    Yay, torque steer city! I worked at a bodyshop in the '80's that had a contract with a Fiat dealership that was owned by Stu Vallance & Keith Bartlett. I had to deliver Bartletts 130 Abarth after we'd fitted a whole new N/S/R corner, the bloody thing darted across the Old Kent Road the first time I floored it, caught me slightly unawares! It was a right laugh once you were used to it though.
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.

    You want to go in the shop in East Worthing, "THE MILITARY MAN" he goes all over the world digging up battle fields, he has a chunk of a crashed plane in the corner of the shop(well he did the other day, he also had a german tank commanders wrap, which still had all the insigna and medals on that was found in a Normandy barn and an mg42 dug up in belgium). The shops worth a visit.
    I have a motorcycle as i can't afford a ROD, but i can have as many rods as i like in 1/24th.

    Opposite the smugglers pub (the ham), you can't miss it, when its open there is shell outside about the size of an 88.
