Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Citroen 8 in Nerja along with older 'normal' cars (lack of salt I guess on roads) and this weird Renault, not sure where the patient was meant to go !! :shock:

That's okay, Jim - I was out in the Peak District with a friend of mine, anyhow - she was driving a little silver Mazda MX3 which I sold cheap to her......it's not the V6 (which must be the smallest production V6 ever...) but it's a brilliant little car for 21yrs. of age - & very rare! Nicely styled little thing as well...

My turn to apologise as I was going to chat with you down at Prescott but you had your head in the footwell of the grey coupe & I thought it best not to disturb you. I did have a very brief chat with Mr. Oakes Senior & Mr. Oakes Junior, though...

I saw a red MGB Roadster, on a quiet lane.......&, a bit further on, a white V12 E-Type coupe on the aforementioned trip out...On Friday a Riley 1.5 going down Limekiln Bank in Stoke, driven by a young, bearded gentleman &, on the way home, around Wetley Rocks, I was flashed by a nice, green P1800 Volvo...

B plate 1.2 NOVA, in red (not pink) looked 'original' and unmolested, can't see anybody bothering to re-spray one , but you can never tell . . . .. . :-)

Would the shorter V4 make a Capri less nose heavy?

A tidy silver 80s Astra GTE on the Brockworth bypass this morning, then a nice white 1970 911 (no arches or tea trays :D ) on the Cirencester road.
