Or are they all wrapped up for winter?

Had a fun drive in the Targa this morning, top open to the clear blue sky down here in Sussex. I will put the car away but not ready yet and I am sure they are better being run than stationary in a garage so until the roads get salted I’ll be taking every weekend opportunity to get out and about.

I saw a lovely white E Type convertible, an old Mustang and what I think was a Zonda whilst out this morning.

Perfect day for a blast in an old air cooled today imo

True, only put mine away when the roads are salted, otherwise I’d use it (sparingly) year round.

Met a friend for a magazine photoshoot (I’ll post a link when it is published).

Then went for a blast locally in Essex. Great weather.

Yep. Was just pottering around Jersey but did have a random run-in with a 991.1 Targa 4S and ended up having a blast along some small twisty roads together. Really need to get to some decent roads again soon - planning Bordeaux trip perhaps in March.

Yes, took mine for a blast around some country (ish) roads after this week's trip to Centre Gravity. The car now feels fantastic, I kept going round and round roundabouts for fun! Love it.

Yep, took her out for a full tank of petrol prior to tomorrow's trip to Centre Gravity. Hope they manage to keep those infernal gritters off the roads for another 48 hours !!

went out Saturday, roof down, 60 miles around bucks, oxordshire an west berks. as long as there's no salt around I'll take it our regularly over the winter, better for it than sitting in a garage.
