I wonder how they would be driving it?
Have to say that driving your Activa was quite an experience and something way beyond my expectations.

Robyn has driven it once Steve and she found it too big at the time but now I think she'd love it...

I must let he have another drive of it before too long...

Both it and the C1 are likely to do fewer miles in 2016... I'm now riding my bike to work on every occasion when the weather permits...

I used to be a biker back 25 years ago and my last one was a Suzuki GT550 Triple, a lovely bike but these days a very keen cyclist...

In fact I do more miles on the bikes than I do in the cars these days...

i traded my 81 kawasaki kz650 for a VW 412, i still wonder what the fudge i was thinking .. the 412 is long gone too.
Still got a Kawasaki GPZ 750, an 1987. Hoping of one day turning it into something nice looking. (NOT a cafe racer)

How do you like the C1 VT btw ? I sold my C2 VTR this summer. Great little car. Lowered on low profiles and changed every little bushing and what not. Saved it from a girlfriend for the price of scrap. Wife and kids loved it too, but it had to go as the C8 is the daily driver and we could not afford another road tax.

I absolutely love my C1... A huge fan of it... I've made plenty of comments about it on here but overall, as a small city car for local running around it is not far off perfect!

Forgive me Jim, but your Xantia V6, is that the car that had an engine transplant ? And if indeed it is - is there any thread about it ? The webpage link is stuck at september :)
Now i will try to browse back in this thread allthough its quite the daunting task givent the number of pages ^^

My Activa is going to have a V6 transplant Hans although at present it is still on its original TCT engine...

I have all the bits to do the conversion and I'm working on refurbishing them all, including a lot of work on my donor engine and a gearbox rebuild.

The problem is that I'm a perpetually very busy person and for that reason it is a very slow project... I have many other interests in life, not least the one shown in my avatar and the other vehicles (of the two-wheeled variety) shown in my signature...

And then there's my vintage radio activities...

My V6 project website has not been updated recently as there has been nothing to update.. As soon as there is it will be posted both here and on the project website...

And all winter Alasdair... I ride to work and back every day now... My drive in my Activa yesterday was my first proper drive of 016 and the first time either of my cars had moved since before Christmas!!!

I bike or walk wherever I can, come rain or shine.... Cars get the least use possible... I do not enjoy driving that much to be honest...

I think you should do the conversion to a silver car Jim [emoji5]
