Ten at the next one?   Well if you and your dad get another one each done...   It could be even more than that - I've a work in progress, there's John Turner's car, the March was missing.

After 15 years it was my first year at the AGM - and having a ride in one made the trip worthwhile on its own so thankyou for that James.  I'm no longer worried about grip, and am thinking the door locks better be secure Shocked   

The revalation was the ride - I expected no roll and sharp steering but with no load in the back the reputation is for the back end to skip about but it didn't pitch or jiggle or shimmy.  Really beautiful.   The steering is even more direct than expected, a quarter turn into the drive from the road and still only a quarter turn for the next sharp bend and just a quarter turn into the carpark.  You could glue the driving gloves to the wheel and not get into problems. 

The other surprise was first being a "driving gear" not just for hill starts.  The view was very commanding, I'd be willing to sit lower in a special and am wondering if the platform chassis front seats are as high.   All in all its a great package.

It really was an odd feeling being in something so tall and not feel the weight.  No pitch, no roll, but still comfortable.  Brakes beyond reproach.  Direct steering.  What's not to like?
