Apparently they're made out of old baked bean tins... bloody horrible little thing :/

My wife's old Ka once tried to kill us by pumping smoke through the air vents. Apparently some of the wiring behind the dash was faulty, it was apparently a very simple fix which needed the whole dashboard ripped out to get to it.

Modern cars are a pain in the arse! :/

And yes, to me a 16 year old Ka is modern :P

Now I own this mean machine...

Wait, I don't see any barbed wire or mods to it yet!

I've changed the front badge!!! :P

I just can't get the motivation to do anything to it, it's just 'a car'... besides which I don't intend to keep it that long so don't want to ruin the resale value ;)
Once I get Hem back on the road it can go do one!

Speaking of which, if anybody would like to make donations to the 'Get Hemlok Back On The Road' fund then my paypal address is [edited due to being a scrounging git ;) ]

For anybody that's interested I now have a blog about my Hemlok rebuilding progress (or lack of it)... http://hemloklives.blogspot.co.uk/

Prepare yourself for bad puns, terrible jokes, and lots of photos of rust! :P
