Can't see the issue myself. But I drive a shed!

He also had to pay a "victim surcharge"? As it didn't fall off, I wonder who the victim can have been?

Incidentally, I do think that was pretty crazy. I'm surprised he only got 3 points on his licence.

Way back in the '80's, working in a rural engineering business, it was always a good day when a job like this came in.

Hope I'm not getting too nostalgic in my older age 8-)

Nostalgia ;) there's a small firm in Gloucester that repaired a shaft for me in 2018.

Thanks Pete,
I haven't stripped the windscreen area on the Dyane yet, I suspect it will be like this one was.

I'd better start thinking about it.

I seen a guy the other day with four or five pallets strapped to the roof of a PT Cruiser. I didn't get a close look at how he secured them. Whatever the case may have been it didn't look that safe.

It seems the most common item I see people carrying on the roof of their cars are mattresses.

The most interesting item I ever saw something carrying was a deer strapped to the hood of a VW Karman Ghia!
