    My old vitaras neutral battery terminal was touching the bonnet not letting it start. i only found out it was that because with the bonnet up it was fine and there was a hole in the bonnet where it contacted.

    51:23 - ".... they've got a top speed of around 20mph........" I have an electric scooter in China (stand on, not like a Vespa, although I have an electric Niu scooter too) that does GPS verified 52kph (32mph). It can genuinely be a bit scary! 😂

    Back in the early '90's I was a salesman for a car company. An elderly, scruffy looking gent came in & was looking at a new 4X4. My fellow salesmen totally ignored him. I took an interest as I was young & eager & thought I could improve my sales technique just by talking to the man. To cut a long story short he bought the Landcruiser in cash & that's when I found out that Scotland did a £100 note! not judge! All the best...........

    i would go to a car dealership, wearing what ever the hell i wanted to, picked up my most recent car in a full blown tracksuit as it happens. Still drove away in the car....silly really that people will look at your choice of clothing that day and assume your social stature or wealth small fathers friend was 19, going back 33 years ago, 2 men came onto the forecourt, he was a car sales man. Guys came in, old jeans, tee shirts...trainers....older guys in the forecourt where like, you can have them good luck getting a sale....he sold 12 ford seirras as a fleet sale. I dont know if my old man, told me this story, to make me think to never judge a book by its cover, or to never judge a person by their appearance (if so it worked for me) or if it actually happend...but it made me believe that everyone, regardless of looks, wealth, or anything else, deserves as much a chance as a guy strolling in with a suit my two pence for what its worth

    Someone tried to pull that "headgasket failure" scam on a friend of mine. He also smelt a rat and got his wife and daughter to keep them talking whilst he checked his CCTV. You should have seen their faces when he showed them the footage of one of them pouring something in the exhaust and then my friend telling them that if they really wanted it, the price had now doubled. They went away empty handed.

    my uncle went to a Porsche dealership a couple years ago and began to look around and decided on a 911 and when he wanted for someone to offer their services so he could by the car they wouldn't go near him, so he went to Audi ttrs (manual). I'm not rich enough to own an Audi or porsche. Just a story.
