Late-ish this afternoon, while passing the BP petrol station (formerly known as Long's Corner) on the A63(T) at Howden, East Yorks, a 54-plate Gun Metal 350Z coupe was seen just about to leave the station forecourt, and in an apparently very polite way. It was a very pleasant surprise, as the garage is usually frequented by yokels in vans and pick-ups as well as reps all of whom seem to have an attitude problem.
There was also a cosmic irony in the fact that as it was leaving the forecourt a white GT86 was just pulling in. My very brief internal dialogue went along the lines of: "Would I want the Zed or the Toyota?", "I hate the word "or", but which would be the shopping cart?". And then I went home and bled the clutch of my shopping cart, wondering whether either the other Zed or the GT86 needed or would be improved by it . . ?
