Hey Grant,

Very nice AM doing a very respectful 130kmh down the French motorway past Toulouse yesterday. In convoy with an E type and a Pagoda SL. It had a sticker on the boot saying it was on a Viet Nam to Myanmar tour. Had a little bit further to go then...

Real Ferraris I assume. My C-V8 said to them, what are you looking at, I'll take on both of you. I had to intervene.

Good to see the Transporter Bridge is still up and running. And having that same awful colour it had when I used it in 2005. Well worth a visit, nice piece of old mechanical engineering.
