In a previous life before my job in turin, I dabbled with graphics, ha! Thought you chaps would like my take on a 70s tongue in cheek advert, had a ball doing it, enjoy.

@CharlieCroker Are you coming along to Brooklands so that we can see the Red Panther in the flesh?

Banana Splits? I've got my eye on a split but it's surely not the  one from tv.  Love that advert for your car. Nice retro look! Keep it up!

Hi Luke. Good to meet you and great to see the Panther in the flesh. I think it's telling, I only took 3 pictures today - all were of your car.

Cheers Chris, like wise, nice one, those front on slammed images always bode well, hope to get down next year do it all again. Heres another photo, like there's not enough of the panther, ha!

Some interior and retro objects pictures on the superfly feature (link above) if anyone is interested. Happy Sunday, Charlie  ;-)

Looking good Luke, glad all is going well. Have you got anywhere nearer to updating the brakes on the front?

All the best Dan

I thought this picture puts how low it is in perspective with a 3 year old as tall as it, great looking retro motor!

Not as yet Dan, a few things got in the way and I never got around to it. I still have the discs and spacers so as and when time permits I'll revisit the upgrade. I'm hoping to redo bushes this winter so might be a good time to look at the discs then. 

Good day I enjoyed it, really helps when the weather's good, already looking forward to the next show.

Happy days

Sorry I didn't get to say bye Dunc, you were knee deep in esprit engine when I was leaving, thought I'd leave you to it, what was the problem? Great chatting with you, hopefully we can get a chat on again at the next show!
