For Sale: One slighty used Rod Shop

Guys:

The real end of an era is occuring at the Castlemaine Rod Shop. Rod is selling up so that he can retire. The shop is yours for $750,000 plus stock and maybe land.

As many of us have dealt with and sent business Rod's way, I thought that I would let you guys know.

Cheers,

Webber

McGiver

On a long awaited holiday Mcgiver decided to take an ocean cruise,he was driven to the docks,by his boyfriend Budd,who was invited to make sure Mcgiver got the rest he deserved.
They boarded a ship named Breastanic,and set out to find their cabin.
Once aboard and settled in,they decided to look over the ships leisure activitys,after a long pondering,they just decided to shower together.
By this time the ship had set sail on it's maiden voyage.
After a few days cooped up in their cabin Mcgiver thought he would remove Budds butt plug from Venus,and go get something to eat.
As he wandered through the ship he heard an enormous fart which blocked the sound of the ship hitting a huge rogue seagull,which ruptured the hull in many not so watertight compartments.

Lighten up a little

Ok folks I am going to probably start a barrage of comments here (the more the merrier).

Like a lot of people I have owned many many cars,not all were Holdens,infact I have only owned 3 a HG Kingswood,An FC special and a HQ Statesman.

I am not and never will be a die hard Holden fan,being a mechanic I have the fortitude to see what other cars have to offer,and as a consequence see all the short falls.

All cars have faults,(yes even Holdens) but by and large people should not be ridiculing others for what they choose to drive.

I have in my many years as a mechanic seen some wonderful cars,and some woeful ones,but even the woeful have good points.

Ford Jokes

I know there a few of us here whom do not dislike all fords, but hey some of these are reasonably funny:
Want to laugh at Ford? Here are some Ford jokes, as if the car isn't a big enough joke in itself!!

The Ford AU ute has cup and thermos holders built into the tailgate. So when you push the ute you can have a drink at the same time.

Friends don't let friends drive Fords.

If all the vehicles in New Zealand were 'Built Ford Tough', the shoulders of New Zealand's highways would be a much more crowded place.

Have you driven over a Ford lately?

Have you outdriven a Ford lately?

motion lotion switching

I have a 179 in my LandRover series IIA which has twin fuel tanks. I was wondering if it would be ok to run normal LRP in one tank and high octane+valve protector in the other so i could switch whenever i needed more power. Would the occational mixing of juices be a problem when i switched them over?

what's going on here guys??

Hi guys, got a bit of a problem.

As some of you guys might know that I'm a youth worker and some of these kids I work and live Havent stole a car in months now because of this forum, A big claim you might say, but I get a couple of kids reading this site and we sit down and discuss what its like to do something of your own, not nesessary a old holden but something they say "we acheived on our own" Last night at work (Monday 26th Jan) This young client is reading about bikies comming to town to get someone, guys who drive old holdens telling other guys in old holden to F#%K off, calling each other wankers. Now I know what the real worlds about and its not nice out somtimes but its not that bad all the time, I'm certainly not going to ASK or tell you guys what not to say or how to say it, but think that there might be a young boy and girl reading this stuff and when we get down to what this site realy is about and what it acheives, this site has grown in leaps and bounds in the last 12 months so lets have our differences and varying opinions but it doesnt have to be foul laungage EVERY TIME.

Let's clear this up

Firstly, it was not me, red1tonner who posted the insulting comment towards kikurass and his girl. I just happened to be viewing the same thread at the same time and had been too lazy to sign in. But, I did sign Red at the bottom of my comment.

Secondly, I am entitled to my opinion of Datsuns or any other car I don't like, without being chewed out by MR.Agro.

My first post on this forum, kikurass chewed me out big time. All I wanted was 'knowledge', not law breaking tips. Why are you so agressive kik?

If this was an agro forum where peolple do nothing but put [Naughty Pottyword] on each other and threaten violence I would not be here. I think this forum is great, and would like to remain a member. Do you have an issue with newcomers?
