Boxing Day - so time to sort the garage. 
 

Spitfire moved

Pink car moved onto ramp - gear linkage bush replaced. It was really poor to select gears - and like all figaros the linkage bush had long since vanished.

pink car dumped back in the barn - spitfire in front of it awaiting collection in a couple of days.

finally - I’ve got two Lotus back in the garage

What I really need now is an Elan..... off to ask the missus 

So I actually said to my son the other day ( mother in the shower) I really want a 410 Sport in Military Grey but I will need to sell the Esprit. Now discussing stuff with a 14 year old is usually a b

Can’t beat the sheer practicality of the Evora

Evora ran out of mot just before xmas - so today she’s booked in. Not liking the looks of the weather64776890-212E-4124-B720-C3E9C2FFD98E.thumb.jpeg.60bfa8cbf3fc554a8f09cac35753a013.jpeg

Hope your spare tyres are mud grippers, that also explains the chickens in the video 

We don’t mention the video 🤭

I’ve only seen proper snow down my way four times in the last 45 years! 

We have lived west of exeter for almost 13 years and only had a few days where the roads were really difficult and 2 days when we stayed in due to some steep roads near us. my parents lived in dawlish (where the trains have difficulty with the sea), from 1986 and they have seen even less snow than exeter.

We’ve had some pretty special snow levels up here - most winters we get a little bit - every few we get a right proper dumping

So after much looking at mine today by another enthusiast the list of imperfections on mine is as follows.

Tyres - due a change - I have 4 winters sat waiting to go on.

brake discs - fronts maybe need a change sometime soon.

passenger window - it’s trying to drop - needs assistance - so I’ll spray that tomorrow

ppf - one small area on passenger side rear where I got a bit keen with the steamer

boot - leak defo present - I’m on the case.

two wheels could do with a small refurb - bloody pot holes

stereo - it’s shit 😆

 

not bad for a nearly 12 year old car.

Well decision made - chaps just viewed it and left a deposit. 

Sadly this looks like it brings my Evora adventure to and end.

Today - I feel genuinely sad - I will miss this car. It’s been fun though.826113A4-CA1E-493E-8BBB-C2BE65E05FFF.thumb.jpeg.8fede531b176312c0fb61343f3947094.jpeg

That’s it going. One thing is for sure - I’d take the car back.
