Now now all, 

Fine weather we're having, etc...

As it has been so glorious up here in the tropical* north, I took the chance to replace the (rowdy) Audi's cv joints... a very satisfying job as it happens.  Anyway, was about to close the gates after the obligatory test drive, when I noticed the awesome retro/shite... ness of my driveway!  Feast your eyes!





And, just because it's 26 years and 206k old, but still capable of terrorising shitty modern 'hot' hatches and generally making my commute more enjoyable... here's the V6 flavoured slab of Teutonic shite in all it's glory...




Forum's looking good, particularly enjoying uploading pics so easily, nice one geezers.

Rosie the Trabi is in perfect working order, she needs a small amount of body work but is only not in use this year as I fancied running the Audi.  Up until this year she carried out the summer commuting duties.  My record between mot tests is 12,000 (buzzy) miles!

Aye, very attached to the old thing, I'm only supposed to tax that one for the winter, but it ends up used all summer too... kid's bikes in the back, pulling the trailer to the tip, kids love driving it up in the woods too!  They really are great things, very solid and reliable, extremely comfy and I get 29 mpgees which isn't ridiculous.






The rear sill end was less than whole after this winter (it sits under the plastic wheelarch trim), and so it's currently undergoing surgery...  Apart from that the old thing is in great order, I paid 1200 smackeroonies about six years ago, and have since doubled the mileage up to 205,000 of your earth kilometres, so can't complain really!

Pics for ol' DodgyBastard (I think your are the artist formerly known as Retroshite?), as I know you're fond of a welded repair or two!






Hopefully 'git er done' next weekend after getting my gas refilled...

Please send Trabi to my driveway to keep my MZ company :-)

Full disclosure...  I have a second 1987 Trab in the garage, and you may notice the wee caravan just peeking out behind the camper...  a Qek Junior no less!  Designed and built in the DDR to especially for the lucky* owners of IFA's finest autos!


Pics of the MZ?
