At last! ... the sun has shone and the salt is finally off the roads, time to dig my old MX5 out of storage. Have barely driven it since last Oct and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it ... gotta love pop up headlamps! :cool:

Yup, decisions, decisions! :lol:

Made even tougher as there are two small diesel Audis as well :eek: The white one is my wife's and the grey one is my daily driver, which has now done 135,000 miles.

Hi John,

Were you the John with a Guards red 964 and an owners website that was ever so useful? I seem to recall seeing you at Cornbury house or some event down south?


Welcome and a fine specimen of a 924 you bagged there!!

Cheers,

Bert

Mmm, I doubt it. I did attend one "Front Runner" thing at Cornbury House some years ago, but I was in a red 968 at the time. That to date is my only visit to Cornbury House. I do have a personal website at http://www.arthurlea.com but (as yet) there isn't much 924 stuff on it.

Ahhh, just realised ... it's John Miles you are confusing me with, he had a superb 964 website, now defunct I think, as I think he has emigrated, although he still does some amazing photography. Just to square the circle, I did once own a Tahoe Blue 964 which won a "photo of the year" prize on Mr Miles's website. The Porsche community is a small one!

Errr, no, don't think so! :???: His old 964 website seems to have vanished, but I did find his photography site http://www.johnmilesphotography.com/
