Fantastic! Congratulations on a dream realised!

I’m very envious and expect you will love it enormously.

That’s a tremendous thing Greggers. Immediately I’m envious and like a spoilt child I’m going to be really grumpy until I get one.

If, at any point, between now and getting it you post "x sleeps 'till..." then you need to know that we, CTF, will hunt you down and rip your emotional control unit still beating from your chest.

I'm tremendously jealous.

I'll be honest Greggers, I didn't much care for you before, now I hate you and will bad-mouth you behind your back. Naturally to your face I'll pretend to be really pleased for you, but secretly you'll be 100% cnut in my opinion forever.

Stunning car.

That sounds like an ace idea!

I am still virtually priapic with excitement. I keep thinking "Why did I defer delivery until after the holiday? fcuk. Oh wait, that's it. It's because the fam would kill me were I to have announced I wasn't going on holiday with them because I wanted to stay at home and play with my new toy. Yes, that's right. It was a simple "live or die" decision. Good call me!".

Wonderful car Gregg, congratulations!

I have a (more realistic!) dream of getting my hands on an early V8 Vantage at some point.

Childhood dream realised. V12 Vantage S. Like this one.

In that colour.

Manual or flappy?

I always thought you were a wise man.

You will enjoy it. A lot. Hearing the start-up never gets old.

Flappy. There are no 7s manuals yet available anywhere near my spending power.

What tyres are you running on yours as a matter of interest? This one has regular P Zeroes (not Corsas) which seem like a reasonable option. The Michelins get good reports though.

I have the Corsas. I've never had any trouble with them (apart from punctures). I run a different set of wheels with Sottozeros in winter though.

Right now: in the Cathay lounge at Vancouver scoffing bbq pork buns faster than they can be steamed for me.

34h 25 mins to go.

What are the odds on Greggers having pork bun induced coronary at 33,000 feet and not getting to drive the Aston...
