    Real for me too.

    Great driver and builder, and a modest man. Sad loss indeed.
  3. warra48 added a post in a topic Hello from Holland   


    World Rally Championship.

    And welcome to the OP from another ClogWog living at the other end of the world.

    That's the car from the remake of the movie, not the original Gone in 60 Seconds.
  5. warra48 added a post in a topic Auto ID #74 FINISHED!   

    I think I've cracked this one.
    No hints from me.
  6. warra48 added a post in a topic Real or Model #209 FINISHED!   

    I say it's real.

    I know what a real RR looks like, as I'm driven to golf every second week in one by one of my mates.
    The other week I drive him in my Subaru.
    I think I have the better bargain here.
  7. warra48 added a post in a topic Real or Model #207 FINISHED!   

    I voted MODEL, but if that's wrong, then I think it's REAL.
  8. warra48 added a post in a topic Minifest 2013.   

    Ah, Bathurst. Was actually interesting and worth following on those them thar olden days.

    Totally ruined with the bogan v8 supercar crrapp today.
    Might slightly improve now that Nissan and Mercedes are joining the circus from this year.

    Nice work, nice car.
  9. warra48 added a post in a topic Why do we smoke?   

    I quit cold turkey back in 1975, and haven't smoked one since. That was when mrs warra and I were married. She's never been a smoker, ever.

    I can smoke the occasional Cuban or pipe, and it doesn't create any cravings.

    Now, I do love my pint of beer every day, as I have a home brewery in my garage, but I can limit myself to the one pint a day. Maybe I just don't have an addictive nature.

    OK, here's an old joke:
    Question: Do you smoke after sex?
    Answer: I don't know, I never looked.
  10. warra48 added a post in a topic How many forum posters does it take to change a light bulb?   

    I think it all depends if the light bulb changers have an Irish background or not....
    You work out what I mean. I love Irish beers. I love British beers. I love USA beers. Did I mention I love beers? I've just consumed an American India Pale Ale from my own brewery, so there. Then I took Pug dear for her walkies, so everyone's happy. And Mrs warra is making dinner, just toasted avacado, prawn, and brie toasted sandwiches. Easy Sunday night dinner.
  11. warra48 added a post in a topic Real or Model #204 FINISHED!   

    My guess is MODEL.
  12. warra48 added a post in a topic Real or Model #200 FINISHED!   

    I've got it right this time, definitely REAL.
  13. warra48 added a post in a topic Real or Model #199 FINISHED!   

    I usually get it wrong, but I say REAL.
  14. warra48 added a post in a topic Model Cars worldwide...   

    I'm a bit of a United Nations myself.
    Never sure which country's colours to barrack for, but seeing as I've lived longest in Australia, I guess that will do.
    15 years growing up in The Netherlands.
    Then 10 years in New Zealand.
    Finally Australia, in Sydney NSW, Perth WA, and now Port Macquarie NSW.

    Newcastle, the home of a couple of earlier posters, has a great hobby shop, Frontline Hobbies, the source of my supplies.

    As it happens, Newcastle also has a great homebrew shop, Marks Home Brew, also the source of my supplies for one of my other hobbies.

    50/50 so at the toss of a coin, I vote MODEL.

    Real or not, it's about as ugly as a car can get.
    You'd need to drive wearing a full face helmet or balaclava to hide your identity if it's real, just to save yourself embarrasment.
