Love the MX-5. Still miss my 2007 MX-5 ZSport but I'm in touch with the guy who bought it from me and he's a real petrol head and nice bloke.

Went out for a blast with 3 mates and other halves today. One with an MX-5, another with a Jag XK and another with an Aston Martin Virage (unfortunately not in the picture since he over slept and arrived after my photo-shoot!)

Dam English weather!
Spent the Saturday cruising (well, slightly faster than just "cruising") the Chilterns in the cold gray day, just for the sun to come out on Sunday in all it's glory when I am home working...

Lovely day in the south east today. Top down all day including a 40 mile run to Brighton.

In convoy with 3 police cars down the A27, they knew I was just waiting for them to bugger off!

Top down on the way to work yesterday, but not been in the SLK this weekend. Could have had the top down on Monday, but it was all motorway driving and I don't usually have the lid down on the motorway due to too much tyre noise from other traffic.

Drove back from Aberdeen to Inverness (100 miles) top down, in clear skies and 8.5c today. A nice wee surprise!

Here in Brisbane, there is rarely a day when it is not top down. Sometimes it is actually too hot to drive topless. Only 30C today but we are expecting a heat wave next week .

(it is supposed to hit into the 50's for the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but it's going to be raining)
