I like you Bob, I like you a lot, but having children at our age... I'm not sure about it and there is your dear lady to consider and I suppose I'd have to speak to my dear lady too.

Seriously :D Harry loves the cars, but like a lot of young people nowadays, I don't think he likes soiling his hands.

The S3 drives really well. It would cruise comfortably at 80, were that legal. It stops on a sixpence/dime and the TTR fast road comfort suspension really works well.

Cheerio!

Rob, You are a good friend. BTW, my dear lady has been SWMBO lately, but don't spread that around. :D

I'm glad that Harry likes the Elans and I understand about his hands.

It will be interesting to see how you like the S3 compared with the S2? when you get it back to stock.

"my dear lady has been SWMBO lately"

And Bob? That's a normal state of affairs for all of us.

This is a fantastic thread that I have not come across before. I am going through all the 40 odd pages with great pleasure and interest. You - or some of you - may have noticed I put a picture of our travels in each reply that I post and would encourage you all to do the same. It makes it so much more fun to see where you have all been. Except the garage queens of course!!

Hadn't realised the pictures are max 400 pixels on this site - so in my pics from previous post (4 posts back) you can't really see the interesting bits clearly. So here are zoomed bits, and also a third pic. Gordon

Never quite comfortable in traffic. But at least parking was no problem. Holiday here.

What winter? 79 degrees F (26 deg C).
