After 5 years of hard work and graft my Downton mini fired to life this morning and sounded absolutely amazing, everything has been rebuilt so big smiles. Just lots of loose ends to finish off no

I ordered a new Lotus, having cancelled the Porsche. That makes me happy

My Dad came through his open-heart surgery successfully.

Couldn't agree more. Just bought another car and wifey is pissed I never told her or asked "permission" first. FFS, I'm 50 not 5 so don't need to ask permission to spend my own pocket money!

Never mind. She flies down to Windsor tomorrow for a long qeekend "girls" break so nothing stopping driving for smiles when I pick her ( the car that is ) up on Saturday morning. Just when I thought life couldnae get better......

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

This disturbs me. Please confirm your allegiance to a superior English specialist motor manufacturer. Or I will do a "Braveheart" on you...

Just don't paint your face blue with a white cross on it. You'll get your freedom from life if I see you like that!

Car number 2, Sylvia, was built in the deepest darkest wilds of Narfulk, if that helps.

Man up and show her who's Boss!  You may need to fill out one of these too.

So, I've either missed a post somewhere (likely) or you're keeping schtum about what you have bought (unlikely).

'Fess up Andy, what have you bought...?

Now now. Don't get too excited. It's just a little plaything but probably not what you'd expect. Will post up piccies tomorrow when I pick her up.

With "wifey" away on a girls weekend I'll have no excuse to not drive and get to know it and you'll see it before her too. Only thing she knows about it is that text message she found saying "it's yours!"

OK, so you either bought a can of bean's, or a Mini. I could say that could actually mean both, but as I have just bought a little runabout, I had better not as I would be shooting myself in the foot.

C'mon now guys. I just might get into a mini, old or new, but I'd need International Fire and Resuce with a tin opener to get out of it.

As for the Porsche jibe. You scoundrel!

There you go again Andy. Tin opener = can of Bean's. I rest my case. Or you could have been  really clever and gone for a WIDE body Westie.

Cool little mini John, never driven one but like the look of them. :thumbup:

Standard Cooper Dan, severely lack's some grunt but handles well. You know the difference when you stick your foot on the heavy pedal that it's just not their, especially when jumping from Wendy's tuned Elan, even the little Greenie that I have just restored has more pfft, and thats bog standard. But it's just a cheap little runabout for now and it at least look's the part.

Ah, remember that picture and that day. I was much slimmer and hairier in those days.

You suoper sleuths will never make it onto my crack International Cluedo team.

I mean, I have an Evora called Scarlet, so its colour is, er, red.

I've told you car 2 is called Sylvia so it's either purple like the rinse or......

..

 

Come on now, you'll get it....

 Ssssht Alan, I am going to get so much stick if that get's out. It has to be known as a mini, a British icon. Well that's my excuse. Of course I could always say it's a BMW and that's why it lack's grunt.
