    Christmas seems like an eternity away, it's bright, sunny and a little moist underfoot some days but what is it that dictates the time when zeddy is let loose for another year?

    When the frosty nights have passed and the roads are salt free?

    When the weather forecast and Daily Express predict a heatwave?

    When a certain date on the calendar has been reached?

    When you get bored?

    Well ...... being a hardy beast, ours live outside.
    However, the hard top goes on and off to coincide roughly with the BST/GMT clock changes.
    And If we get a bright sunny day in between, it's not unknown for the HT to appear on the garage floor :coolsteer)

    I use mine all year round too, although I try my best not to drive the Z1 in the snow! I was once told: "Not driving your car because you dont want to put miles on it is like not sleeping with your wife so she's in better shape for her next husband", which at first made me :)) then :bulb
