We have decided to drive to our snowboarding resort in the Abarth!

Having only been as far a London(from Manchester) it will be nice to see how it goes on proper roads!

Leaving Friday afternoon so will report back for those who are interested.

I have taken out a second mortgage for the petrol, there will be a shortage in Europe by the time that thing has finished! :dancin:

It will very different that my 1967 500 that i am buzzing around in on my days off!
