Thought you guys might enjoy this, at least I did through the process. Coffee machine is a la pavoni Stradivari, which was very due for a calcium cleanup and new rubbers.. Taking it apart: Soaking in vinegar overnight to get out the gunk, in the picture are the chrome group head, bronze piston and scree. With some assorted bits: Now this is pretty much the only type of puzzle I will consider doing. On the other hand, it's Sunday morning and I can't get coffee until...
I understand the sentiment, I truly do, but to me this is looking back with rose tinted glasses (if that expression exists in English). Yes, older cars where more simple, but they too had a lot of shit happening to them. Just not electrical, but the engine/ignition/suspension or some other critical part giving out. It's why the triple a, and my countries equivalent, used to be so much more important. Modern cars are simply better, in almost every way than what they churned...
They do here, as Finn was kind enough to point out The CLK as well as the 3series coupe kind of have a drugsdealer vibe to them. What do the dealers over there drive?Don't forget soccer women, although most of them have by now moved on to the newer models..And in this case a well dressed dickhead
Ugh, I hate dealing with car dealers.. But its done, im the new owner of a merc. clk 320 cdi. :tired: Wanted a coupe, diesel and automatic drive, which this car nicely fulfills. And I'll give you guys this quote as the coworkers had a lot of comments on my choice:" i'd rather have people think that I keep a bag of weed in the dash than that I have a labrador and two kids in the back". Which was my exact reply to them (one in two at work owns a volvo v70, with the...
Untermensch, yet i am a member of the 'herrenvolk'. This is quite confusing.. In addition, spreading my cheeks whilst standing up would make me think of Goatse, which isn't a thought I'd like to entertain..
Its got to do with the general shape of the car. If you look at any jaguar XJ before the successor to the x350, you'll see that the major lines of the car are perpendicular (bottom of the car and the window bottom, which taper at both ends like so , which makes the car arguably look like a cigar.The x350 was the last with this shape, which a lot of jaguar enthousiasts lament...The shape of the cigar is called a figurado, which was the shape used in a lot of older...
I actually did:Say 20 years ago as a kid when, as a very grand exception (my parents hated the place) we did McDonald's drive through.. The tables where too small for that though..they really have no use except for decor.Interestingly the x350 was the only one i was looking at as its the only 'cigar' with a Diesel engine. A slightly lesser sacrilege than lpg, but still..
Love em I grew up with the vanden Plas, or Daimler as they where called here, stepdad bought a new one every two years. They still have something special to me, although driving one is simply not feasible with gasoline approx. 9 bucks a gallon, and conversion to LPG is sacrilege.The maintenance is certainly an issue, although the V8 you have should insulate you against the troubles you can get with the V12. Electriicity shouldn't be a problem so late in the Ford era..
Very nice rach, one of the very last of the thinner cigars, being the x308. Im guessing the 4 litre V8?Finally something other then a bmw, Audi or merc..
Well, I do wear kevlar jeans. sometimes with knee protectors in. Actually considering having a tailor here custom make me a pair of jeans or slacks with a fabric I have faith in with kevlar. I wear a 34/36 , which is pretty much unobtainium when it comes to motorcycle jeans.. Would be a very Styfo project..
