The Shadow

Driving (you) crazy

I have a car again for the first time since poor old Richie was taken off to be scrapped.

It is the second car I have owned.

It is the second car built in the 1980s I have owned.

It is the second Mitsubishi I have owned.

It is the second manual car I have owned.

It is the second car I have owned but not bought.

It is brown with cream panels; the first car was cream with a brown panel.

It's numberplate is nowhere as good as the first car's, but it goes much better.

The challenge: what is a suitable nickname for the Magna? Any suggestions better than Richie Benaud II will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to God, Paul and the people at St. John's Wilberforce.

I love it! From now on, said vehicle will be referred to as 'Mark Nicholas' or 'Marky Nicky'.
