Sure Mike, if I'm right and from his preparer's words he sold the first one he got but regretted it few days after. Hence a second buy! They are no doubt enthusiast people.
I just was wondering about me rambling… The age certainly.

Delta, your dog has really good taste for his relationship, I'm jealous. I now dream my two beloved mutts wandering in the Elysée gardens, trying to bite the purebred mongrel of the actual renter. Nice thought!
Just bought a fluoro jacket for the female… Will be helpful this coming Sat'
Happy day!!

You mean Brigitte? No, the mongrel making pee everywhere inside the Elysée looks more like a Labrador or Golden Retriever… The other one making p... everyone looks like a politician… Note that in this case we dont say purebred mongrel but more likely b&&&&rd of d&&n politician!

Wilmazz if one day you're suggested to refurbish a T5/4 speed gearbox, just refuse or bring some friends with. Remove the bell could help in transportation though… You'll learn on the hard and heavy way what iron means then…

Best drop her a bottle of English red round, sound likes she needs it.

Anyway, no need to worry about the status of National A licences in Europe soon, most here won't be able to afford to race over the channel at the rate the £ is dropping. We'll need our passports for Knockhill and Nutts Corner soon so you can get your fill of racing abroad while still spending the good old £.

I'm currently enjoying my salary in Euros. And month on month there's very little change in the exchange rate since June 2016 so I'm getting somewhat fed up with the doom mongers using it as an excuse not to do something.

I think you're very brave doing a gearbox.....I'll happily rebuild an engine, but I have a complete blind spot about gearboxes.....they are just big lumps full of things that look as though they'll jump out and lose themselves if I start messing about with the innards...

Yes looking at it for the 1st time proper was quite a 'oh bl*** hell moment but soon got my head around it .I was in a pair which was helpful although we had a bit of trouble reassembling it.

So anyone who drives their racing car to and from the circuit as did Alfaholic, will not be exempt. I can see this becoming even more tortuous.
