Default The Story of our Love.....

My well loved blue bus - she remains unnamed at the minute, but i'm sure we'll think of something

Number plate suggests "Very F*ckin' Nice" but she's to sweet for that!

She's a 104 Shuttle, not too quick but nice and cheap on fuel and is fun to drive nonetheless!

In the 9 months we've shared we've had some great times, a few short breaks, plenty of hours spent tending to her needs, and she's put a serious strain on my wallet, but as with all relationships, she's stood by my side and i've treated her with the best respect i can manage...!

The week she came home from manchester, only things added so far was Diesel and some clear side repeaters/chrome lamps....



And how she looks now after a bit of fettling and a trip to the paint shop




================================================== =============

Our Love Affair....

Our first date together and we couldn't even be alone, he insisted on bringing his "mates"



I was not impressed, especially when his "mate" got all messy and still wanted me to give him a lift home. I've since told him on no uncertain terms is this to happen again.



One of the first things he insisted on was that we sell all of my assets - so he stripped my of my beloved seats and carpet to make some quick cash.... Our relationship was on the rocks for months after that, but he has since treated me to something much nicer to wear on the inside....












We had a couple of romantic weekends away (where he insisted on getting me covered in salty spray in a beach carpark where other vans could watch!)



And whoever said it's the Woman who packs too much stuff!



After alot of time spent covering me in sawdust he even managed to fit me a new kitchen.... As with most men however, this job isn't actually finished yet. Guess I'll have to keep nagging him!






He did work right through a typical UK July though... I helped offer him shelter!



He Savagely attacked me with a Saw.... He told me not to tell as it was in my best interest...



He took me to a Rock Festival... It was my first one! Didn't get to drive very far though, Just Reading, And we had to park miles from the stage. Was nice and quiet to sleep at night though (He brought another Woman with him though, she seemed quite nice).



Then just a week or two later he took me to VanFest, there were lots of other vans there, some quite alot prettier than me, I was quite Jealous. He even brought the kids too, They seem to like me - i'm very child friendly!



Don't know why he insisted on bringing his parents and the Transit Terd though....




And We have had another wet windy weekend at westward Ho - This time fitting 3 fully grown men and a van load of kiting gear inside me. I felt like a cheap wh0re...!



He made me some Roof Jewelery for this trip. I like shiney things... Stainless is better than Gold in my eyes!



Anyway, he finally came round to the idea that witha bit of surgery and a new pair of shoes, I could be as pretty as the other vans at Vanfest, so he saved up and blew his wad on me as a late christmas present!

Scars removed




Love handles removed




(here's one they made on blue peter)



He bought me a fallic looking toy for my rear end. Not sure why yet?



New Shoes! I love shoes!



Et Voila - a much Sexier looking me - Wouldn't you agree?!

Cheers Speedygirl....

I'm keeping the wheels and trims I think.... Hard times ahead may force sensible priced tyres back on!! (I found some 13" wheel trims in the garage the other day off my first car 9 years ago!)

Thanks General - Thinking of selling the Hornet actually.... only has 4k on it - I just don't use it enough, - it's shy in the rain - there was a time i'd leave my car in the garage and take the ol' Xj to keep the car clean!

It's great fun to ride, and I do love the colour too... Team Blue!

Mine's a 600. had it about 18 months now, and done just over 2000 miles, it's the newest vehicle i've ever had (bar the new pushbike i got the other week which happens to also be blue!)
My only gripe is that my legs are about an inch too long for it - not a problem unless you spend more than an hour-and-a-half riding in one stint...
