Hi, let me introduce you to myself! Damanda C, originally from Dublin, our native city, but living, for the past number of years,(via USA,France & London) in the beautiful NW, Donegal! I've always been a "petrol head" & my husband and myself are past owners of a '68 Triumph GT6, a '66 Daimler 250 V8, & now a Mini Cooper'79! I had to retire prematurely 5yrs ago because of health problems, lost the company car & decided that, as I was going to have to get a car for myself, I was going to get something I would enjoy, but that was comfortable & had a bit of power, and after looking exhaustively at various cars, I fell in love with my beautiful dark blue R170 SLK 2.0 2001, which I only drive in the summer! So in 3 days, she, and I, will be hitting the road!
