Bought my sister some Whitby oak smoked Kippers for her birthday once, she loved them. That was 20 odd years ago, and she still says " do you remember the time ........ "

I was 'given' a mini traveller estate [a real * woody*] by my dad. it had been my mum's car and she wanted something larger. As I had been surfing for a couple of years and wanted to go further afield it was brilliant.

It promptly blew a head gasket, cracked the block and cost me a fortune to repair.

so really it was the best present ever, and cost wise - the worst

Mind you I ran it for years afterwards, wish I still had it sometimes
I excell at not giving a shit

My old dear had one of them too!! Not a woodie tho, blue steel all the way. As a nipper I used to actually look forward to long journeys, which was all of them cos she's never been one for doing much over 40. I'd put the seats down and make a little den in the back/ catch up with some shuteye. Was never one of those "are we nearly there yet" kids. Good job really.

Best ever birthday pressie - well it hasnt arrived yet but this year I hit a quarter of a century and my 'rents have agreed to club together and buy me my first surf wagon. Something I can crash out in if need be, probably a diesel estate or maybe a small van... any ideas?

Before that - BMX, age 10. No question.
