Well, there's one ramp in either direction, so both is a possibility!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

No worries mate, it was good to get away from my black shed.

Plus the weather was wayhey better in Swindon than in Bristol, and we got free entertainment from the next generation of KW's! What more could you want!

The beer was good too, proper ale in a proper beer garden, complete with nicotine! Perfect!

The car looks good too, much better than the photo's suggested actually.
Rather looking forward to having a go in it!

Is that an empty booze recepticle I spy in one of those pictures? Boozed up and wielding power tools/ air hacksaws?? Sounds like a job for 'elf and safety! :D

Jon, that is shaping up beautifully; you're doing a first-rate job there!

I'm really enjoying your progress...

Yes, for all their flaws 205s are fun to drive. Light enough that it should go quite nicely even with a little 1.1, too!

Many thanks for that info, amazing how many bits are required for the whole thing really :shock: .

It would be part 8 that i would need, it has been temporarily fixed & may be ok, just incase it falls apart this info will come in dead handy....

Cheers

Your GSF were doing these at a bargain price. Have they now been discontinued? :?
