Well, I did it. I bought a sports car. After much indecisiveness I decided I was clean of steroids, sound of mind and had found a good one. The ebay seller had refused my offer when I went to look on Sunday, but he rang me Monday evening and said he had been thinking. The rest is history.
I now own a gorgeous 1978 MGBGT. Has it cheered me up? You bet. Will it continue to keep me happy? As long as I can drive it, it will. Been out this evening and dusk in a British legend is so enjoyable. It has that sports car smell, it drives beautifully, it sounds fabulous, it makes me grin.
