hi yes I should be at the national. And I would love a ride in an activa!
Just thinking about how long drive it is and whether or not i should stay over somewhere on the saturday. Did that at gaydon and it worked well. What's your plans? (I mean you're further north than me aren't you? so its an even longer drive!).
As you've probably guessed talking to me sinkers are my main interest. Nothing against other Xants but we own one/grew up with it! In fact i've always thought it would be shame they didn't do a sinker activa (might have helped the rams by depressurising the system). In any event I do have a soft spot for activas*.
Going back to xantia numbers. Yes its a shame really I don't see any. Occasionally I see a hdi late reg but I always assume they are just someones car. Whereas when I used to see that silver activa or even an xm or a c6 I assume (perhaps wrongly?) that the must be an enthusiast. In any event yes all the xantias around here have died off bar one other..shame Anyway ill try to take some photos of the rust on my xantia when I get a minute: its rather
Drive home for me was very annoying: some silly woman in her 60s in a ford ka...didn't have a clue; confused by turning left, right, traffic lights... And im dangerous! I wasn't confident enough to overtake being in the c3/mums new car...Xantia would've been easy 3rd gear 2,500-3500 rpm...straight round probably hit fourth as you get level. God how nerdy to know rpm for different gears and the turbo cutting in!!!
Yes ive got sunburn too.. (im not embarrassed that's just the colour of my face!!)
thanks (a few photos coming soon)
*would prefer a kegresse though!! yes yes yes impractical...
