that dude who drove the ferrari to italy to deliver the cake...

thats my mate!!!

john smith, i havent seen him for about 5 years and i had no idea he'd made it to the tv!

i spat my tea all over the carpet when i spotted him :D

when i last spoke to him he had just moved from working for an aircooled vw magazine to a different publication (fast car i think) and was hoping for a job with fhm or nuts mag

who would have thunk it that he would get into mainstream tv!

his delivery could do with a bit of a polish but very pleased for him

theres hope for us all!

that light blue one? he hardly ever drove that cos his mrs used it mainly if i remember. like i said its been a while since i saw him.. last time was at the photoshoot at santapod for my beetle... in fact, in the magazine article theres a shot of his legs poking out of my passenger window where he decided to dive through! :D

bless

i see the deep sump, and true your flowing it, but is that all your doing for cooling?

i stayed with an off centred fan (balanced and welded) then cut a square into the firewall, made up a 45degree box section to join it that ran through the passenger luggage space, then cut a hole into the floor that exits above the gearbox

a little mesh for filtering and presto... fresh blown air! also fitted a rad into the flow pipework and mounted it just behind the gearbox

oh and some velocity stacks to help channel the extra air!

word of warning tho, if you go for something like that then make sure your decklid catch is solid and drill some stealth vents behind your number plate

else the car following you will be wearing you deck :D

Getting back the Fifth Gear, I thought the MEO of Ferrari was down right rude, to make cvcomment's about the quality of the cake, even before he'd tried it.not very professional IMO

he's worshipped in his country so i guess he can behave how he likes and get away with it... being honest tho, cant say as i liked the car either.. bit dull and the wheels were too small
