    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    Could've sold that for a decent sum at the auction last week!

    The europeans seem to like taking their engines out over winter and running them on a test rig i've found. I saw it in a french Gordini/Alpine magazine a number of years ago.

    When you have something as beautiful as that why spoil it by putting it in a car, shouldn't be hidden under a bonnet.

    Definitely qualifies as eye candy....

    That L plate became my trade mark and sort of a joke. When I left the pit lane for my first ever race on a track in ZA I was stopped at the pit exit by an official and had to tie a meter long bunting tape (that red and white striped tape they use for putting around trip hazards) to the back of the engine cover as a warning for the other drivers that I am a learner/beginner...........and guess who won the race.

    I've seen Ari Vatanen and Colin Bond save BDA Escorts from this sort of lean angle and not tip in the old Castrol International rallies in Canberra hence the question.

    Might have been much funnier to point them in the wrong direction?

    Now as an R8 non-enthusiast Fran's cars and the metalic Blue R8 are very nice. So I am going to put in My Choice of R8 Eye Candy. And I will admit it is probably the wheels that do it the most justice. I would much rather put "Harry A"'s Yellow R10 here, as R10's are really nice to me.
