    None of ours are newer than 1999 but they would all bump if necessary.
    Dunno, last car I did it on was a B reg metro!

    Default Saw this this morning and thought of you guys

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Did the place even exist?
    Yes it did. Been there, got the t-shirt

    Well, there were at least two; one at the bottom of the manor car park ramp, opposite corner of the crossroads and the other was up near the harbour.

    Just had a look - the first one I mentioned is still there:

    I've never been to Newquay or knew they had the shop but there's been one in St. Ives since the late 80s at least... as a little kids we went there every year on holiday to stay in a beach-front apartment and I always wanted a shirt but was always fobbed off.

    My wife got me a T-shirt for my birthday this year after we toured Cornwall last summer and I mentioned it!

    sorry my mind went here

    Unless he surfs, wax off. Someone with more time can have the credit for the joke....

    As a kid I saw that and had no idea what it was... and obviously didn't dare ask my parents anything involving the "S word"

    I still don't know what it is though I assume it's just for when you want to give your big board a good waxing before getting it wet...
