    It's been hard not to start the aftermarket purchases - but I set myself the target of waiting until I had a delivery date. I will have plenty of time over Christmas to check the list! hope you have a vantastic one too.

    All of my cars have names:
    I've got "The RS", "The Cali", "The Split", "The Merc", "The Mini" and , when finished "The Apache"

    I don't understand people naming their vehicles. Sorry

    Welcome to the forum however :thumb

    All our vehicles have had boy’s names except for a smart car called Flossy (she was very girlie).

    Our last camper was Vic Van. Our car is a Polo called Al (long story).

    It’s always depended on what the registration plate brings to mind and what kind of feeling we’ve got for the vehicle.

    So, who knows. But hopefully we’ll find out soon.
