Just upgraded from 993cc to 1300cc - oh mercy!


Our ancient N Reg hi-jet had to be scrapped (I got £120!!!) and we've replaced it with a 2002 model.

It's taking a bit of getting used, especially the unweildy power it hold. I've nearly come unstuck several times in the rain with mad wheelspinning, even in second gear!

I have to be really careful, this is actually my wife's van and her tiny frame is well suited to the hi-jet, whereas my 6' 2" lanky self struggles somewhat. I have to duck to see through the windsreen and my size eleven feet sometimes find the steering column instead of the brake pedal, and that's terrifying enough for me to decide I need my own car.

Er, I'm now sure what point I'm trying to get at with this post, but I suppose it gave me something on a Sunday morning.
