Ah, a friend of ours has just taken delivery of 16 BorisMasters and a fully electric bus.Posted 5 years ago
Sounds like a painful day, hope no passengers injured?
Ah you can’t just blame the taxi drivers. We had a Wright’s Renown written off when a Golf TDI rear ended it at a reasonable speed, hard enough to break the engine mounts and drive the engine into the bellhousing.
It was a driving instructor on her way home for dinner. Bus was dropping kids off from school. Could have been a disaster. Still have the VW badge on my toolbox…Posted 5 years ago
Fogged up or dirty windscreen. That grey film that accumulates on the insides of the glass is plasticiser film that migrates out of the vinyls, the last problem the motor industry hasn’t resolved. If you don’t remove it regularly with a dry towel it builds up and attracts moisture.Posted 5 years ago

I stopped for an oncoming car a few weeks ago, the car behind me didn’t.
A Land Rover rear cross member, complete with bumperettes and NATO hitch can do quite a bit of damage to a small car. 😀
