  1. I was referring to earlier comments. I think if there was ever a time these companies showed they are worth their salt this was it and they have, especially those researchers working around the clock. They could easily have put the price up and yes they invest billions in research and so on, but it would have been a bad move to do that under the circumstances, unlike those shifty types that flogged all the PPE stuff to the government. Either way if their vaccines pay off they will have rosy outlook. Good luck to them.
  2. One day someone will discover using pigs pee and a bit of tin foil in an old ice cream tub maybe the answer?
  3. Just think of all the University studies this decade will be subject to? Not just for pandemics and Clown leaders in governments around the world but the use of technology and how it affects our lives (good and bad). God help us all , lets hope we can get over this pandemic as a start then we can start rebuilding everything else afterwards. Those big Pharma may be making the vaccines at cost but you can guarantee their shares and world stage profile will be going through the roof. Keep safe peeps.
  4. @PaycoAny news ? Did you get the Jab yet? Can you type on a car forum still? Doh sorry its next week !! Ignore this till next week then haha Do you look like this now? (I saw this documentary a few years ago its very accurate.)
  5. Was that someone doing a PowerPoint presentation and filming it on a phone? I still like it some angles look a bit odd but zeds tend to look better in the flesh anyway as a rule? Come on 2040 hurry up I want to see one.
  6. If nothing else there seems to be serious investment now and eventually someone will get that breakthrough but cost and ease of manufacturing will be the turning point. Let's see hopefully by the time I retire but then I won't be able to afford EV unless they do cheap motors and battery kits for my old Beetle.
  7. For schools they should have sheep dip trenches as they walk in and out, simples. https://www.supplementsolutions.co.uk/barrier-d-sheep-dip-farm
  8. This sounds promising on the EV battery front? https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/jan/19/electric-car-batteries-race-ahead-with-five-minute-charging-times Of course the expensive top end cars will no doubt get this first and by 2035 I expect cheaper cars like the Zoe will too but lets see? Although I do think there is a touch of showmanship going on to grab headlines and get investors?
  9. About bloody time!! They should have stopped air travel or in fact most travel from abroad a long time ago? They have traditionally been slack it's not particularly the airport's fault just the government dithering? Last year when France was going through the mill a work colleague who is French came back from Paris to Manchester that very week they were locking down, not a single check or anything at either airport? I expected her to be prohibited from travel but no?
  10. We were probably one of the early Covid adopters (march last year) thankfully mild symptoms but did take me and other half a few weeks to get back to normal. It won't be until about September I guess vaccine wise for me? Let's hope it makes things better.
  11. I think it was a cheap BHS copy, white socks and usually grey slip on shoes! Very Depeche mode. Wish I was that skinny now. I still have most of that car in parts (after it was written off by a Sierra)
  12. @zedmanalex can advise, his 350z convertible had 650+bhp from what I remember, complete with flames out the back, I know because I was behind him!! As a lifelong air-cooled fan, I waited with bated breath when the new Beetle was announced, but VW like Land Rover and everyone else wanting to make a profit. Instead of basing it on a Polo being an affordable peoples car, they went upmarket and chose the Golf platform instead charging a lot more money. Ironically when Lucy had our daughter she did buy a new Beetle (2004 model) convertible and it was a cool car actually. It just worked
  13. Blimey its getting busy this thread? I have to admit I was considering doing a (just for fun) Youtube channel but covering my classic car service bits and bobs - nothing too clever, some nice background music and basic honest advice. Lets face it all the old petrol tech is going eventually and the people with the skills to fix it, so its a good way to pass that on? But I realised the sheer amount of time you need on top of the editing later so thought naaa I don't have that much free time? If he wants to do it cool let him , personally I was happy with my f
  14. If I posted up all my non zed cars I would need my own forum!! I did find this picture from about 4 years ago when I was selling the Datsun and the Moggy not long after. The G37S sneaking in behind the Van.
