Default Dave Whittock

Went along to the classic car show at Shepton Mallet at the week end (Sunday) on the walk round came across the Bath Motor Club and was just having a chat with one of the members about are cars, name on the badge Dave. The guy seemed to know his stuff know all about are car (coupe) said that he once co drove for Per Eklund how he use to change gear for him with the electric gear change bla bla, (you now had one of them drove one of them been there done that my cats bigger then your cat) well we said are farwells and he gave us his email address so that we could send him some pic's of the cars put the peice of paper in my pocket and went on my way..

Well got home looked at the name on the piece of paper and you've guest it, it was no other then Dave Whittock Per Eklund's navigatator, how bloody small do I feel I was talking to one of the main men from the group B era and I didn't even know it just thought he was a fan, opportunity missed, live and learn..


Bugger..
