Hobot, I dont reckon you could get any closer to home for me than this, The Kelly's Bush green ban, 1971 - one of the knock on effects was a new sailing club for us, to prevent developers building apartments on parkland.

When I picked up the 430i, there was a big poster of a 2002, which was my first BMW, but that was before most of the Dealership staff were even born!! :lol:

Flashback!

As much as I'd like to, I'll never scrub the memory of staring into those red boxes while being berated by the DIs.

The first shower in the shower room, 50 or 60 overhead nozzles and the water never got warm:lol:

IIRC, it was (or felt) more like 20 nozzles and 60 recruits with about two minutes to get showered in icewater.

Right you are!!  It's been so long, I didn't recall the remake was with new BMW Minis, known as "Bini's" by by Classic afficianados.....  Some of my old mates from past Mini Meets owned both, and had bumper stickers made with images of both cars, and the phrase, " I am Bi-minial!......

Oh come on! I’m sure those helicopters are powerful but there’s no way it’ll lift THAT.

No, no... other way around. This is a photo documenting the first stage of an experiment in underwater helicopters.
