    It was my birthday the end of October.

    I bought myself a Z3, just like I promised myself.

    2001 model, 52,400 + change miles, 1.9 Litre, British Racing Green (BMW call it Forest Green), beige leather interior. If I ever remember to bring my pc cable in, I'll post the photos that I have on my phone.

    Until then, use your imaginations.

    Now...

    If you have a glorious warm sunny day, make sure you put the hood down.

    The number of convirtables I see on warm sunny days with the hood up far outstrips the ones down. WHY buy one!



    In fact make it every day, we had a Uni Lecturer who drove a Morgan ( it was an old one even in 1994) every day, it had no hood. He just had a flying hat and gogles.

    I've been really tempted on a few fresh, sunny days since I've had it, but I don't have the flying jacket yet, or the Leslie Phillips flat-cap. The roof has always been soaking wet too, and for some reason, I don't want to fold it down and put it away wet. I have this idea it might start to smell, like washing that's been left in the machine for too long before being taken out to dry and air.

    But rest assured, come the Spring, I'll have it off at every opportunity.

    Oooo-er, missus, I hear some of you thinking.

    I take it you are a lady, and possibly a hairdresser?

    Oh gosh......you're so funny.

    I would laugh, but I'm worn out from having laughed the previous 27,658,635,488 times that I heard that.

    Mehhh, I've had it all since I bought it......Hairdresser's Car, Tart's Car, Girl's Car........you name it.

    Mostly from people who have really off-the-wall, rebellious, hair-raising, edge-of-the-envelope family saloons.

    I wanted one, I bought the exact year, mileage, colour and interior that I wanted and I'm really happy with it.

    And you know what they say...................'Sticks and stones can break my bones, but whips and chains excite me'.

    Or have I got that wrong somewhere?

    This is my pride and joy:

    Still have a rubbish car aged 29-20121117_155402.jpg

    I'm 19 and have wanted one for ages but due to being an apprentice couldn't justify it. In September, once I was qualified and put on a better paid contract I decided to loan the money and reward myself for the hard work the I had put in.

    I also own Maria:

    Still have a rubbish car aged 29-minibackgroundmod.gif

    She is my other and more important pride and joy. She was my first car, but have owned her since I was 12. She was in a worse state than that when I got her and have spent quite a bit of money on her and in my opinion looks pretty good, most of the work was carried out by myself and as a result of that I now have a very good understanding of mechanics .. so a really good thing to get my teeth into at a young age. She has been in the garage for quite a while now as I took her off the road and got something a little more sensible for the travelling that I was doing. Since then she has had even more money spent on her to make her even better.
