Re: Spaceframe Imps

Hi smartfella. I know your uncle Noel and your cousin Steven, that photo looks like knockalla. My dad always talked about your Noel, their days of hillclimbing in the 70's. I remember being their house when I was a kid. Hope he is keeping well, I haven't heard from him in a few years. Iain Leinster
