Genius! Nice one Rob!
It's a shame I had to park in a dirty puddle to get the angle I was after in relation to the sign. :roll:

Very nice Andrew I just saw that on your account and thought it was yours , do you get to drive it as much as you like or does the boss take the car out ?


Here’s what Marie’s drives around and when I am good I can drive ( it’s the same colour as yours I think ?

Hi Jason, yes it's my car. I was just driving it back from Pembrokeshire after having an MOT and stopped for a cheeky snap.

Does that mean if you're a bad boy you have to drive the Capri instead?
The Mercedes does look comfortable Jason, I bet it covers long distances really well. And it seems to attract the birds too :xd: .....

Have always had a soft spot for the MR2 yours still looks brand new , out of interest when will you be able to put the MR2 on classic insurance does it have to be 20 years or 30 years ?

Yes our bus is so good we have it set up with 5 seats and two captain seats up front and it’s the long wheelbase with a powerchair in the back and the dogs box, picnic table and chairs so all round good vehicle.

I don't know, but I think it must depend on the car and also the insurance company. My brother insures his Alfa Spider on a classic policy and it is only 19 years old.

That’s interesting as classic car insurance seems a lot better then normal car insurence , so your brother has a Alfa you kept this quite . Lovely cars I have never driven one yes been a passenger in a few somesay they work or don’t work but that’s cars for you . So any pictures ?
Also was showing Dad yesterday your car pictures did leave a comment on one strange picture but it’s so good almost like reading a book as we did have to keep checking what they were almost like playing a xmas game guess the car . Must had been at it for at least a hour . Pitch there for dragons den mate . :cool:
