Well, sorry it’s been so long since the last post. Things have been pretty busy over the summer, and having got a little behind with updating this, I then kept putting it off. The 410, you’ll be glad to hear, has been behaving itself over the last few months. There’s still a few little things to do after the rebuild, like sorting the draught around the passenger door that makes a huge amount of wind noise, and working out how to get all the dust out of the instruments. But to help avoid such an accident again however, I have a cunning plan that I shall reveal in more detail next time…
There’s been no more big trips, but we’ve been off to various club events around the country, including the new monthly Oxford Section meeting, pictured above. The Concours up in Leicestershire also went off well, though was a little colder and windier at times than you might have expected for August. As always, the car’s also been used for all manner of daily chores and trips, but work has kept me so busy over the last few months that sadly it seems I can go a thousand or more miles in the Saab in between trips in the 410. But petrol costs are falling now, so maybe it will come out for work trips more often again.
Finally, if you liked the beautiful orange Mangusta that I mentioned last time, check out the comments to that post, as its owner has been in touch and it turns out he has his own blog about the car too. Maybe a 411 in that colour would be exciting!
I won’t let it be too long before the next update I promise!
