Sun's out, Cars out! Who's driven to work today?

Not a long drive for me, but all lovely B roads, with lots of sweeping bends. Gorgeous weather too.

Who else is in the kit at work this morning then? lets see your pics.

Oh yes, been doing it for a week. Finally, people have stopped staring at the grey haired old guy sat at the lights early in the morning in a noisy little car

Winter coat + beany hat + gloves in the morning, t-shirt in the afternoon... Yes, I have been commuting (and do most dry days) to work in the Westie today. Do about 5K miles that way each year

Ok, cheating a bit as this was back in May, but the same temperature in the morning applies and my commute is identical


Setting off in the morning at 6:45am


Past the Home of Motorsport; Silverstone


Duke of Buckinham's drive way


The Mushroom Tree in Botolph Claydon


Traffic lights from Hell


Arrive fresh at work at 7:45am


Q.

Sadly I sold my MK Indy some years ago (family of 5 with 2 seats and no roof didn't work) and due to epilepsy can't drive either. Otherwise I'd be driving into work in a kit everyday at the moment. Less than amazing roads it has to be said, but still of great fun when whizzing along.

Who's going to offer to drive Nick to work then?

If you're ever in Norfolk I'll take you for a run out.

I'm not that far away in Cranborne in Dorset, and I'd gladly take you for a blat Nick, but sadly my re-wiring/re-studding of hubs/fixing of new front calipers is only about half way through

But we may get an Indian summer again.......in which case, you're on

^^^ Thank you

No car or license isn't great, but then life could be worse!


ETA...I should say that I'm thinking of building another car whilst unable to drive. That way I can keep busy with the prospect of something to enjoy if I get back behind the wheel

I haven't driven to work, as once I'm at work in the train I won't be back at my base until the end of my shift,so don't fancy leaving it unattended for that long

But on the bright side I've just done 90 miles around north Wales before having to go to work

I can't drive to work, have no work! I'm retired so have to 'make do' and go out when I like, where I like as often as I like. Hey don't feel bad for me, I'll struggle on.

Here's my Mojo in the office car park from back in May, but it looked very much the same today (albeit with slightly less mud on it!)
Loving the sunny evenings taking the long road home...
