      He works in the coffee shop at that place. Nice guy helped me get my MGB up and running back in 2006 after it had been laid up a few years. Uses it as his daily driver

          • I think I spotted Cold on the Southern Cross Road, Bray Saturday 9.45AM 07 silver Merc?
            The lamination on the front windscreen is a bit funky for my old man eyes, couldn't see the driver.
            I was in the dark red (Proteo Rosso) Alfa 166.
            Decent round trip with possibly a slightly optimistic trip reading on MPG.
            Sunday I hit a small milestone

            • Nice.

              186,000mls. is the next milestone for metric motorists in the 21st century.
              (186000mls = 300000kms)

                    I've seen 36.8 with a steady 50MPH.
                    (And it's a 3.0.)
                    It upsets the lorries though as they have to overtake you!

                      • I see this every so often locally, senior gent driving his daily. Saw it a few weeks ago, driver waiting patiently for his passengers return- I wanted to go over and strike up a conversation but he looked deep in thought, smoking his pipe.
                        Sort of reminds me of my dad, with the beard and pipe but in a minor not a merc πŸ˜€
