This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

« Go Back

In 1989 desperate for some cheap wheels for a couple of weeks, I bought a grey 76 Ford Capri ghia for £40 of a bloke I was fixing windows with at the time. No mot, no tax completely uninsured with a broken locked boot. I had it for a couple of weeks and curiosity got better of me and I got in the boot through the ripping through the back seats and amongst some dirty clothes found 10 quality hard core porn films which was way before they were easy to get, sold then on the building site I was working on for a fiver each and subsequently left the car next to travellers site as i no longer needed it. It duly disappeared, never to be seen again.
It got me around for a month with a tenner profit!
although looking back now not proud, blah blah, highly dangerous, blah blah, irresponsible blah blah...

Happy memories
In 1997 I bought an old 2l Capri off a bloke. Funny thinks I, the registration papers haven't got his name on them, it has some other fella's. Anyhoo I drove it like a mad bastard round all the the Midland B roads for a few months since it had a MOT and a Tax disk.
One evening I was well pissed off when a speed camera gave me a big flash. It took all of 2 miles for me to remember the ticket wouldn't be coming to my house!
