I agree - an early heater. Probably factory fitted on the Volvo given it's Nordic origins, it is hard to believe that heaters were often an optional extra on home produced cars until well into the '60s.

All right.

Imagine those from West Berkshire decide to meet those from Leicestershire. Till here, everyone follows. They decide to have a pint in Banbury. Well.

If I am invited too to meet some new friends, you may leave me the time to join the party, because from Grenoble, it means at least 12 hours of forced drive, hairs in the wind...

Not sure to find anyone completely dry at the appointment...

Fret ye not, V70D, I'm in Annecy every six weeks or so, we can take a beer together at the Capitain Pub...providing they don't serve that awful 'organic' Savoyarde Biere that seems to be popular at the moment. May be we'll stick with a good quality Gamay Rouge to aid digestion of an even better Tartiflette

Well,

For me, after Grenoble' s suburbs, it's the colonies... And to drink a beer surrounded by these yellows of Annecy, no way !

But with a real English gentleman, I'm ready to drive over there... Judas also used to have principles, but once he made an exception, if I do remember my roman history in ten lessons.

In addition, I need parts for my Bolido, so why not join the useful to the pleasant ?

When will your next trip take place ?

(could you ask, then, the webmaster for a sticker of the club ? )
