Yeah I think this is all fantastic stuff. There must be a quite a few
listers who love keeping the 'ole type 44 going and give it a pat on the
dash and say 'well done old horse' when it gets you home after another long
trip in comfort (Or is it really just me). And some would say we must have
the adventurer spirit well alive to set off in the first place. With
constant repairs and/or long walks home keeping old cars going is not a
lifestyle for the couch potato, either way you look at it.
Maybe we need a registry enhancement to hold listers
scariest/longest/funniest Audi trip.
