18/6! 18/6!

But once everywhere. A Cortina 1.6L. The model is significant.

It’s just as well that this intimidating character won Overall Champion in class, because I wouldn’t like to meet him had he lost.

Yet another day with a PSA connection et pourquoi pas?

I really like starting by hand, provided it’s not me doing it of course.
