I hope you have plenty of holy water to wash your mouth out Jules?Hows that heap of rust going? Talking of rust, I had a look at goldie in the garage beginning of the week. Been in there since 1st July on sorn, and noticed the brake disc’s are still shiny. I expected them to be going rusty. Pagid disc’s.

Default What's in a name

We have:

Goldie - my gold diesel
Big blue 2 - named by Lydia when they owned it as they also had big blue.
Saxos - the blue ZT, named after saxo the previous owner.
Christine - shadiesadies dorchester red, named by David’s wife for obvious reasons.
Lest we forget..
