Hi everybody, my names Chris and I'm a liability. I think it's easiest to sum up with a quote from a lass at work recently.
When you see neglected mechanical or electronic things, you feel like normal people do when then see an injured kitten
I quite liked that.

I can't bear to see a functional thing thrown away or abused, yet when the car is on the road enjoy partaking in road rallies, auto solos, sprints and NASLRing

Over the last... 13 years I've had a number of 300's, but have a worrying attachment to the '89 340 GL I bought as a spare parts car called Fake. For the last 18 months I've had to drive an auto Corset as Fake seems to have some kind of curse (over this winter, in the photo below, both the tree has been blown down landing 6inches from the car, then the garage wall blew out landing on it. It's only parked there as 2 years ago someone drove into it...)

So, this weekend I decided enough was enough and bought a sensible vehicle

Awesome! Am I right in thinking you can kill the engine and cycle on cyclepaths legally?

It depends on the council, but for 95% no :(.

Realistically, most people have issues working out what to class it as, let alone where it should be allowed!
