Suzi is still going strong

What a great day today was. The weather was good. I met a lot of new customers, and got a lot done. Life is good.
I drive a Suzuki Supercarry. It's done 130,000 miles, doesn't use a drop of oil, is very reliable and carries everything I need. No matter what I throw at it, it just keeps going. Year after year it flies through the MOT. Whenever I take it for servicing, which I do religiously, David suggests I should get the new model, but I always say no. It's very basic, and has absolutely no extras, but this van is super practical, and I love it. I'm a handyman not a builder. I don't need, or want, anything larger or more powerful, because otherwise I would probably end up doing bigger and bigger jobs, which I don't want to do. I deliberately keep things small - including my transport. I know some day in the near future Suzi will have to be retired, but as long as she goes on doing what she's been doing, I'll keep on driving what I've been driving.
