    Terrible news, Haroon. I’m sorry. I hope that the insurance company plays it with a straight bat.

    (That you and the Maven have both lost cars while they were in storage sends an important message to the rest of us).

    A shot I took in the Southern Netherlands at sunrise this week. Ridiculous weather, minus 15C to plus 19C in the space of a couple of days, thankfully with rain so the salt washed away. It was great to be behind the wheel again.

    Villefranche-sur-Mer to Saint-Tropez and back for work today! The weather is GREAT now. No wind and the sunset over the Golfe de Saint-Tropez was shiny like a mirror!! Sorry for posting too many pictures, but I did not know which one was the best... :)

    Thanks alot. That is a generous offer! I don’t plan to go back. I love being here in south of France. I plan to take my Jaguar XK8 convertible down so might squeeze in another across-Europe trip during April.

    thanks

    No need to apologise Erik, right now I'm living life in lockdown in the UK and enjoying what you and others post on here, knowing that at some point in the future it will be reality again!

    Hi Alan. That is also why I post them..! What is happening is not good at all, and many people suffer and struggle to keep up the mood. I have learned that depression is just a psycological «condition», and it is actually to waste off good energy into something that is not worth alot. The world is always good. The only thing that matters is faith and to look forward for a better future when the going gets tough. It is important! We do have a soft close down here in France too. From 6 PM to 6 AM, it is not allowed to be outside! Only if you are travelling for work, buy medicines, walk your dog etc. This weeken and for three weeks, there will be a full lock down also during day time saturday and sunday. So time to work on the garage and the car.

    As long as the sun is shining, we have food and gas and no real war is here, I can live with it.

    i thought your lockdown in the auka was over now?

    Pioneer CD and radio. It has a «clean» look and was a high end retro look model of its time around 2002. I am considdering going back to Becker and put in one from a 599 which is more modern than the original one from 1999 which was terrible to operate. I had (and still have) one of those few «in between» the Sony and the later 2000-onwards type Becker with two round knobs which was easier to use. The middle one was also in my 456M which was also a 1999 model. I really disliked both of them, and in the 550 I put one in from a 2001 550 which has the two round knobs. It looks much better. I want to sell both actually. And put in a newer version that matches better with the interior and use the Pioneer for my boat instead. The speakers are also upgraded to Pioneer, and I have a Focal active sub behind the driver seat and even an in-line amplifier in the mid console. Still, I am not happy with the sound. Those small speakers and the installation into the car is a joke... What were the guys at Maranello thinking when they installed a 300 dollar audio system in a 220.000 dollar car???

    Now back to the topic! Favourite pictures!

    Schools to re open 8th Match,

    A little more outdoor contact from 29th March

    12th April allow non essential shops to open, Hairdressers, Gyms etc

    17th May relaxing rules about meeting friends and others, maybe open cinema's, Child play areas, hotels, hostels, B&B's

    21st June - Back to relative normality.

    All these dates are very elastic and subject to vaccine rollout and number of daily infections.

    Hopefully it runs to plan, realistically I expect it to slip a little.

    That is terrible news Haroonok. I have not visited the site for some time and that came as quite a shock. I was going to share with you my manual Vanquish S and 575 as a similar stable mates to what you had. So I really feel for you having had that loss. No more storage sheds please. We cannot afford to loose anymore 575's. Hopefully you will find another to replace the one you have lost.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts-have actually replaced the Vanquish with an FF for now but will be keeping an eye out on the Maranello market.
