Wow. Does look good, as ever :D

Are you allowed to park on the pavements or is that a french drive through fast food type restaurant ? :lol: :roll:

I knew mine was 50 this year and your posting encouraged me to look it up - first registered on 17th of this month - close.

Thanks Mikey.
'Allowed' to park on pavements, no.
So, er what? this is France.
Actually I am not parked on the pavement, I am on the terrace of my local, who moved the tables out of the way without even asking.
That's hospitality 8)
Peter, we await the photos of the birthday celebrations :D

We will be in our MB - Coupe would make it no problem but could cause accidents with people looking at it and not watching the traffic.

No to the international - then on to Austria. Already had six weeks in New Zealand and our resources have been stretched to the limit unfortunately.
