My Spider saved Christmas
My wife had decided that we spend Christmas "visiting" so this involved journeys to Birmingham, Stratford and Colchester, a full weeks trip. So, imagine the scene on Christmas morning, after all the arranging, after we loaded her car full of cases and pressies to find a flat tyre.
Immediate panic. Out of the garage comes the Spider. Drop out all the stuff from her car, drop all not desperately needed stuff, fill Spider to the gills and off we go.
Had a great trip around the country, each travelling day was fine weatherwise, Spider happily cruised along never missing a beat and when we got home yesterday after 5 hour journey I felt fresher than I've ever felt driving different cars on that journey.
Well done the Spider
