Would like to compare greens with you but mine is only coming back from paint on Monday. Then I can see if the new green is better than the old green!. Going to be lucky to get it back together this month.

Claire did say that it was highly unlikely you’d choose the motorway as your route. Glad you’re ok Joe

I'm so sorry to hear about this, hope the occupants are going to be OK with no serious injuries.
We await further news.

Obviously Andrew is correct in saying that people cannot be replaced, but the same holds true for V8Ss. Getting very scarce now.

I can't help wondering if it is Paul ( OldredV8S ) and son Ben.

Whoever it is, you have our full support if there's anything we can do to help.

Please keep us posted.

Hi Guys.
Thanks for your thoughts... I can confirm it was me and my Blue V8S (K32 XHA)

White van man has accepted full liability... it will be a difficult car to replace... but I'm back at work today, so the car took the brunt of it..

Hopefully I'll find something to tempt me back on the road again..

Great to hear you're OK. Is the car really beyond repair? This was mine after a loosing it in similar weather conditions a few years back.



Looks bad doesn't it? Luckily the chassis/steering wasn't damaged and the bonnet took most of the impact so it was all cosmetic (bloody expensive cosmetics though!). Anyway It wasn't written off, so no 'Cat C' and it was on the Timeline yesterday. "What man has made man can make again" (*).

Obviously it depends on how much damage the car sustained but PM me if you want to know how I did it.

Good luck thumbup

(*) the spot light pods off my old bonnet are now part of someone else's S3 bonnet and, as you can see, the petrol was recycled pretty quickly. 'S' owners don't miss an opportunity to recycle thumbup

Hi Darren,

Don't you know, but glad to hear you're OK. We had that car in briefly a couple of years ago at Southways, when a chap called Chris owned it. He was selling it, and I had to restrain myself from trying to fund it myself! I've got a few pics of it somewhere, and I remember it because it was a cat-equipped car (which is quite rare), so it had the Chimaera exhaust headers etc.

Cars can be replaced, people can't. smile
