    Wheeler Dealers Series 16

    My favourite styling has to be the facelift MK1. Glad the correct light terminology were used to describe the lamps - as I clearly didn't

    Wheeler Dealers Series 16

    When I use to read Classic Ford, I would not even need to word the following as a question Didn't the original Mk1 share the rear lights with the Escort?, facelift Mk I had the top and bottom lens design. Then MK II went back to an original MK I rear lights but with an upgrade design?, where the lenses went from left to right. Then MKIII were like the MK II but with the ridges

    Not sure why, but I get the clear impression that you just don't like the fella

    Which UK models had the Siamese heads also? It was the timing gear setup fact. Does anyone know why this didn't catch on?

    Hyperloop travel

    I remember reading about Hyperloop travel in 2017, but several newspapers republished their articles in the last few days. There are some train enthusiasts and people who work in the industry on here. Therefore understand this far better than I do. Is this a real possibility? If so is it something to look forward to, and to be welcomed? or is dangerous and will open several cans of worms like the negatives of fracking, and should not be entertained?

    Wheeler Dealers Series 16

    The highly regarded TV car presenter Mike and his trustworthy co-host mechanic Ant are on tonight with the start of the new series. I have captured Mike's genuine mistake about the Capri which they did in series one. As tonight's UK version may have this edited.

    Mrs May's Mercedes experience

    Sir Graham Brady has asked to see May tomorrow after PMQs. Please can this not turn into a Brexit thread - too many arguments

    Mrs May's Mercedes experience

    More than likely she was stuck in the back, unable to negotiate the backstop

    Minicab fare con?

    That' how I felt that it was BS. As soon as he knew I witnessed what he did, both of our body's language changed. Mine was angry his was embarrassed- I am regretting now not saying something but I didn't have time I don't want to spend too much time on this but will report to local council via phone or email if they were swindlers. I therefore think this is what I need

    Minicab fare con?

    Cheers all It’s nothing obvious with the increase. Funny enough there was a poster in the minicab explaining all the surcharges and none of them applied to me. Also paid cash, and a company can no longer charge for using either credit or debit card At best I’ll only complain to the council. This will only be if I establish that I was conned, so they stop doing it to other passengers.

    Minicab fare con?

    If it's standard practice to con people at that firm then I feel they will just fob me off. I will rather establish that if this can happen for honest reasons, or if this is dishonest. If conned I may report them to their local council because how many other people have they done this to.
