Ha! The Hughes home: nice garage, with what seems to be a house attached behind it.
Ye've got your priorities right mate!

Are you opening a Beemer dealership?

At least the real car is tucked up inside, out of the snow.
As you say the important cars safe and warm 8) 8)

Yeah to be fair I was pretty sick of the scene foe a good while, and only in last couple of months has the desire to compete returned, and even then I had thought of a car change, but as usual I can't seem to get away from Tamworths finest, still plenty of unfinished business :D

I have a very busy couple of weeks ahead, but after that I hope to finish the nearside suspension and then drop the engine and box back in.
