    We recorded it. Chloe did a pretty good job of holding the camera on the speedo.
    Then just repeated watches of the video with the stopwatch going. Consistently in the 4.6 to 4.7 range.
    Obviously not the most accurate method, given all sorts of possible errors, but near enough. :)

    62 years of being around the cars .

    Factory was only fitted at the factory as a high cost extra .

    The rear boot a/c as per the factory was what the American dealers fitted to the cars ,the build sheets for my car state dual a/c (factory fitted) Prahran radio fitted under dash I'd say an agreement with the dealer Kellows .

    similar in idea .blowing cold air on your neck . The boot air never worked as well as the front units and took up far to much boot space .

    I can find out re the Prahran radio deal with the Rolls -Royce dealer , enough of the mechanics are still alive ..just.

    I said HE has to do a Le Mans start.
    The rest of us would already be in our cars.

    He'd still probably win, mind you...

    Here you go. I can only imagine what this would look like in a GTR.

    Blink and you'd miss it, probably! :eek:

    I knew that car when Julian Sterling owned it and a small bunch of other select cars and other paraphernalia including a scale model of a Bleriot aircraft hanging from the ceiling!
    Very imposing car.

    ....and also I worked at Ateco when they first started importing Suzuki's,before Neville's time though.

    Thought you'd all be jealous :D
