Jules, that is a fantastic collection. The Gixxer and Spondon Bandit are truly works of art. I used to hanker after an RS 2000 when I was a teen, but they were still too expensive to buy and insure, and I had to wait until the 2002 Focus RS came out before I popped my Ford RS cherry.
I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone in July now. Most of the folks I know round here are totally indifferent to cars,and I'm usually seen as someone even worse than a Sci-fi geek...a car bore.
I take it you're a 40 something, with that original Raleigh chopper, complete with ball smasher gear change.

Yeh 48, so I'm big into my 70's & 80's stuff. I had an orange chopper just like this one, Xmas day 73, so I looked round for ages to find, this one. I bought to go in my 70's inspired room. You ready for this !!!!

Obvious as it sounds, when looking to do it, I googled '70's wallpaper' & the first one that comes up is called 'wallpaper from the 70's' & there is a room done with this paper. I thought thats it, that's the one straight away.

Holy moly, you guys have some nice toys. I had to sell 2 BMW's to get my Camaro (a 318is and a 645ci). Now I just have the Camaro, a rather sensible Mitsubishi Outlander (2012) which is supposed to be a tow car for my in progress track toy BMW 323i (1998).

I was thinking,if you only read this forum,and didn't watch the news, you would never think there was a recession.

73 454 4 speed corvette and the SS fit nicely in the garage together.

The SS looks like a giant compared to the corvette.

Yes, the size difference is more than I would have imagined, having never seen the two together before. Beautiful colour on the Corvette. I wish GM would come up with something like that for the Camaro.
