Speaking of the Olympus, My grandad was the inventor of that piece of metal! he then went on to merge it with the vulcan as there were arguments at the time with putting crapper engines in there! Plus you'll remember all the probs they had with the Canberra,
He's still got all the original docs, drawings and the final mark up manuals on the first series (when he worked for bristol aero)
After bristol went **** up, he went onto work for rolls till he couldn't design no more!

Member car:

The train :(

Some gaffer / Duct tape has been holding the driver's side mirror on to the door of the Gtv for over a year now - even at high speed it doesn't wobble.

If you look carefully, you might just be able to see it at work on my avatar.

Apparently as my Spider is a Phase 1 that part is no longer available so I'm thinking of starting my silicone implants off by replacing this - anybody know off hand the size of the pipe?
