I once had a go in a P1 that was having some work done where I worked, I got to deliver it back to the dealers......Very quick & nice to drive, I also think Doive should give one a go! :)

I once found myself in a large derelict, disusge Brains brewery car park,
with a Scooby WRX and a set of keys, boy did i have some fun, clutch didn't like it.

The bloody thing had a turbo timer and the owner could tell how much abuse i had been giving it,

Awesome trying to get the thing to drift and donut.

Full wack in a straight line u get tunnel vision, well i did, most fun.

But some body one said a Scooby is like a clitorus, cos every c**t got one :P

Yeah, we believe you, 1000`s wouldn`t. :D

We won`t tell you off if you spell `humour` right either, as the level of that on this forum is lower than a Dachshunds dangley bits anyway! ;)

Daschund fact - Apparently if you're driving along in Germany and a Daschund walks out in front of you, causing you to make an emergency stop and the car behind runs into the back of you it's technicallly your fault as a Daschund isn't considered significant enough to make an emergency stop, due to it's lack of magnitude vertically! :shock:

Or the offending car driver is vertically challenged, Oh I give up..... :)

If it's wearing stilts then it's Fritz the wonder Daschund from the Stuttgart touring circus and it's the moron behind you's fault for driving too fecking close, which means his insurance company will have to pay all the compensation to the owner of Fritz's circus... that's one valuable dog. If the drivers short then they should've sat on a booster seat!

.... and if they do that they might need pedal extensions to reach the pedals, but hopefully they won't buy this, which is surely just a normal pedal with two holes drilled in it!

Not blind, nor was I drunk, but my poxy plastic prerequisite has been fastened to my bulkhead for 25 yrs, the last 4 yrs attached to twinnies.

When I used to race Off Road Landrovers, I never ever broke a halfshaft....common way to be `let down`.....whilst competing, but I did 2 just tootling round the streets, like setting off from traffic light etc.
So on that theory, my prerequisite will drop off when reversing out off my drive then! :)

Well I'm not shy when it comes to pressing the 'go' pedal - you can't be when driving a chevette - and mine seems ok after 23 years faithful service. Besides, if it does go I'll just form another one from a sheet of steel. Easy, cheap fix, always the best way.

Fair enough I didn't notice that, never had cause to stare at the accelerator pedal too hard which can only be a good thing.... in reply to the rest of it, what Doive said but 25 years!

I'm regularly to be found upside down in the driver's footwell wrestling with the brake to pedal connection, tweaking and tuning them so they are perfect for feel and response. Almost there! So I have had many up close and personal experiences with the accelerator pedal mounting. It appears to be a piece of white plastic stuff as was around in the late seventies a lot.
