Aw Jason , I bought a tin of our spam ( might be the same stuff ? ) , ugh , right up there with tinned corned beef . I guess if you were starving it would be a welcome sight. I do like tinned lambs tongues but I havnt seen them for years and pressed ox tongues pretty good too. Huh , no wonder I keep getting fatter 😀

That's a lovely car Andy, bet it turns a few heads too. The black wheels really suit the colour of the car.

Hi Nick,
Yes it's a big old boat :) Although when you drive it it doesn't seem big.

Not had any noise complaints, but I haven't driven it before 10.00. When it goes out on a Sunday at 07.00 I'll have to escape quick, although the neighbours either side love the car :cheers:

Hi Paul,
As with the Capri, people that like cars look and those that don't won't take any notice.

I always said when I got one I wanted silver wheels, but you're right black wheels suit the silver paint and to be fair I prefer the black on any colour Mustang :cool:
