You were on PUBLIC TRANSPORT?? Hang your head in shame!!!! :)

( Or have the roads gotten that bad since I left??)

That black 340 doesnt ring any bells, but it does remind me how funky they look in that colour - makes me wanna buy a load of rattlecans and get busy :)

Work in the city centre and parkings 3pound an hour. Ten hour shifts. Mathmatics suggest almost negative equity.
On the upside, i work in public transport. So thats free.

Thats because it's the bestest colour and a 3dr :lol:

Someone should make some V3M flyers so we can put them under the wipers of spotted cars. They may not join but you never know when they come to seel they could use us a an outlet rather than it get scrapped?

That is a very good idea, Maybe we could start a 300 spotted thread with bonus points for flyers under the window :D

Could also use the spotted thread to show 300's in scrappies so people can see if they have the parts they need and then know where to go.

We used to have business cards to put under windows, think I still have 5 or so! I spotted one yesterday, don't think he understood why a 360GLT was flashing and waving at him going in the other direction though ;)
