    The base of those rails are plastic and can be recovered with NO problems. "No biggie."

    Here's an ALFA that was at on of our EMRA races at Pocono last year. Check out the neat Duc pit-bike.
    My favorite Spiders are the old drum-brake jobs.

    I was thinking the same thing... A little more tubing, and they could've had a new chassis!

    I think if the police cars looked like that in Dallas, they'd fit in better! We have so many Lambos, Vanquishes, Bentley GTs, DB9s running around it's disgusting! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm just waiting to see a DPD in an exotic to keep up with those guys! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Thank you Dr! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] It'll be nice to enjoy the company of some new cars and enthusiasts!

    I myself, I would love a new Elan, but being I'm very tall, I don't think it would happen!

    Each city council in the UK is/or was able to choose what type of motor they would like to use for traffic. Sadly, most are using Volvo's at the moment. In the south, around the M25, motor patrols are being fased out in favour of cameras in hopes of saving a few pounds. I would think that the picture was taken around the middle 80's as the square pattern was changed to blue and floresent green in the 90's. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers.gif[/img]
