Would consider a part exchange with a pair of rose tinted spectacles.

A pre-Geneva Motor Show model would be excellent.

Steve, I think Mrs M's got a spare one she doesn't use (especially when entering the man-shed), shall I send you a PM ? laugh2


Contrary to widespread belief, wives do have a sense of humour, but it can become seized up over time. Like the traditional Morgan front suspension, there are two lubrication points. On the upper one, I use alcohol. This can help with access to the lower one... hide

I'm sorry, Common Sense was discontinued in the 1970s.


Followed by a steep rise in Litigation

Ah sorry, it was litigation that replaced common sense. I thought it was Political Correctness but that must have followed litigation.
My mistake.

No mistake, they are twins and never seen apart.

Sorry I have to correct you, that door catch is from a Morris Marina. I know because I had one. In brown. Ironically, that car came with a dealer-fitted SOH which I could never master. I think you can only get spares them from China now, which is the only country where the Red Robbo trademark is still revered.

Graham , Dad used to say " you may be the most intelligent man in the world but if you don't have common sense then you are an idiot" . Just look at the politicians . He was a R.E. defused mines booby traps etc etc and laid them. He was out on his own about to remove land mines in a field . When a army wagon filled with fresh new squaddies and a S. African VIRGIN Captain . Dad told him you cannot go forward and why. He ignored Dad and they where all blown to bits . That's one A hole that had none. Had it been Dads older brother uncle Jim ( a sniper ) I have his war records and a good few blank areas, ex boxer . he would have climbed in the wagon pulled him out and chinned him had his strips removed so many times dad told him to use sticky tape.He also told me as the British got deep in Germany he was on a narrow road leading to a bridge heard the rumble of British tanks . It was the 51st Highland Div . The captain halted and dad climbed on his tank told him the road was mined . Dad removed every mine but did not defuse them lay them along the road side for speed and told the captain " the way was clear they could go and he would defuse them after they got past . Dad said the bagpipes started the captain saluted him and they rumbled off and Dad defused the rows of mines .
