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

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

My Dad came through his open-heart surgery successfully.

I’ve actially had one of them - utter shit - but like a 2cv strangely satisfying to drive. Smoked like a sixties steam train on start up every morning

This is the high tech super duper upgraded version of the Sherpa, I had a Somerset mustard yellow version, it was the ugliest van available at the time but beggars can't be choosers , it did have character and the A series OHV had that wonderful farting sound on overrun.

@swindon_alan it isn’t sadly. I do however need a reliable tool box to take to site with me - and since the Vauxhall is now having its third engine installed under warranty - I’ve had little or no choice but to fork out for a decent truck

After the failed attempt to purchase a car last weekend. This weekend, I've managed to purchase one that's arguably more suitable. Virtually no difference in price, extra c35HP, extra level of trim (X pack instead of just Titanium) with pretty much every factory fit option that was available, and despite me believing I'd still got to fork out for a towbar, it has a factory-fit electronic retractable one (that reminds me, must find out where the electrics plug is and whether 7 or 12 pin). Only challenge is that it's from London so didn't get any decent runs to keep the DPF etc clear, so I'll have to rectify that with some longer drives under load.

 

Edit: Buying this type is car is not one I enjoy, i don't like driving MPVs, but my Mother has been told her knee needs to be replaced, she's not going to have it done, so  normal saloon/ estate car isn't viable.

That's why my wife got rid of her Accord and bought a Skoda Karoq. Easier to get into with her hips and I have to admit, it is a really nice car.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Beautiful sunny day watching the first round of the Scottish Rally Championship at Knockhill. Much happier than discussing bloody vans!

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!

Discovering that the mystery knock my Esprit had developed on the rear today was because the wheel nuts on one back wheel weren't 'quite' tight. Car maintenance 1.01, make sure you tighten the wheel nuts dumbass ..😳
