It's not funny - I can't eat pork pies! For all the practise I've had at suffering, I just never seem to get the hang of it somehow! :D

It was the drop out rate that was striking me as darkly entertaining, not the pork pies issue.

That's just so tragic that the very thought has given me post-traumatic stress*: you're a brave man.

or maybe it's just momentary withdrawal symptoms, Day 9, go me!

I think the Ruggs were going over tomorrow Mick. Sunday often seems to be the day.

We'll have some DS and SM pix if you got 'em though please :D

'2 Sm's'

Well, this time of year all the SM owners will be in France, jollying round a vineyard in the Languedoc, drinking VERY expensive plonk whilst wearing a straw hat -and who can blame them? I wish I was. :(

Doesn't look like a massive turnout but some lovely looking cars nonetheless. Thanks for the SM pic - No matter how many times I see them I never quite get over how awesome those cars are. One day maybe - when I win the lottery.

Nice looking LNA that - tempted Mick?

It is nice and fairly local ( Watford) but could I live without the pleasures of leaking strut returns and exploding octopus's ?

I've managed it albeit by substituting them with leaking cylinder head return pipes, impossible to make gas tight exhausts and rampant rust #-o

I've had the pleasure of leaking strut returns and an asplodin' octopus since purchasing my car and desperately wish I could afford that LNA ...

I don't think I've ever seen the parking aid as displayed on the GT (lovely BX BTW).... more normally seen on Jap cars and Yanks....

That GT looks lovely, not sure about the "parking aid" very period but looks a bit rubbish!
Lots of Motors, mostly semi broken....

That Allegro belongs to Matt, who's selling the LNA. I love that colour!

That GT is the Rugg-mobile low mileage one. Nice to see it out and about already! Guessing it was trailered there?
