It’s my age :cry:
Now, Sterling grey Z4 2.2 with cup holders, stubby aerial and sport seats. Roadsters ‘cause they’re great with the roof down.
Ford Anglia, Red Sprite, a few MG midgets, MGB Roadster and yellow Ford Capri, all gone many years now.

Jeezo, what is up with with all this Scotland bashing? Just because a car comes from north of the border, it doesn't mean it's going to be rotten. We do have garages you know and some of our cars may not even touch the roads during the winter periods.

Exactly. Both my E85 and E46 are nicely tucked away in a temp controlled building now until April at the earliest. Thereafter the Z4 might be up for sale.

So this is what my Porsche looks like:

Our Porsche 911 (996) will never rust underneath, due to the never ending and copious oil leaks that covers everything under there.
