Civic is back out in the fresh air. Even though it was in a garage, somehow it got covered in the sandy dust that is heavily around at the moment. Possibly not a bad thing for a garage though, as I guess it means there is plenty of airflow?
Will be sad to see this go. Funny getting back into it. Has a distinct soft, familiar smell to the interior. Off to my in-laws, so it's not like I won't see it again though.
MGB is up in the garage now. Some young kids hanging off a fence by a house shouted over that they really loved my car. Kinda made my evening a bit.
Gave it a good blast too. It does go around corners pretty well. Much better than I expected. You do have to manhandle it around and the seats obviously don't keep you cuddled in anywhere near like a modern car. Something unusual happened and I actually wanted to go for a bit longer journey. However I had to keep it short as I needed to get the Civic cleaned up ready for delivery tomorrow.
Definitely want to go out for a blast again in the next couple of days. I think the best time for me to go is in the evening when the roads are quieter. Plus I'm not in a rush or need to be back anytime soon. This give me 60% less anxiety and worry that it'll conk out, as if it does, I won't be massively inconvicenced by it.
I fear about it cutting out and not restarting especially. But that's all unfounded worry, as it happily sat there idling for a couple of minutes while I sorted the garage door lock out.
