Smile Proud Dad

Ha ha - it's not what you're all thinking, but I did want to share with you all the latest addition to our Ford family. Hubbie just took possession of his pride and joy on Saturday - 565hp street registered XD. It's taken about 10 months to build, but the look on his face was priceless and worth the wait as he battled it down our street at about 50kph - small animals and children hid, the birds went silent, and all the neighbours looked out and collectively said "Oh shyte, not another one"!!

Had to laugh - a 20 minute trip from the mechanics to home used 20 litres of racing fuel - guess we won't be using it for Sunday drives to the country!!

You'll have to line up a run with Mr Jucy.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
