  • What's in the Box Dougie ?

    From Autocar website


    It's not every day that a 1.8-tonne, car-sized wooden crate arrives at Vauxhall's Luton headquarters via air freight from Melbourne, Australia, but one day this week, that's exactly what happened. You're looking at a picture of that crate; there are more pictures like it in our gallery.

    Right now, we can't tell you what was in the air-freighted container; Vauxhall has sworn us to secrecy until Monday morning at 8.00am, when all will be revealed.

    Consider this, though. Melbourne is home to Holden, General Motors Aussie business arm, from whom Vauxhall had been waiting for a replacement for its 400bhp Monardo VXR since that car was discontinued last year.

    Autocar happens to know that what's in this crate cost £12,000 to fly all the way from one end of the globe to the other, so you can assume that it must be something Vauxhall wants to get hold of pretty urgently.

    We also know that there are several hundred more crates whose contents are almost identical to this one currently on an ocean-going vessel somewhere at sea, bound for the UK.

    And here's the good bit. Although Vauxhall won't confirm this until next week, you will be able to put your name against one of those crates for less than £35k, and if you do, you'll end up six litres, eight cylinders, 414 rip-snorting rear-driven horses - and not two, but four doors - better off.

                if he didnt die by road trian then it would have been old age as skippy was filmed in the late 60's may have had a few acid trips in his time before retiring in the early 70's or served in vietnam as a GI.

                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: What have you got there, Skip?
                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: Why on earth would you kill this?
                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: Alright, alright, I know you didn’t. It’s been killed with a stick.
                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: Where did you find it, Skip?
                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: No, don’t bother Sonny, he’s busy doing his classes. You and I will handle this.
                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: Hasn’t got anything to do with the schoolteachers, has it Skip?
                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: Did they kill it?
                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: It didn’t bite one of them, did it Skip?
                    Skippy: Tchk tchk tchk.
                    Jerry: Ah, no! Must be real panic going on out there. Come on, Skip, you’ll have to show me where they are.
