Well, it's gone...

My car has gone tonight. I'm still a bit numb really as I thought he was only coming for a look but then he gave me some cash and drove off into the sunset (well, as far as the Shell garage where he rang me to say it wouldn't start but that was soon sorted).
It's a very strange feeling.I've just stood in the empty garage for 15 minutes wondering what I've just done.

Still, I'm sure that the garage will soon be full again.

He's previously had a Westie so knows the score. After that it made it back the 80 miles home (motorway, dark, no screen, no helmet - I did offer him a helmet but he declined)

Nice one Rich - a very nice car.

Can I suggest you build something you want to drive this time?

Yeah, that'd be a bonus!

Thing is because I had to get the car out last night and I had to take the guy out for a spin, I actually quite enjoyed it.
So, there's the challenge - Something a little more practical, something I can fit the dog in if need be (can fasten her harness to a harness but a little more enclosed to stop her lunging at every cyclist we pass would be good) and needs to be 3.7m or less overall. Suggestions welcomed!

Sounds like another MX5 customer!

Top Gear voted the MX5 'the best British sports car' !
