A bit uncalled for Ray. Even you have been known to make mistakes occasionally. One of my first postings included a picture which I took of a sideways car at Catallina. You followed up by suggesting that it wasn't my photo. You were wrong then. I think that in this case you are having a go at Lee here because you and he don't agree over some little occurrance at Bathurst some years ago. This forum is one of the few that seems to be able to refrain from nasty sniping most of the time - can't we keep it that way please.
Yes, I've done a lot along the way to bite my tongue and help keep it that way...
In the case of 'one of your first posts,' my tongue in cheek comment about you 'not being there that day' was purely because, as I explained in the next sentence, it was one of the most famous moments in the history of the S4.
I wasn't suggesting it wasn't your photo at all, and I thought you realised that. In fact, your next post thanked me for jogging your memory.
As for this subject, I guess I was a little harsh. But I've been hearing in the background lately that some long-timers here are finding that the accuracy for which TNF is famed is being put aside. I would certainly hate to see TNF become another Wikipedia.
At times I spend literally hours poring through magazines checking facts. Then I post about something to correct an issue and someone comes back and tells me I'm wrong. I don't check the facts for nothing.
Let's put the cards on the table...
The S4 Holden had a standard instrument cluster.
The red flag rules are the same for everyone.
An Austin A90 would have to be sleeved to use Ferguson pistons.
I don't want to upset you, Bob. Your pics are a marvellous addition here, but in keeping to the theme of accuracy there are times when comments made have to be corrected. I'm no the only one doing it, and indeed I also make some mistakes. When I do, I don't try to pretend I was right anyway, I accept it.
