So back in 2014, I was looking for something to replace my Renault Megan CC.

I came across an advert for an RCZ just a few months old, a Peugeot company car, assigned to the guy at Peugeot who was developing the Red Carbon special edition. It had all the extras they were putting into the Red Carbon, just not the badge.

I had already test driven a couple of Z’s a 156 & a 200, so I knew what I was looking for, and as soon as I saw this beautiful car I knew I wasn’t going home without it.03B71456-D98B-4EFB-BFCB-DA7F98B48A7E.jpeg
This was without a doubt the best looking, best handling, best equipped, fastest car I had ever had.

I couldn’t wait to have a chance of working a bit of magic on the paintwork...

there were those who couldn’t believe I was buying a Peugeot

So at first I thought it might be best to keep it hidden round the back

or find somewhere to park up people wouldn’t see it

or perhaps I should try to disguise it

But then I realised people were talking about the RCZ ina good way

so I decided it was best to make sure I kept it well maintained

I wanted to avoid it getting like this

I think I can now be more than happy to leave my RCZ on the drive EB110722-C9A4-46A3-9E35-CBA31826B2EE.jpeg

and I have even been to the odd meet....

and even the dog (Frank) is now quite happy to hold his head high when we are out and about in my beautiful RCZ

And so my RCZ journey continues..............
