I like HK but I can't see how he could possibly play Hunt.

PS, did you know that he appears on UK TV in adverts for Direct Line (an insurance company)?

The car is at Oakmere Sportscars. It belonged to Neil Shepherdson
It used to be Tawny Brown a long time ago, Neil put the private plate on it.

He basically just plays the same character in everything. It works in some roles, but I like the UK Hunt better. Didn't know about the insurance adverts.

It belongs to Chris Neils (Oakmere) to a daughter now i think. Peter was correct in his original post. Also car was painted a few years back, for a wedding I think...

No need to apologise, Mark. Our cheap old sports-cars have become the trading chips for rich men.

Hi Pete,
Great video that!

Drove that route 2 years ago, but in my Exige. But hopefully next year I'll be driving it in my Elan, that's if I get the 5 speed box fitted by then and there's no Covid around.

cheers
