Ha, ha, Yup, the Yellow car is Andy's.

Rich is convinced I chose it to piss him off, as Andy also works at Minispares & Rich had been confidently predicting that he wouldn't make it all the way to Blyton on its first run out. As it turned out he was 1/2 right as it took Steve & Andy 4 hours to get back after numerous unscheduled stops due to minor mechanical issues.

I didn't have the heart to tell Rich that Pete chose the cars this year :o

Is the color on the YHL 466 Fiesta Yellow? Looks rather nice.

Hi Andreas,

So sorry to see your sad end to Blyton this year. I assume from the pic that a valve head parted company with the stem.

What an absolute bummer!

Contact me direct, I have something for you.

It is Fiesta Yellow, although Andy's version of it is a little more yellow than most. A very nice shade though.

Thank you Mark,

I does look nice indeed. Having new interior in Powder Blue/Gold Brocade, I'm stuck with the paint choice, hence my interest. Fiesta Yellow/Surf Blue are the ones to choose from, of course.
YHL shade would have been the winner, if it was original. Mind you - what shade it is- if you go to a paint shop to buy it?
