My Van's a Renault and the family Car is a Ford - Alison reckons both descriptions fit me exactly (apart from the Gay bit) :oops:

I can do you a nice set of flames for the side of that motor, hundred quid to you Robert :wink:

Nik, that L200 really really wants to come here, its begging you to resign it as the dewi-mobile :wink: :wink:

Dodge Ram & a Harley... I can only dream :cry: :cry: What type of Harley btw? If you say a V-Rod, I'll :cry: :cry: :cry: some more then beg to borrow it for a year :P

I feel like the poor relation now with my little espace, maybe I should wrap it in vinyl and disguise it as a sweetie (-)

Could be worse Dewi - at least you got plenty of space for delivering signs ! I've given up changing my cars now, been through 22 in my short life - was averaging about 1 every 6 months but decided that it was costing a fortune in depreciation and somewhere along the line I got boring too (sleep) now I'm holding onto my little vw polo for a bit longer even though its getting me insults for driving a birds car :cry: and is nearly 3 years old too !

Thanks nik... but gotta disagree.. I wanted a big mutha like that.. Not that I seen it fist. My dad did... he fell in love and wanted it.. I was sick.. To be honest ide have loved him to buy it... he deserves something like that... BUT! He thinks too much about his business and said “I think ill buy it another time. And decided to buy the grenadier printer & laminator”.
maybe next year.. but great vehicle :wink:

Oh thanks Nik :wink: - I love the pickup btw ! My cars only just run in after nearly three years since I do most miles in my van anyway.
It is a nice little car though with heated leather seats, trendy alloys, air con etc etc. and it's pretty economical to he said putting on his most practical and boring hat :) and best of all it's paid for too !

Sad tale, sold my beautiful 911 for a Ferrari, wish I'd kept the 911, now drive a Lotus Elise, but now looking for another Ferrari.
Honestly, pics are available to the non believers, as if I care?

I'd love to Dewi if I'm ever around your area I'll pop in, the lotus was better than the Ferrari honestly
£3000 for a cambelt change every 2 years, £1300 for a set of spark plug leads, £1000 for a clutch slave cylinder, it's by far the most expensive car I've ever owned.

We're practically neighbours Outline (hint hint) I just really love the lotus, personal favourite is the S2 Espirit, but then I like the Delorean as well, similar shape... can't decide whether I want to be Bond, Dewi Bond or Dewi McFly! :wink: :wink:

Just for drool value, what colour is the Elise? (really need a drool emoticon :wink: )

Mines new aluminium, Lotus are hopeless on colours so I thought silver with blue leather was best.

Red makes it looks like a noddy car
Blue is nice apart from that awful nautilus colour,
Titanium is just an unwashed new aluminium
Norfolk mustard, well it's absolutely disgusting, even the colour ;)

Aqua is far rarer an in my opinion the best ever it's also the most undesired of all the colour swatches, strange.

I sold my ferrari - couldn't get a roof rack and it towed like a pig, as I slip into middle age a Citroen Synergy does well. Doesn't have the same ring as a microlight does it.

Just a quick lick of paint and some of Dewi's flame graphics would go down a treat. Anybody good at electrics?
