Ah, the important stuff. I forgot about that. Doh!!
Well, it's a bog standard 120+, apart from the seats, which are those 180 types with the different fabric and the leather inserts(red in this case). And the car itself is Anthracite, I should add. It was a REALLY close thing between that and the British Racing Green, but the black JUST scraped it, as I think it looks just that bit more classy. And a touch more 'mysterious' too. I only have to wait between 7 and 10 days.
And I'll be having an MD player put in, sometime next month., when I've flogged off my wife and the twins to pay for it...(make me an offer).
Which reminds me. I may start a "Give me some idea of what music to put on a christening tape" thread sometime over the next couple of days....
I tells ya, I'm as excited as Homer Simpson with three pizzas....
As a fellow 120 owner I know how much you will be looking forward to getting the car.
Some of the people on this (and other) forum(s) are thinking of getting together sometime for a joint Northern / Midland owners meet/run. Thinking about the Peak (or there abouts). It would be a good chance for you to come and 'give it some'.
Having what some people reckon is a warped sense of humour, I've been annoying my missus by running around in little circles, flapping my arms and saying: "but Mummy, I want my new toy NOW...."
It got the predictable response from my wife & daughter of: "Huh, MEN!!."
And John, that joint Northern/Midlands run to the Peaks or wherever, sounds like an excellent idea. Certainly if I couldn't get my better half interested, I think my son would be. He's by far the better navigator anyway.
