  1. I wore the Pumas for most of my 2000 mile holiday. They are as comfortable as a pair of slippers.
  2. Just replaced my knackered driving Pumas with a new pair of driving Pumas. They are the only things I can get to the left of the clutch.
  3. Kind of relevant to this topic: We are going to have to sell the MIL's Renault Twingo soon. About 4-6 weeks ago I looked at for an idea what it was worth. They quoted £4,160. Today I had an email asking if it was still for sale, so I looked again. Now they quote £5,000. Not a bad investment at the moment!
  4. I didn't think I had, but there you go! Extra Strong mints. Much lighter.
  5. It has never occurred to me to drive a cup of coffee around the country unless it is in a flask in the boot along with my picnic.
  6. The one outside my house had a delivery yesterday. So, if you want some be here by 07:00 tomorrow when the queue will only be 6 cars long. But he only has E10! I filled up yesterday on the A34 at Sutton Scotney. £96 for 3/4 of a tank. Been down to Goodwood today for a funeral. So still got more than 3/4 left. The M&S on the A303 had plenty (petrol and diesel) when Deb filled up today.
  7. OK. Run it up the flagpole..... 12th October? Seven Stars, Stroud?
  8. I had a car stolen in Johannesburg once. The tracker was found by the side of the road in Soweto. The car was never seen again!
  9. I am 6'2" ish and fit perfectly in my G TE. You are quite welcome to drive it if you can get to Hampshire. I already have an S2 elise, so know what they drive like, thanks.
  10. No idea, @DaveC72. Missed the last one and currently in France until Muntil (unless they change the rules on re-entering the UK. Not seen any sign of a meet on here.
  11. Mine does exactly what the OP describes. I always reset the trip meter and fill up at about 360 miles.
  12. "There are only two things you can believe in a newspaper - the date and the price"
  13. It is. You.must have been early. I was just getting the overnight dust off!
  14. A friend who lives in Poole wants to go to Birmingham. He suggested that they go in another mate's Jag EV. Second mate declined. His Jag won't make it in one charge! (My Esprit will on one tank!)
  15. Yep. That is mine. What made me happy today? To finally stop talking about cars after spending three days showing off my two babies! My voice can now get a rest.
  16. What a lovely thing for her to do. Must show that she considers you her dad. If you consider her your daughter and love her like one, why wouldn't you?
  17. Mine was the silver series 2 Elise. The Evoras were on the Lotus Drivers Club stand near the Sporting Bears.
  18. Say hello @windymiller I am on the Club Lotus stand!
  19. A propos lawnmowers: I bought a battery flymo last year for various reasons. I went to use it at the start of this year and the batteries were dead. Flymo are unable to supply replacements and I can find no alternative. So, £300 up the Swanee and had to buy another. Went for a Gtech. They, at least, list replacement batteries (at a third of the price of the whole mower). Imagine when you scale it up to cars!
  20. Thanks for all your good wishes. I will give you the gruesome details of the op when we next meet! I have now given up Doom Bar and will stick to Ringwood, Pete.
  21. Thanks mate but the surgery was only last Tuesday and I still feel pretty rubbish.
  22. Sorry, guys. I cannot make tomorrow. Since the last meet I have had surgery for a detached retina and cannot drive at present. I may be in France next month, so, see you in October!
