Do the tyres actually move a full rotation when the car is moved? I'm concerned that there will be uneven wear if not


Yes, they do. I've checked them and they are fine as far as wear goes.

As for the floor getting dusty, it's carpeted and therefore would be hoovered once a week regardless of whether the car was there or not. Yes

Do you have a big 306-shaped tea cosy the car sits in to stop it getting chilly?

It sits in a 100% vacuum, and also at absolute zero to stop its molecules from moving excessively.

I can believe Stan does has a dedicated garage hoover.

But what I do not believe is that he uses it for the carpet.

    No, but it does sit under a nice bespoke made cotton cover which fits the car perfectly. Smile

    And just to be clear, you couldn't figure out why this might make you a target for mockery?

    You are in fact correct Dan, I actually use my industrial vacuum cleaner from my van to clean the carpets in the garage as it's more powerful. The vacuum cleaner in the garage is used for cleaning the interior of the car. Yes

    You have a specific vacuum cleaner for a car which literally does not get driven? Is your dandruff really that bad that you get in it to start it once a year and it then needs hoovering out?

    Well, the equipment in question was purchased 3 years ago when the car was being driven. It since stays in the garage and still has the same job title, although it hasn't been used for 18 months as that's as long as the car has not been driven for, therefore doesn't require an interior clean. Smile

    Do you roll the hoover in and out your garage too? Don't forget to check the wheels for damage of it just sitting there!

    Covers arent worth it imo....

    Maybe in this cse where its left under it a while.
    But the car should be IMMACULATELY clean as well as the cover. Other wise the grit and dirt will mess up the paintwork

    It was also unrelated to his stating that "Hitler went a bit far with a few things" but that his ideas were basically sound.

    It has nothing to do with that.
