Seen any '18' plate cars/vehicles?

Post by Welly » Fri Mar 09, 2018 1:10 pm

I've not seen one 18 plater yet, I even went to that Birmingham on Weds and didn't see one the entire time there and back.

Discuss...

A week last thursday when the snow was just arriving i was going south in the middle lane on the M40 on the van limiter (70mph) and 18 plate Range Rover went past me in the partially snow covered outside lane like i was standing still,he must have being doing 90mph+,obviously it must have said in the handbook that 18 plate Range Rovers can defy the laws of physics when it comes to driving in snow.

Well I've seen about 10 of these new motors, most of which were bland to look at - I couldn't even tell you the make and model as I was nodding off just looking at them..
They did all have something else in common, and that's the owners seeming to forget to tick the box marked 'indicators' when choosing optional* extras*.....

Common as muck now, see 'em in all the car parks, (A14, A1, M1, M11 etc.)

As Kelv says, all bland and instantly forgettable

It's no surprise, most of them seem to be the same car with cosmetic changes and different badges.
