Ooh, he's quick off the mark!
Thanks How.
The keys to that "car" are waiting to be handed to their new owner. It's up to the winner of the quiz whether they want the old Austin which is laying on its roof and has no wheels, or the Valiant which has no motor in it.

Cheers,
Adam.

Brad:

2 Valiants? No way, they're too expensive for that.
No prizes for 2nd...you know what they say, 2nd is the first loser, so it's win the competition...or nothing.

Cheers,
Adam.

Minor correction--Bon Scott actually choked to death on his own vomit after a night of heavy drinking. Probably one of the few means of death that would make an overdose look dignified...

Hi everyone,

This week's competition was supposed to finish today, but I'm going to add a few extra days to it, because currently the only entry has come from How.
That means this week's competition will now finish on August 1st.

It is pretty disappointing, because there was several of you who expressed an interest in doing these quizzes before I re-started them. I know there's plenty of people who's viewed this topic, it takes no more than a few minutes to post up your answers, and yet there's still only been the 1 entrant. So for those of you who view this thread from now on, what's wrong with having a go?
Obviously a competition can't continue if it just has 1 or 2 entrants, so it's up to you whether you want these quizzes to go on or not.

Again, thanks to How for his answers, and good luck to those of you who do participate!

Cheers,
Adam.

Robert:

FINALLY !

Someone picked up on the malapropism....

Youse guys should take a stab at Wenty's challenges....He goes to the trouble to put 'em together and even people who I won't mention like TIM MOSLEY don't even try.



Adam:

So...uh...where is the "project" buddy? Is it ready to go? Lemme know.
