Bother! I didn't realise. Spent Kings day in a hotel room, who wants to go to a party in Eindhoven of 200,000 people wearing orange and I'm the only one not!
Would have borrowed you something orange. Shirt ... glasses .... hat .... No orange dolomites anymore I'm afraid.

Out and about today in the Dolomite passed a Jowett Jupiter, an early Ford Mustang in convoy with a Jaguar 140, followed a little later by a late Mustang convertible driven by a Billy Conoly look alike. His long white hair blowing in the breeze and white goatie and tash. Not long after a Ford Model A custom hot rod went past looking superb. Then to finish a Triumph Stag who indulged in mutual appreciation waves and thumbs up.

And the Dolly clicked over 44444 miles on the way home. Now on 44464.

Out in the Dolly this morning travelling opposite came a MK2 Jag in BRG and a little later an Aston Martin DB4. Looked fabulous in its dark blue livery and the sound was awesome. Can't remember the last time I saw one of those on the road, driver gave me a nod and I gave him a thumbs up.

Its amazing what you see on the M3 !
Looked a bit out of place, but maybe it was cheaper than renting track time off British Rail.
It is 34018 btw.
Yes, Wave wave ! I was the old boy in the white Dolomite if the support van reads this.
