This car certainly keeps me on my toes..part 2…

Only two months ago I was really enjoying her after the lockdown and the steering suddenly became very heavy indeed, I needed Charles Atlas to help me to turn the wheel. Ah I thought, the hydraulic oilContinue reading “This car certainly keeps me on my toes..part 2…”

I found a car-wash and the S4 starts to looks like the elegant old girl she is….

We have been locked-down at home since early March and it is just starting to be eased some 3 months later.

Have a look at this lovely classic car…..

When Italy came out of the Second World War, the first cheap and mass-produced contribution to get the Italians mobile again was possibly Piaggio with their little mopeds, and thenContinue reading “Have a look at this lovely classic car…..”

An amazingly talented tyre fitter and mechanic who can service, fix or repair almost anything on wheels….

Since I moved house from Roma to Tramonti I have had to restart with all of my contacts to look after my car, my van, and my small fleet of motorbikes. This was not easy as I had lived in Roma for more than 20 years and starting over is never simple, Roma is aContinue reading “An amazingly talented tyre fitter and mechanic who can service, fix or repair almost anything on wheels….”
