Motor show.

Post by trubrit » November 15, 2017, 6:47 pm

Starting 17th, this coming friday until the 26th. A motor show is being held in the upstairs hall at the Center. Had a peek in today and there's some pretty impressive motors being displayed .


Ageing is a privilige denied to many .

Thought it was being held in the Old Tesco ........Where the tills used to be :evil:

Great Idea for a supermarket ..... cut down on stock quantity and variety and use the space to park a dozen cars and two or three tables for the staff to sit eating at .... 'kin t*ssers

Went to central yesterday. The cars are in the 4th floor hall. I was underwhelmed.

In the past the cars were out on the malls floor. Which somehow made it more exciting.

I did see a mini costing more than a Mercedes

".....I did see a mini costing more than a Mercedes"

Yes, I was at Nong Prajak a few weeks back, when half a dozen minis parked up, possibly for breakfast before off to a show or display somewhere. Looked smart, but guy reckoned around 2 million baht. :-s

A lot to be said for Thailand's sufficiency economy, eh?

"Looked smart" ...... obviously BEFORE they get driven round Udon's drainage canal system ....... can't think of any other use for the pesky little biscuit tins =;

Oh no. Let me guess, Statto. You drive a massive, black or copper colour pickup? ;)

Might go & see that. Amazes me how the Mini has progressed over the many years.

Had a white one in my yoot.

No, I wasn't driving too fast 'round an Oxfordshire country lane, when it slid off into a ditch. =D>

They're not so "Mini" anymore. The new ones are about the same size as my Dad's old family saloon back in the day

In the Siam Job, they had a gust of wind and it blew the bl**dy doors off ............. or was that when they replaced the bit of string they used to open the doors with in the early models :-k

They were also great for handbrake turns/slides when you got up a bit of speed.

The one my mate had couldn't do handbrake turns ........... didn't make any difference to the speed if the handbrake was on or off :-$

Couldn't get up a bit of speed as the window would shake open on its own if you did over 30mph :oops:

You're harsh. You miss the girls? Particularly the ones on the Nissan stand - saucy little minxes.

Sorry ... can't resist .. The girls are there to distract you from the cars :lol:

Whats the difference between a Nissan and a golf ball ?
A golf ball can be driven 300 yds

What do Nissan owners and a bottle of beer have in common?
Both empty from the neck upwards

Well there were about 6 people in the hall looking around with a Mitsubishi pretty on the pa. She was so loud u think she was heard in the food court. All the other sales people were sitting down on their phones.

Maybe I was there when everyone decided to have some well deserved down time
