Congratulation Andy!

Your girl looks very nice. My Sedan has the same color, but he is an old fighter. 281.000 km on the counter and nearly 20 years old. But I drove him through the MOT last year without any problems too. Next time it will be in August next year.

My little big girl is just 18 and she hopes to get as nice as your girl someday. Last summer we spent 2.000 km together and now she is sleeping in a garage for winter.

Last June we fight MOT and now she is wearing a pretty nice green label on her license plate. MOT 6/18

Have a nice evening

Hi Toledodude

Yes, I agree. I do not know the situation in U.K. but here in Germany most Omegas (special the PFL) are last hand drivers. So the series will die out over the next years. For example, here in my hometown (35.000 people) I knew only a handful PFLs.

Also my Omegas where "last hand drivers" as I bought them. But I invested a lot of time and money to hold these cars. I like them and I like to be a little different. No one else I knew did so much work into an Omega B. Some years ahead the situation will be complete different. Then laughing is on my side.....

Hi Dr Andy

What bedtime stories your girl prefer?

My big little Lady always asks for that Australian sport man I have to introduce to her. Should be nice to park beneath a Monaro or GTO.....

Well spotted.  Tyres are only 12 months old, but car does 1000mls a year and kept inside so max tread left still  :y  Should be OK for the next 17 Years  :D

Pretty happy with the Rainsports, not twitched and pretty sure footed with nice tread pattern - and of course "Sharkskin Technology" as says on the tyre ;D
