As you may or may not know I added a short film the club did for the BBC last year to youtube. Recently I got notified of a comment made on said film..

Have a look and see what you make of it!!

U Tube comments

Yes it is best to laugh at him as he only has a Badged Toyota and if they were around 34+ years ago they were more rusty than a Marina!! :lol:
Also I get some more fun out of this as his last comment seemed to be triggered by my posted comment above his (Mungryflup) on U Tube!!! :wink: 8)

Not sure what he`s getting at..

Post by Uncle Frank » Thu Jun 07, 2007 10:09 pm

What a sad little man,...hiding behind his anonymity, i bet he`s really proud of himself!, he obviously loves his Jap poser wagons, believe me, not all Lexus` are wonderful i repaired a Soarer a while back...7 years old and it had rotten rear arches!! sounds to me like a Marina beat him to a prize at a car show somewhere and he didn`t like it!!! :twisted:

Actually, I'll admit to having a Soarer Twin Turbo myself (still badged as a Toyota). It's 15 years old and is still a fantastic car. Over engineered to the point of being rediculous. Smooth, powerful and very quick...BUT!!!!

Like most newer cars.....It is soulless. I still prefer to drive old cars because they feel alive and have their own personalities. And you actually get more lookers driving one, as most younger people don't have a clue as to what they are. :D
