    Nice couple of Porkers.
    Is that Chi's old ITB'd Trophy?

    I'm hoping to put a few miles on my Trophy over the winter so that it's ready for a pasting come spring time :smile:

    Are the Porsches and Ferraris yours, too? :smile:

    I thought I recognised the ITB'd beast! It's a good, solid car. I remember him putting it up for sale and being very tempted to buy another Trophy! I couldn't really justify it though and my better half would have probably throttled me. Mind you, she was interested in one of his modified Mazda MPS's :tongueout:

    What are the plans for the T whilst it's off the road for winter?

    I wish they were mate, there not :smile:.

    haha yeah its such a great car, i know the feeling its my second car so only use it on good days, with it being off the road im going to get a few bits done on it. Needs undersealing and being a trophy going to check the state of the dampers although they were recently refurbed. apart from that its small things like tidying up the engine bay and strip , clean and paint calipers. :wink: yeah i know hes selling a red MPS at the moment thats also a good car!

    you doing much to yours over the winter sharkyuk?

    Sadly I don't think he'll sell the black MPS... unless offered a LOT of money! Mind you, he took the red one up to Scotland on a trip we had a couple of years back and it went like stink! :smile:

    Over winter I'm hoping to get my Trophy back home mate. It's been away for a long, long time and will be coming back with a few modifications. All I will be doing is running it in and ironing out issues and niggles so that it's all ready to go when the better weather months arrive. Well, that's the plan!

    I hate to think what state #165 is in. It's been stood out in all weathers for the last two years without an engine / gearbox and missing various parts :worried:
