    I now have a strange picture in my mind of a small (miniature?) yet perfectly formed, leather clad Jezo_O suddenly appearing screaming, howling and yelping around a hospital ward on a very small, yet fast and noisy, motorcycle, scattering nurses, midwives and other sundry medical staff to the four corners of the maternity suite:eek:, whilst your mum looks on smiling happily and serenely:) as your dad grins to himself proudly, thinking "That's my boy!!":cool:

    Bugger me! I really do need help.:scream: Anyone seen the forum mind bleach anywhere??
    Or perhaps my brain just needs a total re-wire.:confused: That would be useful on sooooo many levels!
    Senior?? Moi?? Oh yes ..... but how polite.:) Kind even!:) Especially for such an undeserving old sod!:p

    Passed my test in the farms reconditioned ex army LWB Land Rover. Learnt to drive around the farm and then had a few lessons on the road from the other farm workers. Tester was impressed I could double de clutch. Truth was the syncro was bolloxed and it was the only way to get it into gear on downshifts. Got my bike test a week later.

    Took my lessons in a Datsun 100 & 120, took my test in the 100 at Greys test centre, Essex, great little car, they both had 'racing' style seats too, when I was racing Fiat 127's (stands for Fix It Again Terry) the first thing I did was get one out of a 100 from the scrappies, easy to fit and take out when I (often) needed to build another 127!
    My 1st road car after my test was a Ford 100E that was originally owned by a female film star, she had a sliding sun roof put in from new.

    I'd love a MK1 Lotus Cortina, settle for a Mk2 of the same though.

    Bike test on one of these :)
    Yamaha DT 125 :)
    Fitted with a 175 engine cos I blew it up :(
    Blew the 175 engine up as well :sob:
    I’m not very good with 2 strokes :confused: 8BE3D93C-DCF0-4BDA-BA20-5D132D2CDBA0.jpeg car test in one of these :)
    But it was in IRR green when I was in the RAF :) 51E6016A-FAE5-43E5-86FF-6F1FFA4D801A.jpeg HGV3 in one of these :)

    Again while I was in the RAF :)
    Few years later when they changed the categories to LGV I got to drive HGV2 because they put them together in one category :grinning: 9E6C26B2-F27B-4FDA-8774-DB0BE71D7BAB.jpeg

    I pretty sure I passed my bike test on my new Suzuki GT 250M Ram Air, LOO476P.
    Now I do wish I could get that back! bikes 2 (2).jpg
    Please ignore the slight indiscretion of once owning a B*W, but we all make mistakes through our life!
    I think I'm alright to still go to heaven!:)

    Ha ha ha....When I started reading this thread, for some reason I was expecting modern/semi-modern cars. But page after page I saw vintage cars- some which I never knew existed. I could not have expressed my surprise in any other way but the question. But of course all in good humor and glad to know I am in the midst of such highly experienced but young-at-heart people :)
