So as well as the oil change or nipping up that wheel bearing there`s going to be a real shortage of wiper motor spares in suffolk.

Never mind the weather, It was only Anji`s second time camping and she`s ready for round 2. Moral of the story, if you need your missus to appreciate comfort, take her away for the weekend in a Diamond T.
