i honestly never expected this - i was stunned when i got the phone call and email - i've literally never won anything sizeable until now.

its a huge shame the 34gtr didn't go up for sale and in all honesty if someone would pass me a pretty penny for my silly spec 32 gtr i'd actually look into this car... altho wife says her supercharged mustang is first in line lol

regarding the money... its likely some/most/nearly-all of it will end up going on a replacement hip and physio and docs appointments.

I've had health beyond hell over 2017 and into 2018 yep thats right... replacement hip at 42... i have 10 years of crazy skating as a kid, 25 years of martial arts and some seriously hard slam-openings under a parachute to thank for that.. not to mention two parents who suffer from osteo arthritis so basically i'm stuffed.
I paid out my pocket for spine/steroid injections earlier this year and i'm not done yet. Easy come easy go it seems. I've been a medicated zombie this year doped up for months on buckets of tablets that basically make me drool and in jan/feb i was basically unable to walk and seriously wondering if i'm one bad twist away from paralysis. its not been a fun time especially when i was down in London last year on Thor Ragnarok without my family and hobbling around in pain.

anyway just wanted to update this thread and let everyone know. I'll get a little vid up soon.
To everyone that entered i'm sorry you didn't win but like i say hip surgery is next for me, so thats where basically this money will end up going (fyi 3 year waiting list on NHS assuming your liver doesn't fail from the tablets) - thankyou for entering and giving me a chance at keeping my legs ...i cant find the heart emoji on here sadly.

ta
ant
long-time gtroc goober.
Brilliant outcome.

I wonder if some posters will rethink their earlier comments in this topic now this has come to light.

Not really.

I’m very happy he has won, it’s going to really help him and that’s fantastic.

Can’t help but think what £60k would do for him if he won/sold the R34 he should’ve won though.

I did all I could beyond giving away my car for £15k, now correct me if I'm wrong but I don't know anyone who would do that unless there a millionaire.

I’m not knocking what you had to do, you did what was best in the end with what was, IMHO, a flawed idea in the first place.

Hopefully lessons learned for all.

I think we'll close this now. I have to admit, I also think it was a flawed idea but it was worth a try. Glad that Ant got the money as it sounds like he needs it more than a lot of us. OP - this can be reopened if you feel I've closed it prematurely but I think enough people have had their say now.

Thanks.
