    Saw a fine example today of a Peugeot 505 Familiale.

    In surprisingly original condition, down to the plastic wheel covers.

    Paint looked a bit tired, but no rust or dents.

    It was parked near a building site, with the load area full of building materials.

    I can't imagine who would have a genuine car like that and use it for building supplies....

    I saw on the news today that there has been a significant increase in the number of thefts in NCP car parks recently, that's just wrong on so many levels.

    Fiat Uno was my first ever car.

    Got it a nice red and black racing style steering wheel cover from Halfords and tried to kid myself it looked like a Golf GTI.

    It didn't.

    Ah bless
