The essential guide to IT transformation

Those readers looking for a new set of wheels with a bit of Chav street cred need look no further than the current eBay auction for a Burberry-branded Chavmobile - the "original (one ‘n’ only) Goldie Lookin Chain Chavalier", as the suitably chavesque blurb puts it.

Mobile Burberry: get it while you canWe make no apologies to non-Blighty Reg readers who have not the faintest idea why such a vehicle might be desirable. Suffice it to say, if you're from Sheerness or Chatham or Sidcup, this "rude cav" will most certainly fit the bill for a bit of "razzin' ‘round the fields and that".

Interested? Here's a bit of background:

She’s a Vauxhall 1991 1.8 GL 5-speed manual, on a J-plate and comes complete with a bit of GLC interior gold, a few pieces of choice leisurewear and some litter (lotto scratch cards, original hubcaps, bottles of Carlsberg) we still have the back bumper but that’s likely to be kept as a memento for what she was. Oh, and how could I forget, it’s got full central locking and power steering, the boot wont open properly though. It’s as bent as George Michael. Don’t be fooled though, there’s still plenty of room for a few bottles of White Lightning.

Enough said. Bidding currently stands at £1,200. Chavs have seven days to make their pitch, and should note that this is an auction for "serious bidders only, the price of the final bid will be expected to be paid, so no time wasters or clarts". You have been warned. ®
