I see the Cossie has been mentioned. I won't spoil this for anyone waiting to see it, b...

This also means my planned get together on Sat night (Which with a certain friend, usually means deleting t...

Classic car restoration??? Anyone???

Hi All, Just seen this.... Bloody worrying and the Poor buggers who have lost a car in the process!!!
