I Actually Drove It Today

25 posts in this topic

After doing all the jobs round the house I managed to spare half hr to get it running and take it for a few mile run.

Feels very twitchy on the uneven roads but stick it in 3rd to overtake dawdlers doing 35 in a 60 and they don't see where you went.

Need to find more time to have more fun.

Repairing roof tiles or cleaning out chickens doesn't give you as bigger buzz. :)

I have also been out today. New wheels/tyres fitted. A little uneasy at first. Dropped the pressures and it now feels a lot better.

 

Now only more miles will reveal good or bad?

 

Jody's also looked well today.

Managed a run yesterday (as far as the MoT station and back). Only 1mile each way but even that made me grin !

 

Oh, and it passed the MoT as well (which is surprising, given the smell of fuel from the exhaust...)

The joys of a silver car!

 

Good little run out. A bit slippy for me with new rear tyres though.

Me too. I nipped out for a quick blast in the Exige this afternoon and ended up doing a 60 miler - suuuuuuperb. Roll on Spring and Summer for some proper road trips!!

Yep had to be done...top down...full chat:-)

Just MOTed and dismayed that haven't managed 3k in 12 months.

Still saved £50 by dropping my insurance limit from 5k to 3k.

Best way to make the sun shine for the rest of the year;-)

What is the status of yours? Hopefully not too long till you get it back.

 

Haven't a clue Alan, gonna ring Gav this afternoon see if he's heard from the insurance company.

The only shame is that the sooner I get it back the sooner it goes up for sale.

I got near mine walking through the garage to get some tools... For a moment, I got to enjoy the sun glistening off a flank.
