Jimbo....you are not alone......

get me very very intoxicated one night and I will tell you of an advanced PBI, a Bond Bug, South Parade Pier, an MGB roadster, a Red speed boat with a broken engine and a pleasure boat filled with grockles.
Ahhhhh happy days.

Robin

Thankyou all for your kind words and support - Rich, I'll get you later! That pint I owe you for pulling me out has just been cancelled!!!

Stu - Disco, or Trooper at the moment, waiting for monday to be convinced that a disco is really what I want!!

Robin - I'll bring the tequila, and listen intently

All is now well, the car is out, and I drove it home, worked from 11pm to 3am at a Baguette Shop, and drove straight to my parents house in kent where I am now sitting, being plied with wine by my father to alleviate my depression from no longer being a teenager!

Looking forward to the solent meet on Monday, hoping the car makes it, that gravel in the church car park could get tricky!
