I know you're all probably sick of seeing it...

...but I can't get over how well Bilt Hamber Finis Wax has worked on top of SRP. My car's 30 year old paint easily looks the nicest on the street. Only a couple of hours effort as well.

Ok I promise to go away now for a bit and stop spamming the forum with old cars lol.

Lovely car that you are right to be proud of. Mom used to have a Maestro, albeit just a cooking-spec. Nice to see a modern classic cared for amidst a sea of lease plan specials.

Two kind of visual reactions when I go out in it: 1) by far the most common reaction: no reaction, because most folks aren't 'car' people let alone 'old car' people, 2) 'WTF is that?!': commonly middle-aged men (ie my age, pushing 50) who remember their grandad owning a 1.3 in 1988.

Hi Lee, yep same guy I'm still here, and tbf I still use quite a bit of Megs. Shame the UK Meg's forum died. I guess someone in charge decided it wasn't busy enough to keep it going.

I don't get bored of seeing this, a car from a very special era. There's a cherished 1987 Sierra Cosworth & Ferrari F355 that a chap usually brings out a fair bit during the best of the summer days we get here around my way, absolutely jaw dropping.

Cheers. Nice Series 1 RST round these parts in white, along with a late-reg Sierra Cosworth. Makes my day to see them during the summer season. All special cars from a special era, to me. But...I'm very conscious of the fact I was also in my most impressionable years when these cars were current and on the roads everywhere (early teens - early 20s). Lots of young people 20-30 years younger than me are very rightly looking at today's modern cars in the same way I drooled over 80s and early 90s cars, and in 20 years time these are the years/cars they will be reminiscing about.
