Yes I think most forums have quietened down a lot but we are keeping this one going no matter what! Facebook seems to have helped kill forums off but there's still a few of the old regulars on here keeping it alive and a steady trickle of new members joining up which is good!

I'm doing well thanks, still got the same SJ, think it's i've had it 15 years now :lol: plus a few other and i'm keeping well.

Hows about you? still got a barn full of toys?

Looking forwards to the new build, I seem to remember you starting a vit based buggy with a rover V8 many years ago.

hi Scottie
yes I did build one with a rover engine that worked out ok and was eventually sold on, I did however modify the chassis and hence it was never road legal this time I want a completely unmodified chassis so I can retain the reg number and keep it road legal
