    That cab design has certainly earned a well-deserved rest!

    Looks like the CF is now being passed the longevity baton at 30 years. Definitely showing its age though.

  3. It's all been a bit quiet recently in my crap cars life. The Rover was sold some time ago and has been replaced with a boring cheap modern to ride out the recession which has been on the cards for some time now.

    Anyway, today was interesting. Had a nice family reunion as my various siblings have not been together as one for many years and with father_WSE's health deteriorating we all went to say hello. My older brother has had an unusually successful career and as a result owns this 1978 Aston Martin V8. We took it for a spin and I let him play with the 2CV on a surprisingly nice winters day. His is an auto and he couldn't figure out the 2CV's gears at all!

    Low mileage although the drivers seat bolster wear and shiny steering wheel seem a bit at odds with that. Spectacular caramel interior and jrg? exterior combo.

    In fairness... How fat you are does make a difference. A heavily obese friend has broken his new Fiesta's seat already through just being enormous and I reckon some people have horrible sweaty hands or some weird steering wheel gripping technique that causes the shine. Hold it with one finger like me and you'll be fine 😎

    I assume that's a revmeter on the left but what does the 'charge' bit mean where it looks like you can go negative?
