Good luck boys.

I too will be emulating the great man's driving style.........in about 15 years when the car is finished :oops: :oops:

There is a slim chance that RWSC may even finish his before me!!!!!!!! :lol:

Poor choice of word Lee ...........slim .......when you consider the pair of us ............... fat chance would be more appropriate.


TP was always ready with a funny line/reply. I always remember him being interviewed during a rally when he had a stinking cold. Funny what sticks in your mind.
