Looking good Todd,

Is it fuelled by petrol or dirty farmyard diesel ?

A moments silence please for the moving on of The Tod-mobile.

Nice move Tod, I personally don't care what it runs on, it looks great. Colour really suits it.

She's firkin gorgeous Todd

You kept that on the down low eh?. Best get yourself to a meet sharpish for a Hughesy inspection

Did you sell the 156 privately or trade her in?

Most importantly what engine have you got in there? Looks like a 2.4SV?

The Swiss let you have one plate and multiple cars, after all you can only drive one at a time,

Todd that Missano Brera is Bravo on a superb 156 replacement

Mmmmm soot lovely

The 5 pot diesel is a great combo for real world

I hope you have many happy miles, i'm sure you will, it's great when a car knocks you sideways and you just have to have it. Sorry I mean Need

Mmm 8C or V12Vantage

Jon I've had my hand down the back of my sofa all day and still cant find anything that remotely resembles 125 big ones

I think those sort of sofas are only found in bank vaults Alternatively I believe under the mattress is a viable alternative.

Enjoy the Brera, look forward to seeing at the Fountain or a supermarket car park
