    Sean, was it you that posted up a picture of the back of a hire car with words stuck in the window that went something like 'Hire cars are quicker' or 'Drive it like you hired it'?

    Remember seeing the picture on here a while back and would love to find it again as it was hilarious!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?
