    Not a bad nights work

    No i don,t eat tacos but yes i did take 3 seperate breaks during the night,one after 4.15hrs driving and another after tipping Telford so i could then legally drive on to Enfield where i had another tacho break waiting for the customer to open.

    Not a bad nights work

    Pretty much back to normal now Barry,not as busy through the night but downside is overnight roadworks seem to spring up at an alarming rate with little advanced warning, Came out of Telford at around 0200hrs,M6 shut Jct10 to Jct8 and M6 toll shut at JctT2,where,s the thinking in shutting both main southbound routes on the same night. When lockdown was first implemented it was quite eerie at times how little traffic there was,great for making progress though.

    Not a bad nights work

    777.8kms,Broxburn to Telford to Enfield,25 plts of fine Scottish fish delivered,now parked at Hatfield,trailer dropped ready to be loaded for a load back up tonight, Not bad going really considering all the roadworks and speed limits within them en route,also lucky as i missed the shenanigans on the M6 up around Carlisle with a Police Incident that has delayed a couple of other drivers i know heading for the Southwest for over 3hrs.
  5. Hats off to you,that is certainly a looker,up there with the best of em.

    BMW 645i V8 Auto.

    I don,t want an American muscle car for its fit and finish,i want it for its V8 and its kerbside appeal (for me anyway), I think it stems from childhood where a close neighbour had a blue metal flake Charger with silver Starsky n Hutch style stripe on and big chrome slot mags, Wally Mullen you were the coolest man in the village with that car.

    BMW 645i V8 Auto.

    Not really set on any particular make or model Dennis,year 2000 on Mustangs,Camaros or Challengers would be nice, Its just a box i,ve wanted to tick for a few years now,probably not rational but feel its something i want to own before its too late.

    BMW 645i V8 Auto.

    I was looking at these 12mths ago and following advice from learned fellow forum members decided against the V8 and plumped for a low owner full history 630i, 12months on i still look forward to every drive in it, As Andrew says everyone should own a V8 at some stage, I,ve been looking at American cars as we have a long standing importer and dealer not far from us and one will definetly be on the cards before too long but the 630i will be staying also.

    E39 530i touring

    That seems a tad optimistic with its 168000mls and hearing aid beige interior.

    bonnet and boot badges e39 touring

    Try Cotswold BMW Chris,forum sponsors,they will be more expensive than what you have looked at but quality far better.
