Hey Embs, us older married blokes have nothing much left. When we want to chase something all we can do is run to the end of our chain and bark! Don't take that away from us :P

I'm with Snurf, that Ingrid is a bit tidy, cant believe old Salvo hasn't sucumbed yet.

Think i'd better keep away from that bushy forest, or I'll be dead lumber! Then again, the forest does kinda fit with the steamed up back windows of the #33 Focus

No live dangerously, Village centre for mine!

IT'S ARRIVED!!! :D

The cars arrived this morning, delivered to our local sports and community centre. I've yet to open it but it does say that it came from Greece and I'm not expecting anything else from there.

So, we have all our eggs in a row. Let's hope they turn into ducks. There are a lot of balls in the air on this project, and two of them are mine. :wacko:

Hi Graham

Glad to hear the cars made it over from Greece.

Good luck with your round and I hope it all runs smoothly.

Sorry I can't be there this weekend, but I am competing at Wolves in their Euro-Jap Saloons event this week.

Each of the members of Team Isle of Man (Andy White, Brian Harrison and I) will be driving a Ford Zodiac MkIII.

Cheers
Dave

Glad to see the art of the double entendre isn't dead, and also the cars have arrived safely!


That reminds me of the old joke....."so this young lady walks into a bar and asks for a double entendre.............."

Isn't it quite a buzz when you get your hands on it and open it up.? I really enjoyed unwrapping them and looking at everyone else's efforts.

Enjoy your time with them, it was such a different experience for me, never having been involved Ian proxy event before.
