    You're right guys. i shoudn't have been doing it. and I wasn't even trying to go fast. I was moving off from a rural junction in a stream of cars all doing the same thing fairly sedately. I've no excuse the law is the law. I suppose my peeve is that they already give a degree of leniency and allowance for innaccuracy by setting plus 10 percent and plus 2 mph as the prosecution level, in my case 35. and i was only 1 over that. Still, hands up. I done it. Now booked for my driver awareness day.

    having just been zapped at 36 in a 30, I read the paperwork which told me the criteria for prosecution is the speed limit plus 10 percent plus 2mph. In my case I'm 1 over and feel a bit peeved, but going to court and losing will be far too costly and the penalty more severe. I'm going on the naughty boy course , what a great 65th birthday present to myself. Oh, and your mate is a complete idiot to take such a big risk.
  5. Well done Pete. Great weather for it !
  6. Send me some pics, I could be tempted. I assume no IVA ?

    Sorry to hear of your bad luck Pete. Hope you are ok. John
  8. Cheers Pete. The more I look , the more I want it. Cash ready ................
  9. Hello Ian I checked on it earlier out of curiosity and saw it was sorned, and got the 'Urge'. My other toys are nearly all gone now and the return to a bit of raw driving again now I'm retired has a lot of appeal. I dont want to build again from scratch, and a lot of my blood and sweat still decorates 'Smokey'. Nothing else has been able to replace the grin, the smell, the feel and the pride of driving my own 2b. Reunited might be good for us both.
  10. Can anyone help trace my 2b please ? Its easy to identify, the number is B2 RHE The gentleman I sold it to in 2009 lives in Oxford and I've lost his details. He doesn't seem to be on here either. I think his name is Graham Jones. there is now room for Old Smokey to come home again, and I need to see him and chat to the present owner about .................. Also there is no Area Sec for the Thames Valley.....................(My old role ). Any help appreciated Once a hoody always a hoody JP
  11. Our friends Corsa ticked for quite while, till it snapped and the car ended up in the crusher. Find another one would be my choice.
  12. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I've only got good memories of Richard, and have sent him a nice message via ebay wishing him well. John
  13. Hi those pics look like my car, which i loaned to gbs for the prototype conversion. ( I recognise some small features which tell me its mine ). Well worth it in my opinion. I know it seems a lot compared to the value of the average 2b, but it will change your car so much.
  14. And there's a few remnants of the once-vibrant Thames Valley Region about these parts if you want more help. We revelled in home visits to sort build problems out I'm close by in Twyford if needed.
