Yay got to drive a 510 for first time ever!

Finally after 9 years she's on the road again!, the carb still needs a minor adjustment as she starves for fuel if I hit the gas rapidly, runs smooth while feathering though, few more minor tweaks and I'll hit the mountain roads :-)

Here I am watching your post in a casual sort of way and suddenly realized Red Barchetta by Rush is playing in the background - nice...and somewhat fitting given your position!

Must feel great! Good job. Just in time for spring.

Nice one :) I shouldn't complain then, I've had mine just under a year, only saw it for the first time in November (I was working overseas and bought it online) and never driven it. Only ever seen 1 other.

Diego, that's great to hear!
Because when you spend a silly amount of money on a silly, trivial thing that will help you not one jot, you are demonstrating that you have a soul and a heart and that you are the sort of person who has no time for Which? magazine. – Jeremy Clarkson
