A Civic Paul, the C5 was going to be unfeasibly expensive to MOT last year so opted for this as he had it in his yard. Almost a year ago.
Just MOT'd today at 68,697 miles

I think the Civic will probably do me for the duration Paul.
I hardly see it, my son has it for work most of the time, he lends it to me for a couple of days a fortnight.
It has been very reliable. Cost me £160 for MOT and service, all I have spent on it apart from a tyre with a bleb in it and petrol.
Not a Citroen of course.

Not that significant a number but I checked the mileage before I left this morning and it struck me as worthy of a mention, if only to highlight that I will have a very special number in another couple of tankfuls of motoring!! Unfortunately I was on a dual carriageway 9 miles later so unable to take the obvious shot!:-D

For some reason the numbers don't really rotate as they should on this car, if i had waited until the number(s) 2 was in the correct position i most likely would have covered another mile or two. It doesn't look too bad in this picture but for some reason the last number has always been hard to read & seems set back minutely, i should have sorted it out when i did the rev counter re-soldering mod.

My odometer never did rotate quite as it ought to.

Doubt this'll get to all the 3's whilst the car is in my ownership.

Turned over this number a couple of days ago. Surprisingly passed MOT in March with no advisories :shock:
It's really worked for its living the last few years carrying loads of: sand, cement, tiles, paving slabs, assorted plumbing bits (3m length of 22mm copper pipe go inside the car easily) and 8'x4' sheets of plasterboard/insulation on the roof rack.
