    I quite like it - a sort of 'origami' look that seems to have started with KTM and is now very much 'in'. Doesn't look very sedate to me though! Bet it's a right wheelie monster

    I like the tricked up old Ford. Blackpool looks a lot cleaner than I recall it from the 1970s.

    Yeah, the front looks fine but go inland one street and it's a different story - it knows how to keep its face clean, but it has a shitty arse. Like a lot of seaside towns, it's full of people who'd rather spend their benefits money on booze & weed than squander it on rent.

    Just picked up a BMW F10 535d M Sport last night. Very pleased with it so far, will post some pics when I get a chance.

    Spotted this on eBay. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should... Fiat 126 on Beetle chassis. £8.5K - who in their right mind would pay that...?
