Cars and their owners

Can someone tell me who makes that piece of shit Malasysia built car (no not the Proton, but worse!!!). Was watching Top Gear's worst cars of the year the other night and saw this boxy looking shitbox that could barely go around corners????

Funny part was it only came in second to the Smart Citycar

Now, who drives what, my guesses:

- I can see BP in a white van full of tools, always ready to help out
- Legend doesn't need a car as he's too busy posing up and down Orchard Road
- Chum must have an Alfa to replace the long lost italian love of his life
- BC is def. in a soccermum's people mover...
- Tug must have a yak pulling a cart or similar
- TLS boy borrows his mum's rover??
- 1-4 prefers crashing into expensive cars
- Mojo would be something pretty slick looking, all blinged up for sure
- and Bbq must have a truck to keep all those toys of his in (gliders, CBR's etc)

How'd I do???

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Not bad Dave.

White Volvo ( safer when trevs around=rear airbags) Boot full of tools,safety harnesses helmets etc. Oh and 2 mini deck chairs for when you just can;t be arsed and the beers cold.

Mojo was on the nail I guess

Don't get me started on Volvo drivers BP...... please tell me you don't wear a hat while driving it

Like the deck chairs idea though, would also come in handy when the swedish taxi breaks down - haha

YEp i hear ya

Know where you're coming from GD. It's along term rental and the best value for my buck i could get in Sillypore.
It does do a top job of getting the boys to the Sepang GP and is know as the Luxo barge. Great sound system, hands free phone and an air conditioned glove compartment for the beer.
Unfortunately is has the steering response of a super tanker and now i'm old so do i

HAd to laugh at the news that VW had told proton to get farked in the partner deal. Those morons expected VW to hoof up all the cash and give them control. They can't control a chicken rice stand let alone a bleedin car plant. Bleedin mat slappers

Pimp My ride

GD

Well last time the familymobile was a bishi bishi airtrek. Cost
S$115,000 on the road. Also was the best that I could afford at the time.

Since then COE prices have come down and I bought a Subaru Legacy Outback 3.0 last year. I had an idea that this would be a good wagon for comfortably transporting me and my gear to the race meetings in Sepang.

The master plan was that I would then hire a cheap Proton Saga or Waga for the weekend to give to Vanessa so that I could take the Subaru and actually be able to overtake something going uphill on the North-Sth Highway run.

Anyhow what I hadn't reckoned on was the female logic that applies to all of this. Vanessa tolerates the racing even though she doesn't like it. But any idea that she is gonna make that any easier is a non starter and so I can't have the car and don't get to use it.

Luckily Boycie's got a new motor so I just need to get him back on a bike and we're good to go.

YEs BC and we all hope this DOESN"T become the norm.

Aren't they supposed to wait till the divorce proceedings till they get your car, house, money ...nuts in a vice.

I'm not sure which is worse. no freedom or 4 hours in a motor with Boycie.
Damn the MSS is tough nowadays.

Do you get a driver with that???

They call them Outlanders over here BC..... and instead of your A$95k they'd be maybe 30k tops???

Yeah I agree with BP, those testical clamps need to be loosened a little

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Not even close

Sorry GD... Nowhere near unfortunately. Same as Singers (only around a third of the price) Bog standard, boring as batshit, standard issue hairdresser car - The RAV4.

Handy for storing scooters, trikes, cold cups of coffee, and absolutely nothing relating to bikes. It also has (in the right hands of course) the amazing ability of being able to mysteriously transfer paint from carpark obstacles to all exterior plastic surfaces without any problem whatsoever

Its primary use isn't for carrying around the nipper, but for ferrying petrol to the Mrs when she runs out on that fekkin Vespa she's got.

Still.. Been having a bit of fun thrapping around on one of these superretards recently.....
