Guess my car


(Linda Wild) #1

This is a conversation that I had with my milkman the other day ( yes I do still have my milk delivered!) he’s very sweet but also very nosy!

Milkman: " have you got a new car Lin?"

Me: " yes"

Milkman: “is it new?”

Me: “no, it’s three years old”

Milkman: “it looks brand new,”.

(Probably because it’s black and was clean and polished)

Milkman: " that’s an angry mum’s car isn’t it!"

Me: ??!!!

So can you guess my car from his comment and do any of you have preconceived ideas about the drivers of certain makes and models of cars?

I’m intrigued !!!

I have no idea what type of car you might have or what type of would mean anything lol I don’t drive but we have a car and a van, I’m wondering what it says about us !!!

The van says our name lol, hubby is a decorator and the van is sign written :wink:

I’m not sure what your milkman might drive, but some preconceived ideas are right, my OH drives a white van and really does think he owns the road lol

I am on my fourth car of this make and will NEVER EVER buy another one…we bought the last one brand new and the doors jammed so took it back for this NEW one…6 weeks in the battery failed…it failed it’s first MOT on FOUR things…I had to have the central locking removed because every time another driver zapped THEIR car , our one locked or the alarm went off…It is only 6 years old and only has 11k on the clock yet has had to have new brakes twice, new indicator switch…I could go on and on…bet you can’t guess the make…

heheheh I get it all the time.

I park up and step out and get oh love your husbands car. grrrrrr its my car bought with my own monies and has nothing to do with him.

I guess men don’t expect woman to drive low down powerful, lound imported sports cars.
I get it every time we have a delivery when they have to walk past 3 of my sports cars to get the front door.

gosh your husband loves his sports cars. yeah right he only has one and its in parts as he’s rebuilding it. He drives a huge V8 lexus salon car to work at the moment. So the only one’s on the driveway are mine plus the one adopt daughter owns but can’t drive very regulary due to her disability.

I lent my car to my husband once to go to work and some one said oh nice new car. When he explained it belonged to his wife (me) the guy thought he was joking until someone else put him right explaining nope it’s his wife’s we are members of the same car club.

I would love to have seen the guys face as David said his jaw dropped.

My OH and I have an ancient Mondeo. I don’t care what it looks like but at the moment, because it has let damp in at some time, it makes my clothes smell funny when I’ve been in it! So I avoid going in it at all, which is OK as Wimbledon is the best for public transport. Trouble is, having not bought a car for so long, we have no idea what sort to get next. Lin, @wildrosedesigns, is yours some kind of 4x4? Though that means “pushy mum” to me, as they always expect drivers of smaller cars to get out of their way!


(Linda Wild) #8

No, not a landrover Kylie. :blush:


(Linda Wild) #9

That made me laugh Donna! :wink:


(Linda Wild) #10

You could always have the van wallpapered Hazel, that would definitely say ‘Decorator’… :wink:

I just asked my husband what would be an angry mums car , he said a black Audi …well he got the colour :smile:

As part of our mission to cut our overheads so that we could survive on our self employed incomes we invested in a £0 road tax blue motion VW , it has really good fuel economy , which is great as we live in Devon, my family in the North of Scotland and my husbands family in London.


(Christine E.) #12

I wonder if I got close… :wink: I was only referring to 4x4 s in cities …


(Diane Mc Kechnie) #13

bet its a landrover discovery! we had one of those, a beautiful car to drive but if something goes wrong it costs a fortune oops I see someone else has guessed that


(Linda Wild) #14

No idea about your car Brenda @GweddusArt

What sports car do you have Eileen @EileensCraftStudio ? We have an old red Mazda Eunos (imported MX5) that my husband drives in the summer.

Not a 4x4 Christine @The Owl and The Pussycat but an SUV, a Nissan Qashqai.

My husband quite fancied an Audi Deborah @DeborahJonesJewellery, I talked him out of it.

No not a Landrover Discovery Diane @dianesdecoupage :slight_smile:

Not sure why it’s not letting me tag everyone…

(Deborah Jones) #15

(Linda Wild) #16

It’s a Nissan Qashqai Deborah…

Mine’s an fairlady a imported modified Nissan 300zx 3ltr twin turbo that does 0-60 in under 5 seconds.

It does between 17 to 20mpg and can only be run on super unleaded petrol ie V-power from Shell so expensive to run, race and drift. But its all mine along with 2 more of them. So I have an expensive hobby but then I don’t smoke and hardly ever drink so hay ho

Oh and its the reason I found Folksy due to meeting another lady who owned one and who then introduced me to racing and folksy :smile:

She has since passed away to that great Drag Strip in the Sky due to cancer :frowning: I only found out a couple of months ago after trying to contact her again after she seemed to disappear. No one knew she was ill :frowning:
