FOUR FIGURES ON ONE CAR?

You’ve either changed, or Pre-Brexit inflation is rampant and a bag of sugar is now £18.

It looks sublime. I had so many appalling thoughts about this after the 306 Cabrio of last year which was Sundance Yellow. It was just too rich for me.

Enjoy champ. Looks like a peach. Well, more a banana...

Dug a couple of appropriate screws out of the fixings box and got fully legal.

Cleared the boot out and gave it a hoover. I discovered a boot liner (always awesome) and 3 spiders (never awesome).

I also gave the interior a good clean and hoover (what there is of it) just to brighten the cockpit up a bit.

Next step is a full service and a fuel line replacement.

It's rained on and off all day today so I still haven't run this with the top down. I did cycle the roof at the supermarket undercover though, to check it works fine.

It does look very bonny with the lid folded.

Any dreary car in the whole wide world is elevated greatly by being produced in a yellow hue. Brown, through beige and gold, all winning colours true.

It's Speed Logic Lite on Android.
Pretty good for a free app and has a canny range of features.

Even projects a HUD on your windscreen in night mode (if you fix your phone to the front of the dash I guess)
