Here is one for Gerard .
I think I know what you think about the LM 66 film .But have you ever seen , [
or heard of ] , THE RETURN .
Going through the site where I watch a lot of films , came across THE RETURN [ 2017] I hour 20 min documentary film about the new Ford GT going back to Le Mans in 2016 , the 50th anniversary of the win .
Not the normal Hollywood BS type of thing , and well worth a look .
I had not heard of it before , and it might not have got much publicity , even among racers .

No I don't know him Gérard. I'm not involved in the classic "scene" these days so haven't met these great characters.

Through your private channel can you watch the 2015 documentary directed by McKenna/Clarke (official selection for the Cannes Film Festival)? The Man and Le Mans. Goes for cheapo now here, far less than 10€.

Still looking for that one . Have only found trailers [ 2 to 3 mins } at the moment .

Not a private channel , but have a couple of sites where you can watch , for free , many thousands of films and old TV programs

https://bflix.io/
Link might work , but you have to click out pop ups , and all so called system updates it might try to put on you .
But it has a lot of stuff on if you can find it .

The powers that be are slowly pricing us off the road with extortionate road tax for older diesel vehicles, they want £325.00 for my old Peugeot 406 HDI that actually shows zero emissions on the MOT test.
What with people telling me that electric cars are free at the moment isn't what I want to hear, we all know it's only going to be a while before they clobber them as well.
I wonder how they will set the road tax on them for the different types as surely they won't all be the same ?

Crikey, I thought £240 for my 16 year old Passat was steep!

Eventually, when was a toy wholesaler I was rated #1 in France by Mattel. I can tell you that other dolls like Growing Skipper didn't do well even though you could have growing breasts for the same price (not you, the doll!).https://collection.museumoffailure.c...ng-up-skipper/ My favourite ever was Divorced Barbie. In the same box, you had one Barbie with a lot of valuables, half the house of Ken, half the car of Ken, half the bike and boat of Ken. Dog and cat was an option!!!

I dont know how you do it Gerard , but you seem to have a better understanding of English humour than a lot of other people I know .

But other than Barbie ????? , there is a film on that site I put up called IDIOCRACY.
I think you might get a good laugh out of it .
PS on the bottom right of the picture screen , there is a Flower ? like symbol which can put up subtitles in many languages .

Talking about humour, it took me ages to understand what was going on during on secene of The Spies movie (Marx bros). One of my bloke having lived in the US was helpful because, for instance, "shadow day" is literally untranslatable unless you catch the spirit! From 2'44": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmScynxUaa8
Thanks for Idiocracy avalaible through Disney, Apple and some others here.

'Idiocracy' isn't a very well known film I suspect, but I have seen it.

And the way the human race seems to be going these days, I think it may well be a documentary!

(If you've never seen it, then you need to watch it to understand.)

I think my Saab is even more than that, despite the test numbers seeming to suggest that the exhaust gases are "cleaner" than air taken in. It's even ULEZ compliant.

What annoys them is that, having ramped up car tax at the point of purchase, people like us who are not new car buyers have escaped that trickery and so avoided the instant large sum payment for the first years of the thing's life.

So they want to screw us for being far too eco friendly by making use of an energy asset for many years.

Logic, of any reasonable level, does not come into the way they claim to think. It's a dubious claim anyway, as I think more and more people are beginning to realise.

No, I'm sorry Grant, but I'm afraid I have to disagree with you there, you've gone too far now.

You should have left out the word 'reasonable'!

Yes Gerard, trying to spend a little more time looking out of the front window, instead of the side (and maybe even the rear) ones!

There's a rumour going around that it's actually quicker that way?

Not as much fun though is it?
