    Test drives

    after sitting down this morning I finally decided what I was going to do with my days off which was to visit some car dealerships and have a play with some of there toys.

    After a few hours tinkering time I set off in the cobra to marsh barton Exeter and started browsing, Mr BMW wouldnt let me anywhere near the M3 for insurance purposes and likewise at the Merc garage with thre SLK's so with my tail between my legs I stumbled across the Vauxhall garage and lusted over the Monaro.

    After explaining im capable of handling the chevy V8 as I have one in the cobra they let me take it out. I must say what a beast, for something Vauxhall badged i was very impresed power came equally as quick as the cobra although not quite as loud.

    I must say it is well worth a look if ever you get the chance and the new VXR is even better.

    Im now thinking of looking at some cobra manufacturers over the next few days and seeing what else is out there for a potential next project. So if anyone fancies a ride or would like a passenger if they are already visiting give me a PM.
