    Oh, no! Aaron, it’s gonna eyed to be built as a hybrid at this rate?!

    Why do they insist on calling these cars 1965 when they were made many years later?! The advert is happy to let you think it is an original.

    Container rates from far east have gone from around £3-4k up to £8.5-12k for a 40ft in a matter of months. The reduction in manufacturing in Europe plus high European demand has meant they can't...

    Let me guess, it flew off the castellated shaft as you were winding away at it?! If so, I've come close myself! :-D
