Some of you may recall that i posted a thread that said, "10 days to go" than "9 days to go" etc. It was with reference to how long it was before I picked up my soop.

Well, that was about 3 weeks ago:( but wait for it, tomorrows the day.:D

Yep, the first day, picking her up, driving her for the first time, I remember thinking Leeds to Basingstoke, I got some get to know her, unfortunatly a little too long for my liking, thanks to the M1, got completely stuffed, left Leeds around 14:30-15:00'ish should have got home around 18:00, eventually did at nearly midnight, what a day, hope yours is a little more traffic free.... :D

The first time I drove my first one, I remember thinking "I'll never get bored with this power"... about a month later I'd fitted a boost controller! - Closely followed by RLTC! :innocent:

Well, I am hoping for a better ride tomorrow. I am picking her up at Southampton then driving down to South wales to pick my son up. From there it's back to Oxford.

I reckon that should be enough time to get a smile on my face eh?

Will do FAR.

For now, the biggest problem is going to be getting to sleep tonight (I am an excitable creature!) :)

I realy need a sleep as i have a taxi (yes, a taxi:innocent: ) picking me up tomorrow morning to take me to get the car. I could have taken the train but that would have takenages - and eeked into my driving time!

Hey Roy - As soon as it was confirmed that I could pick her up tomorrow, from then on I was prancing about like a cat on hot bricks. making al the plans, getting things ready...sad eh?

:D

Roy
27-11-03, 22:12

Enjoy your first day out with your new toy! Hope the weather is kind to you :)

Faye

Not sad at all.

I couldn't sleep the night before I picked mine up and was desperately praying for nice weather so I could have the roof off straight away.
I remember leaving the garage in a flurry of wheelspin and gravel because I was too keen to get going

Have a great day.:D

CJ
27-11-03, 22:14
Thanks gordon - I am sure I will enjoy it thoroughly.

I never had that 'first drive home' experience.

Mine was delivered. He even brought along another Supra for me to choose which one I wanted*
