Born Again!

finally, after years of neglect, then years of care and love, the RS today passed its pit inspection and is registered for the first time in 5 years or more. IT LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was grinning like an idiot when the paper work finally went through, i handed over a cheque and screwed my number plates (special plates too mmmmmm....) onto the car. i got to drive the car home fully owned and registered. and, like any RS, it goes nicely too. can see this one causing some red faces in the future.

it has taken lots of effort, love, time and money, and, like any good project, there is more to do. i need to get the back end lowered, i need new tyres, i have some tidying inside the car, the paint needs buffing and you can always do with more power.

YYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!
