Hi Robin

I aim to use the car all year round.

Think...... I,m half a century old, had the car 8 years with no top and no heater. probably lose my driving licence by 70 (if the Gov gets it's way). that's 20yrs left. been driving 33yrs (and it's flown by) I need to get more use out of the old bucket. Who cares about keeping it all shiny and nice in a warm garage. Need to get out there and enjoy it. British weather is 5hit, so doing something about it.

So heater in and fitted just before xmas, and a top nearly finished.


Look carefully. My top had no glass in it at all.......................Still well 'ard.

Absolutely bloody frozen though.

Lets see ya all next month :) :) :)

I've pretended to be an 'ard nut' for a long time now.
Sell the car or have a top that enables me to use the car.
Totally fed up with the british weather.

Did want the top for taking the old pops out, but I don't think he'll be well enough any more.

If I wanted a car with a roof I would have bought one, is not my excuse anymore. I only got 500 miles out of the car for last year. where I was getting over 5000 miles up until 2009. This is not enough to keep a car in the garage.

oooops was hoping to trot along and catch up with you guys but had it in mind it was this Sunday!
Dave - 500 miles, tut tut - must do better ;)
When are we going to see you on one of the SKCC runs? soon i trust......
Oh for anyone reading this that isnt a member of SKCC ( southernkitcars.com)...we're arranging an open morning at Powerspeed the exhaust / cage fabrication guys on the 13th March. Bit of a run out first and then refreshments at PSpeed with a bit of a chat about exhaust dynamics/theories. Details on the SKCC forum under Group Events - would be a welcome sight to see a few Cobs on the run and at the meet....we have to limit places to 40 so 'booking in' on the forum is a must.

Hope that may appeal to a few of you - if not hope to catch you sometime soon!
