Seems to be the season for accidents, a tired driver got me just before Xmas. Concentrates the mind when you see a car coming out of an oncoming line of traffic into your lane at 60 mph...... :shock:

Only damage apart from the car was to my clothes and wallet so could've been worse.

I also fitted a silve powder coated rocker cover cover in place of the old flakey black one that was on there

Glad to hear the straight-six is running well. Had the Sabre Six out on Jan 1 and it seemed better than usual - damp atmosphere?
