    Hey , just thought i`d take 5 minutes to say hi to everyone , so ..................HI !

    Sold my E36 M3 vert of 6 years early this summer because of lack of use & regretted it within seconds so I decided to find another plaything and ended up with the infamous Tim Shaw " 50 pence " car . Like it or loathe it , it`s fun to drive and it has rekindled my love affair with the whole BMW scene , so see you all soon !

    Tim Shaw, master of self publicity.
    He's the one where after a fling, his missus sold his Lotus on ebay for a few quid.
    Tim hits the headlines.

    He also reckoned he could mod up a car for next to nothing, so got a whole bunch of companies to give him free stuff, whilst mysteriously become a co-director of CA Automotive for a while. Maybe he still is.

    He also had some competition where he was locked in a box underground, and if you could guess where he was, you'd win a load of money.

    It turned out that no one was really interested, and he spent a month buried in a box with the rest of the world getting a well deserved rest.

    It's near the bottom, after about the 5th "controversy" header...

    Tim Shaw was a DJ on Kerrang Radio and also a presenter on 5th Gear , and I also believe he`s now a fellow director of C A Automotive . Anyway due to comments he passed on his radio show his wife sold his then Lotus on Ebay for 50p . As a challenge he pledged he`d build himself another car for this 50p by begging / blagging all the bits needed and this car was the outcome , infact it cost him 39p in the end . There was a episode of Pulling Power made about it . Do a search on YouTube and use the key words " tim shaw bmw pulling power " And you should find it .
