New car appears…

Nedless to say I’ve had my eye out for a mx5 that is suitable dfor a while – scaling autotrader and ebay etc, also putting notes on cars.

The other week one appeared in Peterborough, where my Uncle and his family live. After more reserach the car was about 500M from my uncle. So after a call to my Uncle Peter and cousin Adam they took a look at the car.

It’s a 1997, 1.8 mazda, 3 owners (2 ladies – not sure what that actually means…) 60k miles, fsh.

And it is now mine 🙂 after the family gave it the once over. I went and collected it on Thurday and it was great to drive home, amazed how tight the gearbox felt, makes my 90k miles ’02 beemer feel very sloppy.

Since it’s been a sunny few days, and the car has 12months MOTim going to drive it a bit before it’s donored, at which point i get to enjoy it, and get to find any niggles.

Also worth noting Laura is thoroughly enjoying driving the MX5, breaking it may be a hard sell – especially when the sun is out!
