What's happened to the clamp? If it was a rural area I'd say shotgun practice, but... ?

Zooming in, that becomes clear. Well, the clamp must be worth more than the car now...
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.

For God's sake, don't show Tracy Emin – she'll 'acquire' it and promote it as street art.
Certainly never seen cycling south of Sussex

To be fair, the art started when somebody wheel-clamped a burnt-out car.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Word.

Also, it intrigues me that someone should tea-leaf the doors from the auto-flambe.
A) They're unlikely to fit a bodyshell that hasn't been tempered at similar temperatures.
B) I cannot see paint adhering to toasted metalwork.
C) The rest of the trim/glass/rubber you'll need to make them work will probably cost more than that of a half decent second hand BMW 3 series (I'm guessing that's what has been cremated)

I'm wondering if nikki otp could incorporate this into her journey series things...  ::-)

Does that belong to the bloke selling trinkets in front of the closed-down shop?

Neither of the couple sitting in it looked like they were engaged in active trinketing. Gone a couple of minutes later.

I suppose it's not that common, the front garden's too small but they park it there anyway.

This is some of the worst parking in
Bristol
screams the headline. Starting with this:

Well, no, it's not. In fact it's a pathetic attempt at being the worst parking in Bristol. The competition is tough, as soon becomes evident. But not to worry, the owner of the car above can take instruction in the art of bad parking from someone called Ann:

Did someone call Ann to give her a word about her parking habits? After all, she's not ashamed of her behaviour in spite of her phone number being clearly printed on the car!

I think Ann shoukd be getting whatever instructing accreditation she has taken off her for that.

Sadly, like most people, I expect she thinks that's OK 'because she's not blocking the road.'
