Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

You only have to watch Highway Patrol to see old Commodores retired from family transport, see a second lease of life on the fleet of Bogan Transport, complete with fully sick(and often illegal) modifications to the exhaust, wheels and audio systems. But these days I find people who drive dual cab u...

Re: Ventura Group Discussion Thread 2021

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Maybe the reason our Camira looked good after it's accident repairs because the panel beater used a better paint, or applied it better than GMH did, they did the lot because not did we rear end someone, the car behind rear ended us.

Re: Transdev Melbourne Discussion Thread 2021

I wonder if they are ever going to repaint the ex Smartbus B7RLE's into PTV livery. A bit of an end of an era the B7RLE's retiring from orbitals, as I rode on them extensively over many years across routes 901 and 903. Also noticed since I have returned from lockdown, that many of the buses that had...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Camira, we had one, a 1983 model, as the family hack in the 1980's, used more oil than petrol, needing an engine overhaul at two or three years old and began to look old and tired at that time, an encounter with an echidna caused it to rear end another car and as a result, it got a nice repaint, and...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

My uncle recently acquired a circa 2010 Captiva for $9000 (reduced from $13,000 as the dealer wanted it gone), as a cheap second car, turns out it is not all that cheap. Radio died, DPF buggered, Engine light coming on constantly and Holden authorised service centre unable to fix, the list goes on. ...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

Been noticing that down here in Melbourne too, there is one tradie that frequently catches the same bus I do, the driver gives him a pleasant greeting, tradie calls driver for everything under his breath with f and c bombs, no provocation at all. Also some tradies coming into the McDonalds near my w...

Re: Volgren Discussion / Observations

I have travelled on numerous Scania K230's and B7RLE's here in Melbourne that were built in Malaysia and there is not much noticeable difference. I suppose Volgren send a kit to Supportrans, they put it together, then ship it back, and they get fitted with seats and other small bits, compliance plat...

Re: [REQUEST] Dashboard Shots

Love the sign on the Higer, telling drivers to cancel the turn signals manually, the mechanism must of failed and they could not be bothered fixing it or the parts to fix it were on long back order.

I drink milk a lot, with the occasional soft drink, mainly on hot days and accompanying such meals such as fish and chips.

I like McDonalds coffee frappe in summer.

Channel Ten ditching Judge Judy in favour of an encore screening of The Bachelor.

Judge Judy is funny. The Bachelor is trash.
