So - the wife and kids were out all day, what could I possibly do for 2-3 hours? Checked the oil, tyres blah blah blah and put £20 in the tank and off I went. Had a great time too. drove all around the southern downs area of Arundel, Slindon, Petworth and eventually ended up at Goodwood. Saw a nice Navy blue Mk1 near Chichester and exchanged frantic waves. Had a pee in a bush, bought a soggy McDonalds burger and went home. Nothing much to report but it was great just getting out and having a thrash about.
Bloody hell- another looney! And I thought it was just me. Here's what I had in mind some months ago but I've changed my mind now - just because I want a turbo eventually but want it it look stock (Wolf in sheeps clothing type of thing) I'm a typical 45 year old boy who can't make his mind up. It's true we never grow-up.
My front plate is 30cm x 8cm and I got it from Craig's Plate (UK company) but it is not legal. I have the proper one in the boot for when it gets MoT'd next month. Loads of police have seen it, one even took a piccy of the car when he strolled over to chat to me. Have'nt been pulled for it yet, but rest assured there will come a time when a ginger bearded motorcycle cop with a blob-stropped wife pulls me over and dishes me with a ticket. It's a great size plate because it sits nicely in the grill mouth and does'nt restrict air-flow too much. Cost about ?15.00 as I recall. Took 2 days to arrive from Ireland as its classed as a 'Show Plate'.
