Mo, you need to grab a dictionary and look up the words "cheesey" and "bad taste".

Great phone picture, Mo.

Me and my mate (let's call him "Paul") had these in the 80's - Motorola's, they were and tough as anything.

One day, Paul left his on the roof of his car and drove off. It bounced into the road and was run over by several vehicles. He went back for it and it still worked. Superb.

(He was later done for running over his own dad and letting his mom sit in the back of the car whilst he let it roll down the hill backwards and through a garden wall. He was a little insane. He was also later done for importuning a Minor in public toilets. But these are other issues. Oh, and armed robbery at Midland Bank in Blackheath. I haven't seen him for a very l o n g time...I guess he hasn't seen much of anyone else, either...)

Don't make em like they used to? Phones that is, not mates!

Where I worked years ago we had an early laptop. Toshiba thing, mostly thick steel, more luggable than portable.

We decided to kill it one day. Eventually we had perfected the technique of getting a Peugeot 106 up to 25 mph and braking at just the right point to drag the laptop across the car park under the drivers side front wheel. It still worked. Well gouged though.

The wheel spats and rear spoiler are enough on a Vitesse or any 800.

Less is more.
No. :D

I like them but prefer them on a saloon because of the big spoiler.

I think a Vitesse looks better without them though.
