Blogtoberfest Day 13: to cruise is sublime

When feeling a little chilly and not 100%. Load favourite wee girl in favourite old girl and drive. Go for a cruise to Evandale Market and then out into the country to see this lovely girl. The warm sun through the untinted windows and the smell of vinyl, still like new, warms the cockles. In 11 years I have never got tired of this simple driving pleasure in 'Harriet' ... and when I hear my wee girl say "I love Harriet" I know she understands too ...

Love those big old cars - feel like you're really driving and it seems your little one totally understands too!

Yes, the smell of my old car, a 1961 Hillman Minx with red leather bench seats. Our family had a yellow one and mine was faded bluey aqua. Good cars and good times. None of my cars have ever had a name though. Don't know why that is.

Oh what a beautiful old girl. Our old girl (69 Valiant Regal) had a crash last year and we had to say goodbye. We're still devastated.
