This was my usual daily driver.



Occasionally, I would get the depot manager's van, a little older but hardly used and with air-con.

My CX had the rolling drum dials and rocker switch indicatiors. I never got bored of the dials and the rocker switch was so intuitive to use day to day. Radio between the seats was bonkers though.

All the XM hatchbacks have the spoiler. Looking at the paperwork, that car has had some major tittivating, bodywork and such... the coated chromework was poor, most of them had some corroded bits. The dot matrix display is still working though, lots of those have failed now.

The XM should have a Clarion radio cassette under the flap, not that monstrosity that's been fitted. Press the button below and the damped flap goes up and in, really neat like a mini garage door. I do prefer originality...

I remember the dials on the CX, real wierd. In fact, the whole dash was weird! The weirdest thing on the XM was the foot operated parking brake, the whole setup really suited an auto gearbox, rather than a manual.

Wasn't the XM the last car made with a single spoke steering wheel?

Possibly, the later phase 2 cars had a two spoke affair, similar to the Xantia.

One advantage of having a dirty Jazz this time of year, is that you can see that the number plate lights are working!  :D

Saw my first 21 plate today. A Surf Blue Crosstar. Nice colour.

This is what happens when you lose concentration/play with your satnav/fall asleep. Seen on the M8, heading into Edinburgh this morning.

Saw this 1982-83 Volkswagen Jetta this morning in Kirkcaldy. It is amazing how may Volkswagens of that age are still going about.

That van driver was a total pillock. Just imagine if there had been a vehicle on the hard shoulder. Lunatic.

That Jetta is a peach. Lovely colour too. Nice looking motor. I wonder what the back at the bottom is hiding? I've done that to more than one car to cover up rust and my terrible body filliing.  ;D

The black will up to the level of some welding, maybe rear wheelarch/door shut. Quite often see sills blacked for patches.

A lot of these old 80s cars are coming out of the woodwork, that Jetta will be tax and MOT exempt in a year or two.

Took this photo on Saturday of one of my favourite trees in Kings Forsest. It looks like it's had an interesting and long life.  :D

I love me a gnarly tree and that is one heck of a gnarly tree. Thanks for sharing.

An amazing tree for kids climbing. I wonder how many wee boys have shouted, "Look, Mum." from the branches of that tree.

I've got a gnarly old apple tree that's got exactly the same sort of list on.

I took these the other day in Kings Forest. The forest is managed and is mainly pine trees, but some old deciduous trees have been left. Amazing shapes!
