Cool My baby is being moved to a temporary………..

……………………… new home until I’m fit enough to drive her again.

My good friend Matt Darke aka Cable Tie is coming to collect her in the next few days. He has off road parking and lives in a Cul de Sac. Plus she needs a few jobs done to bring back up to scratch. Had a few advisories on the MOT. Matt is more than capable to carry out the work. Banana has only moved once since I parked her up on the 12th December 2023. Allen took her into the workshop for her MOT back in January.

I really miss driving her but hate to see her just sitting there. It makes me feel real sad. But I know she will be in good hands with Matt. After all when I pop off this mortal coil Matt will inherit her. She is written into my will for him to have her.

Allen will use Baby Black Banana occasionally , possibly just taking me to the shops. Or on a day out if it ever stops raining.

Change of plans. Banana staying here in Cornwall, once we get her started. Battery is flat. Going to move her into an allocated parking spot then she will get started up every day by me.
Allen will be coming around with Leafy, and jump leads. Hopefully tomorrow.

Hi Bob. My 2.5 Connie is usually started about every three weeks. In between times, ithe battery is put on charge. This seems to be ok because as soon as I turn the key, it bursts into life no problem. Hopefully, this June it will have its turn on the road for twelve months.

Banana up and running with the help of Leafy. Now back in her allocated parking space. What a lovely sound hearing Banana ticking over. Oh! How I have missed that sound.
