Cortinas to Cortina 2017

Recommended Posts

My back and knees were giving up after going to the Blaenavon Vintage Show on Monday. That's only in the next county! And I'm only 25! :rofl:

 

To quote my friend who is about 15 years older than me when I was winging about back pain... "It doesn't get any better you know" :(

Good on you Ronvn , l'm in a similar position, but just carry on regardless, my wife the the other day with her osteoarthritis was in a real mess, bag full of painkillers just to get out of bed. A chap that is in his 80's now would observe me as a teenager lying under cars in all weather, changing clutches, gearboxes, axles etc, even took an Essex V6 out of a car on my own, wrapped a rope over my neck and lifted her out of my Capri, put said engine into a wheelbarrow and then pushed it up a hill for 1/2 a mile to my lock up, l just must have been bl**dy mental, and he said on several occasions, "young man, you will pay for that in later years", and not wishing ti disrespect him, l thought what the f***k does he know, but you know what, he was 100% right, and another bit of wisdom he was always coming out with was, "paint it grey, it will look good", look how many cars are grey today, still wouldn't paint a car grey, well possibly graphite grey.

For those of us who were planning to go but can't now for one reason or another, there is the Mk3 nationals in Scotland next year :thumbup:

Where about please ?

 

I have never heard so many feeble excuses in my life glad I am only 74 and hope I can go again in 2022 you will have 5 years to sort your cars out or maybe take them on a trailer. We set off Saturday. I will post photos on facebook.

I wish I was retired like you ! ............and glad I'm more understanding!

 

 

Safe journey and have a good time. :thumbup:

Hi John,

Long time since we met up in Northumberland. Might you be going to Peebles next June?

Might they let a couple poor MK5 owners in?

I got your new phone number by the way.

 

Cheers

Steve
