Too old to drive?.......

This decision is very difficult to take. Our generation value freedom of independent travel very much and have a sceptical attitude to anybody younger having a judgmental opinion of our driving abilities. I've seen some frightening driving from inexperienced youngsters too so it's not just us that m...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

The big shift has happened! I put the wooden wheels on the rear but couldn't get the right angle for the chassis when they were on the front so I left them off and landed it on the discs.
