Hello All,

I spent most of saturday night in the marcos going from party/pub to party/pub due to 30th birthdays etc and it's nights like that' that make owning such a car an incredible joy.

The "wow's" from passers by and the comments made at the petrol station and the times when the road is clear and you can realise the performance available

Maybe that can help spur some of the other builders on

Olly - can't wait for that kind of Saturday evening!
My Saturday night was thinking how I could fit a Cat Convertor into the tunnel and stop it from digging trenches  .
Perhaps you should organise a night run!

I'm look forward to this too, I feel suitably spurred on! Also, just watched your youtube video it definitely looks good from the driving seat.

The video was a few weeks ago when I had just finished the car and had done 500 miles or so (just starting to stretch it's legs!), I did plan to overtake the Aygo on the first stretch but decided to wait hence the long boring amount of normal driving!!!?

How about some kind of 'Top Gear' type challenge - I've always fancied a straight blast from Dover to St Tropez.  Now that would be a Saturday night blast in our little GT's  .

ETA Nice vid by the way - where did you get the rear view mirror, and how is it fixed to the dash (stud, with a nut tightened from below presumably?).

Nice little video, makes me wish my little car was on the road.

By the way the red car was a Peugeot 107, yes I know an Aygo in disguise

The mirror is mounted on to the top flat section on the dashboard using the using the swivel base supplied.

Not necessary. Just come along to the IMM in Switzerland in June. See http://www.imm2011.ch/ for details.
