We actually got to sit in it and start the engine. He only charged a £/person to recoup the loss on the 23 days of road tax he paid. Grin

I must say - I was impressed with it. A real thing of beauty, especially the hand stitched albino humpback whale's foreskin gear lever gaitor.

Very enjoyable meet, great company and just a shame a few were missing, I'll have to track up north again. It was great to put faces to names that have become so familiar and Keith (my brother in law) and I felt very welcome. Keith a car enthusiast but not a Porsche owner, says he was amazed how much he learned about Porsches!

I should be Ok for that Thumb

What are the odds on both Sponge and Zingari being able to make it ?

I'll give:

- both 500-1
- Sponge 100-1 (depends on Utd performances so ropey at best)
- Zingari 300-1 (we all know he won;t turn up Grin )

Possibly not, it’s had to go back in for some minor repairs...

If they can buff it out I’ll bring it along... 😉

I did think of you last night when I saw this. It seems like the lift during hard acceleration pitched the car and he was too slow to catch it?
