Re: RS2800 Prototype

I do indeed have your book Steve, the posh version at that too ;) …… though sadly I have had precious little time to get very far into it, it will however not be an ornament, I will get to it properly one of these days ;)

Re: RS2800 Prototype

Have to agree, one of the reasons I sort out a mk3 Ghia over a "S" model was the look & feel of the interior, so pleased when I found my 81 Cobalt Blue with blue Verona interior ;)

I'll forgive you :D

I haven't watched it for years, too bloody depressing, even the wife hasn't watched it for 5 years plus, it gets instantly switched over should it accidently find itself sullying our screen :xd:

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

Overall ...

When SWMBO has been out, its not unknown for the dishwasher to have been used for the odd item to have found its way through a cycle :D
