    Default Friday 13th for me!

    Im having a right nightmare with my car at the moment

    it went a bit like this

    1) had to have new EGR valve fitted
    2) had new swirl vlave fitted
    3) had new inlet manifold fitted
    4) got a puncture in a tyre, thanks to a cable clip its not repairable (19")

    and today to top it all off i pulled up at a roundabout and thought whats that smel, where's all that smoke comming from!

    basically it looks like oil is pishing out all over the exhaust so its burning it which smells nice and creates quitre a bit of smoke! it was even coming in the vents at one point.

    so i took it home rang the garage and told them to come and take the bl00dy thing away and sort it!

    meanwhile im now driving round in my chav mobile all blue escort cabriolet, now there's a proper car! no fancy valves to go wrong on that!

    Escort cabriolets are quite rare nowadays so probably not at all chavvy - a good one without nailed-on bodykit might even be a bit cool.........

    Is that any consolation?

    Is that the sort of metallic mid blue that makes it look like a silver cross pram? Ooops! Sorry didn't mean that!

    White looks dreadful because they always look dirty, red looks, well red really. The blue is definitely the best colour - nice looking car.

    You bet - we are all car enthusiasts, not just for the Vec C - and it is (very slightly) relevant.
