The first thing I did when I got my car was put my next door neighbour onto the policy. Then I just threw him the keys and left him to it. He came back with a big smile on his face. Mysteriously, for some reason, I have always got on well with the neighbours ever since.....

kind regards
Marek

My kids are always borrowing my cars and I take pleasure in letting them do so. They are named drivers so any accidents, which can happen to to any of us are covered. As long as they are safe the car in secondary.

I taught all my 3 to drive in a manual car for precisely this reason.

Excellent idea. We have "Exercise Class".

Once a month a bunch of my friends and I take the E types, the MK2 and soon the XJS out for a morning's drive in the Adelaide hills.

It started as a way to get all my cars used regularly. Now two of my friends have bought themselves classic cars as well.

She started on tne’64 midget a few years back..”this is such fun…now I know why you love driving these cars so much!”
She drove the MG to Goodwood and back this year 6too

She found the power significantly better in the E!!
