I didn't know they sold Vauxhalls in NZ
Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!

cool colour.
kept seeing a mint chevette in Blenheim driven by some old bloke and I so wanted to ask if its for sale- but for now i'm 12,000 miles away so will have to buy a rusty one for now.

welcome fella.
NZ desperately needs more immigration and fresh blood. Our eyes are getting far too close together!

That's Neil's back garden, dont you know? Keeps a ready supply of privets for emergency situations.

It's a long running forum joke, privet being an abstraction of the word pervert. I can't really remember how it started - whether it was a typo or if someone just said it one day, but IIRC Neily was the forum's original privet :P
