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.

Saw one today on the A595 just north of Cockermouth. Looked great in Gulf colours but I bet he wished he was driving my Evora :P. It was a nice replica and had a modern reg number too.

Wow!  That looks stunning!  What's the Superformance like to drive?  Must be better than the thing I drove.

It’s a very masculine car to drive, there’s weight to the controls in equal measure. Walks a thin line between road at race car that’s for sure.

There’s just something so right about how the GT40 looks. Always been one of my favourite cars & the only Ferrari imo than can shine a torch near it is a Dino.

Ive often looked at the Tornado replica but the closest I’ve ever got to owning one is a Scalextric model I had in my youth.

Good lunch with the bid 🤞

Made me laugh today.

Just received this email from a random hotmail address - here's a full sized screenshot.

I've seen poor spoofing attempts before, but this one really takes the biscuit :)

The blue Excel passed its MOT today, was due end of March but with various things it expired during lockdown before the 6m extension came into effect, so can finally use it a few times before the weather turns nasty.

After completing my garage build a little over three years ago work has at last started on properly sorting the driveway to it 😃

 

@tomcattom, you going to lay blocks or put gravel down?

Have you thought about Resin Bound instead as that is permeable, whereas Resin Bonded is not so.

^^^^^^^What he said^^^^^^^^ (he’s talking sense for once😄😄)
 

Had ours done in resin bound early summer. It is also said to be more durable than resin bonded since all the little stones are held together with the resin rather than just stuck on top of it.

Not a trick question @PaulCP - how does it handle your stationary front wheels grinding it when turned? My wife has that nasty habit...

😂😂😂

TBH Andy I can’t answer that.....................yet!

I have made it very, very clear to my Wife, Daughters and Son-in-Laws to make sure that they adopt driving best practice when turning on the driveway and ensure that their cars are moving when turning the steering. So far they have complied (although I do tend to stand on the drive watching them whenever I can😉)
The previous surface was loose gravel so they did develop a bad practice over the years😠

It is the one thing that the installers told me could eventually cause a ripple on the surface, although probably only if repeated continuously on the same spot.

You won't believe me, so I will start by saying that this did actually happen. 

Took Mrs Ps JCW in for rear pads and discs (MINI rear pads tend to need doing every time you have to fill the fuel tank). Main Dealer. I know one pad was down to the metal (just - she stopped driving it immediately we identified this) and there was lip on he discs such that I was sure a MD would say is too big. 

They actually called me to recommend that the discs could be cleaned up and were fine. Crikey!

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.
