    Spent 5 nights at Blaydon Chains.
    Obviously caravanners are regarded as second class citizens there as all available hard standing pitches were being held back (by the wardens) for motorhomes!
    We had to park on the grass and put the car in the car park - we'll go to Lincoln Farm Park next time!
     
    Total now 9 nights.
    Cheers

    Might as well make use of the 2019 thread then!
     
    Back from 4 nights at Stowe Hill Park to test the van after it's Christmas Holiday with Swift having a new floor fitted.
    Mostly OK except that they had wired one motor mover engagement motor backwards and it's opposite number not at all!

    I think the MK 3 Cortina was the first one I drove. It was a rental car from Aberdeen Airport. It was the first car I had encountered which had a single key for door and ignition, not to mention the first car I had driven with a steering lock.
    On the key ring was a short length of thick, stiff copper wire. The rental agent explained that they were having trouble with the Ford steering locks and before inserting the key, the copper wire was inserted and vigorously worked up and down to free the tumblers before the key could be inserted and  turned!
    My father had a Corsair 1600E, it kept randomly cutting out only to start again a few minutes later. This was eventually diagnosed as a plastic fuel filter mesh on the floor of the fuel tank. This was softened by petrol and getting drawn into the fuel line, the car stopped - the softened plastic floated out of the pipe and the car could be re-started - until next time!
    A friend had one of the last Cortinas, the factory had added all sorts of un-ordered stuff (presumably to use them up?). His 1100cc car came with Air Conditioning - the drawback was if you turned on the Air Con at the traffic lights, it would stall the car!

    A wise person once told me that the older you get - the more dead people you know.
    Put things into perspective for me.

    Is cruise available as an option from the manufacturer on the original vehicle?
    If so, could be that the necessary wiring is in place, would just need the control stalk and a visit to a dealer laptop to enable it.

    With a portfolio like that, makes you wonder why they are letting Swift fit out Airstream shells for the UK market . .
