Any 2021 Drive outs yet

Hi, with the sun out in the south east, and my car having been driven last Friday afternoon for a shake down and getting lots of stares, smiles, waves and friendly horn honks, am just wondering if anyone else has ventured out yet seeing as the nice weather is very near, I know it's not around from tomorrow till next week, but I can't wait for my retest and the chance to get it on the road ready for lockdown easing after my covid Jab expecting to be this month.

I've been out a few times in last week, about 1 hr max, after that I get too cold. Just around the country roads north of Wimborne or down to Sandbanks. My new bigger radiator is overcooling, I was getting 50 deg max on the water temp gauge in the chilly air. So I made a shield for the rad and cut out some holes so there is alot less air going through and now getting a decent 90 Degs.

New nose cone from Kit Car Direct arrived 2 weeks ago, it's a slightly different shade of BRG but close enough for me. Planning to get the yellow stripe re-done in next few weeks.

I am certainly driving a bit more careful now after my incident in November. New tyres are good too, those 13 yr old Toyo things I had on there were dangerous.





Why do they call Port Harcourt "The Garden City"?...... Becauase they can't spell Stramash.

I need to get out in mine for some shake down drives before MOT. Need to check brakes and reliability .

We're still in a national lockdown. Only essential local travel is possible.





Report your local potholes, it actually works!

Still needs an MOT so that I can use it for those essential trips.

A legal obligation is indeed an essential reason

And shopping for food is an essential reason to be out in a car to the shops and back again, no-one has said which shop or where it is though as long as it's fairly local.
