No one talks about woman's car. :(


Plenty of womens cars here...


Actually when I think of women's cars the first thing that comes to mind is a Beemer... :)


I had also an Audi A3 Sportback. That's also not a woman's car. :tongue:

But I cannot be a gay, right? I'm not a man. Only you got the chance. :P


Heh!? You mean you never met any grinders? :D

Nope, but maybe it is better left to the readers' furtive imaginations! :)

Meanwhile today I came upon this monstrous vehicle for the first time...

I stood squinting at it '...Lancia, is it?? Jeez, it looks more French, what is it?'

Turns out I misread the badge, it was a Dacia. It is Romanian, and the company buys out Renaults designs on discontinued models.

Talk about a confused deja vu double-take!

That's a male hairdresser's car.

I miss my car. I had a Mitsubishi Shogun and she was beautiful. Huge, you could fit anything in and loads of poke. I had to do a left turn and a right turn today and I was pedal to the metal before I got any torque. Plus she had bull bars and halogens and I reckon nosing out into traffic here would be a lot easier with those.

I like the weather here but I do feel I'm missing out on spring a little, daffodils mainly.

And tv. Game of Thrones series 3 is on in the US and the UK and that is making me sad.

I often see a white lady driving around Funan in a really beat up white Toyota Camry, probably something from the 80s. It has that rectangular, boxy shape. I've oftened wondered how she managed to keep it going. I thought COEs weren't issued for old cars.


I love Beemers. Getting a Z4 when I'm back in Japan.

Days like this ..........

Last game of the season where your team stays up and its all decided in the last five minutes, you look like you are down and then a miracle arrives.

Nothing like the atmosphere of an end of season nail biter when it goes your way, especially if you are at the game.
Life is short, paddle harder!!

Yes, I did a little Hull City dance. Although we could have done it three weeks ago.

Many former socialistic states did this but it was in the 60s, not present. The one in the picture is after Renault 12. Dacia is owned by Renault now :)
