    Default Smiling Too Much

    Well I picked my CX up today in Brisbane after a series of repairs. Not all done but getting closer.

    I got an unregistered permit to drive it home. I had forgotten how much fun they are to drive. I can't wipe the grin off my face.

    Left Brisbane and found the heater stuck on. Bloody hot in the car but still smiling. Got home - 5 degrees - needed the heater.

    I will have to fix up the wind noise though.

    Now a few little fixes and rego here we come.


    All the best,

    Very nice. It's been, what, a couple of years now since you had it stripped down to nothing? Got any pics of the interim period?
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    Well done, but shouldn't your arrival pictures be of the CX exiting a giant papier mache Grace Jones head?

    Uhm pedantic observation; Grace was driving a Turbo.

    Greg is correct. So is Laurie. The C-Matic is in a shed awaiting some TLC at a later date.
