    Tar mate. I can't moan really. Other than what I've wanted to spend on him he owes me nothing. We forget how old these cars are becoming. Mines 18 now. A lot of 18 year old cars are in the big scrap yard in the sky by then. He's a long way from there.

    My poor car is confused. Whilst out on the cruise a strange wet substance fell from the sky onto it. It must be allergic to the substance as afterwards it seemed to break out in this strange rash.
    It's been prescribed a course of snow foam with a follow up treatment of polish and wax. I hope it pulls through.
    If your car breaks out in a similar rash, consult your detailer immediately. image.jpg

    The treatment was a success. The rash turned out to be an STD (Socially Transmitted Dirt). It's common when Zeds get together and indulge in unprotected group driving. It's embarrassing but anyone I've been with this week should probably get checked. image.jpg image.jpg

    Well done mate, your car is in excellent condition.

    I'd love to have entered as well.

    Perhaps next time.

    No I won't, I do like your car very much, the colour and the interior match perfectly.

    Silver is great and easy to maintain but plain.

    I did say it's a slippery slope Ant! Not knowing the bad one has paid the mods off lol!!! Joking apart your car looks superb, really impressed with the changes you've made since last year.
