Washed it and drove it around for a bit in the sunny evening with the roof back.

Aaaaaw, what a smile it brings to the face. They have such a lovely motor don't they. Almost torquey, which is a funny thing to be saying but it just really suits the car.
No idea when I last drove it, ages ago. I still cycle to work and anywhere else I can, and my other two babies have needed my focus for a bit.

Could never imagine selling this brilliant little buggy though. I would still trust it enough to go on a long journey tomorrow. I do take tools in this one when I go places. I don't need them, but you know..

Fired up the buggy today. Judging by my last post it's been two months since its moved. Oh dear.

I had the return of another car from long term bodyshop hibernation to deal with and the fettling of that to distract me.

The buggy fired right up after all that time, well, on the second go at cranking at least. Washed it, roared around in a bit to clear its lungs.

Swapped the speedo and rear door retaining strap. (Thanks Daras!)

Changed the mirror mounting blocks. (Thanks Daras again!)

Happy days.
