love for sale…

Dear diablog,

I have no idea (nor do I care) what the rest of the world may think of me – but some bonkers Italian obviously thinks I am totally deluded!

A couple of days ago I received an email from a friend (?) offering me 14, yes 14, cars which ‘may appeal to you – let me know and they are yours’!

Mme. would be ecstatic – I think – and so I shall share a few with you, dear reader, as I become suddenly ‘cash poor’ –


A Lancia – any time.


Alfas – those too!


A Triumph Mayflower – who? me? do I seem old and boring/bored enuff to even remember this crap!!! What does he think of me for Gawd’s sake.

But, now guv, you are really talkin’





What a dream boat Fiat van – YES please!


oh, and another Lancia – OK then.


Er, I’ll pass on the T Type MG thanks – had several over the years – and none will ever replace my beloved racing TB


Ah, Mme has just come into the International HQ, demanded more house keeping and dispensed my morning slap on the head.

Yours, diablog, living in hope but forced into the real world

  1. Glynsky, you deserve a slap on the head with the thoughts that go through your brain.
    I am sure that the Druid will not be buying these cars too, as the canny lass Mrs Druid will not let him either.

  2. Some nice classics, but the Topolino pick up, brilliant.
    I think it would be the perfect vehicle for you Glynsky.

  3. Now that’s where you are wrong Smiles. We were discussing cars at the weekend, when Mrs Druid made the offer to buy me a classic car if I wanted one.

  4. I’m facinated…
    What would any of these car set you back?
    Thinking of getting a Jag sports just for fun and the benefit of at least having a clean unsmelly car to run around in sometimes! Work and doggie just don’t help!!

    A thought for the day…

    What makes 100%?

    Ever heard people saying they will give it 110% of more than 100%?

    What makes up 100% in life?

    Here’s a little formula that helps you understand.

    If — A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

    is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

    Then: H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K is; 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

    and K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E is; 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 =96%

    But , A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E is; 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

    And, B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T is; 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

    AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

    A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G is 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

    So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hard work
    and Knowledge will get you close, Attitude will get you there, its Bullshit
    and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.

    Now you know why some people are where they are! No aspersions towards Glynsky intended here.

    Luv to Casper. Pippa – clearly attracting attention again!

  5. Is that an original Pips?

    Or a copy and paste?

    Lemme know as I might owe you a: that’s clever! :-)


  6. Good lord Philippa – but why not?
    Are you talking E, xk120, 140 or 150?
    The ones shown are from about £6,000 to £26,000 – if you can find them.
    The man has gone quiet for a few days so don’t know if still available.
    Am waiting for info myself.
    Offence – what’s that?
