    Re: Yorkshire Dales Drive June 10th & 11th 2022

    I can't just "flop" into a Stratos, cos 1) I'd hit my head on the top of the door opening going in, and 2) my name isn't Fosbury. However I have, recently, begun to develop a strategy that gets me in...

    Re: An obturity for Mark Eaton

    Hard to know what to say that properly conveys the sadness this news brings. It's not so much of a shock to me as I knew what was going on with him, but he asked me to keep it to myself because he...

  8. Salon Prive Classic and Supercar Show - Blenheim Palace - Sun 4th Sept 2022

    Peeps,

    We seem to have made a good impression at this year's Salon Prive event back in September - or at least, we didn't disgrace ourselves, which is something :) - to the extent that we've been...

    Re: Storm Arwen

    Yeah, losing a leg just before you get your car, meaning it'd have to go back for an automatic conversion - how bad would that be?? Maybe not as much of an issue if it's somebody else's leg, tho.

    Tim, don't let it get to you. If he's ended up buying the wrong car, more fool him for not doing due diligence. You can't blame him for looking at a Porsche though - they seem to be the make of car...
