Thanks everyone, much appreciated. I'm going to try and get some use before winter and gritting begins.

The 406 will be going for a little run this week to fetch a few cleaning goodies from Huddersfield, this will be the longest run its had since I've had it, I can't wait as it's been a couple of weeks since its been anywhere.

It's great climbing into a car you've not used in a while :)

I had a week off work a couple of weeks ago and decided that I'd use the Activa seeing as it had only done a few hundred miles since it's engine swap, it was an absolute joy and it reminded me why I adore that car.

Last night Cheryl n I were going for dinner at a friends house on the other side of Glasgow, about 30 miles each way. We decided to take the Range Rover for a run as it hadn't moved in about 3 weeks. I fell totally head over heals in love with it again last night as well. I really hope I never have to downsize my fleet as I'd be utterly stuck as to what I'd keep!

Downsizing the fleet is never a good idea David, the more the merrier I say (not what the wife says though) :wink: l :lol:

I've decided to stick with the 2 I have now, the 407 is great for up and down the motorway, back and to when going to work and as an everyday runabout. The C6 well, that's the cruiser and she will be getting her legs stretched on the run to Bristol Nd back in the same day the week after next.......can't wait......

The things about jumping into a car you haven't used is that you sit there for a minute, just holding the steering wheel and looking around......I bet you do!

Me too when I get in the Activa... After the C1 the gearstick seems an awfully long way away :roll:

Exactly the same with the blingo Jim, mind you I do love that vehicle, it would be perfect with an extra 40+bhp [-X :wink:.

I've seen pics of the old shape V6 pug partner, a new shape blingo would be ace with a V6 fitted and lpg, possibly the perfect vehicle for me.

I'd love to Davie :twisted:. I've also seen a clip of a Zx16v with a V6 fitted and it looked a pretty neat installation, and a high speed run too, crazy stuff.
