A photo of another MX-5 vehicle somewhere else in the country/world has been published on-line, but there is actually an MX-5 round here, with the bumper-sticker . . .

“No hairdressing products are left in this vehicle over night” ;) .

You can buy these self deprecating bumper stickers easily off Amazon etc.
When SWMBO got her Sport when she was still teaching, some staff person though it's be smart to stick one on her bootlid in the car park.
SWMBO told them to remove it, fortunately with witnesses. The individual was not so smart when she peeled off the top lacquer with it...and had to pay about £200.00 to fix it. Hah hah...very funny....not.
Mind you, the world would not be the same without it's little tossers.;):rolleyes:
 
That all sounds totally fabby.
Carry on.
Each their own.

As for, and I quote you@
"You’re incapable of commenting on a car thread without mentioning your cars. As I said, they’re all just MX5s!"

Utter bullshit. Simply not so.
Furthermore, over the years on ARRSSE I've been approached by a good few people looking for their little weekend special to advise them on one they have seen or are going to see.
Because...they know I know what I'm talking about. So, no matter what you pitch about me, I've saved a good many from piles of grief over the years.

I do note you are not prone to addressing basic facts that are presented to you and tend to cherry pick
Not too surprised so far you got added to the UK divorce stats.
I can only hope you perform somewhat better with your (ever been hapless?) customers.
MX5s are fantastic little cars. It’s great that you find enjoyment from your little Mazdas and feel empowered by offering advice to others about buying their weekend car. I won’t be asking for your advice; I did the MX5 years ago, enjoyed it and ticked it off. They’re all MX5s FFS. If I had space in my life for a small sports car, it wouldn’t be another one.

Your dig about my divorce is ignorant, uncalled for and frankly shows you for what you are; a sad old cnut. And referring to your wife as SWMBO is a little sad.

I would’ve refused to peel it & pointed out that the sticker was quite correct.
It probably would’ve ended up in court, where no judge in the land would’ve disagreed.

Interesting to see Sepp Dietrich's personal emblem on the side of that Panzerbug. The "Skeleton Key" sigil of 1st SS Panzer Division Liebstandarte SS Adolf Hitler, which was created in honour of its first commander, whose name translates into that phrase in English.

Yep.
The chap in the driver's seat is the owner, son of some bigwig in the Todt organisation, and a complete Nazi.
Mate of David Irving.

Shame about the sticker - it would've peeled off easily if you had given it 30 seconds worth of warm hair-dryer (honestly).
 
The Ferrari F1 pic reminded me: this (or one the same) Williams FW07

Me and a mate were at Kirkistown circuit one Saturday, trying to fix the "telltale" which records jump starts. Dead simple infrared beam.

A privately owned FW07 was hurtling around, driven by a man in his late 50s. Cosworth DFV, it sounded unbelievable. The owner was a German guy who lived in Dublin. Can't for the life of me remember his surname, but his first name was Helmut! What a name for a racing driver!

Somewhere, there's a photo of me sitting in the car. I'm sure Boots the chemists weren't expecting that when they developed the photos.
 

Erm, that is not a Kübelwagen.. that is a 1970s Type 181, or VW “Thing”. As it says on the door, in fact.

There’s a bloke round the corner from me that has one, but it’s seen better days. Would have looked like this when new:

Original Kübelwagen (Type 82) for comparison:

While it’s the same concept, and fundamentally a Beetle underneath in both cases, the Thing is not a direct development of the original.

I’m sure Boots the Chemists have developed a lot of pictures they weren’t expecting over the years :)

Just one example:

As a NIG STAB (can you get much lower?) we were on Annual Camp at the old Burniston Bks in Scarborough. Must have been 1986 or 7. I had a camera with me, and it was inter-sqn sports afternoon. I wasn’t expecting to be asked to play football, so I asked the NAAFI staff to look after my camera while I played. Three weeks later I get the photos developed, and there’s Sharon and Tracy with their NAAFI dresses (remember them?) round their waists and their cloppers out :)

I take it that you are, ...............errrrr, um,<steps behind filing cabinet>............petite.

I tried getting into one and had to fold myself up, I'm 6'1".
 
@CaptainRidiculous

Anorak moment: That symbol on there is for the 1st SS Panzer Corps commanded by Sepp Dietrich in Normandy. The word Dietrich in German means lockpick, master key, or skeleton key hence the use of the skellington key image on the tac signs when Dietrich took over command.

And yes, as @Roadster280 said it is a VW Thing which has been pimped a little to make it a bit of a Kubelwagen. If you watch some of the older war films you can see where the production team has done the same with VW Things rather than going to the expense of acquiring real Kubelwagens.
