I would have been tempted but the thought of a drive down and back would have been a headache.. I be interested in what the drive is like now with 13” wheels also what tyres are you running on .

Hi Andy,
What's going on here? One minute you're selling the pepperpots, the next we hear of it they're on your car!
It looks superb, by the way. You can't beat a nice set of 'pots. :D

Looking good Andy, even made the sun come out. Nice long drive you've got there. Hope you've settled in.

Thanks Rob,
Not the best pic, but it was so bright I could see hardly anything on the phone screen :)

Yes it's a long drive although quite narrow but better than nothing.

Settling in ok, the Mrs was stripping wallpaper so thought I would get outside for an hour :cool:

Hi Andrew,
Even more since I got it out yesterday :)

We live in a close with a turning circle 30 yards away, but without tax it's not worth the risk as tempting as it was!

Bit of a bugger to start from cold yesterday, hasn't ran for just over 10 weeks but usually starts better than that. Even the negative battery nut was slightly rusty when I went to connect battery. Maybe living near the sea the salt air causes different issues :?

Rolled out the Capri for its sixth anniversary with me & ran it up to temperature, shame the drive is the furthest it’s going at mo, roll on when all this is over. Hope everyone is well.
