As I said when I was a baby when something went missing. "Let's see gone!"   ;D

 Well, once again it would seem the production companies have concidered such a thing as a conveyance as being "too hot to handle" on primetime TV. Plus the no-show really buggers up my next Register Page too.  >:(  Mind you, I've noticed with the Antiques Roadshow that sometimes they do an extra programme with stuff not shown in the original episodes. Maybe then....  I'll keep you posted.....

OK, hands up who watched Top Gear?  Possibly a predictable slagging-off
of the cars featured in the challenges but well up to their usual standard.
Jennifer Saunders was really cool as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

Now maybe I'm being a perv here but am I the only one to take notice of
the faces in the audience?  There was an absolute cracker behind Richard
Hammond when the trio were running through the News items.  On the other
side of the coin, Jeremy Clarkson was being overlooked by a fat munter (as my
daughter would say) with a huge shiny stud through her nose.  I thought it was
a wart.  Thus the balance is restored.

Catch the repeat this week and see what I mean.

Right folks, we now have three pages of postings about a feature on Invalid carriages that did not happen?  If we keep up this meaningless drivel going for a bit longer we might managed the 6 pages of postings the 'P50 on top gear' did and bring the balance back into the Invalid carriage field.  I am sure that will cheer Stuart up. 
What about Jeremy Clarkson test driving an Argson Electric through the new drive through carwash at my local Morrison?  Then comparing its performance to a Sinclair C5?.  May be the BBC producers should give that some thought.
Any more ideas?

Well Dan, I quite agree with you about modern size/weight. I once had a Bedford van, the one with a short bonnet so it looks a bit like the Fiat multipla. In its day, before Transits were common, it was a fairly large and intimidating vehicle, and a big step up from my original Mini. A few weeks ago there was one in our yard. How quaint and small it looks compared to modern cars. It is only just bigger than Mum's Suzuki wagon, which is a compact. I na asimilar vein i remember people at work in the 70's asking why anyone would want a car as big and wide as a Ford Corsair. Now there's one down the road...it is almost small !
Just remember: as one door closes behind you, another slams in your face
