    Blast from the past.. My first Merc

    Going through some old photos and found this.. my first ever Mercedes, bought just after my 18th birthday for the princely sum of £300 (Not including the Brabus replicas). Bottom half was originally grey with black bumpers, which I sprayed myself with some trusty rattle-cans from Halfords. What...

    Vacuum cleaners

    Not a "which model" or anything like that, but does anyone know if it's possible to slow the motor down on one using a dimmer type switch? I have a little Vax Mach8 which is currently being used as part of a dust extraction system in a blast cabinet, though at the moment it's much too powerful...

    Thinking of taking the car for a blast today and wondered if South Wales might be a good choice for some quiet roads to enjoy this morning?

    Blast Off!

    Well, just had our very first outside breakfast of the year. Not rushed, sun shining, radio on in the background and great conversation with my two girls. No better start to a beautiful Sunday. In addition to this we've had a family meeting (60 second chat) and going for our first BBQ of the...

    ABC - Damn and blast! Need NW specialist!

    Hi all, I urgently need a NW England specialist who knows and understands ABC. For a long time now my car has been sinking at the front when left and although it pumps back up again when you start it the length of time it takes before sinking has been gradually decreasing. The car had a...

    R129 top down blast

    Lovely day today up here in the North West. I took the roadster for a blast in the hills with the roof down. What joy, spring is in the air. Famous last words; now we will get 4 feet of snow next week. But the good weather is fun whilst it lasts.

    2400 mile blast across France in E500

    I just got back from my 2400 mile blast across France in the E500. The holiday was fabulous as was the car. The air suspension swallowed up everything I could throw at it (from fully-laden-plus-roof-box motorway blasts to unladen twisty-bashing). The four zone air con came into it's own in...

    Beautiful day, the sun was shining, I was up to date with work, kids were at school, E55 on the drive with almost a full tank of fuel - The (National Limit) roads over the South Downs were calling. Windows down, sunroof open, almost empty roads, 100 miles (without really going anywhere and...

    What a blast!! CLK content.

    I had my 1st proper "spirited" drive in the CLK 320 Cabrio today. Yee ha.. what a hoot it was. A fairly familiar 40 miles of cross country A / B roads plus a wee bit of Motorway which I have "enjoyed" in a few other cars and today, in lovely sunshine, it was a great drive.... and back again...

    Blast from the past

    trivial compared to the miseries recently posted but early this morning heard something I thought was long extinct. Not the sound of a passing Dodo. Nor indeed the call of the Ouzelum Bird. It was the mating cry of the Lesser Spotted Blue ****d Nova Chav, aka The Little Surrey Bustard...
