What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Unfortunately we have space issues for parking; can't park end-on as you do. That limitation means SWMBO says I have to sell K before getting another. :roll: It's a chicken and egg situation for Solomon, if you'll forgive the mixed metaphor...…….. :bh (I still really want an emoji signifying hysteri...

Thinking about it are you Dave ? - gets a bit lonely having the only Sabre in the NE I was tempted, not arf, but as remarked, I haven't received the inheritance yet - could be months. :shock: A bit torn because although Kirsty's not the only SS1 in the NE, I very rarely see others at shows we're at...
