How's the bodywork? Is the chassis rotten?

Not so much the chassis but the CPU needs reprogramming (bloody modern women ) and I'm sure she could do with a couple of new spark plugs.

If you can keep up with the footwear requirements not too bad, otherwise you're stuffed. My trainers are three years old, she's bought four pairs this year, she says she walks more than me
