My Car!

Because of my lack of internet, still, I have had to do bulk-blogging so there's lots more new stuff below.

Even more new stuff below!

Parking Ticket

In the past 10 months I have refrained from ranting about my parking ticket. This was because of the embarrassment that might have resulted if I didn't win. After much arguing and threats (from coventry city council) my persistence has prevailed and when it came to the last hurdle (the one where someone who doesn't benefit from my money gets to judge the case), Coventry Council backed out and I got my money back.

These are the photos I took for evidence at the time.

As you can see I was admittedly over the line but in a completely unused and unusable space.

And my cheque, how many of these do you think they send out!

So if you do get a parking ticket, fight it and eventually you might get away with it. now i was obviously right all the way trough and was obviously going to win when some one with an ounce of common sense saw it and obviously coventry council new this too. But you might be able to grind a city council even if you are wrong as long as you don't mind the multiple letters saying they will send bailiffs round your house.

Knobbing Around

You may remember back in the early days of this blog I put a few videos of some of the best things I found on YouTube to satisfy your need for "car TV" while Top Gear was off-air. Well its taken me all this time to find some more but to tell you the truth I haven't done very well. It seems YouTube is full of supercilious homosexuals telling you that they hate you or what you are wearing (Chris Crocker and William Sledd I blame you). If it is anything that I might find interesting the quality is so poor you can barely tell what it is or people don't edit their videos before uploading them so you get 20 billion 12 second clips or a 10 minute long video containing 10 seconds of anything worth watching. So when I found a user called Bricktop1000 I was pleasantly surprised. This "user" has a wonderful selection of videos of him and his mates knobbing around in Mk1 and Mk2 Escorts, Capris and banger cars. I'm pretty sure what they are doing is illegal and they could quite possibly be pikeys but the clips are much better for it. I'm so glad I found some footage of some people doing something entertaining in cars that aren't Max Powered Corsas and Clios.So here you go I have chosen my favorite for you.
