I don't remember doing plugs on it - certainly look like they have done a lot more than 6k by how rounded the centre electrode is

 

Hmm. I can't remember at all. So long ago. Not used to that feeling when it comes to one of my cars!

Shitefest was another excuse to live in Hotel S-MX for a couple of nights. Luxurious.

Didn't enjoy the first night much, but slept much better last night. Could almost describe it as comfortable. 

 

I then went to a 2CV meeting, and I found this.

I stupidly realised I needed fuel as I joined the M6. Sod motorway prices, so I came off at Wolverhampton, and for reasons I don't fully understand, paid £1.30 a litre for super unleaded (still trying to keep the pinking at bay). On the plus side, my calculations reckon this thing did 36mpg on that tank! That's remarkable. It was a tank of super, and most of it was burned doing a steady 60mph though, only going higher on some motorway sections, and when carrying chips...

 

I'll see what it's like on the next two tanks. I was consciously driving pretty easy on it, but wasn't expecting 36. Can I repeat it? 

 

Paused on the way home to inspect the Newtown bypass works.

Now home again. And I still like this car.

The SMX on the tat thread isn't far from me; how high is the sill/lip of the boot orifice/aperture? It would mostly be for dog carriage duties, the dog isn't very spritely these days and struggles with the Forester currently doing the job. Disappointingly Google failed to deliver this information to me wrapped in a bow when I had a look.

Wobbly Citroens and JDM imports. I feel like I've got a lot in common with you DW.

It isn't very high. Can't say I've ever measured it. It's lower on the 'Lowdown' model.

Remarkably, I've clocked up 9200 miles in the Honda since September last year, which is a bit of a pig, as I said I'd only cover 10,000 in the year. So, I'm going to park it up for a bit. After all, I have plenty of other cars.

 

Well, that was my thought, but then it seems pretty stupid to have a car sitting about not being used, especially in the Welsh climate, so perhaps I should just accept I've had my fun with it and move it on. After all, the suspension was getting pretty tiring on the drive home yesterday, it's hopeless for Welsh twisty roads and really, I need to reduce the fleet by one. Maybe it's time.

Sod it. For sale it is. £895ono. It's much better now than when I bought it! Has had two gearbox flushes, a full cambelt kit, two services, new rear suspension bushes, new outer track rod ends and the wheels painted orange.

Oh yes! It's been transformed quite a bit since I bought it.

Bump for this one. The need for funds is starting to overcome my reluctance to actually sell it.
