    Ain't that weird :bag:

    Bought my Mrs some Brasher hiking boots years back, she's only used them for hiking once, but i find myself getting a bit of a annoying twinge when i see her wearing them for work (teacher) :D


    Mind you, i'm the same with mates that buy fast bikes or cars but NEVER visit a track or drive fast o_Oo_O

    The most 'offensive' use is that of a Haglofs Barrier Hoody (fabby purple colour :whistling:) - used for lectures every day……..!!
    Also a Montane Venture eVent jacket that gets kicked around on the sea shore (Scottish rocks!!) - when she's at SCUBA.
    I'm not paying for replacements and she cannot afford to :confused:.

    I told my consultant he must have missed the 'bedside manner' lecture.

    Poor sense of humour that chap....inversely proportional to his sense of self-importance :happy:

    Daughter says the best bit of medicine is the "little old ladies" (patients) - endless amusement, apparently.
    Sorry guys, I guess you all just end up as too 'grumpy' when old/ill :troll:

    Given prices are now passing north of £80k I am not surprised you regret it. Hopefully it was knackered when you sold it and not a mint example?

    I still recall seeing one at a service station in France in the late 80's and loving it. The Renault GTA 'alpine' was another favourite

    Lift off oversteer FTW!!!1111111111

    What a mad mad concept, i'm grateful i live in a world where a car like that can be produced, seems Renault are starting to play it safe more and more these days :(

    Crashed my 1st one through a wall the first night i bought it.
    No one told me that on the earlier models the handbrake operated the front brakes :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Bringing it home i was chuffed to ****** with it, there used to be a really sharp U-turn to get into my driveway, being a youth of course i would use the handbrake rather than a 3 point turn.

    Pulled the handbrake on the sud and bam, straight through my neighbours garden wall :(

    Cost more to fix the bloody wall than it the did the car.

    Weird thing is, my mate had a newer version of the sud that had a handbrake that operated the rear brakes
    :finger: Alfa
