Correct indeed

If anyone wishes to see other work I undertake that isnt necessarily just Saxo's, I can be found on the dreaded Facebook under "D Whitworth Vehicle Fabrication"

What a thoroughly enjoyable dalliance through the history books this afternoon!!!

Can I just thank you publicly for your thread, your pics and write ups are some of the best I have seen on this site....informative, quirky, well researched ( and that's an understatement! ) and wholly positive!

Have to rank this up there with Ben W's and Lowiepete's R5 threads for sheer enjoyment factor and cannot wait for further instalments to arrive1

Keep up the good work, the enthusiasm and the sheer bloody mindedness required to see these through to fruition mate Best regards and wishing you every success

Wow, thank you for the kind words. Makes the time it takes to write some of the updates worthwhile hearing comments like that

Great to hear more updates Danny! Can't wait for the Phoenix Bronze VTR and yet another rare, early Saxo find. The VTR certainly looks like an interesting project, very Max Power
