This has to count.I have no need for it (or for the one in the garage in front of it).They just make me laugh as they are so small and stupid.The other one is a bit crusty and is a proper panel van type sporting a 996cc engine, this one is a 6 seater 1.3 16 valve.With the seats removed, it could be an Evo beater.


What's it like driving a car whose steering axis is behind your arse?

The reason that I wouldnt ever buy one, not even the Subaru dressed up like a VW Type 2...

Did you see the episode of Fifth Gear a few years ago where fat Tom crashed one on an oval track, at a modest speed, and broke his leg?

That made me shudder.

Already have a tablet, but got taken by the screen!

Certainly didn't need it.

Bas! Currently trying to convince the OH that we need one of these.

She says we don't. I say how do you know until we get one?!

Exciting and stupid all at the same time.You just don't get that with modern motors! I would say it also makes you a better driver, but the heavy rain and subsequent slippery roads we had earlier today, would suggest otherwise hehe

Next on the frivolous purchase list is a power kite :-)
You definitely need one of those. I've got one. Bought it June last year.

It's been out of the packet once.

On a day when it wasn't windy enough to take off. hehe
I used mine on a really windy day at the beach.
I'm not paticularly small or light, and I got dragged very quickly forward every time it got properly into the wind leaving long gouges in the sand.

Amusing but I felt like I'd had a kicking the next day!

Recent purchase for me was an LED Lenser P7, they were reduced on Amazon and a realy really bright torch is always handy....
