Oh aye Andrew 4 years I'm here flying the flag for Ireland and not a sausage until these blow-ins come along Barry in his to nice 360, Joe in his his lovely yellow 308, and no doubt the IT man will be along in a while in his (really really nice 308 that I seen last weekend), all while my car lies in bits in the garage. I know who my friends are

I'm joking really, thank you for our little corner of FL. Hope we can add some good stuff to this section.

No worries, happy to help you all with a section here.

How is your 308 coming along? I'm sure you've seen the Tech section has some great projects being worked on. Hope to see some of your info there as well

Yes c'mon ENZ what's happening to the 308 oh wait, I'm supposed to be answering that question not asking the same thing

Up to about 2 weeks ago I had no idea what was happening either. But I now have a guy who'll change 5th/4th bulk ring for me in the box so the engine/box should be going to him in as soon as I can get time. I might re-paint the car as there is a couple of little marks that are annoying me.
I do plan on having it back on the road by xmas though I'll not be driving it in any bad weather. Andrew I think it might be in the projects section. It's been so long since I actually did anything to it I can't remember.

The long term plan was once I was happy that it is finished and sitting right, I was for selling it and buying the mates Testarossa. However the more I look at 308's the less I want to sell it. ITGuy was at a show I ran last week (must put up the photos) in Archies old 308 which is a beauty and it really put me in love again. So no decisions until (wait there's the door bell, back in a mo)...........................WOOHOO that my handbrake cables for the Lancia so I can finish it today, sorry where were we, yes no decisions until the car is finished then if I decide to keep it I'll go looking for some 16" Speedlines and a tunie exhaust.

Right got to go fit my cables.

Hi fellow Ireland based members. Been here a while also so just highlighting our presence. Very pleased to meet ye all. For info...took a holiday in Blighty to visit family earlier this month and took the opportunity to trailer the Mondial to The Ferrari Centre in Maidstone in Kent for a service, belts and a few other "unexpected" jobs. Recommend them very highly. Most excellent service and most excellent chaps. Well worth a look if you need some work done. Will post the photos they took for me during the works. QI. That's all for now...Elaine.

Dermot,
We'll give you honorary membership, but only if you take me for a spin in that beautiful Scud if I ever make it over to California...
