Well richard will be but yet again Gordon won't - it's really not worth getting him up and dressed in time I am afraid

Looking forward to it... trailering my Isetta down from Liverpool to Three Counties Showground behind my campervan on the Thursday, and booked in to the Morgan Factory visit at 2:30pm...

There will always be winners and losers depending where you live when it comes to the National but also it depends on how badly you want to go.

the "squiggles" bob are a home made smiley and therefore more worthwhile - unless he's a sill old twit who didn't realise you could just click on the icon above  ;) - surely not !

Oi!
I learned to use computers so long ago that I can talk about baud rates on modems, cassette tapes with programs on them and even 8 inch floppies! I remember when Vic was not a decongestant but a type of computer and the days when Asteroids was state of the art in graphics! Or even when a Mac was a raincoat and Apples were called Lisa.

If only my heap of poo was MoT'd or even running ...

:-(

Perhaps I should bring it along and we can diagnose the issue with it?

What is the car by the way? Schmitt? You must bring it along and you never know we may get it running on the spot!
I still dont see how a few squiggles make a smiley though! :D

Ignore richards cheekyness,, none of his cars work either! ;D

Well only a few days to go now until the national. Weather forecast is looking favourable. Still like to know who on the forum is going?
