Harrumph!!!!!

Well, Daddy went to the Severn Valley Railway and spent all day riding steam trains. This meant he was rather smelly when he got back into me but the worst thing? Where he parked me, I COULDN'T SEE THEM!!!! I did think about cutting off my aircon to make him suffer but decided not to. He's getting used to it but sometimes forgets and opens a window. He tells me it's to listen to my turbo but I know better!

I think my Daddy's getting old.

I will forgive him though. It's a lovely drive to Bridgenorth from Wolverhampton and he did use my turbo wisely both ways so fair enough. I'll even forgive him his chip supper putting grease on my nice clean steering wheel.

He'll have to clean that!

Love

Otterchops

You missed a real treat not seeing any of the SVR... Daddy was very naughty :twisted:

You might have been able to have had a lovely chat with some really big diesels there too...

Don't you really fancy a nice twin-turbo V16?

Hello

Daddy showed me a video on his new Smart Phone* a couple of weeks ago of a loco with a big, 16 cylinder diesel with no less than 4 turbos. Now, could he fit one of those in me? 2,000bhp and a nice, whistley exhaust sounds like a good thing to me.

The engines are rather large though I understand.

Not done much this week, not since Daddy got a stinking cold. I do like it when Daddy does not coat the inside of my windscreen with germs.....

Salut, tout le monde!

Have a look at this: my papa can certainly drive! there's about 1/4 inch between my left hand mirror and that wall and he gets it there consistently. I like this drive. Safe behind my gates and a view of everyone and everything that goes back!

Oh, and there are several other Citroens in the road, including a C5 the same colour as me.

I have a slight oil leak on my turbo (daddy thinks, it's from down the back of my engine anyway) so I'll be back to Uncle Alf's to have that looked at.

So, scampering up to Yorkshire later this week.

Feels nice to have had a bath. People can see my clean, shiny grey paint now.

Hello all!

My papa is a prize pillock!

Mind you, I've had some fun with him as well. He's traced my oil leak. The seal had perished and a bit of vibration did the rest. No oil filler cap this morning and I've sprayed some oil on my engine cover. Thought he needed a clue, although I did not expect that I'd lose my filler cap. Not to worry.

I was very nervous indeed while he was buying the new one when he parked me outside a scrapyard while he "surfed." It even came from a 90hp diesel. But I've come home no worries.

Evening from Yorkshire.

My Daddy has been using me as a dustbin lorry! The cheek! Even if he did have to rely on me to fix the lights on his sister's trailer!

Nice to be useful.

I've certainly given him something to think about! It's taken him a few days to figure out the blockage is somewhere between my rocker cover and my ait intake pipe. Oh, bugger! He's figured it out......

Ah, forgot to tell you he folded my seats and then put some carpet down. Daddy says Imhave to tell you this otherwise he knows how to do horrible things to a naughty girl.

Oh, and he opened the window to remove any smells so, all in all, could have been much worse. And he did try the trailer sockets withmmy towbar.

He's leaving the carpet in and has cut it so he can still split my seats. He's a decent sort, really......
