Having just found this thread, I was going to have a go at the Mancunian jester for his picture purporting to be me, until i found this one!!!

Well, I'm just gabberflasted that you seem to imply that late 30's / early 40's is old!!!!!

If you didn't consider OLDER to be equivalent to OLD maybe you wouldn't be so "gabberflasted"!

Ah, but technically not BRG so I'm ok for a good while yet. Officially the colour is LNRG (Lotus New Racing Green) according to the blurb at the time, I'll be putting a stripe on it yet ;-) .
