Since moving into our new home there was only just enough room on the drive for the 8 but then not enough to walk on the path.

With help from my brother, we're knocking down and rebuilding the wall.

Nice start to the work. Mine fits on the drive in front of our gates, just. If I wanted more space I'd need to chop away at the house with a whizzer.

A successful weekend and we can now park on the drive and still have room to walk past!

Nice work. Plenty would have bought a smaller car. And they'd be mad!

Thanks Ray. It's a perfect size engine but would be impolite to say what size!
