Excellent, because the last time I tried to drove a 'rari' on to the drive I caught the bottom of it.

Could of been worse, my mate could of just spent a whole day rebuilding the bottom of the front bumper before it went up for sale, oh wait there my mate....

Some bad news!

I have sold our Elan Sprint. Not feeling the best about that as it has been part of our life for a long time and I am going to miss it quite bad I think...

I will be looking for another Lotus but a +2 car this time. It has more space and bigger doors which should hep us getting into and out of it. We will see what comes along. It was just daft money sitting in the Garage and not getting used. The occasional show was all last year. MOT to MOT the car did under 300 miles.

The little Vespa has moved on only a little due to our Mo Ho jaunts. 5 weeks on the mosel last time. That does not help in fixing up cars.

Here's a couple of pic's of the little Vespa. Floor is in on the drivers side and passengers side about to be started (I ran out of Mig Gas!)

All the best folks.

We are VW nuts so have a 1971 bay window camper and a 1973 (one owner before us) beetle.


We use the camper during the summer months/local trips and VW rallys (bit thirsty at 17mpg!) and have recently started pulling an Eriba Puck which our 11 year old son and the dog use.


The Auto Trail is for longer trips and in the colder months (we camp 2 weekends out of 4 all year round)


Would love to get a VW Karmann Ghia but as we need to rent storage for all the other vehicles something would have to go and I can't bear to part with any..................yet

You will have noticed from my avtar that I have a 1938 BSA Scout Series 6c. It is a 4 seat sports tourer with front wheel drive and independent front suspension; not bad for 77 years ago. What I need is a trailer so I can tow it behind the van!

Hi
Always had an interest in classics cars, when they were known as old bangers!
Now the garage consists of:
1955 Austin Healey 100 Le Mans Spec
1965 Ford Mustang fastback
1986 Sierra Cosworth
1998 BMW Alpina B3 convertible
1998 Lotus Elise

Have had some great road trips with the tent in the back - Healey to Croatia and Le Mans Classic, Mustang to Spa Classic, Alpina to the Stelvio Pass and Italian Lakes - happy days!

Smiles per gallon
Duncan

What have you got ? I have a swb GP1 that I restored a few years ago.

They are brilliant fun.
