One guy asked if it was a genuine spike anderson and then got talking he got a mate that owns sux the white samuri mentioned he talked to Johnny in Cumbria . Few other classic there aswell parked next to a tr4 that was nice he likes the datsun aswell

That sounds like a good day. Iíve spent the weekend playing with my throttle position & progression hole display, which lead me to move the 3rd progression hole nearer the 2nd to stop it going lean between them. Now it just goes lean after the 3rd :-/

That will be Dick Grandison with the white car. Penistone - my daughter lived there and it's a lovely place - think she'll move back one day.

Took the silver/rust car to "Classic's on the beech" at sunny southend-on-sea. It was a glorious day and proper T shirt weather. The turnout was superb with a great selection of cars from a DB2 and 1965 190sl to rat rods and campers.
