Car of the Month
Car of the Month May 2005 belongs to Georgina Brooks from the United Kingdom.
Hi everyoneI christened him Berty as he is white and black, but as someone commented: “Is it because he has had allsorts of owners?” [In fact, I am the 11th owner]
This is a very special car for me as it is both my first car and my family clubbed together to buy it for me for Christmas and 40th Birthday. – They showed a lot of faith because they bought it for me before I had passed my driving test!
I have now had him just over 6 months and between my husband and I we have driven an enjoyable 5000+ miles in him. As well as local journeys this has included longer journeys to Scarborough and Ware.
He prefers longer journeys and sometimes is a bit sluggish first thing in the morning on the local residential roads – finding it difficult to wake up until we reach the main road where he is pleased to “stretch his legs” (well wheels then).
I have had new lights, radio/cassette and the upholstery mended but I still need to get the rear arches (re)done and the rear lights could do with replacing when finances allow.
I would like to go to a 480 club meet and the Snowdonia meeting coming up would be great – but unfortunately as it is midweek other commitments make it impossible to attend.
I look forward to many happy years and miles of motoring with Berty.
Greetings from the UK.
