Re: Currently drinking.....

We took some friends to Mount St Bernard Abbey yesterday and bought a couple of bottles of their Trappist ale to try. The monks have given up on dairy farming and have revived their brewing tradition. Beautifully made and presented but you almost need a spoon to get it out of the bottle! Too strong...

Re: Exhaust Age

MY 2002 Focus is still on its original exhaust! If it ever fails MoT badly it'll make a great donor car as it has the 2.0 Zetec with low miles and FSH

Nearest to modern for me is Ozric Tentacles. Live at the Sunrise Festival and Erpland are superb.

Re: valuation prices

I have always preferred the style of the SII, the 2 door is the best looking Minor IMHO. Wouldn't have the 803 though, the 948 is a much sweeter and tunable engine. Still looking for the right car. On the wider issue of valuations, there are a lot of later cars at speculative prices, especially Trav...
