Well, It turned up yesterday - 53 plate 147 with a wicked 150 horse deseasil. Haven't stopped grinning yet.
I sold a discovery commercial that I havd been dragging around as my company transport - I run my own engineering company - and bought something small, sensible and economical. I seem quite incapable of owning ordinary cars.
The silver/green pocket rocket is in for a tow bar fit on Monday as I race a solo sailing dinghy. I am also thinking of upgrading the stereo as it seems a bit tired and sad.
Based on the Hants/Dorset/Wilts border and thinking I am at the start of a roller coaster with this little car! All in all it's been a good week (if you can ignore the dismal economic news) with the new Springsteen album and a new car.
Looking forwrd to getting and sharing advice and comment on this forum - if you lot decide you like me!
