Haha. Yeah, no sympathy here either. I'll be 47 this year and I swear it was only a year or two years ago that I was 37.

You youngsters have nothing to worry about. Just wait till your brain slows down, your bones ache through hours laid on concrete floors and every job on the car takes 3 times longer than it did 30 years ago :?

Add to that the bonus of thinking whether the project you started will ever be finished whilst you're in a fit and capable state to drive it.

When I was a lad I had knobblies on my car not on the palms of my hands :(

Old Dave - with auxiliary lamps at the correct height for the period! Brings back happy memories of a discussion with a scrutineer who measured the height of our lights from the top of the kerb!
Those were the days. Retrieved my 1972 competition licence from my old man cave today! :lol:

Got a rollocking from the plod for obscuring the stick on number plate. Too tight to buy another I hand painted the one for the front panel :P

I think so. But then I'm too old to remember :oops: It may come to me at 3 o'clock in the morning, a good time for remembering things I can't remember at 3 o'clock in the afternoon.

I've also got some Rally Specials from the 70's. The sidewalls have cracked. Anyone know if the Rubbabild advertised by Halfords works? I need them sorting for Blyton.
