    Just reading that Champ bought his compressor when he actually went out
    to buy a breaker bar.

    What was your worst? Mine was when I went to buy a door mirror glass for
    the old 1.3 Maestro, and ended up putting a deposit down on a brand new
    Rover 216SLi. I think the difference in price between the glass and the
    car was something like 13 grand.

    None that I can think of, certainly not on your scale anyway.

    The solid silver, Teflon insulated speaker cable
    was £955. :)

    They didn't need to. I'd phoned to make sure the cables were ready

    remember them.

    Zobo Kolonie Guest

    Went into the offie for a packet of smokes and wandered out with smokes + a
    case of vintage champers.
    Can't remember how much it was, but 'cheap' didn't enter the equation.
    Have now learned (sort of) not to go anywhere near the local offie when I'm
    pissed :)
