Oh John . . .

Thanks for the great guinea pig shot, but I was thinking of the Orsom Weels car . . . :mrgreen:

But not that guinea pigs are unimportant . . . :wink:

Hello chap's,
Will attempt to sort some pics of car although I don't think I can compete with Guinea pigs performing ballancing acts, if I could have kept the Strombergs that well ballanced on my old +2 I probably wouldn't have converted to Webbers! All the pics I have of my +2 are 'real' pics, remember when we had to put those cylinder things in the back of the camera & then send them off to the magician to have them converted into images that had little resemblance of the subject you were sure you took ? Ah, those were the day's.... sorry, I digress, nearly got all misty eyed there. Anyway, once I can get the scanner & computer to talk to one another without falling out like a pair of spoilt siblings, I'll scan up some photo's &, attempt to share them with you. I think I'd rather change the points on a twincam than try to get a computer to do what I want it to :lol:
Regards, Tim
