I go to Prescott every summer, if the sun’s shining you just can’t beat it! :001_smile:


My very first car was a Tartan Red Mini Cooper – 1380cc! After that I had a little blue Mini 1000HL. I moved up in the world after that and bought a white 1972 MG Midget which I ran till it fell to bits! That was replaced with a British Racing Green 1974 MG Midget – that was a lovely little car, I sold it when I want up to Cumbria to work with the National Trust. I ran (don’t laugh) a Fiat Panda for years after that – it was a cracking motor and want like the clappers.


In my later (more mature) years I’ve had a blue Peugeot 106 Rallye, a white 106 Rallye and now I’m running my Discovery, which has run faultlessly for nearly 4 years!



I’m desperate to get something nippy again…..
