Windy Feelings

Post by pittstop on Thu 26 Apr 2018 - 11:10

Off to Bedfordshire this afternoon for an overnight followed by a visit to Bletchley Park tomorrow morning.

Can do the round trip on a tankful so decided to top it up. Stopped at the petrol pump.

First thing I was approached someone; who I met many moons ago in a friendly golf match; who said is that your toy car just for local trips? Where do put your golf clubs?

Opened boot & showed him. He was impressed & more so when I told him we drive to the Med in it & enjoy all the benefits of: Roof down with a full boot; Auto Air Con; & other comforts.

Felt good about my Wind!!

Now to the business of topping up: Big mistake as it was nearly full & we all know how difficult it is to get those last few litres in.

After much pfaffing about; during which time another car, which was queuing behind me, moved to another pump; I got £6.50s worth of petrol in it. 

Felt embarrassed & less impressed with my Wind!!

Attractive young lady on till commented on time taken to put in such little fuel. So I explained.

Can't the manufacturers fix it she said & I explained that it was something owners lived with as it was such a rare car.

She pondered a bit & then said never mind: 

IT IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CAR!   

Felt really good about my Wind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
