    ...so it would have been rude not to go out for a drive. A late decision as the weather forecast was good for today. It's been a long time due to the very poor weather recently but we did 80 top down miles today stopping for lunch in Wetton and getting home before it got dark:thumbsup:. Poor Zed looks like she's been on a rally stage now though :(, a job for tomorrow I think.
    Pictures to prove we were out...

    A bit of snow was still about in the shadows. IMG_003.jpg IMG_004.jpg IMG_005.jpg

    A lovely sky tonight, may have to go out again tomorrow;) IMG_006.jpg

    Hard core zed nutters :thumbsup:.
    Mind you if I wasn't busy making my van more secure from thieving members of society, we would have been out as well, might even have bumped into you ;).

    Great pics as usual Dave :snaphappy:.
    Was Pauline sporting her tea cosy and electric blanket ?.

    Got to love winter top down driving, my favourite. I’ve only been able to sneak in some drives to the office via ‘the long way’ but taking what I can when I can.

    It’s great on a clear evening, but hard to watch the stars and steer at the same time...

    Still surprises me how hot the heater in a Z3 blows and only after a few mins!
