  1. So how are you going to fit a bigger intercooler into that tiny engine bay with that huge V6 already crammed in there?
  2. Similar for us, our son is 13 this year and has just started year 8.
  3. Yes it was. How is Jenson? How old is he now? Do you still have access to the Blueyonder email address the account is registered to?
  4. If you were signed up previously, your account should still be active on here? Do you remember the registered username or email address?
  5. Engages subliminal messaging mode: Do it do it do it do it do it do it
  6. Errrrm, that's a really tough decision..... Let me think a while Definitely no way!
  7. Indeed, the wreckage was located as early as one day after the crash.....but not recovered for another 34 years across 2000/2001. Personally I thought at the time (and still do now) that both the boat and Campbell should have been left to Rest together In Peace......but what's done is done and I'd wager that if he could have his say now, he'd want his boat out on the water doing what it was designed and built for.
  8. Yes, I see it a similar way @katana @Rally Pack 2000 does it belong to them? Or does half of it belong to them? Does the guy who has it have any claim on salvage rights? Who funded its recovery and restoration after all?
  9. Who has followed this story and where do you stand on it? Should it be returned to the museum complete? Or stay with the restorer and be used on the water? I guess most will agree that what should not happen is for the original and the new sections to be cut apart and go their separate ways? I am at a loss to understand why it can't be shared, say on display in the museum in winter and on the water putting on displays in summer.

  10. That wouldn't actually qualify as a road here..................and anyway, isn't that more of a sink hole than a pot hole?
  11. I see @deltamals mk3 Tina there I keep missing these local shows.....but rarely seem to have the spare time to attend them even if I do know about them
  12. The other story from that trip that I didn't mention was this cavernous pothole in their car park that I hit in the dark and trashed one of my alloys in. Livid didn't cut it. One new alloy wheel, a pair of front tyres and a 4 wheel alignment check layer, to their credit the park agreed to foot the bill....albeit without admission of liability
  13. #Topical @Rally Pack 2000 anything that pisses Macron off is alright by me.
  14. He trained in the RN as a metalworker (same as me) a Naval career equips you equally well with drinking skills 🍻
