On the way home from work today in slow moving traffic and a S1 rocked up alongside me and beeped his horn ( steady on Nigel) so we went side by side for a bit chatting with the windows down :D Have to say I enjoyed that

If I could afford to keep it and get a 25th Anni MX5 I would all day long but I can't do both and have a life so it will have to go unfortunately but on the flip side I passed two 5's on the way home aswell and I was like yep I could see myself in one of those ;)

Ranjan,
As a substitute we visited the Warner Bros studios which was good and thought about what we were “missing”
I don’t miss finance and forecasting meetings!

On leaving Lido di Jesolo (Venice) the airport bus went by a Tit Grey RX8 parked up in front of a house.
Speedhunters sun-strip and much wang-age. No time to get phone out to take pic.

Hadn't seen one in the 10 days I'd been there.
Black Cherry Mica
JDM Evolve. 192 6 spd manual from auto
I do not spook easily and those who think I do are wasting their time with their surprise attacks.
Women feel comfortable in my presence, with my tales of sexual experimentation both on the high seas and on railway property.
I am a wizard with star shaped Chinese weaponry, which I throw accurately and without due for-thought.

Three RX8s today, and an added bonus, 30th Anniversary MX-5

Also 3 bay-window campers, which are always a welcome sight
