I keep on seeing this Morris Minor at my local railway station so I finally took a photo.

Why were you enquiring about that - you've only just fitted a stainless steel one?

I think it's the David Green MG that was at the Members Meeting.

He takes 'my line' into Woodcote, brake as late as possible through the first apex and kind of drift the car round the second giving you a good line for the chicane. He was able to carry a huge amount of speed through there.

The red Ferrari got black flagged for being too noisy, it sounded spine tinglingly beautiful! Peter (who was driving it) was driving properly hard as well!

Always liked those Lagonda's, but only to look at.

We bought one of those Yugos new for our nanny when I was about 10. We hated it, the problem was that it was reliable and seemed to be bullet proof. Yoli (our Portuguese nanny) got rear ended by a Metro all it got was a bent bumper!

I must have a photo of it somewhere.

I can see a Metro and a Renault 5 in that photo, what is the other rust bucket? Chavette, sorry Chevette! :)
