Erm... possibly soon after I bought a new Handspring Visor, 32 inch widescreen TV and surround sound speaker system, and then realised I was saving up for a car smiley - bigeyes And the insurance on classic MGs is ridiculously high - not because they are expensive, but because they have a habit of driving into things smiley - erm

We're trying to think of a name for the new car, Tink's not keen on 'the Tadpole'.

Most of mine have taken their name from their number plate. Ah, dear old Ropey, my Austin Healey Sprite - she was a bit ropey too smiley - winkeye.

Fi's 19 and I don't even have a full license yet, so we can't really afford insurance on anything more powerful than a Morris Minor at the moment smiley - sadface So we'll just insure her on the new car, with one of those women's-only insurance companies. (Which insures women under 25 at a reasonable rate, even if I think it is very sexist and wouldn't be allowed if it was the other way round smiley - winkeye)

The letters on the numberplate are P and XEL. Suggestions welcome. If the number was 1, it'd be sorted smiley - smiley
