Cotland? It's between Bedford and Bunker's Hill. Boom! Boom!  It's the way I tell 'em!

Mrs May's my MP, saw her in Waitrose last week, seems to have a lot more security detail than previously. :lol:

To add insult to injury, Boris is my brother's MP, where did we go wrong?

Not exactly the joke thread... but:

DUP:  Theresa, can we please have our billion pounds for Northern Ireland?

Theresa May: There's no money, sorry.

DUP: Theresa, can we please have our billion pounds for Northern Ireland?

Theresa May: I say again, there's no money.

DUP: Theresa, can we please have our billion pounds for Northern Ireland?

Theresa May: Are you stoopid? There's no money.

DUP: Theresa, can we please have our billion pounds for Northern Ireland?

Theresa May: You are stoopid. I'll bet you can't even spell.

DUP: Yes we can, we can spell anything.

Theresa May: Where's the N in Northern?

DUP: At the start and furthermore at the end too.

Theresa May: Where's the I in Ireland?

DUP: At the beginning.

Theresa May: Where's the f in money?

DUP: There's no f in money.

Theresa May: And that's what I'm trying to tell you....

 

Sorry, JimmyMac, but you'll find out that hi-jacking threads or drifting off the topic is normal round here. Apologies!!

ok if we are going off topic,hypotheticallyif you had a mk1 gt6 in bits,  shell,chassis + engine and box,mk2 gt6 bonnet  would you lemans replica it or restore as near as poss to gt6.

or if you had good a mk 4 spitfire shell,mk3 chassis and running gear and the skills to roundtail the shell would you build a Macau replica from it.

Time permitting of course

No drink or drugs?!! :lol: Not sure how you'll get on with the inmates here!

Replica or original is entirely personal preference, I like originals but I have no problem with replicas. As Pete says John Bonnet's aluminium bodied GT6 look alike is fabulous. It only has a 4 pot engine, so GT4, it didn't need anything bigger being so light.  He was mad to sell it!

Depends what you want the car for!

Personally, I would use the six cylinder engine, spitfire engine frontplate and mount it back in the chassis. Gives near perfect balance. Not so worried about the body, but up in Scotland I reckon a rood of some variety would be handy....Probably use a spitfire tub. You can use a spit bonnet with the engine mounted back too.

There's a couple of guys in and around Edinburgh, were on here a week or so ago. And another chap called Haggis down here, but I'm only guessing where he comes from! :lol: My mother lives in Berwickshire, lovely double garage, I'm sorely tempted to make the move.
