    Just back from a great afternoon driving models from the Mercedes range at Bushmills Distillery - drove everything from a Smart to an E-class cabriolet.

    That beast just made my mouth water a little, Mrs E. BMWs are so much fun to drive.

    But… is this a picture of your car?!

    I'm a convert after driving a few. Each time I've left the car with a grin on my face.

    Very nice. Love the front end - it's pure Citroën.

    Oh no, Kev.

    Think of the environment.

    Think of all those sad seventy year olds who drive them in a vain attempt to pull twentysomethings.

    Think of how few Waitrose bags would fit in the boot.


    Uncanny timing. I was posting just this morning about last night's viewing of Jemima Shore Investigates where Patricia Hodge drove round London in a 2CV.

    Aren't they cute?! I always wanted one myself. Another car that brings on the smiles. I recall being a passenger in one when I was a teenager and fearing for my life every time a corner approached.

    ........ :D:D:D

    You're quite right of course, Mel'...... In truth, I'd be way too scared to drive a Lamborghini..... :confused: then of course, how would I get into one..? and if I did manage it... how would I get back out....?? :oops: It'd take two big lads an' a wheelbarrow.... o_O:D

    Ah, yes..... the 2CV :) I liked the burgundy and cream ones. Weren't they nicknamed "Dollys"...?? o_O:rolleyes:

    Of course.... some folks have a beautiful Mercedes to drive..?? :rolleyes: not naming any names (@Swami) :po_O

    Jemima Shore..... Now there's a blast from the '80s past.... ;)

    Me too. You're a class act, Mrs. E. :hello:


    Now there's a reason to get one if I ever saw one. Who needs a big boot when you've got that kind of setup?!

    Oh yes. They did some really nice two-tone paints, and the Dollys are so cheerful.

    I also liked the Charleston version, which would probably be my pick:

    Ultimate dream cars would have to be a McLaren P1 and a Mercedes S600!
