On a personal note this was due to in the late 50's as a 7-9 year old in Scotland I well remember Grandads car had a bench front seat with no seat belts and there was a road we used where if Grandad gunned it right the hump back switchback (think Nessie humps) would simulate weightlessness. As a child it was called the 'whee' road. Don't think it did the springs much good

Don't think that would have done my springs much good either and I probably would have gone wee too! Well these days I would...

Many thanks Kiltie - I'm out and about today so in order to get the weekend off to a proper start, would somebody like to assume the mantle please?

Designs are already in place for the re-nationalisation of the British car industry should Corbyn come to power. "At least it is better than the Allegro" a spokesman for the car-workers union claimed.

Not a caption as it's not original: "The new Vauxhall Brexit: looks like it's heading one way, but when it moves it goes in another and ultimately has no idea where it will end up."

The designer was never sure which way he wanted to go so he decided to cover all options and called it the LGBGT.
