Just a more recent photo. Swapped out the deluxe bonnet with its rotten frame for a razor edge with a much better frame (but shittier paint - which I kinda like!)

I've further updated the old girl with some alternative wheels which now give her a quite meaty look that I'm quite pleased with...



And a photo I took a few months ago in Wales was published in this month's LRO and won me a Gerber multi tool. I'm quite pleased about that, too!

This is Mattilda taken on Friday on the way to the Christmas Doo - about 5 miles before the little tart started pissing DOT4 at me down the clutch pedal...
