The Toy Box     (Hit here for some former toys)       (and here for some previous Porsches)

There has been a major re-shuffle in the toy box of late. I have sold the last of my motorbikes, and find myself bike-less for the first time in 20 years. The good news is that the money has gone to a good cause, and I am now the proud owner of my first ever (and no doubt last ever) new Porsche.

 

Porsche Cayman

Delivered in November 2006, my Cayman is an absolute delight. For the moment, here are a few pictures.

Volkswagens

Day to day transport is provided by a pair of VW's, which touch wood continue to give sterling service. Mine is the black Beetle, which I have had since Feb 2000, and it was one of the very first right hand drive cars in the country. A great little car. Eileen's white Golf Mk4, did a stratospheric mileage but was still in great shape when we sold it, so we did the sensible thing and bought a white Mk5, just the same, which so far is proving to be an even better car.
