    I remember when the road authorities brought him out to promote road safety, and then dragged him around, literally because he was to drunk to stand on his own, from event to the other.

    Sad, and yes he is lucky to be alive.

    My grandmother had one when they lived in westville.
    Its a family legend that the cops could not catch her and when she finally sold it to another woman, also a blonde who was pulled over on her first day driving it and the Policeman said: Madam, we have been looking for you for a long time!

    Had a lot of fun in one of these, my 1991 Toyota Conquest RSi Twincam. Still one of my favourite vehicles that I have owned.

    This drove past my shop today.

    It took all my restraint not to run after the owner and offer him everything I have plus R5 in exchange for his car. Sadly I don't think he would let it go for R5

    My customers must think I'm nuts for running outside to take pictures of cars.

    Fortunately my staff are here to confirm to them that I am nuts

    The howl of those old BMW sixes gives me goosebumps.

    My first car was a new 1984 Golf GT, 2 door, Gun Metal Blue. It was a 1600 with 63kw, that was quite good for that time. I had endless fun with that car and drove it for many years. I drove down Voortrekker Street, in Pretoria the other day and had some flash backs of spinning tyres and dices over weekends. Wow, that was a long time ago. Eish.

    I don't have nice photo's of my car except for this one on the Bloukrantz road:

    ...and this one after a get-together with the wall at the church in Flower Street, Pretoria. The car was just over a month old. But in those days we still had proper panelbeaters and it was fixed properly.

    I saw this one advertised in the Junkmail for R85k. To a rand, I paid R10k for mine. Except for the mags, this could have been mine.
