Thread has been tidied up and all the derailing posts hidden.

For me, I'm hoping the National can go ahead this year - even if it is reduced in scope on last year with only a single day event and no entertainment.

Hopefully some of the local car clubs can hold some of their events later in the year as there are always some interesting cars at those that roll out for one or two days of the year.

Roll on 2022!

James

Well i was out and about in my 760 yesterday, collecting an ebay item that i've been watching since December. Couldn't put a bid on as it was collection only in south Essex.

Finally now the travel restrictions have been lifeted i was able to bid and win said item and collect yesterday.

Quite a pleasant (if unnecessarily long drive due to Google Maps "rerouting" me for no good reason) drive down, even managed to find a twisty A road to put the old beast through her paces on the bends (handled surprisingly well), return journey not so nice, first the sat-nag app tried sending me to the M25 then M11 - not chance at 3pm on a Thursday!

Managed to alter it to bring me back mainly on A roads one of which sadly was the A14 but in fairness, an uneventful run.

Just nice to be on the open road again!

Planning to take the new car up North in June. Couple of great mountain roads I've got my eye on in the highlands.

Until then, just watching Pilot Assist try to kill me on the commute. You think it would give some sort of warning that it's lost the lines and is, therefore, giving up completely.

I'd be tempted to switch Pilot Assist off if it does that! Plenty of other "motorists" willing to try and kill innocent victims with bad driving without having a so-called "driver aid" trying to kill you as well!

Hope you enjoy your "Highland Fling" in June!

An alternative would be a wedding car, but then, you may end up having to marry one of the attendees in order to hold a reception. I think a hearse is favourite.
When I was stationed in Singapore during the late 60's, the station hearse was an old Austin K9 3 ton truck.
