Being impatient is half the fun of it. I'm impatient, I would have slapped any old number plate on it by now and taken her out for a ride but.... I'm notoriously naughty doing things like that 😁 😁 😁 😁
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

Really, really nice effort.

Does anybody have recommendations for insurance and valuation for my 500 and 550.

I was hinting Carol Nash, Hastings or Devitt? Or is just a case of feeling around?
