Red GTC on M40 / M25

Looks like someone painted the wheels that were black on the advert linked above.

Red GTC on M40 / M25

Pretty sure that’s no. 66 http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/~gtcregistrar/for_sale.htm Scroll down and you’ll find the advert (my old website from when I was GTC reg’). Iirc the seller was keeping hold of the plate, so that’ll be why it doesn’t cross reference. [image]http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/~gtcreg...

Beware the car thieves

I'm with Corky though, if they want the car I want them to take it, without fear of threat or anguish to my family. I disagree. It is because people roll over and give in that these lowlives get away with it. It's that bloody Elf 'n Safe Tea culture that we have, wrapping everyone in cotton wool an...

Beware the car thieves

Main problem was, is and will be, some people steal, some people buy stolen goods knowingly. We can never change that. Even capital punishment did not stop horse thieves in ancient times. Sadly true.... Although, when I visited Qatar a couple of years ago you couldn't move in Doha (the capital city...

Beware the car thieves

He’d just taken delivery of a very nice 7 series BMW. Another neighbour was car jacked in Mcr for his Golf GTi. Section removed by moderator As Geraint says... Crime prevention can be simple and obvious but in the everyday rush of our personal lives we can become complacent. Just try and make your ...

Beware the car thieves

Ah yes, I think I did misread :oops: Physical violence is rare, but the fear of it if you have been broken into isn’t. For some people, this can be a life changing experience unfortunately. We had a neighbour threatened with a fire arm a few years ago. Knock on the door, “give me your car keys !”. H...

Beware the car thieves

Unfortunately Geraint, they are not rare around here. Far too common for my liking. You hear of one every few weeks (break in, search for keys, steal car)=(traumatised family :( ).

The word on the streets of wales

Whilst chatting with a taxi driver in Turkey, he asked me if I spoke any other languages. I said “no not fluently, I can sort of get by in French when on holiday, and have the odd phrase of Spanish”. He said “that’s is bad, the English are not good at speaking other languages”. I agreed and asked hi...

Beware the car thieves

The faraday bags are great, but I do wonder if using one will mean that theives will then feel the need to break into your house when the range extender fails to work.

Admittedly, it could also mean that they simply move onto the next target.

Beware the car thieves

Knowing of a couple of neighbours who’ve had their houses broken into in the middle of the night for their car keys, if my car is going to be stolen I’d rather they use a range extender. I feel better knowing they can steal it this way :(

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Saw an AC Cobra Le Mans (replica I assume) in Macclesfield yesterday and a white Rover SD1 near the M60/A34.

The Rover looked like they all did back in the day, scabby.
