Re: Ultra low emmission zone

On YouTube look for Harry's Garage and his road trip to see the northern lights in a 1969 RR Silver Shadow that was purchased off ebay for less than £5k, a great adventure. Then you can find his road trip to the Sahara desert in a Ferrari Testarossa. Thank you, hadn't seen those - I like his videos...

Re: Ultra low emmission zone

I keep reading that in my head as Rolls Royce. Just had an image of you wafting into the EZ escorted by motorcycle outriders sweeping the hoi poloi out of your way.

Re: Website not secure ?

We still have to log in on here, which means a password is going unencrypted. I'm sure everyone has good hygiene and uses a different and secure password for each site ( :lol: ), but it's still a good idea to make people think more about online security. Seconded.

yes - 911 with PDK and launch control - drove one at Silverstone a couple of years ago...
