Default The Red Terror is Home!

After a few months of on and off work, the RedTerror came home yesterday.

I was sitting at my desk and suddenly the sound of 6.9 litres of thunderous exhaust and engine rumble filled the air.

Shiny bright red with sparkling chrome wheels, it was simply gorgeous as it cruised past and into the parking bay!

Thank you Godfather for the umpteen hours of hard labour involved and your meticulous attention to detail!

I truly appreciate it very much!

You want the name of a good muffler shop?
Does this now mean that Mr. P will finally unveil his Gleaming B to the world?

Thank you to everyone concerned...

I will be giving the Red Terror a bit of a wash and clean over the next few days (in case I take it to the Concours).

Just give me a few more days before I take some fresh pics

Professor

Nothing wrong with the muffler...
It is the sheer compression and engine power

As for GB, I'll let the Godfather explain

TAREK

Not Marlboro red, rather a special red devised by Yours Truly, known at the paint company with its own code and the name as Michel's Red or Terror Red!

Mark

I'll be having and 'anti-rain' dance on Saturday (for Sunday)

No come on the Red Terror looks shocking just joking Michel! LOL.

6.9 looks wonderful check out the shiny wheels on Sunday.

By the way Michel how is the anti-rain dance going? it's raining here at the Bay today and tomorrow.

I want to vacuum the 260E tomorrow and finally finish my pre-Concourse preparation.

How is the weather looking for Sunday's Concours no rain forecasted for Parramatta Park I hope?

Cheers Tim.
