I think that you'll find it's "Wankel" old boy, unless you meant something totally different and the cat trod on the "E" and the "L".

OK - think I'll get the Ribeye 600 with the Yamaha 115 as it sounds the nicest and me mum liked the comfy back seat, the labrador also liked it and what he says goes!

If buying a Ribeye 600 with a 115 Yam is a really bad idea for any reason please post otherwise I think I'm going to spend a bit of money I can't really afford soon!

NSU Ro80 is the one i always remember, very interesting cars for their year, a guy had one just down the road from us and the guy opposite him had a Jag E type in red with a v12, used to stand there for hours staring at it as a nipper

of course we had a riley kestrel at that time and my father was the slowest driver in the world, used to do my head in which is why i am the complete opposite i guess both in driving style and choice of cars!!

the old days eh!!
