Did anybody see LE presenting a trophy at the Formula E London ePrix?

He just loves it doesn’t he, swanning about with his Rodney Trotter ponytail and TVR baseball cap, trading off past glories that had absolutely nothing to do with him.

I’m getting to the stage where I’m going to have to actively avoid returning this forum, every time I think of this debacle it ruins my day. hehe
Mange tout hehe

In Auto Express this week there’s an article about the three EVs that are going to follow the V8.

There’s me thinking nothing was happening with the brand and Mr Edgar and friends are working their nuts off to bring up to date vehicles to the enthusiasts.

What are the details? Are they ‘loose’ plans with some artists impressions or are they properly planned, costed, designed etc and moving into build / test etc in the medium term?

The remark was made by Auto Express that as the loan had been repaid to the Welsh Govt that manufacturing could be taken elsewhere.
I don’t know if that’s Auto Express thinking out aloud or if it was a comment made by TVR but there are plenty of options such as Fantasy Island and NeverNever Land or similar James Bond bad guy lairs.
Les, with his ponytail, may be reinventing himself as a Dr No, Goldfinger, Blofeld character who has made his £8,000 in the bank turn into billions. TVR is just a front .
Bit like James Stunt being a billionaire gold dealer now bankrupted and in court for money laundering. Les is a motor manufacturer............................

It’s wouldn’t woooosh if you put 10,000 bolts through it though.

Would a correction for accuracy be appropriate ?

Penrhyn said:
.. presenting a trophy. Him being the Chairman of a car company that has produced 1 car.

- Him being the Chairman of a car company that [has no employees capable of building a car, so shoosh] produced 1 car [by paying another car company to build it].

Who is Les Edgar presenting the trophy to ?

The man wearing glasses does not look particularly interested, in the unknown old hippy approaching him.
Keeping his hands firmly behind his back..

I don't think it is, but squint a bit and it could be Jacques Villeneuve.

Am so excited about the net zero plans for TVR and their electric cars.

"Batteries, they do not make electricity – they store electricity produced elsewhere, primarily by coal, uranium, natural gas-powered plants, or diesel-fueled generators. So, to say an EV is a zero-emission vehicle is not at all valid.

Also, since forty percent of the electricity generated in the U.S. is from coal-fired plants, it follows that forty percent of the EVs on the road are coal-powered, do you see?"

A typical EV battery weighs one thousand pounds, about the size of a travel trunk. It contains twenty-five pounds of lithium, sixty pounds of nickel, 44 pounds of manganese, 30 pounds cobalt, 200 pounds of copper, and 400 pounds of aluminum, steel, and plastic. Inside are over 6,000 individual lithium-ion cells.

To manufacture each EV auto battery, you must process 25,000 pounds of brine for the lithium, 30,000 pounds of ore for the cobalt, 5,000 pounds of ore for the nickel, and 25,000 pounds of ore for copper. All told, you dig up 500,000 pounds of the earth's crust for one battery."

This morning I went for my voluntary interview complete with solicitor. After negotiation between him and the polis, he told me they wanted to be seen to be acting fairly. The solicitor schooled me on my answers and prompted when I forget something. Apparently he alleged that I was making fun of his stammer which he says is a result of a stroke 5 years ago. He says I'm running a garage and not paying the correct taxes. No trick questions and after a short wait they said no further action. The neighbour is to be interviewed on Monday.
Apparently when he complained and two PCSOs turned up he had a go at them saying 'real police turn up to see him' (i.e.me). He's gone off in his motorhome yesterday so will need to be back for his interview on Monday. After which he'll be kicking off again.

@ Matti, it seems my little puppy is frightening the neighbour. BTW this is my 4th Rottie. He told the polis that I was going to to use him to attack him. All those monster dogs, does size matter? laugh

@ Polly G £250-£300k?

Horrid situation. Although there’s loads of threads on PH about dealing with nightmare neighbors, anonymous revenge, playing them at their own game, out weird him etc.

Particularly memorable ones are of course hammering frozen sausages into his lawn and then watching it get destroyed by the local foraging wildlife digging them up.

Weed killer poured in a pattern of an offensive word or image on his front lawn.

Sign him up to loads of free low quality porn mail lists/magazines.

Dig a grave shaped hole in your garden that he can see, then make sure he sees you dumping an old rolled up carpet or similar in it before filling it back in and making it a veg/flower patch. If that doesn’t spook him enough, dig another hole and when you see him peeking, stare at him whilst digging/stood next to the hole etc.
