Well that's a Big Un just like my misses said to me last night in bed....OK I was sleeping but hey its a compliment, even if it was in a dream......they all mount up to stoking the fire in the ego.

Also can you imagine what would happen if the windscreen wipers got stuck??? you would have to go outside with them magnetic boots on like in Star Trek and a brolly to stop your hair getting blown about.

I didn't actually see it, I was 'busy' when it flew past and the hundreds of pairs of eyes were looking at it.

Anyone looking for a car stereo?
