    Hahahaha. Till next week.

    Chidge there is a drift day on Westonzoyland airfield (main airfield not the little bit we used to use) on the 1st April. £60, lots of space and me and Clasby are gonna do it.
    Think its a Wednesday so you'll need time off and if Im working that day take this as notice of me having a day off lol.

    There is a photo somewhere doing the rounds of me in the front seat of this Starlet, it aint pretty.
    Savage car though, loud as fuck and 180bhp of mental 4fag in a toy car. Cant wait to see it drifting proper.

    Stiggy you got any pictures of yours when it was black with orange tints?
    Me and Chidge were searching youtube for vids of you in your motor to see how well a starlet could keep up with the big boys.
