Tangent, but I used to really fancy a 75 3.0V6. The more aggressive Veloce looked too try-hard at the time, and just horrible now...

Still nice :)

Re: Your fleet running reports

I still regret selling that. Checked its history the other day and it seems it was never back in the road after we offloaded it at auction for a meagre £200 or so :cry: They both depreciated heavily in the first few years. I can't recall exactly but I believe the guy I bought mine off paid £14k for...

Not the most flattering picture then.
You should've seen it before I rinsed it - looked like I'd left it parked under a bridge at Blackpool sea front :lol:

Re: Police out in force

Fair enough. I wasn't suggesting that anyone carry around their docs - more that access to them could be fairly quick without needing to wait for the insurer. I'd say that now I get them electronically, I'm far more likely to be able to produce the evidence at the side of the road by bringing it up ...

Re: Police out in force

Edit to add: isn't having your car towed assuming you're guilty from the outset? What ever happened to issuing a producer? Because if you don't have valid insurance you shouldn't be driving at all. And why would you have to wait for the insurer? Surely the policyholder should have the relevant docu...

Re: ISS “incredibly bright” tonight

The rocket will lift-off at around 4.33pm EDT (9.33pm BST), and if it all goes to plan, it means we could see the rocket flying over the UK 15 minutes later, which will be around 9.45-9.50pm. According to MeteorWatch, the craft will pass over the UK from a westerly direction and will head east, whe...

Re: BBQs

I like to make my fresh dough bases wafer thin so even with plenty of flour, they can sometimes stick on the peel, sometimes stick on the stone etc As this is impossible with foil and oil, in my book, it’s easier but as I say, if you get it right, the stone is best. However, the differences are pre...

Re: BBQs

The easiest way is with a peel and a stone or skillet ;) I’ve done both and a peel and stone is not the easiest. It is the best way to do Pizza’s in the BBQ but not the easiest.. ;) I've also done both and beg to differ :lol: How can it not be easier to slide pizza on and off the stone than faff wi...

Re: BBQs

Easiest way to do fresh dough pizza on the BBQ is to oil some foil, lay the dough on the oiled foil, apply your toppings and put the foil directly on the rack. If you fold the foil over a few times so the folds are perpendicular to the rack, it holds its shape. Maple wood adds a lovely flavour The ...
