have reversed blades. So if you fit an incorrect one like I just did, you get lots of noise but damn all blowing action.
Ford SVT Lightning. Wrong hand drive for this part of the world and less than 25 years old, which makes it one of 500 LHD “special interest vehicles” allowed in per year.
Such Engrish. Many spelling. Wow!!!
My connecting flight out of Honolulu is delayed NINE FUCKING HOURS for maintenance. What are they doing, replacing a wing?
I had a day off in Holland last weekend (travelling for work again) so I went to Den Haag and visited the Louwman museum. As “car museums I’d never heard of” go: pretty damn impressive. Warning: lotsa photos inside.
Or in some cases, induction pron. From a race meet a few weeks ago.
