    I'm cursed by having good taste but poor judgement. I would hate to tell you why I sold my Z/28. So I'm not.

    I'm rather partial to burled walnut. I'd have to sit on the ostrich seats before deciding, but they have a certain je ne sais quoi.

    then i sold it and bought a new jeep (children and a love of fishing and camping)
    Thinking about selling that for a used ducato and fitting it out as a motorhome...

    I know it isn't Friday but I wanted to share one of my recent automotive experiences. I was lucky enough to pilot a 1966 Mercedes 250SL on the Copperstate 1000. If you're a gear head you owe it to yourself to do a rally like this one, it was amazing fun! Here are some photos:

    My contribution, although a couple of days late.:)

    Just finished the blue and orange one which is a bit of a beast with a fully worked 200cc engine and the other is a stock 63 VBB 150 that I have had for a few years.

    JCW again, a few shots of the sound system installation. Heated hand stitched leather Recaros in the back ground, very comfortable wee chairs :)

    Be nice to your children, they will be the ones to choose your retirement home (and visit, or not.)


    Is playing your music too loud against the law in scotland?

    If I have been out in it always leave the radio tuned/programmed to Classic FM :D Never understand when you have a sweet sounding motor you have to drown it out with some electronic rubbish ? Old man talking !!!
