Re: A newbie saying hello...

Welcome to the Club, and Forum, Howard. 😀
For one brief moment, seeing your forum name, I was getting proper excited to hear which Astons you’d had! 😆😆

Probably closer to 100mph, but the tyres soaked up some of the speed, he walked away. I left a Citroen CX2400 GTi looking similar after hitting an asphalt laying...
