So, we're back and it's all over...except for the memories (oh...and the touching up of about a million stone chips!)
Our FLED extension was a mere 3300km and didn't involve any road kill or bouillabaisse, so hats (from Blairgowrie of course) off to Capo for putting, and firmly cementing, the Epic in FLED !!
We had a great time and the Boxer behaved wonderfully. I feel like I know her a lot better now. I would heartily recommend a long driving holiday to anyone who has yet to get that level of comfort and familiarity with their pride and joy. I can honestly say I think of the car differently now. I was in awe, a little scared, not least because of the money tied up in her, but now I am much more relaxed, and while still remembering to respect the dynamics of a mid-engined 1970's design with the engine perched above the gearbox, I will get more out of owning my Boxer now.
Many thanks to JL Motor Engineering of Hillington near Glasgow, and to Autoficcina of Chessington near London for their help with the car, and to Rardley Motors of Grayshott in Surrey for selling me a good one in the first place.
