DAVID Splaine, an engineer from Bristol, may well be the ultimate fair-weather motorist.

Thirty years ago Mr Splaine spent pounds 1,421 on a new MGB GT Coupe and he has still never driven the car in the wet.

With a good weather forecast for today and tomorrow Mr Splaine, 55, is preparing to hit the (dry) road and add to the car's mileage of just 35,000.
