  1. Robin that literally mad me spill my coffee laughing! - Nice though James - it literally could be anything but could quite possibly be off the Air-Cannon - think you might need some proof though before sticking it on fleabay for a mean there were no number plates down there? Barbara Bach's knickers at least!!
  2. Had a great Petrolheads day on Saturday - Got to play with some Aston's in the morning as one of my sons works there and it was the Bi-annual employee family open day - this was fantastic - Then the Midlands Italian car day in the afternoon at the Jag Classic works in my hometime Cov - great to see great Jags still being made here - though the Reborn's and Recreation's were light years better in terms of quality than anything that ever left Browns Lane! (Mr K will like these....................)
  3. You'll probably like the rest of them then - especially the Miura in the snow. Simon Kidston has some amazing stock and deals in some of the finest well as running the Villa D'este amongst others...............
  4. Award for most awesome Video of the Summer goes to ..................................
  5. Not quite today but I hit the half century last month - Thanks to my sister.......................
  6. I like the revision - looks nice and Retro and reminds me of the great Lotus days. I suppose some would argue they should be looking forward with the Evija launch but its ok by me. I think the McLaren 'swoosh' thing is naff.............
  7. Nice one Bibs - great to hear - Newey just designed the Valkyrie - he has not had to engineer it!
  8. Although ACBC is not here - does Mr K approve............that's what I would like to know!
  9. A great move by Lotus IMO - There is a lack of awareness and significance of Lotus given the timespan for the current generation to recognise Lotus of old and the amazing history in F1. One of my sons works on future model for Aston Martin - he has been immersed in Lotus 'folklore' by me so naturally aware of the past given my Esprit has been with me for longer than he has. Reckons the word at AM is a nod of acknowledgment from a sleeping great. I've seen the posts about Chapman not approving due to weight etc. but I don't think Colin could ever had foreseen where the Car industry would be going and the sudden leap in to battery technology we are seeing. Yes the idea was there but until Tesla came along the thought of a battery vehicle to the 60's/70's generation was a Milk Float.............
  10. Looks fantastic - where was the launch held?
  11. Anyone else been following the latest 'goings'-on' with Haas and Rich Energy? Seems William Storey the drinks company CEO really is like David Thieme in more ways than one!

    Nice unusual colour -don't think I have seen that before in an early X180
  13. Was never a fan of those wheels especially in white...........................
  14. Yes the work on the slammed cars is amazing but the look is too far for me on those. The lower the more exotic but there is a limit
  15. Not knocking anything Mark - its your car and it still looks great mate. Bigger wheels always look superb especially with a lower ride (although there can be a limit for me!) And that colour is fantastic. There is also something so period and correct about velour interiors especially in chocolate/brown. I used to love it when they called it Tobacco - conjured up all sorts of images of wealthy magnates - suppose its not exactly PC now - keep going and best of luck with it!
