Well you say you saw the Dr at Dunton on Sunday and that obviously hasn't helped, so you could do better by putting a picture of a 2.8 on there!

As we all know they are far superior :wave: :lol:

Anyway, after all this 50th talk, is there anyone left on here who came to the 30th Birthday do at the Norfolk Showground in 1999?
I tried to get a 'Mile of Capris'. Failed, but we did get 133 there and it was a brilliant day out. Had people from Manchester, Newcastle, a mini-convoy from Brighton (picking up others on the way).

It nearly killed me organising it, but happy memories.
