Can't beat collection day on a new car! My 111R was delivered in a covered trailer to the house (dealer was 300+ miles away). That wasn't the same as collection at the dealer. Won't do that again!

Fantastic, looking forward to the next instalment. Vividly remember my dad collecting his Ice Blue S1 Exige in April 2001 :D

Now I know who you are! I've never met you, but I have met your dad on a few occasions and given I had an Ice Blue 111S - that S1 Exige was / is something of an icon to me. :thumbup:

And your car, I saw that just after you'd finished it over at The Buckles on a nice summer evening. I am right aren't I? Orange, Honda'd and really stunning - that the one?

Yes, I do remember your car being there - awesome :clap:

We've stopped the Tuesday evening thing, we now meet at 10am for breakfast so we've had a few visitors who could normally not make it - quite a few from over t'hills. /shamelessplug ;)
