Geoff 'Uncle' P. Runs Rings Around the Journos!

Mr. 'Ponch' Ponchard from Wheels magazine spends a day on the assembly line and drowns in a pool of sweat fitting brake calipers. I guess a bit of hard work was a new experience.

Except cast your minds back to an article where our own Geoff 'Uncle' Polites spends a day on the assembly line including fitting brake calipers. All I saw was a guy in overalls whistling a tune and taking it easy. All in a day's work for our guy (he he he).

Now, if Superman wasn't in a wheelchair these days I'd be making statements like.........

And in the meantime I wonder how many GM Execs were working on the block boring/honing line in the LS1/gen3 plant (LOL).

Disclaimer:
In said previous article, people in background with spanners checking brake caliper bolts were in no way a reflection of 'Uncle's' assembly line abilities. :s6: :s3 :s5

hehe, looks like number 4 is way ahead. :s3

As to our benevolent Ford leader Mr. Polites (he to whom we mere Ford loving mortals bow in reverence :s5 ), any man that can go to the States with a model car, ask for $500 million bucks and get it, IS Superman! :s6:

By answering via option 4, you are all neglecting the best answer which I would have thought is number 1. Geoff did it easy!!!!!!!

RAPTOR launches himself onto top of Pete's "I gotta get even list" (he he)

GEOFF P is completely understood by AP. Marriage: why should single men be happy? (LOL) As for ego, no way Geoff - anyone who has met you knows better (and I mean that). Besides, it was more a joke at poor old Ponch!

AP rolls off into a stupored slumber........
