What's made you smile today?

VW marketed a harlequin Polo in the nineties. I think there were five different colours involved. They built the cars as normal, single-colour, then off the production line, swapped panels around. Apparently no two the same.
I wouldnt know about that, I never saw one. Ha ha.
 
Some say every time he walks into the garage he now feels compelled to offer himself 29% Apr on new Panda with only a 50% deposit...
99 of 100 people say they think he may be up to 1% better off after doing this I say he should wash in hyaluronic acid...... which as I understand it is basically water. You know you deserve it.
 
After two months of sleeping on the living room sofa because my ankle decided to be a dick and break in the middle of a roller skating race, I finally was able to get my sorry butt upstairs and sleep in a real bed. Because Mrs.Cheest has a tendency to thrash about in her sleep and could not rule out an accidental kick to my ankle, I opted for the guest bedroom.
So nice to sleep with no cast, no elevation pillow, and to be able to spread out. Buster dog even came into the room and snoozed on the floor by the bed for a while. He appointed himself as my casual guardian.

Great stuff. Hows Mrs Cheest doing.
 
She is doing well. She goes in for the initial sit down with the radiologist on Thursday and we go from there. She said a weight lifted off her shoulders when she got her score.
Great to hear. My fingers crossed.

Result!

My EVO has decided to flutter a little. I should probably try and find out what it is before something falls off :)
Indeed!

That’s what I was worried about. Whizzing up one of the many steep hills in Hastings and seeing the whole exhaust on the road behind me (and the Panda sounding like a spitfire plane).

Before I started on my mechanic journey last year, this happened to me twice in different cars, in an almost identical place, within twelve months. I can imagine the big speed bump near my house saw off both exhausts.

I paid circa £600 for those two exhausts, and both of those cars are now in the bin! This is a contributing factor to my journey. I'd prefer not to be hearing that loud scraping clanking of the exhaust on the floor lol, So i'd better have a look... :)

I guess the comparison of £600 to £3.99 is what's led me to this forum.

Liking the spitfire comparison!

My dad always said preventative rather than reactive and I follow that belief too, so definitely worth looking at the EVO. Will probably cost more in the long run if left.

The roads round here are pretty poor to say the least, the main road more like a crazy golf course. In Hastings we drive not only on the left hand side of the road, but also on what’s left of the road.

Mind you, always an excuse for a bit of fun at the councils expense 🤣.
Hastings, not only the birthplace of television …..

LOL.

I'm not sure I can match that for humour, unless you like sausage dogs in old potholes, in which case this might be interesting :)

Lol. That’s brilliant. Our local favourite is this ….Produced yearly. Always a sellout.
My road is March 24’s picture 🤣

 
I try to continue a rumour that BMW unveiled the X6 on April 1st but people wanted it so BMW execs said ,well ,might as well give them what they want .

Whoever thought an SUV coupe was a good idea ?
In VW harlequin news ,some other markets got Golf harlequins too ,never seen one but did see the Polos in period .

In more harlequin news ,I have recently painted one of my eBay win Escort RS2000s in harlequin stylee ,managed to get 14 colours on a 3 inch car ,different colour on every panel ,including some of the FIAT Ariana Verde that I kept after Minty the Seicento was sent for scrap .
I sprayed some into a beaker and picked it up with a tiny paintbrush while it was still liquid .

That pic took forever to upload due to my pathetically slow internet .
You can see 10 colours here ,the FIAT green around the orange bonnet .
They say the camera never lies ,the paint on this looks way better using eyes .
The window piece also fits rather poorly too .
