Disappointed in the response to my clip really . I expected to be hearing gasps of amazement and admiration. Aren't you all surprised by the spirited performance of this Gordon ?

 It is a good clip of film, maybe the only existing footage of one moving under its own power but all it proves is that It goes through puddles at 20mph, why is it spirited? To convince us to want one you have to finish your restoration and take us all for a ride in it. :o

Yep, we could do that for a laugh, I'm not sure Robs knees would take it though.
