Re: Off-topic question....

I'm wondering how he got his foot up on the transmission tunnel to dip the lights!! Another question Dale - did the spotlight behind the grille affect cooling?

Re: Off-topic question....

Hopefully looking after the Railton while it has the cycle wings fitted. When he does come along, ask him about his Rover. That is rather special.

Re: Off-topic question....

McQueen's XKSS is in the Petersen not far from Leno's place and I hear the Continuation/Replica is also in there for a while. While I'd always want a D-Type, for me the road stuff added to turn it into an XKSS made it look a bit cumbersome. Sorry. Spent some time with a well sorted E-Type roadster b...

Re: LE JOG 2016

Colin - thanks for the offer but I think I prefer the more genteel and relaxed way of touring with my friend Andrew who you met on the MM a few years back. We've even coined our own word to describe it - BUMBELARE (Verb, Italian, to drive an old open car, prone to break down at any time, slowly, in ...
