Another day, another dollar. Well, not really. I don't work.

Went for a quick drive, and I mean a quick drive, up Mt Glorious first thing this morning with my dad in the toy car. That'll wake you up of a... well, mid-morning. I was allowed to drive it back down the mountain. I'm not sure, but it may be the first time I've driven it since that fateful night...oohhhhh 6 years ago now?.... when I was driving it to a party, as you do when hoping your dad's sweet ride is going to make you 'cool'.

So I'm in the Westfield (pictured zipster), friend in his dad's Mercury Cougar (American beast) and we're travelling in a sedate fashion, observing and adhering to all applicable road rules, when acrid smell and white smoke begin to emanate from beneath the dash. Long story short, electrical fire was narrowly averted but the wiring harness, from one of the headlights back to the dash, was opened like a pizza sub. The wires inside looking much like melted cheese. Not so cool.

From memory that was the last time I drove the Westfield. I'm not sure, but if it was, it makes for a slightly better story. Although I think it's lost some of the 'hey, look at me!' appeal (or maybe I've lost that), it will still be nice to be able to take it out every now and then. Carries a little more punch than the 82 Corolla , that's for sure. That's an old and dodgy picture of the Westfield, but you'll all cope.

Yesterday was Anzac Day, with the public holiday today. I didn't go to the parade this year, so instead I've got some pictures from last year... Pretty slack, I know.
