And when you do, could you please tell me how, Ted ? I spent a fun afternoon on a bouncy castle, trying to drink bottles of Beck's simultaneously.

Suffice to say it can't really be done.

Just like to say thanks to all the people kind enough to post the Pic links - I've spent a long time looking at each & every one! And for the possitive comments relating to my GTR. Only one question to be asked ... When is the next meet DON ???????

Didn't get round to asking, what are those alloys you're running? They certainly look the part!

So, no-one got a picture of the police van & camera, then?



No, but I think I saw Carzee "waving"?. Or some kind of hand signal.

Excellent pictures peeps, at this rate I won't need to buy a digi camera, just cut and paste the luvverly snaps you've all put on here
GavinR, just been looking at the reversing light thing again (thought I'd cleared it before now), was it both reversing lamps or just the left hand one flickering?
I'm also concerned after your comments that you could hear my car in front of you, normally that'll be OK and the desired effect but you drive a V8 Wedge for f**ks sake, perhaps I should look at that as well..
Don when did you say the next one was? I need to win another prize from the Optimax scratch cards

Harry,
It was both reversing lights flickering on and off occasionally. Over bumps? Scared the sh@t off me the first time it happened, I thought I was gonna be eating S gearbox.
Yeah, I think I need a new slightly less neighbour frendly pipe. Maybe a 4.6 conversion, bigger brakes, roll bar, new shocks. Oh god don't get me started!
The S did sound superb on full throttle. I obviouslly coundn't hear it when I put the boot in though.

Well. I did think of asking about Pie at the Gamekeepers as an alternative grub option....

If we get the great PetrolTed (all hail!) to visit as guest of honour on another occasion I'm sure we can make sure some Melton Mowbray's are on offer!

Yeah, but it was AFTER he'd passed the van - the wuss.

Thanx Beano, sorry I never got to talk on Sun! They're BK Racing wheels 17" and 16".

I saw our friend with the van along the A33, parked up just north of the Wellington Hotel this morning. Looks like Hants are doing our area for a while, unless Basingstoke have "invested" in their own set-up...

Isn't it Berkshire (Thames Valley) by the time you get upto the Wellington?

Now I'll have to check...

But from memory, I thought the border (as sign-posted) was nearer to the start of the dual-carriageway section.

[some short time later...]

It appears that I am sad enough to look it up. I just couldn't help myself.

Aha.. I see.. fair enough.. I looked it up too, but I used streetmap and that just didn't help at all - so at least you succeeded!

Useless fact of the day:
Did you know that houses in Yateley can be in any one of 3 counties?
Most of Yateley is in Hampshire, but parts are in Berkshire and Surrey.
