16TZi circa 1992 in Gris Dolmen

Post by Kitch »

Dunno what it's called in English! But followed one through Titchfield today. Looked pretty tidy, had orginal Z type wheeltrims but back end was riding high and bouncing around....don't people notice these things?!

Amount of Xantias I see crashing their way down a road. You just want to get hold of the driver and slap them.

I know exactly the car you mean, Kitch - I've seen it around Gosport quite a few times, and the same thoughts have crossed my mind. It's been driven around like that for more than a year...
Occasionally constrained by geography. When not driving, can rely on ferry, two wheels and musclepower when a couple of miles as the crow flies would become a round-road-trip ten times the distance.
