Taking it easy in the MX-5 for a while....not one for ragging a new engine :angel:

Plus one of the local Welsh sheep decided to run out in front of us last year #-o Don't fancy having to dodge the wildlife in an almost new car :shock:

I looked up Honda in a Japaneese to English Dictonary and it said:

1.
done or chosen in accordance with wisdom or prudence; likely to be of benefit.

2.
(of an object) practical and functional rather than decorative.
"Mum always made me have drive a Honda"

synonyms: practical, realistic, responsible, full of common sense, reasonable, rational, logical, sound, circumspect, balanced, sober, no-nonsense, pragmatic, level-headed, serious-minded, thoughtful, commonsensical, down-to-earth, wise, prudent, mature;

An incredibly sensible reply Mark :)

Just not going to let go until you snap and buy a baseball cap and a saxo with a massive exhaust

I wouldn't take Waterloo road as indicative of a modern secondary Nigel :)

I've just had to trawl through hundreds of old photos.....but seeing as it's you Mike :D

Myself & Robert in the last 2 pics.....and yes that's a de-cat pipe we're fitting to that VTR beast :twisted: :lol:

Technically Robert's car but I drove it to work for a couple of weeks between selling the Camaro & buying the RX8.....check out those bad boy racing mirrors and huge tailpipes :unibrow:
