All this damn bickering!

Personally, I couldn't give a toss as to what other people like/dislike.
I know what I like/dislike, so that's all that matters to me.

Confused

OK, so this should settle it - if not I dont know what will

The D5 has a curry hook - now, is that OK for you?? Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

PS - I dont know why but the A30 (or is it an A35) reminds me of my missus Whistle

And I had an A35 van - my first car in 1976. Paid 80 quid for it.

I’m sad enough to know that’s an A35 Shocked (the big rear window’s the give away Wink )

Love the comment about your Mrs Laughing

The curry hook’s a more credible link to the D1 than the offset number plate Laughing

Don’t get me started on the curry hook, mine didn’t have one because it was only an SE and £53k wasn’t enough to get one, along with the storage behind the fascia or under the cup holders. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

United Kingdom 2005 Discovery 3 TDV6 S Manual Zambezi SilverDiscovery 3

Nothing that dramatic. We had a sloping drive down to the garage. I discovered that by moving the lever in the middle up and down the car would move forward. I did this a few times until i couldn't pull it up and the car crashed through the garage doors. Embarassed

My father kept the hand brake lever after the car was scarped and presented it to me the day I passed my test. Laughing Sadly its been lost between house moves. Sad

Great present! Laughing

My parents used to have one that took root inside the garage and it only ever ran in my very earliest memories! It made a great play den though, with a smell of oil, old leather and carpets and a fient whiff of petrol that would take me straight back to the age of 6 or 7 if I were ever to smell it again Laughing

My neighbour still runs an A35 that was his Dad's from new. Always tinkering with it and very reliable.

Happy memories of my mate who lived next door but one when I was about 5 or 6 - his dad had an ancient Morris Minor in the garage - I can still remember the musty / petrol smell
 Now Golf GTI PP, 7 speed DSG.

Scotland 2012 Discovery 4 3.0 TDV6 HSE Auto Barolo BlackDiscovery 4

I remember when I was a kid, the family car was a light blue Morris Minor with pop up indicators within the B pillar. The Reg. No. was 5JMN and it spontaneously ignited over the Dava Moor near Nairn. A bucket of water to douse the flames and it continued on its way, but enough of this nostalgia, I don’t hanker for the return of these motors, thankfully we’ve come a long way and cars are definitely better built. Thumbs Up

Enough of those fancy modern indicators!
Bring back wind down windows and proper signals.
