Aren't the press great? For the record:

1. I'm not a GP
2. I dont earn anyway near 100,000 let alone 250,000.
3. I have no wife, expensive or otherwise. Or kids. Or a Volvo. Lucky me.
4. As much as possible on holidays but 10k, behave.
5. I bought the RIBeye because I was bored at being shown boats that looked like someone had been sick in them. Repeatedly. Besides its great fun, does exactly what I want it to do, is in great nick and was built in Dartmouth just down the road. And its yellow....hooray!!

Now where were we. Who's sploshing whos hull?

Baited!....Don't get sucked in Doc! They'll be digging a hole for you next

Shit to be honest-want to swap? It just keeps on going wrong and it's always little things. I'm going to have to get rid and get another trooper I think. Shame really, I like the car.
