Ok folks, i need your knowledge and help.
It is looking increasingly like we will not be staying long term in Oz. I may be back this summer.
to cure the depression of no longer living the life in Bondi, i am going to buy a cheap car and do a euro trip before i have to go back to work.
Something along the lines of heading out towards turin, and then down the coast to Monte Carlo etc. Route is the easy bit.\
The hard bit is what motor to do it in.
quick browse on piston heads classifieds.... and possibles are
MX5 MK1 - a few low mileage good examples on there. my dad had one when they 1st came out and i know its a great reliable motor.
BMW Z3 - saw the one they had on the middle east top gear special
Original Porsche Boxster - surprisingly cheap and a lot around with decent history.
Fiat barchetta - left hand drive too good for there but not here
any other suggestions people?

I know a few people on here have an interest (and rightly so) in old war stuff so i though i would share this great story.
Becka's (my girlfriend) Grandad was part of the Arctic Convoy, as featured in the documentary Jeremy Clarkson covered a while back.
He has already recently been sent a medal from Russia to add to his collection, however, he was recently written to by Vladimir Putin offering him a further medal from the Russians for the efforts in that Mission.
The event took place yesterday at the Town Hall in Oxford and they were presented with the medals. The service was for the surviving troops and the family of those no longer with us.
A really proud day for all of Becka's family and for me. Makes us feel a million miles away now in Australia and not being able to be there.
Such a nice man, but like many of the people of this era, very humble about what they id for our country and does not talk about any of the memories/nightmares from this time.
Well done Bert.
