As some may have noted I have some major clearance issues with the underside of the Prelude and the end of my drive.

Well they just got a whole lot worse, backing off the last two times has had all the delicacy and finese of a bull charging a skip over a rockey outcrop. Why is it getting worse and worse I wonder. Well I had a look under the car today to find out why.

On the center silencer there is a hanger which folds backwards onto a couple of hangers, well this has been acting like a sort of road-prelude anchor in reverse and I have managed to bend it right over and actually crimp the silencer with it. I will have to draw a sophisticated diagram for this.

Only solution.

Sell the rice-mobile.
And buy a big fook-off 4x4.
OWN the kerb.

There has to be someone who wants to swap a Hilux for a Prelude

Joey and me were torn between Carnation and Big Brother last night, we opted for BB on the basis Carnation was likely to just piss us off.

What, and BB wouldn't?

That lass with the afro makes me want to vomit.
No joke.

She makes me feel sick.

I find BB theraputic, especially on Friday when they made Venesa cry.

Yesterday I actually walked back to were I had parked the Prelude hoping it had been stolen and early rammed it with a shopping trolly on purpose.

Sounds interesting Turner, any more details on the Runner?

Prelude was fixed to today with a trolly jack, some bricks and the gift of gravity.
