Title: Merry Christmas/Calibra good tidings
Post by: Shooey on December 20, 2013, 09:10:07 AM
Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year  ;D

Now as one of those oldies who wanted a Cally when they were new, and wasn't able to afford one, I have to tell anyone who like me bought one on a bit of a whim, its well worth it.

Yeah sure, its a bit old, smelly has a few mechanical issues and needs a little extra TLC, but wow, well worth it.

I went out shopping last night, took the wife and we both were howling, as the car wheel span up to 3 rd gear was growling (I think the exhaust my have crack) and Ling Long tyres. It just made us misbehave for a bit, reminding us of our youth, and early dating days when I had a Manta

It was as then we noticed the stares, as we pulled into the garage  ;D and initially I thought, here goes someone going to bollock me, and the guy behind the counter said, 'is that a Calibra?'

I said yeah, he said the redtop, and said he always wanted one lol, but cant find one lol, and came out to look at the old gal...............the car not the wife  ;D ;D I advised that neither were for sale  :-X

So enjoy your Christmas, and just remind yourselves how lucky you are to be driving such a fine old car  8) 8)
