On the way to school today, I clocked up 234567 miles Shocked

For our European members, this equates to 375307 km which isn't quite as exciting. The last time the odometer showed consecutive numbers was 123456 and next time will be 345678.

I didn't get a photo as I was duelling with a 911 Carrera in lane 3 of the M4 at the time but I still felt it appropriate to record the moment on here Very Happy

There or there abouts, Jim - depends on how you measure the distance to that great big white ball up there The average distance is reckoned to be 238,857 miles (384,400 km) so not quite on the way back yet Very Happy

Closer to home, the circumference of the earth is a smudge less than 25,000 miles (40,000 km) so that means I've been round 9 times already Shocked

Hahaha, OK Charles, I was a bit out as I thought it was about 234+.but then which phase?

Anyway Your car is doing well, I think an engine rebuild in that? I'm still looking around, mostly Germany and watching a couple B10 V8's. I've a couple lookers in Oz for mine but nothing concrete. Was hoping it would pay for another here so I don't have to bleed the bank a/c.

One I may pounce on soon is at a great price, V8 etc & just what I want, but unregistered, need to investigate further. It's been up for a while & I've got the feeling it may go soon after Winter.
Cheers mate.
