1971 MGB GT

This a picture of my third MGB, a 1971 MGB GT taken somewhere on the Mornington penisular in Victoria circa 1994. Picture is not the best, but it was a great car. It had a Webasto sliding fabric roof, which was great especially in spring or autumn, as Australian summers are too hot for topless sport cars (at least for me!). Only downside was that it did not have an overdrive gearbox, and had some minor rust issues.

It was used as a part trade-in on a SAAB 900 family car; a decision  that both my wife and I regretted at the time. Oh well!

Easter at Sorrento

Went down to Sorrento for a couple of days for the Easter break to spend time with my son Hamish and his mother Amanda. Had a great time considering that I’m recovering from having a TIA or possible stroke (still waiting for the MRI and Dr’s to say which!).

Fixed the stop light and indicator on my ex father-in-laws 1942 WWII Ford GPW ‘Jeep’ which will soon be in the care of my son Hamish as his grandfather is gifting it to him.

Went to the ‘back beach’ at the Mornington Peninsula National Park Sorrento with my ex partner Amanda, and took a few pictures. Still trying to get the hang of my new iPhone 7 plus… I’m not the best photographer!

I also had the opportunity to see what the fuel consumption was of my new Renault Clio IV on a trip. I got 5.0L/100km for the round trip which in my book is a fantastic result, this was mostly highway mileage with a few little local suburban trips.
