What's an attendant, my memory isn't that good any more ?

Hi,
   The attendant is the chap who puts fuel in the tank, checks the tyres and tops up the washer bottle, while the bikini babe sudses up, rinses and polishes the windscreen and puts the wipers back down.
Cheers

Holy crap..... what a day yesterday was.

Left home at 6am for the Goldie.
Managed to not miss the last exit before the border. (I'd been in the left lane for about 20klm so I wouldn't fukk it up)
Met the guy with the wheels and did the change over to the 3inch back space.
I'd asked him about 2 spare centre caps and got 2 for free.
Headed over to the mates business at Burleigh..... got $300 shoved in my hand for some bits he's sold for me.
I'd just finished my coffee when footy shorts Shane rang.
He'd just arrived at Burleigh, where I was going to help him load a gearbox.
Turned out to be the next street over.
It was a patrol box, transfer case, bellhousing etc..... they weigh a friggin ton.
We go the nod to borrow a forklift, even though neither of us had a forklift license.
Loaded and strapped and outta there in under 30 minutes.
Back to Driveline services at Archerfield to have the whizzbang alloy shaft checked. (I was worried, rewelding may damage the tempering of it)
No problem's..... can be shortened to suit.
Off the Greenbank to remove 2 power steering hoses from a Skyline. (By now, i wasn't really in the mood either)
Got there, the guy had removed them the night before and even wrapped 'em up in rags ready for me.
Off to Blob Jane Ipswich.... some ice head in a Magna with no hubcaps wanted to race the Statesman on the way.... he was keen.
Hanging half out the window trying his best for a run.... in a 60 zone.
Turned out too, he had summer teeth..... summer there.... summer missing.
Blob James had my white wall fronts in.... they look like a crossply, but are a radial.... will suit the Z car well.

Off home and in the house by 2 in the arvo..... 410 klm and a very good day.

We've had a week of temperatures in the mid 30's and high humidity in the UK. I spent today outside in the sun swapping the roof over on my new camper. I got a bit hot so had to go and sit in the cellar with a cold beer. 36 outside, 15 in the cellar.  ;D ;D ;D

Wot he said. The beer was 3 degrees.

36 yesterday. 20 today and I need to get the camper down before it starts pissing down. That's the UK for you.

Would easily feed 6 to 8. The 3 of us only managed 1/2. The rest will be a breakfast fry up.

The doctor was a lucky man. Lucky the other bike hit the barrier as well. Hit by one of them at 200kph wouldn’t have been pretty

Way back in Dinosoar times a young local bloke around here [ young son of a drag racer champion ]  fitted a Bog Tin Blower to his Gemini [ Made very minimal boost ] But the electric tech just wasnt there  .. Got bagged out time and time again .. By the " real " street racers ..
Then the useles Ebay Cheap Chinese electric turbo versions appeared Eons later .. And now Another Evolution ....... And it does work ...Sortofish ok .. Bares out his theory of Boost on demand without the drag of a gear / belt driven supercharger  or the heat of a turbo  ;D ;D
