Default A nice day for a drive

Went to Kangaroo Valley in Merc for lunch.
A lovely day up there today. Robin's last outing before she goes into hospital next week.
I did take a photo however it is not very sharp due to my shakes. I should get a job in a bar doing the cocktails they would be perfectly mixed by the time I reached the table.

Two lovely looking ladies!
How lucky you were today Jim!
The sun, the car and the wife!

Good luck with the operation, I'll be saying a prayer for Robin.

Yep, good luck with everything. I will be hospital too in the early part of September. BTW, really like those rims on your car. Very close to being the very best looking out of all Alloys for the W116. Regards Styria

All the best for next week.

The car looks good. Ikon gold is a great colour for the w116, and as styria says, the centra wheels were some of the best available.

Wishing for a smooth op & a speedy recovery!

Itís annoying when you want to drive your car as soon as spring breaks but they usually need work & winter is the pits for car repairs. So youíre then left elbows covered in grease while others are cruising around... aaaaahhhhh!

BTW they look like CSA and not Centras.
