jane and dave turnage passed through switzerland on the way from france to italy. we met up with them and had a wonderful afternoon. engine bays were inspected and discussed at length (the turnage 541s was equally scrutinized!). engines were fired up, the sun was shining. at long last we were then off for a (by that time mid-afternoon) lunch. it was great meeting up with you! it would have been the perfect day if it wasn't for one of cars being quite substantially damaged on the way home- however the car will be back on the road again in a few months time.

yes we certainly did have fun - an excellent trip (we didn't quite make Italy, although we got very close on one of the passes above Interlaken).

Many thanks to the Swiss Jensen owners who made us feel very welcome on our arrival in Switzerland (their clean and well presented cars definitely showed us up!). We are now planning to go back next September!!
