Grrrrr what you saying about short people? Heh?! Trying to say we are angry and have a chip on our shoulder? Pah! Lanky wastes of space.

Now the Irish...

Thanks for clarifying Willk ... I'd asked in case I'd got things confused ... the "big" in BigMuz7 could've been referring to, er, something else

Feet, for instance

*edit* all +VAT
Well I'm 6ft 5 and I fitted in one easy (with no adjusted seat) when we had one on hire last month so you must be very tall indeed

somethings getting warmer .... I think its my face



Now girls and boys .. I have a story for you on this here subject ... was speaking............

what is it about Patrols ?

.... to an old friend of mine today,

who was telling me he's just dropped 3k to fix the gearbox in his Rangey on a 53 plate IIRC .. he's so fed up of it being in the garage, and the last time it broke, he was the subject of a 'jambuster' report on the local news as he got broke on the motorway ... that hes got shot of it.

I suggest he does a Basil Fawlty first and thrashes it with a branch to see if that would help ? 80k on the clock and he's sold it .. swapped it for a ....a ..... a Patrol

Says he couldnt be happier .. got a warranty all sorts of shit


So there you have it .. one less fool to be easily parted with his money
