    Another one hits the road !

    Well today was a very special day . I got my V5 yesterday with my new registration number so I rushed out and bought my plates and today managed to dodge the showers and clock up a few miles .

    I'll post some separate notes on the New Car registration process. I was holding back in case I ended up with a Q plate - but all the docs were in order.
    Initial driving impressions - it's loud with plenty of creaks and squeaks, the steering is stiff (which I knew anyway) and I cant select 5th or 6th gear - so need to fiddle with the selector mechanism again. Also the water temperature seems to settle at just below 100 degrees - as does the oil temperature which is a bit worrying - so need to investigate further.(am wondering if I need to re-position the front number plate - although it is fitted with the standard LB bracket)
    But hell it goes fast and on a wet road I can see I might frighten myself. It also attracts a lot of attention (again which I knew anyway)

    So looking forward to some nice weather for a longer run.

    Bloody L Pete! is that really your car or did you steal some pics from somewhere??

    Congrats on reaching the end of the beginning - I know you'll have lots of fun. But, good job they didn't give you a plate with the first two letters "QU"
