Just in case you're wondering, the board is configured to correct common spelling mistakes such as Jenson and also, to "alter" swear words to polite phrases :wink:

Ah I see - strategic use of numbers and punctuation to replace letters was presumably involved!

Regular users will be aware of the substitution of **ahem** "poo" with "magnolia", for some random reason.

I am so used to it that when I went to the supermarket and saw a big pile of goods marked "Magnolia" I was genuinely shocked!

Another phrase could be "one careful owner"... omitting the fact that there were a further half a dozen that didn't give a creamy coloured paint...

Thanks for clarifying that Martin, I thought I was going nuts trying to post it with an “O”

Also often wonder why Magnolia was used.

Luckily my mother would clip me round the ear if I cursed.

Went to look at a V8 Bristol about thirty years ago, in a posh London showroom. A very reasonable price and advertised as "needing chrome to finish". Which was true. But only after you'd replaced the whole interior, rebuilt the engine, repaired the rusty body shell (not all of a Bristol is aluminium) and completely repainted the doorless shell. It was sad to see the front bumper lying inside, still with a Bristol Owners' Club badge fixed to it.

Selling on behalf of friend who's working abroad or doesn't have an eBay account. Have answered a few of these but given up after apparent that it's a scam to shift a car with no liability.
