    Default what do you drive at the weekend

    I have many interests outside of Hifi and old Fords are one of them , I imported this last year and spent a fair bit of my spare time fiddling and fetling it to get it up and running, had to have the engine and gearbox fully rebuilt as it was worn out but now it starts and runs perfectly and can now enjoy taking it out when the weather allows, it's a 1925 model T roadster complete with an original engine and drive line , the three pedal-hand throttle arrangement take a bit of time to master but as for smiles per miles it is a corker , I have just fitted period wire wheels and now adding a few period extras , the interior and hood are yet to be finished , it certainly puts smiles on other peoples faces

    Used to have this, not any more sadly-

    There are times when you can’t do the sensible thing, when you can’t act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But when’s that ever stopped us?
