Yep! Absolutely top weekend, not even spoiled by little Chris's small and almost insignificant blunder. Bless ya mate!

Thanks for everyone that talked to me and a big thanks to Glen for putting his lid down for a small photo opportunity :)

Also thanks to everyone that showed an interest in the new magazine. Told you it wasn't a scam.

See you all at Gaydon or JAE? Minor paintwork permitting :(

Opps!

Hi Guys,

I was scheduled to be at ollerton as well on Sunday but all was going well until i reached the blyth services on the A1M then the engine on my escort decided to spew oil everywhere from the back of the engine...
To get within 7 miles of the event was just sheer bad luck, but never mind there will be other shows...
My apology to Mike, Dave, Garth and the rest of the boys as i seem to have no luck with cars at the mo!:mad:

Cheers

Stu

There's a saying, "drive it like you stole it" but Stu's just invented a new one, "Drive it like your Skyline" ;)

Have you no mechanical sympathy man ? :D

Very Good !

Jason,

You crack me up mate!;)

I do have to learn that the escort does 100 mph FLAT OUT! and the Skyline does it easily in third!

Wish i was more organised! then i would not have to drive round at break-neck speeds...

Speak to you soon pal...

there was a fair few quid in that field wasn't there!!!

ay carumba - some very nice cars indeed.

popped up on sunday afternoon to have a wander around, spent ages trying to explain to the other half how to tell the difference between her R33 and the R32's and R34's. I still don't think she gets it :rolleyes:


it was an afternoon of plusses and minuses. On the plus side she said she'd give me her GTS (still can't insure the bloody thing though) on the minus side she want's me to buy her an R34 GTR.

Still all in all a pleasant way to spend a few hours :D

errrr no actually

having no idea what anyone looked like we just wandered around like idiots knowing you would all be there but not speaking to anyone.


Besides I don't want any of you lot getting her on the modification ladder - it's bad enough that she has a Skyline and I just have an Audi as it is ;)

Should have got her to talk to Mark from Abbey Motorsport (on Abbey Stand). He could have given her a quote on dropping a GTR engine in!!! Did you seen Glen's carbon bonnet on his R34? Don't even ask how much...

Comparison's!

Dave,

I find it always good to do comparison not with real £££'s though!

For example rear diffuser on an R34 costs same as New Nissan Micra!!:p

Cheers

Carbon bonnet was very nice - I actually have a bit of a background in composites so not only do I know how much something like that would cost - I also know how much it would cost to make ;) ;)

the whole modification issue is what I'm trying to steer her away from, she is already talking about GTR rear spoilers new wheels (already has 17"s on)

the more money she spends on her skyline - the less money I have to get one for me
