Re: What was the bull motif?

"The company wanted to be associated with the city of Milan, so they used the red cross typically associated with the Crusades in Milano. (Before the medical Red Cross, there was the Crusades red cross). The second half of the symbol depicts a man being eaten by a serpent. Interesting, right? To be ...

Re: help needed with abbreviation

"In the classical Roman Empire, standard coinage was established to facilitate business transactions. 12 denarii were rated equal to 1 gold solidus – a 4th-century Roman coin that was rare but which still circulated; and, since 240 denarii were cut from one Roman libra of silver, 240 denarii therefo...

Re: Power supply

Based on an admitted lack of complete understanding of matters electrical, I've always used a battery charger for this sort of testing. Works for me but I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that from, say, Ohm's 11th Law of Electrical Interference, I'm committing some terrible faux pas. :o

Oh, Nottinghamshire, that's OK then. They must have been stickers otherwise, presumably, there would have been arrows sticking out of it rather than bullet holes. 8)

Saw a new Pickup (Mitsubishi I think) on the A1 this morning with bullet hole stickers all along the side..... :roll:
Which section of the A1? It's just possible that they weren't stickers... :o

Re: Wiper arm "fins"

This thread has set me to thinking about the various 'embellishments' that were all the rage for a while and I've remembered the following:- plastic wind deflectors (fly catchers?) fitted at the front of the bonnet; earthing straps from the car to the road; tigers tails on filler caps; 'bullet holes...

You've just hit the nail on the head. This country needs a WRITTEN constitution, for everyone's sake.
Doesn't seem to be much point if, as now seems increasingly likely, we're to remain in the EU anyway.

I'm thinking to invest in a better charger for better battery condition a less stress if this happens again. I'm thinking something that cuts out once the battery is fully charged... any recommendations what to look for?
Have a look at the 'CTEK' range.

Before you go to that sort of trouble, get yourself round to the back of the car and have a sniff near the exhaust pipe. You'll soon know if flooding is the problem, then take t...

Re: A bit cheeky

IMHO Charles Ware cars are much overpriced, although I am sure the quality is excellent. But, presumably, they still find buyers for them. Do those buyers then join the OC and/or come on here, I wonder. Might be instructive to invite feedback/opinions from any that do, particularly as to whether or...
