Putting my car away this morning when a black Transit van owned by a local plumber pulled in. And the registration letters> P2 BOG.
Classic.

Well, as we are now living under a change in lockdown rules and are allowed out, took a drive to our local stately home yesterday. Honda in the sun.  8)

Not actually today but I did see a Honda e. It was parked and I was driving by, still it looked every bit as good as the pictures. Dark blue.

Or is it? What do you think?

I passed one on the motorway the other day and it appeared a lot bigger than I thought it would be.

I stopped in a car park today and within minutes a Mk4 Jazz reversed into the space beside me.  As it manoeuvred back and forth I was surprised at how loud the whine was from the electric motor.  However one thing I really did like was the metallic red paintwork.  With a good clean and polish I'm sure it would look very shinny. Red could be at the top of my list if I decide to get a Jazz.

I wonder how much of what you've heard is actually motor noise and how much is the added noise the vehicle makes when running on battery as a warning to those in the vicinity. I've never managed to hear what warning noise my Crosstar makes but I would like it to sound like a steam engine where the noise depends on the speed.

Yes, it's a shiny red. I don't think of it being metallic.

I thought the same, then I decided it was only BEVs that had this fitted. I didn't realise it was fitted to the Mk4, but it makes sense.

Yes the Jazz does have an acoustic alert at low speeds to warn pedestrians of the cars presence.

Today I saw an immaculate Mini Moke, similar to this one. Years since I last saw one.

Lovely. Hired one on these for a day on Crete in 1986. Was a great day and a lovely drive. But then not long previous to that my car was a green minivan.

Not seen a Moke in many a moon. I have a soft spot for Mini's, as I passed my driving test in a '85 Mini Mayfair.

I never owned a mini, but my daughter's first car was a mini, which we brush painted, and the few times I drove it, I loved it.

First car I ever 'drove' was a blue Mini Clubman, down a dirt track though as I was too young to have a licence.
