I am looking forward to taking my Porto for a brief run tomorrow, bringing her out of winter hibernation. cool
Sadly, lockdown means I cannot go for a gratuitous long drive just yet. cry
Hope everyone is keeping safe and well.

Enjoyable spin late this afternoon on the edge of the Forest of Dean and back along the A40, west of Gloucester from near Ross on Wye.
Interesting what strikes you after not driving the Coupe for a protracted period.
I was particularly struck by how big the steering wheel seems and how small the car felt compared to modern traffic?

Very glad to say the 5 cylinder warble is still special though! love

Someone's idea of an April Fool?

I heard VW were planning to call their E range Voltswagons as part of their April Fool, I could have believed that! Not sure about the steering wheel thing? I position mine so that the top of it is in line with the curve of the dash unfortunately this means I struggle to see the temperature gauge which is bit of an issue currently.

I think you've just provided yourself with the answer smile

I could just wait for the steam coming from under the bonnet? Very apt response for the topic!
