I know Taps has said Ford Fair but has he said what year?     Knowing my luck I'll get struck down by a nasty hospitalising illness now and struggle LOL. Gonna be a good year for Ford Fair.

Hang on here a mo, do I get to put mine in Barrys work shop for a month for him to do jobs on it   , as that alters the odds somewhat    

And its the cars make it onto the stand under there own steam just so we get the rules right

LOL mine drives just doesn't look pretty yet. I'm at a slight disadvantage on the comfort stakes too - I'm sitting on a wheel rim in the footwell :-( No posh sofa and armchairs for me :-( Gotta get me finger out and get it done. Welding up the tunnel tonight. After that it's full steam ahead.

 Didn't we have to push you back on last year

I think I will be lucky if I have the scorpio back on the road, let alone the sapphy finished. That would leave me in The MK1 24v Mondeo....

BUT.. I get my nice new garage in 2 weeks, so things may speed up....

Our twat usually puts next doors letters in our box and ours in the next street. Lost count of the number of times the credit card payment has been late because of it.

LOL that's cheating - a 200 Ton transfer press in Genk did the hard bit       All you did was get your electric Pritt stick out and glue it in.

PMSL the Tapsmobile will look great with its suppliers logo's on the body - ILVA, Kingdom of Leather and Habitat      Maybe the patio heater and BBQ might slow it down on the Hangar Straight though??

Baz was right - on any other site this would be taken the wrong way      love it. All hail Ford Power. Taps and MOB - hats off to ya. Other sites don't come close!!

Looking good Taps. Could do with Capri / New Holland tractor blue rocker covers though    

Measuring up for my seat mounts tomorrow - another job for the electric Pritt stick before the final coat of white to the interior. Won't be long before the cage goes in.

Really looking forward to seeing 2 very different 24v powered 3 doors taking pride of place at Silverstone. Also looking forward to that bacon buttie - crispy with brown sauce   yum.
