VY Commodores and their great idea of using 'quick release' fuel line connectors that need a special part or you destroy the connector and have to replace all the lines. I do have the required clips luckily - its just a terrible thing to have.

Also having a fuel regulator mated to the fuel rail (and crimped on return line). Forcing you (me) to buy the whole assembly. That and the way it is bolted in means you have to remove the MAF, throttle body and Plenum just to get to the bolts. 1 minute job just got annoying.

Speaking of trucks:

My dad worked for GMH at the time but drove a 1984 Nissan Bluebird (my mother had an early Ford Laser)

This was after a string of heavily discounted Holden products, the last of which was a Camira (the Bluebird wasn't a particularly good car on its own, but it was downright brilliant compared to that hateful Camira)

The terrible car stuff is my friend who had a 1989 GL laser 4door. As I had machining knowledge he wanted me to make him a fake intercooler or 'interfooler' as he put it to up its reputation. It was hilariously dodgy and obviously poo poo.

Maybe I'm the terrible for enabling him.

After that he got a TX3 and after the extensive mods and engine swaps, called it the 'Skyline hunter'...

Holden decided to put the battery behind the rear wheel arch on the VE series (or at least the wagon). Which was fun when I needed a jump one day. Car was in garage, so I thought I was lucky that I could jump from the back. Nope, the rear hatch is electric ONLY so had to snake jump leads through the rear doors.

This is a common issue with AW11 MR2s. The window switches are made out of thin, fragile plastic and snap easily, and new ones are no longer available from Toyota. GLHF finding a replacement that works!

Glass for a Toyota Sera is rare and expensive (and so are the door struts). I was the terrible for owning one, then turbocharging it and trying to get as many horses out of the lovely 5EFHE by strapping parts from a 4EFTE and spending silly money on ECUs and things I knew nothing about when I was at that 'I live at home and my income is 100% used on nothing but poo poo I don't need'.

The Sera's C155 manual transmission also had a final drive of 4.312 with a limited slip differential. I need to find one of those transmissions badly.

There were 15k of those cars made total or close to that number, no idea if the transmission was used in anything else...but I know where 5 of them are that I can guess haven't been driven in a few years. (one of which was mine that was towed to my friends yard and she ended up buying it off me for scrap).

Toyota Previas have an exhaust flexpipe that comes loose and leaks and makes a loud whistling sound on acceleration. So that's probably the reason.

"A man lived in Lithuania and worked in construction in Belarus. Every morning, he walks over to the Belarusian side, and every evening, he comes back over to the Lithuanian side with a wheelbarrow full of sand. And, every day without fail, the Lithuanian Customs officers check him for any contraband he might try to smuggle in.

For 20 years, the man works nearly every day for the construction company, and every day customs checks the sand in the wheelbarrow, trying to find hidden goods. They sift through the sand, dig in around it, but find nothing. As the years go on, they try to be more clever. They x-ray the wheelbarrow, run tests on the sand, check inside the wheels and axles - whatever they can possibly think of. In desperation, they even strip search the man a few times and run cavity checks. Year after year, they find nothing.

Finally, 20 years later, the man is old and set to retire. On the day of his retirement, he once again pushes a wheelbarrow full of sand across the border. The customs officers stop him and ask point-blank, "Look, we know you've been smuggling something across the border all these years. You have to be. But we've searched through your sand every day for twenty years, and we've found absolutely nothing. It's killing us - please, we'll give you a free pass, wipe away any past crimes, if you just tell us what it is you've been smuggling all these years!"

The old man raised a confused eyebrow and said, "Really? I thought it was obvious, I've been smuggling wheelbarrows."

Whatever variation of this joke I read - I still love it.

Lotus is dumb, i is smart. he cut the ends of the framerails off because one is damaged and is building a steel box that's going to slide over what's left.

He's an absolute hack doing dangerous poo poo, and it's terrifying that he actually got a license plate on one of the salvage cars he bought.

Jesus christ! I got curious and watched the first episode - it's 13 minutes of him talking himself into believing it isn't as bad a wreck as it really is. A good drinking game would be 'every time chris says "Fibreglass is easier to work on' you take a shot.
