It was a Thames. Thames was the commercial vehicle arm of Ford. They stopped making them when the Transit first appeared in '67.

Smokie: I am now formally asking for you to lock this thread. I can't take any more of this.

This afternoon I was filling up with Petrol at the Murco garage in Hayes, Middlesex. As you know, the roads are covered in salt and sh*t and having an important business meeting tomorrow, I thought the Subaru could do with a spruce up. So I invested in the car wash.

Cut a long story short, the brushes wrapped themselves around the small  rear roof spolier (it's the estate version) and started lifting the car up and down. Something had to give and eventually, the spolier came away with an almighty crack. It had pulled the bolts through the bodywork. Fortunately it is booked in to have the rear end fixed after the telegraph pole incident, so I'll somehow have to work in the cost of a new spoiler too.

BTW if anyone doesn't beleive me, if you pay the postage, I'll gladly send the pieces anywhere in the world.

I firmly believe the Commer is in someway behind all this grief. So let's lock the thread and see how it goes. Can't be any worse.

Bloody hell Andy, seems like you need to hibernate for the winter.
Here's hoping your run of shitty luck is about to change.

I know this may not be much help, but your last post was your 666th !!!

And having been away for a couple of days, I simply cannot believe that this thread has made it to page 19!!!!!

Before any precipitious action, in deference to the good Mr Zarse's current run of ill fortune, is taken on this epic subject (which could make to page 20 yet....)...........

Was it a Commer or a Bedford in the Italian Job ?  

The supporters van may not have been a Commer, and the other support vehicle was a good old Landie, but what was the make of the coach?

I really don't have time for all this today, but I couldn't concentrate knowing I was stuck on post 666.

BTW the engine number of the Commer contains three sixes; I'll have a look in the Book of Revelations tonight and see if I can find any oblique references to Commers. I'm sure I've got a nicked Gideon's bible somewhere.

Andy, I understand your desire to see this thread terminated, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen.  How the bl**dy hell do you just happen to know the Commers engine number 'like that'.  I am pretty sure that the so called 'curse' will continue to cause havoc no matter what happens to this thread.  that is, unless you've been out in the field whispering to the beast about these innane ramblings.  Oh God, theres a thought............Commer Whispering  Shocked Shocked Shocked

Easy mate. It's on the MOT document, which I keep in a file in my office! Looking again it's actually the chassis no. 0366069. I'll scan and post when I get a mo.
