Default Was it anyone on here buying the MX5 on monday

I was up at a local MX5 specialists near Hamilton on monday and got chatting to a family
from the uk who had been in NZ for 4 weeks and were looking over a few
Mazda MX5's that were for sale.
I was just wondering if it was anybody off here

I saw a TVR a couple of days ago, that made me do a double take as they are not frontal impact friendly .

It's quite safe to drive as long as you don't crash (the chassis is very rigid and tends not to bend so it's better in high speed crashes than low speed shunts).

two years ago on my way back from a holiday in nz i had a brief chat with an englishman from auckland i think. he was going to england on holiday and to buy a tvr,i think he is in a tvr club and has brought a few tvr's to nz,i think he said it was only the older models that were eligible.he makes a tidy bit on them he reckoned.

No I just recognise the lovely (pain in the ass) ornate stone ditches (if that is the correct way to describe them).

They are only in one part of Cambridge. Haven't a clue or any interest in the road/close/avenue etc that you are on

We used to live in Cambridge now are out at Gordonton
