    Thanks SA that sounds incredible. At least you don't have to set the speed limiter to 80 to hold onto your license..(y):)

    Our first van was a ci. We had a great time with her whilst we took the kids with us. Ours had bunks and two doubles , plus a little kids bench bed.
    We've downsized now there's just the two of us.
    Your car looks great fun.

    I've had that in the past. Sometimes a year or two off brings back the enthusiasm.

    You might find getting a MH and wandering all over Europe watching hits the spot for a while.

    I’m surprised you have opted for a front engined rail, Big Daddy from the USA pioneered rear engined rails after an engine explosion blew part of his foot off!.
    Welcome by the way.

    Never been drag racing but always wanted to go. Love all kinds of motor/motorcycle sport.
    Welcome to FUN and enjoy your upgrade to a motorhome.
