  1. Mike spot on mate (i gave up after 3 beers btw) it amazes me that anyone can control your life it is yours surely. Now i am a very luck chap i very nearly didn't make it a few years ago, well 8 hours later and it would have all over, but i was 42 with a family, i think, (bit sketchy about that time mainly due to morphine) and the NHS saved my life i know how much it cost to look after me because i now have a beer with my surgeon every now and then, Rob Bentley if you fancy googling him. We have raised a good few quid for Kings but it is a drop in the ocean really, the NHS maybe a lot
  2. that should say I went to check it out, and the bullet holes are there.
  3. @mpx you are totally right, I have an interesting medical history which means pretty much every time i get a cold I have to bugger off to A&E for a CT scan. During one of these visits I had long chat with an ex GP who now worked there. I asked him why (and i swear on my sons life this is true) he said he was so pissed off (actual words) with looking after people who wanted their life to end or he knew he couldn't really help and not spending time with the ones he could. I was in there about 20 mins and if you know A&E i am sure this would have annoyed you but he was really passio
  4. 100% behind you Barrie, what is that all about?? Now if they paid you a £1000 or even £500 that would make sense. I never knew this was how it works. What a weird world we live in! Or maybe I am just skint
  5. Just about to get on a flight mate. Will take a pic and PM you when I get back next week.
  6. Sparky I got a job for you as well when you got some time
  7. Firstly how good is Sketch Up. Had a bit of a tear up with my Architect after his initial ideas he wanted 48k to do the design!! So stuck myself on a 2 day SU course and after 2 weeks of playing around in the evening i am about 60% there. got a lot to do but had some fun putting the start of the garage and office in the garden. It looks a bit odd as i am on a sloping site but it is right to the millimetre. Now on to landscaping, the drive and bathrooms. One phenomenal bit of software and bit of Lotus art to look at when I am doing a barby
  8. Sparky, how bad was this car, it is a testament to Lotus that it ran at all. I really hope you get it all sorted, following with interest. Took mine out for the first time in two weeks started sort of first time, Esprit and the sun out lovely
  9. Charlie, amazing the noise that car can make staying below 70mph ? More amazing is that it looks like Chris washed his Excel !
  10. Tocus I am pretty sure it is 5.5 litres from empty and Gerald told me that, but one call to him will confirm I might be wrong so please ch ck. For the record it's the one thing that I hate doing as it is so hit and miss. I am more than happy if someone has a technique for this.
  11. Fabian, you don't need to sympathise as you know i love your S1 it doesn't try to be a submarine it just has little touches that make it just so, i am struggling with should i restore mine to mint (excluding an out of my hands transport problem) or leave it with scars it has gathered. i just think they are so rare to the point that apart form TLF meetings i have not seen one on the road for at least 20 years. i think originality is probably king, Saying that Jonny 's car would be in my garage tomorrow if i won the lottery and even then i am not sure he would sell it, but that is
  12. Fabian I am actually really pleased about this to be honest and with Andy all the way. I think even if you find a copper dry sump with comps forget the ski racks and return it to Bond spec but without them bits. Every time i see a DB5 done a bit like Bond i think that is a bit sad. Now your S1 is murder some members of the family gorgeous but it is pretty much standard and i rather like the button on the gear knob. Now saying that as you know i would love a set of Comps but I wouldn't change it to 4 stud so it could always go back to BBS. Just my little bit, not wishing to offend
  13. George brilliant my friend. Really enjoyed that
  14. John shouldn't be a problem getting up to you. I am only about a 700 miles behind you it's been a mad few weeks. Had an interesting drive back from Nottingham on Sat, spent most of the M11 trying to get a Audi R8 out of the way I really needed to be somewhere. I was for the record driving this. We finally got past him only to have a young girl in a Toyota Yaris sitting about 6mm from my bumper. We moved over and spent the next 10 miles pissing ourselves laughing as she tail gated everyone, she was absolutely flying. Not sure how the cat pic got on here. 2hrs 23mins Nottingham to Kent
  15. John have you got any more pics of the S1? How was it in your opinion. Sorry about not replying to your email. I am in the office tomorrow mate will reply then. Should be good for the Scotland bash.
  16. I am really gutted I didn't make this as I just noticed Mr Wadey driving the EXIGE GO car. I haven't seen him in a while and it would have been great to catch up. Looks like a great day out. Jonny your car is wonderful.
  17. David sorry mate I haven't done this yet although I have repaired the doors. Andy that would be a great help
  18. Paul I was tempted, but then realised I didn't have any money! Stunning car assume this is going towards the E type and that is no bad thing. I just need to throw a few parents off Beachy Head and it would be mine ?
  19. Barry, you should have bought a Merc Vito Auto with comfort seats. I am currently in a hotel in Nottingham after driving it for 4 hours in it I swear it is the most comfortable van/car i have ever owned. I got last inline of the last model (just checking I am on topic here aren't I) so was cheaper than a transit. Simon i have sympathy for you, but we are all here to help but we are passionate about our cars, the members on here will help with any problem and a few have leads into the people that can do just that if you are struggling. I think that is their point. No point if you have fal
  20. Chaps, I am going to miss this one which i am genuinely gutted about as we have end of season Rugby dinner for the boys on Sunday. Barrie we will get to meet at some point I am sure. Cheers Danny
  21. Dave if you make Nottingham I am working up there and staying Thursday so if you want a beer..............?
  22. Hi Dean, sorry just got back from rugby tour which I am pleased to report that Bromley RFC won the cup and didn't lose a game. I was intending to start today but most of my blood is currently about 54% proof! Hopefully next weekend mate.
  23. 43 you lucky git. HB birthday
