Packing up the Coupe with shopping in Aldi car park taking my time and thinking what’s next on my agenda when this middle aged man came right up to me and the Coupe…….what kind of car is that, never seen one before, and it’s in my favourite colour. Told him, and he was really excited running back to his wife who he had left to pack away their shopping.

Aye always a good feeling when this happens……… cool


I'm an old git & happy with it,most of the time

Excellent. I've had a couple of similar comments recently.

The Coupe is still turning heads.

Yes, today I took BB for a run for the first time in 5 weeks (which was a mistake as the weak battery was now completely flat and the brakes binding on rolleyes ) and I passed the same old bearded gent on a bicycle in two different locations who waved at me from the handlebars, thumbs-up and general "envy" cool

Then when parking up, turning at the end of the cul-de-sac, a Merc driver (doing the same) rolled down his window to have another good-feel chat about the coop, so all-in-all a very satisfying morning smile

Changed the battery yesterday in the end.

I have coupe envy - those of you who have ones you can drive!
I'm probably one summer plus a full strip down and re-build away from driving mine again.
So say 2028 at the earliest lol!

Mr Tickle,

At least you live somewhere with a jolly name.

There's a place near us called Merrybent !

I think that John Inman retired there.
