    The first car they buy is an Austin A55 Mark II. A two-tone grey and white Magnette is stacked in the yard and first appears at 45 seconds onwards. It can be seen again left of screen at 4.55 onwards when they leave with their Cambridge.

    Does Anyone Know What This Means ?

    The spanner and screwdriver do look a little ominous though.

    Does Anyone Know What This Means ?

    It's a Mercedes W169 A-Class. Not mine but a car that someone I know is thinking of buying and this is one of the vendor's photos. A spanner and a screwdriver and two messages at the bottom. The one on the left can't be read in the photo and the one on the right reads "Display off". I've no...

    Spotted In The Scrapyard.

    This is the last one. In the centre is a Standard Vanguard which is on a 1964 "B" plate yet production had finished the year before. They were apparently popular cars with the MOD, particularly the RAF, so this one may have done a few years with the Colours before being de-mobbed and acquiring...

    You could be right about the Cortina although I'd still say that the car behind it is a Hunter or derivative. The rooflines and door profiles are very similar on both cars and follow the square, clean-cut lines of that period. The car behind the FC Victor with its rear raised is definitely an...

    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    Errr..... maybe they should just refer to what has been extensively reported in the media and take note of what their own Shadow Chancellor has already said: Labour and Tories pledge more borrowing "Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell says he wants to transfer power and money out of the...

    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    But you're not though. Nobody from Labour, on the Six O'clock News, in their manifesto or anywhere else, has claimed that "public spending will be funded by taxing the top 5% of earners". Whilst Labour are seeking to increase tax revenues from this group, the willingness of both parties to...

    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    No it won't and they haven't said that it will. We already know that Labour plans to increase tax for higher earners. And regardless of funds raised from taxation, we also know that they are committed to large-scale public borrowing to help pay for their plans. And so are the Conservatives...

    Spotted In The Scrapyard.

    I haven't seen anything interesting for quite a while but I have come across some photos on the internet of how things looked nearly 40 years ago. They were taken in Harborne, Birmingham around 1980 and so obviously the cars are totally different and the body rot is very visible in a way that it...

    ????? I've no idea and I've never heard of such. If this does actually happen then it sounds like they're clamping down on shoplifting.

    Any smokers on here

    But it isn't that simple. For many, vaping isn't like nicotine chewing gum or patches that are used to help someone to quit and are then no longer needed. A great many people are using vaping as an indefinite substitute for smoking and are doing it far more frequently than they smoked because...

    No I'm not - because he hasn't said that. Like Johnson, he's pledging huge scale borrowing to pay for the majority of his spending promises. No I don't. See post #13350. Does anyone think that ?? I don't know but I haven't heard him say as much. Maybe you could champion egalitarian tax...
