I will be installing a boost gauge once I've finished on my current project (you'll all see ;)) and once I'm happy that the turbo on my car is working reliably I will be sticking a boost controller on the system (a.k.a bleed valve) to give my car a little more "breath". So a rolling road day might be on the calendar for me early next year. Give me a shout if you want to come along.

I know it's taken a while. but I finally got round to taking my Gaydon pics off of the camera. I'm afraid there aren't many as it isn't too easy taking pictures with the little man, but here they are:

The earliest arrivals. From left Bailes, me, Captain Jack, Nollington Hards & Omega (who got there before any of us) on the far right:

My little man, Jack, filling his face after a walk round the museum:

The line up whilst Jack was eating. From closest: Omega's, Plod's, Mine, Doggy's, Captain Jack's, Nollington's & Disco's C5

The full house (minus Omega) just before I left at 4pm:

A load of strange blokes with cameras:

Some nice pics there Stu.

Did you ask Jack if it was OK to loose the 406 BTW?

He's happy whatever he's in as long as Daddy's driving it. May cause some confusion for him though. Up until now everytime he sees a BMW he shouts "Grandad's" after his one. Any Fords he shouts "Grandma's" where Mum has our old Mondeo & he spots Peugeots as "Daddy's". He may be behind in speech, but he can spot symbols with no bother.

Be interesting to see if BMWs are still "Grandad's" or "Daddy's" after a couple of weeks.

Hi guys. Been a while, but thought I'd pop back for a nostalgia moment as Jack & I took a trip to Gaydon today. He's totally mad on Lego (as those of you that have me on Facebook have probably seen) & they're having a Brick Week with Lego activities. Didn't get too many pics this time either as even now he doesn't stay still for long, but how's this for a comparison on last time we went:

All good mate. Still driving (& earning £5k more than I did managing). New house still in 1 piece, but the builders bodge signs are all starting to show themselves now. Also still got the Zafira - 4 years now, doubling the previous record held by my 406 & only just hit 80k. Got eyes out for another at the mo as I don't fancy my luck with the newer ones & want to grab another clean old shape before they're all gone. Something akin to what you did with the 1st Dogmobile.

Jack turns 9 this Sunday. Reckon we should be relatively safe with the Kevin & Perry though as he's a lot different to most kids his age. Never bothered with video games so not glued to a screen like most (his Lego takes the place of that, but can live with that as he's so creative with it) & still loves his hugs even now. Downside is he's a sensitive soul & things get to him much more than most.

I am 90% for Pugfest but FSC I found boring a few years ago (though they did have a rolling road!)

Let's hope a certain Mr Dean 'know-it-all' Emery* doesn't attend either...
