I looked up the new Jensen site last night. Very nice EXCEPT in the models section. With shock and dismay I found no pic of SP and only a paltry couple of throw away lines in the S!!! section.
I rang Calver.R and complained. He explained that he doesn't "do" the website and just supplies material.... anyway could care less. He was irritable as he was knitting at the time. "just f%$# off and take your pill". I said I would put TimSP onto him! Kenny38 8)

I'd say it's a VERY smart looking web site!
What's an SP?

OK, Martin. That's another entry under your name in my book of real and imagined insults.

Kenny,
while you are sorting the issue out regarding the lack of SP. Can you open a new case? For the act of improper use of an FF? Due to completely tasteless wheels. Lovely car, but what a terrible shame!!

Hi Phil. Have to tell you that FF won People's Choice at the last national Jensen Rally. Does this confirm your theory about Australian taste? Seriously though this particular FF is a top example of the marque and i would think best in world....well anyway hard to better. Owner likes a bit of bling and has spared no expense. Owner made a very good living as a windscreen fitter including Jensen rear screens. He was the first person insurance called to refit new screens for Ferraris, Mazzas and just about all prestige highly insured cars both in Australia and O/S. I like your new haircut. I found Blackpool so absolutely vulgar with skin heads with full body tatoos and that was just the women. So awful that when i remarked on this i received a rebuke from the concierge at my hotel. "It is alright for you with your posh accent". I did like the haddock n chips though.Kenny38 :lol:

Maybe you should try Grimsby Fish n Chips. Even better than Blackpool. I think this is why the next JOC International is in Hull!

Ahh yes Kenny, Blackpool won the peoples choice following a recent Australian tourist survey. I thought it a bit odd at the time, but it all makes sense now. :D
