Now you can see why the original thread on the AMOC forum only gets updated once or twice a day - because it's not full of stuff and nonsense hehe
hehe

I haven't been on the site for a while...is the topic a general one or is it model specific?

I'm not an admirer of the segregation approach as I wouldn't have open access to most of the other owners on here and whilst that would give me more time with me old mate Marcos I would be stuck in the same room as George biggrin

Inspired by this forum, and sharing some of the OCD tendencies of some fellow members, I took delivery last week of various new - to me - cleaning products (snow foam, iron x, 303 fabric cleaner etc etc). I then spent yesterday putting them to good use. Today, looking for any excuse, I decided to get my MoT done early. The test centre I chose was by no means the closest to me, and I do not seem to have found the quickest way home. But with the top down and the sun shining... Bliss! smile

Yesterday got the car out of the garage, dropped the roof, drove 30 mins to the airfield, shed the surly bonds of earth for just over an hour, got back in the car and had a blast home - perfection!! cloud9

Don't be silly, Neil, George doesn't use chloroform on his relatives nono
Not a relative and no chloroform was used. Although a bottle of champagne may have been purchased.

No, the model areas are all open for guests to read. They need to register on the forum but they don't need to be an AMOC member.

Hello notsaV8V,,,or Mr Super Cool,,,,drops the roof, drives the Aston Martin to the airfield. Goes fly his aeroplane for an hour,,,then blasts the Arste back home. Like your style. bow

PS: May I ask, which aircraft do you fly?

Yesterday drove up to Harewood House, near Leeds for their Classic and Motor show. Only 1 AM on display, a green DB7 with some nice wheels.

Today, OCD set in and out with the polisher and all the gubbings. Used that Raceglaze alcantara cleaner on the roof lining with an excellent result - recommended. Anyway, after 3 blasts with the polisher - 2 coats polish and 1 wax - it looks as it should now. cool

Bob, for goodness sake don't ask Binz what he's been flying today and what he had to do.

Afraid I drove mine to see a friend on his death bed, twelve hours later he died.
Six month ago I took him to the Le Mans museum in the vantage and on to a few days in the Dordogne with one of our other mates. He loved the Aston and how the French took to it. RIP Big E

went to york air museum in db9 , excellent time, my 8 year old son convinced me to go in harrier simulator...big mistake, felt like being in jet powered tumble drier!!!.
As always humbled by the bravery of the men and women of the RAF
lovely drive on A64 car felt great as always, we cleaned dead bugs off and put it to bed, the Aston always makes any occasion just that little bit better.

We have a mixed fleet of reasonably interesting General Aviation aircraft at the flying club I'm a member of. Sad to say though, Sunday's trip was just a x-country pootle in a Cessna spam can.

Still beats mowing the lawn which was the other option as suggested by SWMBO!

Today I moved it off the driveway so my grumpy girlfriend could drive to the [same] station as me in her TT. I then followed in my battered old Rangey.

Yesterday I showed her (the car I mean) to my business partner who was on honeymoon when I bought her. And I let him know I didn't bleed the company dry to buy it either!
I then tried to deafen him with the exhaust biggrin

I looked at mine safe and snug in the garage. I marvelled at its shininess, blew it a kiss and said I'd be back soon to give it a run out. At not time was I anywhere near the exhausts whistle

I actually sat in it the other night to skip through some tracks on a new CD as the premium sound is better than what I have indoors smile

Hmmm. Cockers has been quiet today.
You should get some working tags mate, then you wouldn't get those pesky calls!

Why didn't you put it into service mode? Saves getting the calls and you won't know they are tearing the acensoredse out of it along the Fosse Way biggrin
