    I remember Simon very graciously lending his very expensive V12 Ferrari to someone whoM, after taking advantage of the availability of it, then denigrated Simon in every way he could.

    ****ing ungrateful prick he was, that guy.

    Well, Simon actually lent his V12 to BillA who magnanimously paid for the transport of both vehicles in those pics to and from the event plus gave Simon a lovely, expensive watch at the party we all went to at Bobby's house in Kew.

    Greg's missus supplied the cakes, Rob the champagne and Rob, Klink and I chipped in for the food

    Was a great party and I thank Rob for the effort .... a lovely guy that for some unknown reason loves gossip, is a mountain of knowledge on significant cars that come to Australia and is as funny as buggery with a razor sharp wit, sad we all don't get along but most of you guys are just cants :p

    The 330 was VERY similar to my fiat 2300S, both did about the same in performance for top speed (the 2300 was clocked by the HWP @237kph on the New England highway near Thunderbolt rocks Uralla in 83) and had similar horse and cart suspension which for the period was good but the 365 was a beautiful car to drive and changed my opinion of these OHOS :)

    Yep,can't remember the reason we trucked it back to Marc's but I think it was then that I decided to rebuild the engine.....you can see the RH bank smokin' (and I don't mean what Adrian uses)
    I do remember that you drove the whole distance back 'cos I was ill.

    I don’t mind a glass of red but that’s about as exotic as I’m comfortable with

    The earth is flat and so are batteries on this EV. That's a diesel van towing a petrol generator to save the planet.

    Some of you guys are idiots.
    Obviously the car ran out of juice and needed a kick start to get it home. It's hardly the norm, but idiots like to point this situation out like it's some sort of hypocrisy
