Well, my v6 gtv hasn't done a lot of miles lately (500 in 12 months)
I took her out for a 30 minute blat this afternoon - the joy, dry roads, not yet salted here - pulled into a very busy petrol station near Brize Norton, surrounded by golfs, Audi estates, kia piccanto's.....
Whilst I was paying, I looked outside to see several people, crawling over the car (not literally) - she certainly commanded attention of the services personnel.
Got back to the car, fired her up and had a thumbs up from one of the bystanders. Gave it a few more beans than one might usually do on a petrol station forecourt and exited
In amongst the plethora of modern cars, the gtv certainly looks like something special, something sharp and certainly something more fun than the average euro box.
On the grounds of battery charging, I'm going to do the same run tomorrow, if dry, to pick up a chocolate bar..
