I failed the custard test ie I’ve only just seen the challenge Rolling Eyes

I have been out in it today for a 100 mile round trip errand, its in danger of becoming my daily Hand

I’ve not driven a manual car since...... I took the 993 for its service earlier this year, it just feels so natural that it took me a while to remember I was driving a manual Driving ...... the mechanical wine, the burble of the exhaust, the smell..... you forget, bliss Cloud 9

Great October to be enjoying it too. Hoping the weather holds a little longer as I’m taking a day off at the end of the month to abuse the Breacons Yahoo

Fast forward 5 months and I found the car in the garage Surprised

I renewed the annual insurance today and am aiming to take it to the Manchester meet on Saturday so decided to put the Road tax on it, even though it means me paying for a full month just to prove to Sponge that its real. I’ll get the £22 back somehow Grin

..... so off to the petrol station to check tyres and top up the fuel........not Embarassed ......I usually disconnect the battery completely as its kept in a secure garage but I must have forgotten after its last use ...... so battery completely flat PC

Battery is on charge so will be ready to go for a shakedown tomorrow Thumb

Weather is looking promising. Shame that Zingari can't make it as he could have recalibrated his Colini stick against a 993 after a firmware update that includes 991 GT3 engine fires and future values of those cars with replaced engines Grin

Big call to make Saturday, eldest is playing footie (I was hoping for divine intervention) but it’s actually stopped raining! So I’m 50/50.

On the other hand Herman’s wheels need showing off and Jonttt’s 993 on the road worship

Well I actually found time to get the old girl out on the road today Cigar

Battery now fully charged up, the car had not moved >6 months but started first turn (as always) and drove like a dream. None of the sticky tappets you can get after a layup, just a smooth rumble.

Quick trip to top up on Fuel and check the tyre pressures and than a run around the local coast but in heavy / slowish traffic. I’ve not driven a manual car since the last time I drove this but that familiar knob in the palm of your hand Embarassed was soooooo reassuring. You really do forget how divorced you are from the driving experience with modern cars and the genuine stares a car a bit out of the norm gets.

All it took was half an hour to remind me why I love this car Thumb

Thats aluminium plates for you, they bend to the 993 bumper great but then are easy bent too far due to the amount that underhangs the plinth PC
