"Thanks Richard", there's always good fireworks displays all around the big wide country down under, I was in bed by 10pm so didn't see any of them, and of course!, there will be a #343 build soon.

  "Happy New CBG Year" :-D

Been watching the fireworks in Australia. You guys do it right! Beautiful! Happy brand New to you, #343 soon!

You have a special kind of talent! This definitely is an eye catcher!

"Thanks Bones", my first set of wheels at the age of 16 (before I even had a licence!) was a Hotted Up Customised 53 FJ Sedan, used to "Go Like the Clappers" in a straight line, but wasn't real flash at going around sharp bends & corners, wish I still had it :-D
