It's probably a sulky C5 now too.

One of the (expensive) problems was the clutch slipping. Going to the scrapyard yesterday, then again today - no clutch slip.
Typical.

Excellent stuff gentlemen, I had forgotten we had this thread. Yes just the place for random number noticing. :-D
I always like the when and where's of such random moments. Several of mine have been at the AI on Stannington, although I have tried to engineer a few at more scenic locations.

A bit of Andy Warhol-esque colour livens the scene up nicely!

Nice clear photo Steve, any additionals of the location such a number occurred?

With a bit of tripometer planning at 66000 if only you had reset the tripometer you may have captured the full house of all the sixes including the trip!

I thought about the trip meter but to late, The numbers thing always makes me smile.
And it was on the D2 from Aubeterre sur Dronne to Riberac, near the Charente / Dordogne border

That's an excellent innings for it Paul, We will have to wait and see, but cant help feeling that software and hardware obsolescence is going to prematurely scrap our current crop of computers on wheels.

Found this story in a random 1979 copy of "Car Mechanics" this Capri hit the 500,000 mark without the head ever being removed :-D
