Yes, as it happens.
Having always liked the idea of this car, I’ve had one test drive so far and the offer of an extended one – watch this space! – so I’m just waiting for confirmation of the 2020 Model Year specifications and then I need to talk turkey with my local dealer (the one that supplied my Abarth 124 Spider).
My first run since breaking my pelvis on both sides back in July and starting walking again in October.
Time to get fit again after the crash, but I’m not allowed to run, so it’s was a recumbent bike at the Beverly Hills Hilton.
Well that was nice.
I haven’t driven the 124 since the very start of July because on Sunday 7th I had a serious collision that left me with a list of “life-changing injuries” according to the police and media.
This week I upped the weight on my left leg on the advice of my physiotherapist and hydrotherapist and sought the advice of my pelvis orthopaedic consultant who said I could now drive again providing I can do an emergency stop (I’d earlier driven an auto hire car with no issues).
The 124 has been charged with a solar charger after we had a flat battery but hadn’t been started or moved so it took quite a bit of turning over before it started but wasn’t as seized in terms of the brakes as I expected.
Good to be back driving it though.
