Golden mem­o­ries of days out on the road

Let's Talk - - POSTBAG -

I am 91 and have few op­por­tu­ni­ties to go out ex­cept when my daugh­ter vis­its me.

My friends bring me mag­a­zines and I re­cently came across an old pub­li­ca­tion of Let’s Talk dated July 2013.

I read an ar­ti­cle about an Austin 1100 car which had fond mem­o­ries for its owner David Clay­ton.

I had al­ways wanted to drive and bought a Mini Sprite be­fore I even had driv­ing lessons. I passed my test when I was 60 and en­joyed 17 years of driv­ing.

I loved the car so much and then I bought a blue Mini which I kept until the age of 84.

My grand­son sold the car for £400, the same as I paid to buy it. Happy days in­deed.
