Well, everyone else seems to have one so why shouldn't we?

Time to say something interesting, no pressure

Evening
Just let folks know, we have a new rep for Yorkshire ... me !
It was thought that with Yorkshire covering such a large area, a rep based further south might be able to get more South Yorkshire owners involved in meets, events and the like, so here I am.
I'll sort a meet out in the next couple of weeks when we gain the extra daylight and if folks come along we can decide on other things.
Anyways I'm Kev and cheers. ........

If it hasn't already got one save for a quaife or q2 diff, transforms the cornering performance

I might get one just in case Sergio doesn't bring out a Giulia anytime soon

Looking forward to seeing Kev's GTV soon, but I;m afraid it'll tempt me further towards the V6 darkside .

PS Kev, Sarah wants to know what colour is it?

I've got Ghost in the Shell but not watched in donkeys years, had vivid memory of the scene where a guy gets blown away by riot police.

Had quite a bit of Manga years ago, Urotsukidoji, Fist of the North Star, etc.

Do have Akira on BluRay though, still a great piece of cinema.
