If your next-door neighbour has just bought a thrusting silver 4x4 with tints, alloys and bull-bars and spends all of his time waxing it suggestively on the front drive just to make sure everyone else knows just how inadequate they are in the vehicle department, then eBay may have the answer.

Yup, for just a little over 6k (current top bid 6,100), you can snap up Avro Vulcan XL391 - complete with engines - just as long as you're prepared to move it from Blackpool airport where it is currently menacing passers-by. Details, it must be said, are sketchy. No indication as to whether it's got tax and MOT or what insurance class you might be expected to pay before taking it for a spin. The vendor simply notes that there is no postage on this particular item.

Still, it must be worth a punt - despite its reportedly less-than-perfect condition. After all, it's all very well revving your chav Rav-4 on a Sunday morning but how's that going to compete against the might of four Rolls Royce Olympus 301s? We rest our case.

The auction for Vulcan XL391 has five days left to run. Those wishing to keep up with, and ultimately blow away, the Joneses, should have a shufti HERE (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2979&item=5530699633&rd=1)

I might have been interested if there were a pair. One on each side of the front gate. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

No more 6K... it's already up to over 2.5 million :eek:

AIRCRAFT DE-COMMISSIONED BY R.A.F. NO ARMAMENTS. WILL NOT FLY. What? No armaments? What else would you buy such a thing for?
