Spider

I had a trip down memory lane tonight as I walked past this car. I got an Alfa Spider in 2000. It was a proper driving car as it felt like it had a mind of its own sometimes. Very twitchy at times.

Totally unpractical of course. Especially for a horsey girl. I remember having to borrow a car on many an occasion to pick things up.

Sadly it didn’t last long as it was written off when I was rear ended by a 7.5t lorry. Yes, that’ll do it! It was significantly shorter after that. On the bother hand, the fact it was a soft top actually saved me from being seriously injured as it had extra reinforcement.

Mine was bright red. And I loved tearing round the country lanes in Sussex in it. Talk about low profile!
