Always nice to see photos of a shiny M100.

I guess she's called Hilda ?

Haha, that's what the previous owner called her. I'm not so sure, wrinkled stockings and all! But it's growing on me!

I've had 4 people assume it's a "57" reg, they are surprised when I say it's 26 years old.

I met another Hilda a few years ago. She was a full blooded male in Collapso Red

Hard to believe these cars are 25+ years old. They still look very contemporary

:agree:

I use mine almost every day throughout the year so it's seldom clean and shiny. Serious dirt gets washed off to save weight but that's it. Too busy using it to waste time with polish ... it's GRP for God's sake !
100 mile trip to Cambridge yesterday and it came back looking like this... the dirt shows how the aerodynamics work :lol:

Still looking for some sunshine though... :lol: or failing that, a trip in the rain to get that dirt off...
