So....
« on: August 05, 2018, 00:40:36 »
So theres the common knowledge that your father in law acquires and restores classic cars for a living, which in turn he acquires the car of your dreams.

Then you end up just sitting there in a heap of a mess until your aloud to witness the creaming stance of filth.

(no it isn't a Corsa Gsi).

Yes I'm sat there at the in laws, pissed as a fart with me missus, and he tells me he had a lotus carlton in his yard. Then persues me asking a million questions, him asking a million more, and then (as my wife told me (yes I got married(in secret))) started blushing and sweating and the prospect at meeting what I've always adored,it all just equated to sleeplessness, resulting in....

Morning all!!!

Do mind the spelling and grammer, in the space of an hour I've inhaled half a bottle of rum, half a bottle of whisky, and the car of my dream.

Tell us a story boys! ;)

Stories about meeting the in-laws?

I'm struggling to understand your ramble above and if there was any actual outcome or something. Did you get married in secret and was this your first meeting with your in-laws?


A couple of girlfriends ago, I met her rents and her dad told me he met his wife when he was about 21 and how he asked her farther for permission to woo her.
Wasn't until a few hours later that, through other conversation, I realised his wife was 8 years younger than him...

I have been hinting at him giving it to me (and the car ;)  ) but its not even in that good condition and its still worth 60k so I may be pissing in the wind a bit.

It needs some work to get it through its mot but he said he will take me for a drive when she's good to go.

He collects Morris Minors so I'm not expecting a world touring car championship drive. I think he knows better to let me get behind the whe though. 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and top speed of 180ish. Would be saying my goodbyes before head definitely.
