Down with the kids.
Mot is due in a couple of weeks so I spent yesterday giving the spider a wash and a hoover. I didn't even polish and wax her but she came up well without it.
Took her for a spin yesterday and ended up at the local take away for my evening meal. There were a few teenagers hanging about and commented on how good the car looked.
One of the comments was "hey mister that car looks like a new old car. Its well smart!"
I thanked them for their comments and thought to myself here we go they are going to key it or something while I'm in the takeaway.
I kept an eye on it while I was waiting to make sure no harm came to her. They were looking around the car and we're pointing and chatting amongst themselves.
I came out and they were genuinely interested in chatting about the car and finding out more info about the spider and alfa's in general etc. I must admit I pre judged these guys wrongly. They all said that it was a class car and thanked me for showing it to them.
The second part of my story happened today on my commute home from work. As the sun was shining this morning I decided that I would take the spider. Driving through a small village on the way home I saw about 5 eleven year old boys and 2 girls. As I had the roof down on the way home I heard one of the boys shout to his friends
LOOK AT THAT LOVELY ALFA! He then shouted to me "Really cool car you have there!"
I gave him the thumbs up and a wave and they all waved back.
I had a grin on my face all the way home as I had a spirited drive through country lanes on the way home.
It's good to know that we all have a car that still has plenty of street cred and turns a few heads.
But hey I'm down with the kids man!
