Touring Car in Virtual Mayfair

Saturday morning was lovely and sunny in the Mayfair sim, so I decided to go for a walk and admire the spring flowers that were popping up all over. I stopped to chat with Torric Rodas, who told me about the new touring car available for avatars to ride in and have a tour of Virtual Mayfair. The car can be found next to Hyde Park, and since it was such a beautiful day I decided to go for a spin.

After removing my ao (animation override) I hopped in and off we went. The car is a vintage Monarch Roadster, shiny red and glamorous. I felt like a film star as I drove through Mayfair, the only thing missing was my sunglasses. But never mind, I still looked pretty good behind the wheel, and the tour itself is very comprehensive, passing all the hotspots of the sim: The Coach and Horses, Bogie’s and Mayhem Club, as well as providing information on renting houses and commercial properties.
We wound up and down the streets of Mayfair at a good pace, with the informative narration describing the sights as we passed. Traffic was light so there were no delays, and with the wind blowing through my hair I thoroughly enjoyed my trip, which ended outside the Coach and Horses near a laneway filled with flowers, benches and signs advertising all the businesses in the sim. The tour was a lot of fun; I strongly suggest giving it a try. And if you want to feel like a celebrity just remember to wear your shades!

Hey Hibs, it sounds like the car was on autopilot which might be just as well! lol. Judging by the length of the bonnet there must be a throbbing monster under there, quite a thrill to have all that power under your right foot :-))

Hi Ed, I will ignore the autopilot remark, but I will say that I really did enjoy my drive, it was quite a thrill, and one I could get used to.

I think you prefer me to drive you Hib, you know your driving isn't as exciting as mine!!!
