    Here ya go Mr Spoons, we've finished with your car. There's a few scrapes on it, but nothing that won't polish out.

    No but Matt Neal is matey, so it'll be the back bumpers coming to grief, you know mr plato will have a target painted on the back of Matts veccy don't you

    By the way, don't know about this years car but gotta say spoons, yours is certainly better looking than the racer. Thank goodness they aren't gonna be sponsored by Holiday Inn this year
