Wide Open Road


    What exactly do you mean by 'ordinary'?

    I hate cars. And motorists are worse, they are so bad at driving as well as sharing the road. Especially lack of indicating.

    if there is better (and safer) public transport i would like to sell my car :)

    I've made a pact to retire when my car dies; but it wont wear out. 450,000 k's on the clock, original rings and bearings and does not use oil. It's a 1987 JE Camira SLE (my 5th) and I see no need to replace it. Maybe I'll reconsider at 500,000 km but I bet it will be still going strong. My family have a rather unflattering term for it so I keep it also to annoy them as well. It's all good fun.
