bigsi Posted July 6, 2008 Report Share Posted July 6, 2008 today it pains me to say that it was my final drive of the lotus. i went for a little drive of the car and by the time i got home i was in absolute agony to the point of crying. i cant manage to get into the car without difficulty now and after a short while of sitting in the car i am great discomfort and pain. this afternoon the skies cleared and the sun shone for me to have the drive, it seemed someone up there wanted me to enjoy it as much as i could. i took a drive to the storey arms stop and then back home, i had planned to go further and prehaps call in at simon350's on the way but i couldnt manage it. over the past few months my joints have been getting worse and worse and after the scare i had the other week while driving its not getting better. tomorrow im going to be cleaning her up again and putting some stuff in the fuel tanks to stop the fuel seperating so that there is no problem with needeing to drain it. my brother will take it around the block for me once a week but that will be it. i now have to decide what to do, i am going to have a word with bibs this week hopefully and take it from there, but i have to be prepared to have to let the car go, i wont just let it sit and rot through lack of use. since i have got the car back i have sent every spare moment on the car cleaning and polishing, servicing and keeping it as mint as i can, proof of which is the fact it got through its mot the other week without any advisories and athe tester commenting on how clean it was underneath the car, so clean as to the fact it was the first time he never wore gloves to do a test. the other issue for us is the fact there is a nother baby due and woman keeps harping about it no longer being sensible , the fact i cant drive it and enjoy it as i normally would so its time to get something that will be easier for me to drive withought having to almost get on my knees to get in and out and contort myself to drive. i dont relly know what to say about it as its not an easy decision to make in light of everything and i have fought it all the way however i just cannot manage it anymore. i will keep you all updated as to what will happen. simon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
