I blame the credit crunch

As you all know by now, I'm currently spending an obscene amount of time perving over Mini Clubmans. And it was as I was doing this that I found another victim of the credit crunch.

Yes folks, not even The A-Team are immune to the financial and economic woes rocking the world at the moment. Not only have they had to downsize from their gas-guzzling Chevy van, they're having to sell their new means of transport too. 

At this rate I expect Mr. T will be whoring his jewelry on eBay soon. I pity the foo'…

Anyway, if you've ever dreamed of getting all like this…

…just click here and you can live the dream.

Awwww shit, I'm all nostalgic now. Maybe I should buy it?

It looks best from the front.

The A-Team show is yet another show I've never seen

Tim said...

Yeah, it does lo- wait a second.


I pity the foo'! Somebody get this man a boxset!

CyberPete said...

I will be sure to add it to my wishlist on amazon and add you so you can buy it for me.

What a great idea. Thanks!

tappdancing jesus!

how on earth did that fool miss the helicopter with those shots?
i'd completely forgotten the 'story' at the beginning. but that theme tune never leaves you.

Inexplicable DeVice said...

I totally never realised that there was a Cylon in the opening credits when Starbu- I mean, Face is shown.

Buy the mini A-Team MINI!!


Tara said...

Thank you for that clip, I used to watch The A-Team all the time with my parents. Dirk Benedict...dreamy. Gotta love that theme song too.

missy&chrissy. said...

yes, thanks for posting the clip - we haven't seen that in ages! it's funny to think about Mr. T selling his jewelry on ebay...he can probably support the entire A-Team if he does...

Tim said...

Cyberpete - To be honest I don't think you'd like it!

The Projectivist - Great, isn't it?

Inexplicable Device - How could you not notice the Cylon and Face's wry look!?

And no, I doubt very much I'll be buying the A-Team Mini!

Tara - It's an awesome tune, isn't it?

Missy&Chrissy - Mr. T advertises Snicker bars over here now!

WV: Swelen. Tee-hee!

CyberPete said...

Why do you think I won't like it, because you don't want to give it to me?


Tim said...

To be honest I'm not sure I'd like it now - I think it might've aged horrifically!

Like IDV.

BEAST said...

I am not sure what I think of the mini .Does it look good or is it just plain ugly , the only certainty is its over priced

watch*paint*dry said...

OH I loves it. Buy it. I would totally Howling Mad Murdoch it for ya!

M said...

What? Someone's never watched the A Team? Have I just stumbled across some strange parallel universe?

Howling Mad Murdock was my favourite - although my mate Tracey was really crazy about him and had a pet golfball just like his.

CyberPete said...

In my defense it aired on a channel we couldn't watch and it never ended up as part of the re-run schedule on other channels.

I'm sure it's quite dated now but it would still be fun to watch.

By the way Tim, thank you so much for introducing me to Lush. My face has never been this soft before. I feel like I was born again.

Tim said...

Inexplicable Device - The one with the pentapeptides? Are you Nadine Baggot?

Beast - Each to their own, but I luv 'em!

Watch*Paint*Dry - Would you wear the wedding dress?

M - I know! It was a vital par of my childhood! Did Murdoch have a pet golfball? He really was mad!

Cyberpete - My pleasure! It's a tad expensive, but well worth it, I think.

CyberPete said...

It's not too expensive. And it's absolutely amazing. I can't stop touching my face.

T-Bird said...

Da na naaa ne ne neeeeer!
Da na naaa na na na na naaaaaa!

Mmm. Lush. Also I used to love the crazy dude from the A-Team. Maverick? McClintock? Mack? Something starting with M? Anyway, the one Dwight Schultz played.

Get the mini van!

Tim said...

Cyberpete - Well it is over here!!

T-Bird - Howling Mad Murdoch! I've just had a thought - they should remake The A-Team with Katee Sackoff as Face! That'd give Dirk Benedict a real complex!!

watch*paint*dry said...

What? Who? Wedding dress!? Wha? Aaaarrrrrrrr shivers and sweats
You know what happens when people say 'wedding dress'.

tee hee
But for you... Anything!

But am going to have a lie-down anyhow.
