Get out and give it a push

3 Sep

Oh the modern car is a wondrous thing with its  fuel economy engines, air bags, sat navs, and all the latest technology gizmos. But when it breaks down it’s just two tons of scrap blocking the road.

Trick of the light

OK so I waited ’til a blue car went past is that such a sin?

Weekend reflections are here.

You’ll be amazed at a Mazda

“The fact is that if you want a sports car, the MX-5 is perfect. Nothing on the road will give you better value. Nothing will give you so much fun. The only reason I’m giving it five stars is because I can’t give it fourteen.”  -Jeremy Clarkson
While the demos are off merrily democking I thought I’d just post a picture of a natty sports car in red and cream. Kind folks on social media and a spot of googlifying tell me it’s a Mazda MX5. Now I consider the private motor car to be the most pernicious invention known to mankind but if we have to have them (and it seems they’ll be around for a while yet) they should all look as smart as this.

Going right round the houses

The cars down below were aiming to get on the road up above and had to go the scenic route right through old town; but thanks to these traffic lights they were crawling along at less than walking speed. I hope they enjoyed the culture while they were waiting. This was the scene yesterday and I hear there is another gridlock in town right now but that’s just normal for a Friday.
