    Nappy-soaking old noddies are thick on the ground where I live, and I see such fuckwittery every day - doodling around at 30mph on 60mph roads during rush-hour getting in everyone's way even though they've got all day to get to Kommodes-R-Us and Adult Diaper Warehouse - and I find it perplexing that since they have VAST experience of driving, and cars have got MUCH easier and safer to drive, they respond by going ever-slower and doing ever-more stupid or selfish things...

    When I rule the World, the old will be retested regularly every 5 years from 65 - 75, 2 years until 80, then annually until 85 when they will be euthenased. They will also be issued with special red number plates that licence them only to use the roads at off-peak times. Any coffin-dodgers found out and about during peak time will be executed at the roadside and left there as a warning to others.
    yeah, and the auld bastards have the gall to flash their lights at you when you safely overtake them... !!

The scrape on the door I could fix by picking up a door from a scrappie. Its the rear flank scrape that makes me so angry. It is pretty deep and you cant get to the back of the panel to fix it due to the double skin. Now every time I look out the door I see the dented panel and I get wound up all over again.

    I hope the old fart chokes on his dentures tonight......
    Whenever I park at the suppermarket or some place, I do what my wife call 'KEEP FIT PARKING'.
    I find the loneliest spot in the carpark, miles away from other cars, and the main entrance, so that I don't get dings from mothers and brats.
    But you can bet when I return some leming minded bastard as parked within inches of my car!!! WHY??? the carpark is EMPTY! Just like their heads.

    true - but generally it's the ignorant lazy cnuts, mothers and screaming brats, the chelsea tractors and auld biddies that park close to the entrance as possible...I don't mind a bit of a walk myself...

    Sorry to hear of that. I feel your pain!

    I had one for a while, a GTV 3.0, lovely motor.

    Only had it about 8 months though, spent most of the time in the garage getting electrics sorted etc. Just not reliable enough. Despite that... i'd have another Alfa tomorrow !

    I've had two Alfas. The first one (from new) was a complete PITA to own. I still managed to keep it for six years and was sad to see it go. So I bought another one (3 years old) - which broke down within a month and cost me over 2.5k to repair!

    Never again!

    ..so, it's a Lexus LS400 then? No style, but smooth and reliable. I keep wanting to go back to a Citroen (C6 maybe?) but.....the Lex just is SOOOO good to be in!
    13 years old, 88888 miles; just run in. MOT man goes around underneath muttering, "Beautiful, beautiful"....honestly!
