Haha, we went last Tuesday and was supposed to avoid the monkey enclosure but I changed my mind...... We ended up getting stuck behind a stupid car blocking the road covered in monkeys attacking it, and then one decided to turn its attention on our car! :shock: We got off lightly, i only had to replace some windscreen trim. So glad I wasn't driving my car and it was my mother's :thumleft:

This was the car that blocked the road just before it was swamped around the corner. Looking at some videos we took, i reckon they were feeding the monkeys through a window opening.

We took a 3-day-old Jaguar X-Type Estate through the monkey enclosure, and they were having great fun hanging off the roof rails.

The BMW in front lost both windscreen wipers, the gutter strips, and the radio aerial.

Someone across the other side had a camper with two bikes on rack on the back, so pieces were going in all directions :shock:

Our rear wiper got pulled away from the screen, just before we left the enclosure, but it was undamaged.

We were really lucky to get away with being so stupid [-X

The last time we went to the monkey enclosure was probably ten years ago and I had an ac schnitzer E39 535i. Was very lucky. Got away with no damage but it was a very very hot day and they seemed a bit lethargic.

Back in my mid 20's I had an Orient Blue E34 lowered on Bilsteins with a set of OZ Ceres wheels amongst other mods 8)

Very similar to this one :D

That was my Ac Schnitzer E39 5 series Mark.... Had the 3.5 v8 which was the smallest capacity v8 and had roughly 235 bhp if i remember correctly.
Had a tan interior.

Unusual fact for these Ac Schnitzer cars..... They had a manual gearbox.... 5 speed.... This was the car that had built in Tv and its own massive car phone.. lol

Looks like your 5 series (R505VKL) is no more Azam....not been taxed or MOTd since 2011 :(

Same for my 5 series (L311KDP)...looks like mine bit the dust in 2006 :salut:

On a more positive note my 1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (N372JLT) is still on the road :yeah:

Yeah funny that Mark. I did check myself a few years ago. I sold it in 2006 or 2007 I think. Had a reasonable 91k on the clock. And was mechanically sound. Though rust was starting to resurface and I already had a few bits tidied up on it a few years earlier.

My Camaro had mainly plastic body panels (to keep weight down) so maybe that's why it's still going :P

I'd thoroughly recommend a V8 American muscle car as a daily driver if you haven't already tried it :lol:
