Just to say hello from across the pond. My car's been taking a rest over the winter months, but will shortly be pounding the tarmac again very soon as the weather is slowly getting better. I have been renewing my two wheeled passion recently, so very few miles on the Torino during the last twelve months or so. But don't worry, she's still here, never going anywhere, and being looked after in her new home where I work. My little workshop is slowly turning into a storage facility for my toys... lol!

I tried to upload a pic but Photobucket is playing silly buggers for some reason.

Will chat and interact a bit more soon. wink.gif

Take care all, Nick.

How do Mick. I'm in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. Had the car ten years now, she's a keeper. Don't do many shows, prefer to drive the old girl than polish her. lol! Sometimes do charity runs for local stuff. Don't go too far if I'm honest, 9mpg hurts a bit. wink.gif

Hello, and welcome back, from across two ponds!

Cambodia in this case. I admire you guys from outside North America - I'm normally in Vancouver - who deal with fuel cost and difficulty with parts availability, and the rest of it... I'm working now on getting an antique tax exemption to get my '66 F100 with rumpity 410 past Cambodian customs.

Yeah, it's an expensive hobby, even more so when the cars are away from their home turf. Shipping, import duty, stupid amounts of tax effectively double the cost of parts. I love it though, couldn't be without it now after ten years.

You are still riding that bike Nick? I suppose if you can ride without becoming somebodies grille ornament it's OK.

One of these centuries i'm hoping to make it over to "Blighty" to see you and Her Majesty and whatever else goes on.

Two wheels

Tom, good to hear from you. The bike thing won't ever leave me alone. It's in the blood now. wink.gif
Just bought another one recently. Always wanted a Vmax, this one's pretty tricked out.
It's almost like the bike version of my car, prods the same emotions and gets similar reactions.

The Torino is my one true love though. wink.gif

I was offered one last week for $1000.

in Phnom Penh. A little scruffy compared to yours. I did not buy it which is why I am still alive and writing this.
