Sorry to confuse peeps, I thought it was a well known term for woodies, vans and pickups. :o

After all, we didn't get a chance to celebrate 60 years of them last year.

Sadly not, there's a music festival in town the day before and its my mates 50th so I don't think I'll be in any fit state. Long gone are the days when we'd go out drinking and stumble in from a club at 3am, then get up the next day and nail it down the M1 to a Mini Show.

But on the upside, do visit a Ferrari Owners club event and let them overhear you discussing your 'collection of several SWBs from the early 1960's'!

Previously it was only Landie owners that had that fun (but the baling twine holding their trousers up always spoiled the illusion)

:lol:

Can we have a new section on the forum called Grumpy Old Men were we can all vent our annoyances with the world. I've got loads of stuff I want to share with everyone.

PS Goff I'm not having a go 'cos I find polishing tyres, removing wheels and putting disco lights under show cars equally stupid, especially when they have been brought to the event in the back of a truck. They should all be rounded up a chucked in the lake.
