10 years since first UK R35 delivered

Am I the only person on here who remembers the epic day 10 years ago when the first UK R35s were delivered in my case at 07:29 the ring time?
Where’s Zed Ed, Ben Linney, Phil and John K?
Never thought I would still have one as my daily driver and have now done over 100,000 miles and 40 track days as my only daily drivers.
Still can’t think of a better car to own for the money

I got married in '09 and had Linneys 35, one of the very first in the country as a wedding car.

IIRC RobbieJ and Linney were more or less the first ones in the UK? Both were imports.

I was invited - with my KPGC10 - to the Press Day event for the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It was mid April 2008.

Bob Neville from RJN Motorsport brought this R35 along for Nissan:
