    Default Something very unusual happened tonight...

    Nothing exciting, but seeing that I fixed the alternator tonight I thought I would just go for a drive.

    'So what?' you might say. Well the thing is, I honestly can't remember the last time I felt the desire to just get in a car and go for a drive. With no destination, or purpose other than to just drive...weird huh?

    The last car I felt so happy to own/drive was my Renault 5 GT Turbo phase II I loved that car, right up to the day it got stolen.

    It's a bit sad and if the missus catches me writing this I'll get a lethal ribbing, but I really do find ownership of the Veccy most rewarding. Even with all it's faults, and what cars don't have any of those?

    Anyway, I'm off to the window to gaze at the car in the glow of the street lamps...

    Driving for the sheer pleasure of it
    Wow...I have to say that very few cars I have had have come into that category.

    Mine are:

    '76 Mk2 Mexico 2.1 Pinto engined hillclimb / sprint car.
    '69 998 Mini Clubman. Tweaked up.

    Both great for the lanes of Devonshire

    Motorbikes..

    All of them from 100cc Yam's - 1340 E'glide Hogs

    What would I like?

    Caterham 7 please
    A 1.4 would be ideal Officer...honest

    Cheers

    Absolutely

    There is a little Honda CRX in our garage that hasn't seen the road in two years. We used to take her to the Jap car shows every year, occasionally we would also take her to the 1/4 mile. 14.8 was my best time in her - she's not standard

    But she was the last car that I would just go out in for a drive. Will have to put some pics up of her...
