Whilst you are perusing your options, you could, for inspiration, hang a picture called TAXI by Graham Fairhurst on your wall.

As GHT suspected, the taxi picture appeals, something like that would fit well around here. :thumbs:

That bloke with the Lincoln has spent an absolutely massive amount on the car but seven transmission strainers in 100,000 miles? Really? I reckon that most folk would have started to question the possibility that there was some underlying issue with the transmission after the second change of filter, when the signs of burnt clutch papers and similar contaminants, along with the gritty texture of the recently added fluid, which would surely have told the average garage hand that something was needed, something other than yet another filter and a drop of fluid.
Seven filters later, someone must have realised why the fluid wasn't staying clean, seven filters at around $80 each, plus all of the fluid used to top up at each of the intervening changes of filter. That approach is rather inefficient. :lol:
Somewhere, by where that car stays, there could be a garage proprietor rubbing their hands together whenever that thing finds itself booked in for yet more work.

I like the lamp, but orange flashing ones as seen surrounding holes in the road are cheaper and can be fitted with ordinary bulbs for that industrial chic appeal so yes, a petrol pump globe is a nice object, but far too pricey unless it comes with the rest of the fixtures and fittings from the old forecourt that was its home.

Ugh! Looks like a bloody great carbunkle.
Indeed I am in the market for a classic 1950's caravan, but you can keep the Vogue at ten grand. I did, however, like the caravan on the link, but for goodness sake, I know that camp and pink are both from the same side of the coin. But this is taking it it just a tad too far.

Better yet, they do one for you too, Rich, and it's super cheap: https://www.menkind.co.uk/pliers-tool-mug

Have you ever wondered why bras are measured in cup size?

Oddly enough no, I haven't, and I'm destined never to find out as that link takes me to a page that's asking me to subscribe to something using my Chromium sign in name and password.
At a guess, it's the same as the reason for many everyday objects being sold by size: Off the peg is cheaper than having everything made to order? Sadly, although wheels and tyres come in a variety of set sizes, breasts don't, so they'd be no use in the event of a puncture.
:scared:

That sort of thing happens to me too, it's not something that I would ever do deliberately. One of the downsides to the internet. SO, I hope that the picture shows itself.
