    Oooh, if I were a rich man!! It's always a shame when someone sells, but sometimes things just have to move on. I've thought many a time about selling Misty since losing my position at the newspaper, but I just can't bring myself to do it. It's sometimes a struggle keeping her on the road, but I manage. I don't do anywhere near as many runs as I used to because of the cost. If I had bucks to spare, I'd by Valkyrie off you in a heart beat and run two TF's. She's still one of my favourites! If I hear of anyone who is looking for a good TF, I'll let you know. Someone is going to get one heck of a lovely motor!

    Hope you and Val are well

    Mike

    Hi Mike, just to let you know I might not be able to make it to Duxford tomorro as the clutch slave cylinder has gone on my TF! tonight on the M25! I am going to call the RAC first thing in the morning to see if they can get me going so I might be able to come but if I don't then that is the reason...Pretty gutted as I have been looking forward to this!

    Ahhh, Hi Andy
    And there was me searching for Bar Chord, Barchord, Bacord and just about anything else but without 2 r's. I'm sure you probably told me 2 r's, but I forgot!
    Great to see you and your dad yesterday. I'll put you down for Duxford. The weather really has turned...just hope it stays this way now
    Say hi to your dad for me
    Cheers

    Hi Mike,

    I'm well thanks, in fact I'm just about to px my ZT in for a new mini countryman. I had the master cylinder replaced and decided; I wanted something with a Warrenty!

    How's the family? I look out for your ZR and I think I saw misty not too long ago near Buldock?!

...yes, almost 18 month since my last blog entry, oh the shame of it!

Well, my 'fleet' now consists of Misty (TF) and a nice ZR 160, which has replaced my practical, but rather dull R25. The ZR is almost as much fun as the TF, but of course doesn't have the roof down option!

I'm looking forward to the Knebworth meet on 15 May and look forward to seeing anyone who can make it. It seems we'll have over 30 cars which will be nice. I am a bit miffed however that mods stopped...

Boxind day. It's some time since I last posted to my blog, so thought it's about time that I did!
I've settled into my new job quite well and find time for .org again after a hectic first few weeks, when people probably thought they had got rid of me

Earning power is way below my previous job and the purse strings have had to be well and truly pulled in. I took Misty off the road (selling is not an option!), but think I've found a way to get her back on in January ...

It all happened very quickly. I have a new job starting next week (with a weeks' training in Altrincham). The lorry driving job was starting very early and working loooong hours, leaving me little time for anything else (including time on .org). The new job is much more flexible and with far more reasonable hours. It's all to do with water management (legionnaires prevention etc) and sounds very interesting......very different to what I have done previously. I'm always up for learning something...

Well, my new job is going ok. I'm driving an 18 tonner around the Watford area (I hold an HGV licence as my old firm had a lorry in the fleet, which came under department). It's a bit different to what I used to do and I hope that I eventually find something else that pays a bit better!
I'm working 2 and a half hours longer each day than I used to, plus spending half hour more travelling to and from work each day. Effectively, that's 3 hours less 'spare time' every day, hence far fewer...

Well, having found a little work (and getting some income ), I've decided I can take a quiet exhaust no more. I want to be 'one of the boys' roaring through the tunnels

So, a TT Mk4 is on order. Really looking forward to having it fitted. As Neil says, you miss out on part of the 'British Sports Car' experience without having an exhaust that at least makes it sound like a sports car!
