The Long And Winding Road

One of the main highlights for myself and Mireille during our summer holidays has been that we do the entire trip in "the big chap", which is code for my 5.7 litre V8 engined Monaro.

Normal life in Germany sees Mireille driving her Corolla and me with either a company car or my 1.2 litre Corsa, so when it comes summer holiday time we like to have the little bit of extra comfort the Monaro provides.

Obviously it's great having that huge engine under the bonnet/lid too, but with us liking the highlands and islands for our normal holiday destinations there aint much point in even trying to open her up properly as there's more twists and turns than you'll find at a Friday night dance class.

I love this particular shot as you can see the road running off into the distance with the Monaro sitting there idling, just begging me to get back behind the wheel and see us disappear over the horizon in no time at all.

One other funny note is the comment that Mireille says every time she sits in the Monaro these days - "ok, so where are we going on holiday this time", it's always great fun being behind the wheel of the car and for now it remains as being the "fun" car while the others deal with the daily grind.
